Standing on The Rock

Bird standing on rocks

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Through fortitude I’ll win

I will never give up or in

I have Christ’s power within

To help me stay strong

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Standing Ovation


This very place

Where I once stood

Weak and frightful

Wondering if I could

Now I stand

And all’s well and good

I’m feeling strong

As I hoped I would

This brings the thought

Had I not in Him stood

If life now

Would be this good

It would not

For its understood

In His great strength

Is my livelihood

Rhyme

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.  (Jesus) John 15:5 

 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Reflections on Prayer

Shadorma poem about prayer--prayer plant photo
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

While caring for my Prayer Plant I noticed some of its leaves were a healthy looking, large and bold green, but others were weak looking, curled up or shriveled up brown.  This got me to thinking upon my prayers which are sometimes large and bold, other times weak or filled with doubt, and even at times non-existent.  Thus, this poem was inspired and created as I was reflecting.
