Thou Little One

Thou little acorn of great potential
fear not, your growth can be exponential.
Although you have a tiny start,
it need not produce faintness of heart.
Fall deep in the earth, and let the sun’s rays
be the thing that hallows all of your days.
Stand fast. You’ll find it is no joke.
One day you’ll be a might oak.

Thou new born believer of great worth,
remember, Christ had a lowly birth.
Don’t despise your spiritual bottle.
You can’t advance overnight to full throttle.
Fall deep in love with the Word of God.
Let it shape the path you trod.
Hold fast to the Master.  One day you will be
a lovely and righteous fruit bearing tree.

Psalm 1:1-6  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 
For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Hidden Message Of Spring

singing robin

early blooming spring trees

Dulcet melody of robin singing
now indicating spring is in the air
blooms in resurrection now are bringing
in gardens many, colorful fanfare.

New buds on trees, uniting form chiffon
Covering over winter’s cold bareness
weave regal raiment, fair to look upon
flowing gently, moved by wind’s soft caress.

Renewed fresh life, it’s wonder does now lace
the earth with youthful, strong vitality
God’s faithfulness does put it all in place
blessing to be enjoyed by you and me.

Perhaps in spring, there lies for men a clue
They too, through God can have a birth brand new.

Joh 3:5  “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” John 3:5

 

A Tree For All Seasons

tree in all seasons

I think that I would like to be

a Christian that is like a tree,

 

whose branches towards the Son are slanted,

in soil of God’s Word, so firmly planted.

 

A tree that lifts her arms to pray

when things are rosy or it’s been a bad day.

 

A tree that can provide some refreshing shade

for those who in burning trials, may feel waylaid.

 

A tree that in each and every season

knows for its existence there’s purpose and reason.

 

Poems are made by fools like me

but only God can make a Christian a tree.

Inspired by one of my favorite poems, Trees by Joyce Kilmer

 

Psalm 1:1-6  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
