Walking Uphill

Stairs, step by step, walking upward

Step by step

You will make it soon

Fortitude

Certitude

Determined steps always

Keep moving forward

Shadorma

This poem is based on an experience I had this summer where I faced a block walk up a steep hill, i had already walked nearly 4 miles, it was a hot day, I had no water with me, there was no place to stop and rest. I was tempted to quit, turn around, give up, but I didn’t and I am glad. It was difficult but I made it, slowly, one step at a time. And, as I look back now that was one of my best days, as I felt I had accomplished something that at the time seemed impossible.

Sometimes life is that way. Sometimes we want to just quit, give up, stop caring, stop trying, for just getting through the day seems like we are walking up a steep hill, with no place to stop and take a break, no refreshment or reprieve in sight, but if we keep moving forward, slowly, we will make it—one step at a time.

Never. Ever. Give Up.

In Obedience

Clouds

Chasing thoughts

That swirl like clouds

High, lofty

Low, gloomy

Casting them down in Christ and

Captivating them

Shadorma

casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:5

Abundance

Lavender plant abundantly blooming

Abundant

Blessings in the Lord

Plethora

Opulence

Of grace, love, mercy,

Faith and hope in Christ

Shadorma

And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 1:14

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3
