Sometimes all I can do is grip the cross. It is sufficient. Words are unnecessary. – Martha L Shaw​


Falling Not Failing

October 28, 2015

Pushing forward getting nowhere,

I fall.

A new vantage point!

I look up and you are there!

This changed everything!

You Are ALWAYS With Me

Direction – A Poem From My Soul

Your love fills my soul

And your peace

Is like nothing I could imagine.


This morning I woke with a start,

I stopped to think

And stumbled off the path.

My fear frozen heart beat too fast

And my mind drew me

In another direction

But not a good one.

I breathed deeply,

I called out to you,

And you showed me the map

Leading me back to you.

The peace in my soul

Softly comforted me.

I smiled

Ready for a new day

Filled with wonder,

Filled with you.

I fell to my knees

In the darkened space

With no sound but my own breath

But still

My soul heard your voice

And by the light of a single candle

I found The Way

I Am A Marked Woman!

October 21, 2015

When We Call

Marked As Yours

Your arms stretched out,

“it is finished” is what you said,

But for me it had only just begun.

All those years before my birth,

Your hand print of love

Was already on my soul

And eternal life with you was mine

Before my first breath!

Yours is a love without beginning

And without end!

Crisis! Crisis! Crisis!

So, I stand here tired and stressed and facing the crisis of today and wondering WHAT WILL BE THE CRISIS OF TOMORROW . . . 

Problem with this line of thinking?  

The Lord already had the solution for today’s crisis YESTERDAY and while I’m running ahead fussing about tomorrow, HE’S HOLDING OUT HIS HANDS TO ME WITH THE SOLUTION I NEED RIGHT NOW.  

All I have to do is accept His Gift!

Not Just Another Dog Tale

October 20, 2015

The dog was shaking and barking when I entered the room then jumped into my waiting arms, suddenly quiet, snuggled close, grew still and rested. Nothing really changed in his circumstances, just his awareness of my presence and my love . . . which changed everything. The Lord is with us . . . His waiting arms reaching . . . Martha L Shaw
