  1. What's new in this club
  2. Beautiful poem! And full of truth! Thanks for posting
  3. Child of God, you about your fathers business? living to love, living to please the one you love? a light in a dark world, while the days are evil. The sorrow, the pain, sin and death. While the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not overcome it With hearts fixed on Him who calls us my beloved. Seeing the beauty in life, having the mind of Christ. A fragrance of life to those who live, in him we live. Never failing, a love so great, the love of God In whom we embrace. The world and it’s vanity, delivered from its corruption. The sin and the shame the blood that’s been shed. The devil and his army with the world against us. Carry on child of God for God is with us. What are we but free, praise the Lord for he set us free!

    This tiny room shared with my sister Is my home for now, till when, who knows? Many times I wish our home was better I’ve learned to befriend the noise and the clutter. I have less now yet I still have so much Good clothes, good shoes, good books Too many still for me to remember Too many still to keep clean and in order. I don’t miss what I sold nor gave away It still surprises me! That I held on to them for so long Now I understand me! In our small home, we have enough To eat and clothe ourselves well We never lack drink or food Only time for eggs or meat to boil. We step out into the breeze And greens abound Beneath our feet And high above. Foliage in arches and canopies Shaking in the wind like dancers Shimmering with sunlit kisses And I forget the fumes and scents That interrupt our sleep and naps.
  5. Thanks for this poem. HIS love is indeed perfect!!
  6. What a noiseless mess they make These leaves upon my yard Each year, flat stars sing around my rake Though I counter with strokes of a bard
  7. My Lord loves me ever true Beyond what I can say, think, or do Encompassed in time I'm bound to wane Yet my Redeemer remains the same On His mercy, I solely rely Enduring forever by and by Left to myself I'd be truly lost He paid my way - an innumerable cost His light shines beyond the darkest shadow His righteous ways, I strive to follow Suffer affliction, suffer shame Gladly I will to glorify His name
  8. Thank you HK1. I like the title "True companion" thanks so much ❤
  9. Beautiful poem! I love how you always put such deep emotion in your writing! Maybe the title could be "Redemption" or "True Companion."
  10. I know one day I'll be set free From all this pain that feels as if it's killing me He promised me Redemption and through the process he's helped me to see True healing comes from within that can begin to set me free From the sorrows and anguish of the past This process has been anything but fast Slow and revealing from the start Showing such sadness so close to my heart He's been by my side every step of the way Standing near regardless of what I do or say A True Companion to take along the way For I know his love for me will never sway
  11. I feel like my heart is about to burst out tears That were bound up for all these years Emotions put on pause Never able to understand the cause How can such evil exist And continue to persist Against the young, old and helpless Their prey over their victims is relentless A virus that spreads through families and loved ones Victimizing daughters and sons Such a crime against humanity Causing anguish and calamity Getting it out and in the open And having it spoken Takes it out of the dark of night And into his glory and might Offering victory in surrendering an endless fight
  12. Thank you HK1, your comments are always so encouraging and inspiring.
  13. Beautiful work! This reminds me of "It is Well with My Soul," especially the second verse. When peace like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say It is well, it is well, with my soul It is well With my soul It is well, it is well with my soul Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come, Let this blest assurance control, That Christ has regarded my helpless estate, And hath shed His own blood for my soul It is well (it is well) With my soul (with my soul) It is well, it is well with my soul My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought My sin, not in part but the whole, Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more, Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul
  14. This pain is rugged and deep Casting Revenge while I sleep Nightmares and Visions keep me awake Knowing of such Danger I feel as if my life's at stake Fighting so hard to escape Feeling Bound by the decisions others did make I can't give up I can't give in I know the power of Freedom comes from within His Spirit can combat and overcome any sin I'm Holding Onto You Lord when the world comes crashing in Sometimes I want to give up But then I know I'm just letting the devil win
  15. America, Like the great American Eagle When she spreads her wings to fly Soaring through the skies above A phenomenon in flight The wind beneath her wings is freedom Justice is Her might Her wings, we call democracy Her strength is human rights The day enemies attacked her The wind lifted her high Justice gave her courage To stand her ground and fight Her feathers, red white and blue Her eyes intense and strong Her Nests on Purple Mountains Majesty Star-Spangled Banner her battle song She flies across the evening sky Above a lighted torch Where freedom stands transfixed in time Just beyond her shores
  16. Thank you so much HK1. Thank you for sharing this. This psalm is so powerful. It is such an honor to be told that my writing sounds anything similiar to the beautiful psalms of David. Thank you so much for your support in my writing❤

    Beautiful poem! It reminds me of a Psalm I've been working on memorizing. Psalm 130 King James Version (KJV) 1 Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord. 2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. 3 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. 6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. 7 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. 8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
  18. Thank you so much lynnmosher. ❤🙏❤
  19. Oh, so moving! So many of us can identify with these feelings, Nikki. Just a suggestion: I would change mercys to mercies. No one can write something like this without experiencing it. Saying a prayer for you. 🧡
  20. There are days, it feels as if hell has a grip on my soul. I cry out for mercy and He hears my cries. I ask, why must the suffering have no end. I am but a tortured soul begging for peace. Will there be no end? Will it never cease? Pain riddles my body attempting to shake my soul. I will not bend. I will not falter. I know my Father's power and unending mercies I know the dark clouds lift and tears dry. I've seen the sun shine in darkness and hope that lies within disaster.
  21. I was once a little girl So very long ago Skating on the lakes thin ice Dancing in the snow Provoked to play on Crystal Ponds By friends I held so dear Oh the memories I now cherish As the end of life grows near Oh that I was young again What angels I'd create Laying in whitened mounds of snow Back in my childhood days
  22. The dark, unclear yet stark. No veneer, No gloss, no hype, Just emptiness. So plain, our plights undress Our might. We find no cloth till Your Righteousness Layers Yourself Over our souls In Light, where shadows are optional sight. What shall we stare at? Light, Light!
  23. Very Psalm-like. A confession of total dependence on God and, by faith, a declaration of hope in His goodness.
  24.
