These Feet of Clay ~

~CHRISTian poetry bydeborahann ~ walkchrist-IBible VErses

I walk, I stumble,
I fall down . . .
yet, these feet of clay
will always be . . .
heaven bound.

I stub my toe,
I scrap my knee . . .
yet, these feet of clay
know from Satan . . .
they must flee.

I twist my ankle,
I can’t  get up . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still tastes the victory
of a winner’s cup.

I run, I race,
I trip and tumble . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still remain . . .
meek and humble.

I lose, I win,
I worry, I rest . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still must go . . .
through the test.

I walk, I stumble
I fall on my face . . .
yet, these feet of clay
still won’t quit . . .
the faithful race!

Philippians 2:16

“Holding forth the word of life;
that I may rejoice in the day of Christ,
that I have not run in vain,
neither laboured in vain.”

Smoking Flax

Untouchables by Scott Johns free photo #5959

Smoking flax, weak little things,
needing reminders, of what faith brings
bruised and hurting, smoking flax
fragile souls, trust in God is what they lack.

Smoking flax, where is your spark,
have you hidden it, deep within your heart?
Backslidden ones, blown all about,
by the winds of self-proclaiming doubt.

Smoking flax, fearful ones of the flock,
stumble upon, each stumbling block
chomping on temptation’s cunning lure
going off with Satan, on His earthly tour.

Smoking flax, beaten and broken down,
you can’t see His goodness all around
pride and ego, gets in your constant way
to make room for God, in your busy day.

Smoking flax, you have no strength,
to go the distance, to go the length
but try you will, always on your own
the longer it takes, the more you roam.

Smoking flax, weak, noxious things,
return to Christ, see what renewed faith brings
smoking flax, He’ll not quench or put you out
but, He will rid you of your crippling doubt!

Matthew 12:20
King James Version

“A bruised reed shall he not break,
and smoking flax shall he not quench,
till he send forth judgment unto victory.”
