Shimmering Nervous leaves on the poplar trees look like laughing in the wind

So green thick oval leaves turn inside out in the sunshine after the heavy rain storm

Thunderous loud trembles are felt within the walls of the house

Flashes of lightning jump dance all over the night sky

Everything is lit in a flash!

Heavy rain pours from the mountains, sky to the prairies

Reminds me like the storm flood of Noah’s Ark so many years ago

So many flooded washed away as it is a new day or found shelter

Let the lord move our souls pray for help,

Let our new faith spirit love be restored

Now the storms have turned into blue sunny skies warm temperatures

We have good reasons to pray for help from our heart and soul

God Bless so Many struggling through our own personal storms may the Faith Love Light from This Day forward May Jesus Shine on you”!

Keep the faith

When times seems hard
& dreams seems shred
Don't ask for why's
But keep the faith

Keep your eyes focused on the High
Keep your heart open for the right
Keep your mind settled on the best
& keep your faith as that you have

When hope seems gone
And tears are on
Please look around and find the One
He is always near who shall you fear?

Keep your smile shinning as life is great
Keep that great humor of teas and please
Keep through great prayers praising Him
& keep the faith going till all this last

Now you are stronger
You passed the test
You look forward to all the best
He promised health, love and prosperity
All this is possible whenever we believe
That He is forever faithful
And His word he always keep!

On Loves Wings

I loved you before I created you.

Bright Eyes, Sweet smile and a compassionate heart.

I gave you invisible wings to fly and accomplish what man without me could not do.

I gave you dreams and the vision to see them as if they were a part of history.

I held you in my arms on those nights you thought you were alone.

I dried your tears you let so freely flow.

I danced with you in times if joy, victory and triumph.

I sang with you when life seemed like a endless array of seamless happiness.

I have always been with you.

I planned your life so that each step you took whether in storm or calm would bring you closer to me.

I have always held you in my hands and in my heart and someday in eternity you will realize we were never apart.

So I release you into this world on invisible wings, with the greatest mission you can ever accomplish.

And that is not just to live, love and dream.

but to tell the lost through your life, that they can have life through me, Jesus Christ.

Hello everyone - Happy to join this group! I wrote this poem because sometimes i feel i get so caught up in sermons and books but really, it all boils down to God's Love. I needed more of the basics. <3 hope you enjoy. 

God's Love

When You look down

You don’t see me

You see the blood

Which set me free.

But who am I?

That You sent Your son

To die on the cross

For all

For one.

That one is me

but it’s hard to believe because really…

the ONLY One is You. 

But you loved me enough

To be beaten and roughed

So that through your blood

I could be new.

I feel like I am going back to Sunday school

where they want you to know:

“God created you

And he loves you. “

But lets face it.

I need MORE of the basics

To understand why He wore that crown of sticks

Without the crown of thorns

I’d be lost…

Forlorn…

I can’t help but have tears role down my face

As I begin to not only understand

But embrace

God’s grace.

It’s ridiculous

Just how meticulously you crafted my heart.

It’s like I’m your art. 

And from the very start

When you breathed breath into my lungs

It’s as if wedding bells rung

and the angels sung

and you knew in your mind

that this was the time

that I would no longer love the world but I would call You mine.

A story of love,

I think this takes the cake

No one thing about you is artificial

Not one thing is fake.

The Tree is root and bound to the Grow .  But I never complain The wind beats Me and turn Me all around Break My lems and sometimes blows Me Down to the ground But I never Complain I get struck by lighting and even set on fire but I never complian .  I sometimes get throwed from one side of the road to the other side of the road but I never complain I even get cut down and plaanted against My will but I never Compain  .  So Human Being Tell Me why you got in Made and God gave you Dominion over the Earth and Yet all you do Is ignore God and Complain  And you have been here such a Short Time I be heree Since the Begining of Time and I will Be here Until the End of Time .  Be Bless

The Butterfly   By Betty Pagan

Caterpillar, you're about as ugly as can be-Crawling on your belly to meet your destiny-Where are you heading to I wonder if you know-You need not rush in getting there your moving is too slow-Hold on, am I seeing things what's this I see that flies?-This caperpillar, now a butterfly before my eyes- Amazing how this insect immediately changed place-From crawling on it's belly, to flying into space-This insect once was ugly but now with beauty rare-You know, it's got me thinking God gives a message there-My life was like that insect my ugliness was sin-My life had no direction I was struggling deep within-And then I met my Jesus for my sins, He chose to die-By trusting Him as Savior I became that butterfly-For now I'm free, my sins paid full,believing is the key-Are you that caterpillar? Be a butterfly like me

Calm me, O Lord,as You stilled the storm,

Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm,

 Let al the tumult within me cease,

 Enfold me, Lord, in Your peace.

I just found "Keep the Faith" today.  I too write poetry and share it with friends.  I came back to Christ three years ago while in jail.  There, too, God gave me back the gift of writing.  The attached poem is the first I wrote while in jail.  God continues to reveal Himself working in my life.  In%20the%20Still%20Quiet%20Center%20Black.pdf
