MY SOUL RESTORED

Your whispers

In our quiet place

Are a symphony.

A NEW MORNING


REIGN VERSUS RAIN

AT ALL TIMES GIVE THANKS

Smiling,

The cloud rained down.

The droplets kissed the dry land.

Refreshed and blessed,

The blades of grass looked heavenward      

And the sun began to shine.

FAITH HARVESTED

August 22, 2016

The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

HOPE OVER FEAR

August 18, 2016

mood glow

If I close my eyes,

fearing the angry looking cloud,

I shall miss the brightness of the sun

and the calmness of the glowing moon!

I AM HIS VESSEL

August 17, 2016

 

It is not through the efforts

Of my bread pan

That today’s loaves are ready

And others will be fed.

bread of life


HOPE FOR THE FUTURE

August 16, 2016

Tiny feet

Scampering about,

Carry a wee one

Full of promise!

From such as this

Once was born

A Savior!

OUT OF THIS WORLD

August 8, 2016

Some may boast

Of luxuries I neither have

Nor hunger for.

I, however,

Boast only of the cross

On which my risen Lord

Died for me.

He is all I need

And more!

By Martha L Shaw ©2016

COME

As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross,[a] my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world’s interest in me has also died.  Galatians 6:14
