Thursday Story

Butterfly with Deb Jarzabek

 

I was tiny,
A mere dot in a huge world.
I could have been blown away
or devoured by something larger than myself.
Yet, I increased in size and strength.

My legs took me on a
seemingly endless journey
Repeatedly, as I grew,
I removed my decorative coat
for a new one.

I had all I needed
and my life was carefree.
Eventually, my body began to change.
To protectively hide,
I covered myself with my silk blanket
What is happening to me?

Oh the agony.
No one sees as I tightly hide.
New shapes begin to form.
I feel all alone,
and the only sound I hear is my own.

Lord what is happening?
I am deformed! Rescue me please!
I do not understand!
Then, I hear a soft voice,
it gets clearer and clearer.
I've heard it before.

"Come out", it said
I struggle with all my might.
In great determination
I crack open my hardened silk blanket.
I can see the light.

I felt blinded and alone for so long!
Little by little, and now I am finally OUT!
Oh to breathe the fresh air,
to see the sun shinning again!

Then I remember,
I remember who I was.
I remember how deformed I became and I wonder,
what has become of me now.

He tells me,
"I allowed you the time of brokenness.
I allowed you the time of pain.
I was with you through it all.

Because of Me you are not the same.
I gave you wings for freedom
to go beyond where you could imagine.
I decorated your wings.

As others see your beauty
they will be reminded of Me."

Haven't You Heard?

 

by Milly Stegall George



Haven't you heard?
He lives in me.
Jesus my Lord has set me free.
He set me apart when He entered my heart.
And oh the joy He's given me!
What joy He's given me!

Haven't you heard?
He's Lord of Lords.
He's the one Whom I've adored.
He loves me so much He died for me.
Oh what love to me from Thee
what love to me from Thee!

Haven't you heard?
That He's the Way
the Truth; the Life!
Hear what I say!
He changed me from the inside out!
My Lord has made me dance and shout!

Prayer For A Broken Country

by Sue Goodall

~

Dear Lord,

Let others see in me:

An ounce of love;

A millilitre of kindness;

A drop of hope;

The tiniest flame of

Something different.

~

Dear Lord,

Help me to be:

A reservoir of love;

A resource of kindness;

A ray of hope;

The tiniest reveal of

Something enviable.

~

Dear Lord,

Let others meeting me:

Be open to see;

Open to hear;

And open to ask

All that they need to know

To meet you themselves.

Partakers

Amen

About Sue Goodall

I was born in 1963 in Enfield and love writing, painting and singing. (Singing Grade V and clarinet grade VIII). Not to mention photography. I am a mum of one teen daughter and have two rescue cats. The three of them are very much loved and central to my life, as is my faith...

I became a Christian when I was eighteen. It's been a rollercoaster ride but without Him, well....

I LOVE the written word and find poetry can say - in my own, private opinion - so much more in such a few words. It can paint a metaphorical picture, get the reader considering and questioning and touch people's emotions.

I had prayed and asked God that is He would have me pursue writing and wanted to use the poems to speak to other people, He would show my CLEARLY and open doors. The next day, Dave Roberts asked me to record two poems.... WOW indeed! He is a great God!

“‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Matthew 11:28-29 (New International Version)

Come

by Sue Goodall

~

''Come,'' He said.

''I love you,'' He said.

~

As I felt myself steadily led

To the place at His feet where -

In my head;

In my heart;

In my soul;

I knew so well.

This was the place I should always have been.

~

''Come,'' He said.

''I love you,'' He said.

''I come,'' I said

''I love you,'' I said.

Armour of the Family

by Milly

I will put on my armour every day

So the enemies of Christ will flee away!

The armour of God is what I need,

The blood of Jesus is my plead!

To overcome the evil one

And bask in glory with God the Son.

Poem - Tomorrow

Watch Now:

Tomorrow by Milly

Right mouse click to save/download this Psalm as a MP4 video file

Should I have tomorrow

Should I have another day

Time that I will borrow

Time that I will pray

Hopefully, I'll touch you, Jesus

In some special way

And I will get a touch from you

To take my fears away

Jesus, you're the answer

You are my guiding light

You're the hope of my tomorrow

And so my future's bright

The time that I've been given

Is only yours to give

So I don't want to die, my Lord

For you I want to live

And so I'm reaching for you

With all my strength and might

And wait for you to reach me too

And hold me oh, so tight!
