Word Garden ~

There is a place of calm,
for all of us to find . . .
a place to just let go
and find peace of mind.

Mine is in God’s garden,
amongst His Word I do reap
promises of green pastures
the gathering of His sheep.

Strolling along the path,
I bow down to smell a rose
the scent of His undying love
in my heart forever grows.

As I walk the narrow way,
I stop to pick a verse . . .
I’m in awe by His goodness
in His grace I’m immersed.

I stop and sit upon the bench,
under the arbor of my soul
I rest in the knowledge . . .
God is always in control!

A Pink-Lemonade Sky ~

Birch Bay WA outside my window!

Give me the sun on the horizon,
a pink-lemonade sky above . . .
give me a partly cloudy day
and I’ll tell you why Jesus I love.

Give me the shade of the elm,
the Good Book for me to read
give me something cool to drink
and I’ll have close to all I need.

Give me the creek’s soft humming,
chirps coming from a mother’s nest
give me the green grass to lay in
well ~ you can picture the rest.

Give me a Scripture to mediate on,
a soft breeze blowing across my face
give me a day dwelling upon
God’s amazing, wonderful grace.

Give me the aromas of a barbecue,
my mom’s homemade apple pie
give me laughter around an open fire
the warm sounds of a summer’s sigh.

Give me a day in the radiant Son shine,
so I can reflect on God’s perfect love
give me a day to spend basking . . .
in the goodness that comes from above!

Philippians 4:8

” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be
any virtue, and if there be
any praise, think on these things.”

Rules of Engagement ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Beware my Christian friend,
Satan is after you . . .
putting on the Armor of God
is the first thing you must do.

Satan’s always a step ahead,
setting up his land mines
his first rule of attack
is to mess with our minds.

He’s waiting in a fox hole,
ready to ambush you
so be sure you’re prepared
with a Scripture or two.

You must be ready,
you’re always in his range
the rules of combat
everyday he will change.

When things are going good,
it will draw his fire out
being in the Word of God
will keep away any doubt.

Beware my Christian friend,
you’re not under friendly fire
for your very soul . . .
is Satan’s one true desire!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10-11
King James Version

“Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.”

Hidden in My Heart ~

Hidden in My Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann belka

Hidden deep in my heart,
way down in the crevices
I’ve tucked the Word of God
along with all of its messages.

God has given me verses,
at specific times of need
making His way clear to me
through the passages that I read.

The Word is the ammo,
that I use when Satan calls
I throw at him a Scripture
that’s sure to make him fall.

I keep the Word handy,
it’s always on my mind
I reflect on it daily
so true peace I can find.

One day they may take my Bible,
but, they cannot take my heart
for I store God’s Word safely there
so from it, I’ll never be apart!

Psalm 119:11
King James Version

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.”

Word Garden ~

Bible with Flowers by Bruce Jennings free photo #2717

There is a place of calm,
for all of us to find
a place to just let go
and find peace of mind.

Mine is in God’s garden,
amid His Word I do reap
promises of green pastures
the gathering of His sheep.

As I walk along the path,
I bow to smell a rose
the scent of His undying love
in my heart forever grows.

I wander down the way,
and stop to pick a verse
I’m awed by His goodness
in His grace I’m immersed.

I sit upon the bench,
under the arbor of my soul
and rest in the knowledge
God is always in control!
