Revelation Tonight

O Lord,

it’s been said you work in mysterious ways.

I’ve always known, but never understood,

not until tonight,

the speaking of feelings

honest from my heart

revealed the secret of Your power,

and how letting me discover-

under Your watchful eye,

the wonders of Your wisdom.

Tonight, I feel strength,

I have discovered the paradise

that awaits for us all;

I have learned of the roles

and the parts that we play,

learned of the secrets

and the glory of the day.

From this day on forth,

my path is clearly defined –

to Spread the Word.

Poetry: Shield of Faith

Shield of Faith

How easily our souls are brought from us.

How impulsively we are coaxed to do evil.

We postpone pain and pressures for ease

that entices our selfish whims.

Carrying a shield of faith,

the bombardments from evil are warded off.

The power of Faith,

the power of Love’s shield

provides for those who believe,

but the truth of that shield

can only be heard by those

whose heart is open enough to accept it.

Guardian Eyes

Not quite out of school

and I’ve called the road my own,

prepared to make a stand

in the land of the unknown.

I don’t know what’s in my future,

I don’t really even care,

because whatever is to happen,

I know that God is there.

While I might find some hardships,

I know it’s for a reason,

to discipline my soul,

one that’s worth the pleasing.

In the times I face ahead,

I know I won’t be scared,

even in times of hardship

I know that God is there.

Persistent Calling

A boy amidst a change- a growth to manhood

requiring a struggle to strengthen

the character of his soul.

Then the struggle came,

but more vividly than expected,

and it awakened a searching heart.

Different perspectives have been taken

and different outlooks cast,

but through this fog of loneliness

and confusion that I’ve staggered in,

I’ve noticed it slowly rising,

showing me glimpses of blinding rays of light.

The sounds and sights of beauty

still persist and long for my soul.

Give me strength

Claimers of perfection

we don’t pretend to be,

we know that we are sinners,

and we accept it literally.

But, I feel kind of guilty

when I know I’ve done wrong,

the Devil has found a weakness,

in me that doesn’t belong.

By seeing my sins before me,

the next time I can only hope

that through my lived experiences

I’ll be strong enough to cope.

Oh- Lord, stay with me, please

and give me all your Love,

for me to ward off evil

with words like peace and love.

Inner Strength

The questions still rage in my heart

concerning the whole purpose of our being.

Surely, a place must be had

to strengthen the weary heart

as I struggle through this maze

called life.

Without that inner contentment,

do money,

or looks,

or possessions

mean anything at all?

Do they?

Let the swimmer swim

I’m taking this for granted,

this society of ours,

convenience at our fingers,

laziness at large.

I’ve got more time,

more time to lay around,

useless energy spent,

a swimmer as he drowns.

God gave us no wings,

we can not fly,

we try to live,

and ask not to die.

Take life into your hands,

but be guided by Him,

gather up your energy,

and let the swimmer swim.

Remember streams are rivers,

when filled up by the rain,

and remember all the goodness,

even in times of pain.
