Shalowm Shalowm

Isaiah 26:3 verse

Perfect peace.

Provided by

The One in who created me.

His workmanship, encased by

His love.

Cinquain

This poem is based on Isaiah 26:3. I have prayed that verse many times over myself at night before shutting my eyes to sleep and as I read that verse this morning I wondered for the first time just what the original words for “perfect peace” were. An interlinear word search showed me that both words mean the same, or as we would say “shalom shalom” the highest peace possible. What a blessed way to sleep at night!

Works Of Art

Horse Sculptures by Dixie Jewett of Dayton ,OR

At

First glance

I may seem

Ordinary

Yet if you will stop

To take a closer look

You may be quite surprised

You’ll see I that am a unique

Creation of God’s workmanship even though

At first glance I may seem ordinary.

Dectina Refrain

Just as these beautiful metal horse sculptures pictured above are unique creations of art, created by Dixie Jewett of Dayton,OR thru her love of horses and her skill in welding, so are we all works of art, created and designed by God.

Each of us are unique. Masterpieces of our Creator who formed us in love, to reflect and shine His workmanship to the world around us.

Ephesians 2:10 Amplified Bible (AMP)

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].
