Poems

‘The secret place of the most High’

Wake to your sense of original innocence, Honor the joy there, the beauty, magnificence, Banishing thoughts of anxiety, ugliness, “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. ” * Closing the door as you enter the “secret place,” Hidden from secular noise in His quiet grace, Knowing His love for all, praying with gratitude, Meekly acknowledging God’s great infinitude, Safe in the kingdom of God, divine consciousness, Witness the Christ-healing power, His righteousness.

Prayer

Former trials are passed away, those Revelation vials of plague. Truth’s power to destroy all ills is lively as in Jesus’ time, today.

A song of gratitude

Dear Lord, I thank Thee that I did not get An answer to my prayer of long ago. In looking back, I see I asked amiss In praying for the things I longed for so.

A Reader’s silent prayer

Facebook or the Good Book?

I wonder what our world would be like If the Bible became our Facebook, And we spent our hours researching its text, Finding joy and peace with each look. If we needed assurance that all was all right With our family and friends far or near, The Book has a message so clear and direct, “Be not afraid, God is here.

Free

Upheld by Love I soar so free What is my guide God’s thought of me. … God’s thought is me.
