Faith Rises

August 26, 2015

Stormy days . . .

There have been many.

I hunger for the sun,

Yet see only clouds.

I seek rest,

Yet the whistling of the wind

And drumbeats of the rain

Form an angry orchestra against my window

And become all I hear

Until . . .

I find strength to rise

And hear the sweet sound

Of birds singing in the storm!

Loud and clear,

Sweet and triumphant!

If such tiny birds can still find

a song in their hearts to share,

then so can I!

The Lord spoke to my soul!

August 24, 2015

He often lovingly whispers, but this time He called out victoriously to my soul and this is His message as I know it to be!

holding hands

SHINE

Get up and dance!

Do you not hear the glad sound?

Have you not seen the sun?

Is the splendor of this day lost to you?

Place your feet on the floor!

Lift your hands!

As the trumpet sounds

Sail across the floor in harmony with me!

Dance, clap, sing, share!

I am yours!

You are mine!

Is this not cause to celebrate?

SHINE!

Lord, you offer us

a foretaste of heaven

as we stumble through this world.

Let us taste its sweetness today

as we walk

side by side with you. –Martha L Shaw

The Search

August 12, 2015

Looking for a hallelujah,

At first so hard to find.

I found it when I looked inside

My heart and not my mind.

Familiarity,

I have known you.

Uncertainty,

I float through your cloud.

Authenticity,

You are mine.

A pot filled with weeds

oh so bravely faced the sun

and a rose appeared
