My Wayward Son

Poet: Greta Zwaan, ©2018


Don't you feel guilty if your child leaves the light,
If you've been teaching him how to live right.
It's by your example of worship and prayer
In his dark hours you show you still care.

When words that hurt deeply are cast in your face,
The God, whom you love, he'll no longer embrace;
His very existence is questioned , denied;
The truths that you taught him are all cast aside;

The constant allurement which entices his soul,
Have caused him to doubt and let Satan control.
Remember the words God spoke to your heart,
"He may walk away but I never depart."

Sometimes the lessons of life must be learned
And in the process God may be spurned,
But God's Word has never returned to Him void,
No matter what tactics Satan's employed.

This valley of tears that you walk in today
Is not of despair! God hears your pray.
His arm is not shortened , His will will be done;
God sees the depth of your love for your son.
Cling to your faith, hold fast to the Light;
Give God the reigns that your fears may take flight.


Faith is to believe what we do not see . . .  Augustine
"Faith is to believe what we do not see,
and the reward of this faith is
to see what we believe."

Augustine
quotes about faith



Through Faith
Poet: E. Margaret Clarkson


Through faith we understand
The things we cannot know -
The hidden pattern God has planned
And why each thread is so.
We trace life's vast design
And lose His golden strand;
But when our wills with His entwine,
Through faith we understand.

Through faith we understand
What to our sight is dim,
And still Love's sweet, all-knowing hand
Leads those who trust in Him.
Ours not to know the way
But bow to His command;
And when our childlike hearts obey,
Through faith we understand.


He Is Able
Poet: Mrs. Charles E. Cowman


Canst thou take the barren soil
And with all thy pains and toil
Make lilies grow?
Thou canst not. O helpless man,
Have faith in God -- He can.

Canst thou paint the clouds at eve?
And all the sunset colors weave
Into the sky?
Thou canst not. O powerless man
Have faith in God - He can.

Canst thou still thy troubled heart
And make all cares and doubts depart
From out thy soul?
Thou canst not. O faithless man,
Have faith in God - He can


Let God Guide You
by , ©2012


Focus on happiness, not discontent
Thank God for the gifts that are heaven sent.

Rather than crying for what we have not
Give thanks for all that you've got.

Count your blessings and then
Share them with others again and again.

Always be kind, loving and true
With others and those dear to you.

Always show patience, don't turn away
It will make life worthwhile tomorrow and today.

Giving helps others you know
But more importantly it helps you to grow.

God gave us the ability to do, not just try
Give thanks rather than cry.

Live your life fully and true
Don't let life get you blue.

As you start your day
Get down on your knees and pray.

Let God guide you In all that you do.



Let God guide you In all that you do.



God My Light
Poet: Jason Kirk Bartley


God my light, guide me every day.
Never, ever, lead me astray.
When you see that trouble's near.
I do not worry, Lord, you make it clear.

God my light, you are my strength.
If it looks that I may fall short, Lord,
you add an extra length.
Take this ship, through the storms of life.
Make it stronger through all the strife.

God my light, let my candle burn.
So all can see and live and learn.
Lord, never let me hide this flame.
So I can be with you in Jesus's name.



High Above The Hills
Poet: John McLeod, ©1981


High above the hills and dales
A white dove soars, a seagull sails
A skylark sings from altitude
Unseen, but heard below where good
And ill so often fight it out
Instilling fear, unrest and doubt
That darkens vision to confuse
So much to gain, so much to lose!

And here below I cannot fly
To be with them in azure sky
My heart cries out for freedom's way
Above the clouds of violent grey
To where in tune with skylark's song
Dismissed is pain and sufferings wrong
With seagull and with gentle dove
At one with God
In Peace and Love.


Seeds
Poet: Joseph Sottile,
Author of Picture Poetry on Parade


When I doubt
God's existence
when I believe not
in man's humanity
when I doubt
myself or others
I think of seeds
recently flung
from my hand
on bare spots
miles from
any mountaintop.
Days later
I discover
blades of grass
thousands are there
growing and sprouting
in my back yard
shooting skyward
simple blades of grace.


"Faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see."

Hebrews 11:1



St. Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.


"I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God:
first, it is impossible,
then it is difficult,
then it is done."

Hudson Taylor
quotes about miracles



God Will Be There
by Catherine Pulsifer

When you think of God
And all that is divine
Do you count your blessings
And realize all is fine.

Look around and see
The flowers and the trees
In them will appear
All that is dear

You see, our faith
Will lead us to that place
Where peace will be found
And you will find happy sounds

Never stop believing
Never be scared of dying
As God will always be there
No matter what your cares.
