Do you know anyone who lives in captivity to fear? I do. Do you know someone who needs to hear the good news of Jesus Christ? I do. Do you know anyone who needs to be reminded that God is with us, all the time? I do!
Check out Mark’s latest poem — it’s a great reminder that God came to us, died for us, rose again and is with us forever — and we need to share the good news!
To Be Emmanuel
I gotta say, I really appreciate what God has given me. Pastor Paul gave me a task a few days ago — to write down what God has done in my life. Once I started working on the list, I realized I could write forever so I tried to synthesize the many blessings into larger, more overarching ones. One of those overarching blessings in my life is my friends.
The friends God has given me have saved my life, coached me, directed me, prayed for me, encouraged me, supported me financially, taught me . . . I could go on but you get the idea. One such friend is Mark. You know, the guy who wrote so many poems for this site. I met him this morning for coffee and he really encouraged me. He reminded me that Christ is our end goal. He reminded me to keep my eyes on Him. Forget the world. Forget worrying. Forget theological debates. Focus on the prize — Jesus Christ.
For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
1 Corinthians 2:2 NKJV
Anyway, Mark also sent me this poem recently . . . read it and be blessed!
By A Child Reconciled
Mark has decided, once again, to bless our site with some words of truth. Such simple words, but so revealing.
Thank you, Mark.

The ABCs of Grace
Do you know what’s going to happen to you in the next minute?
None of us do. That’s precisely why we must take this moment, right now, to call on Jesus Christ, the only One who can remove our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
One Minute Altar Call
Thank you Mark for this tribute to Tim, the greatest man I have ever known.
For those of you who don’t know, Tim is the author of the majority of the articles on this site (including a large variety of poems). He passed away last December and for those of us who knew him, he is truly missed.
A Prince Among Men
In this beautiful, broken, sin-stained world
Good and evil both exist
And moment by moment we must all choose
Which we’ll follow and which we’ll resist . . .

Jim Price sent us this very poignant and timely poem . . . so that we can remember that Jesus is no longer dead. He is alive. He is active. And what He did so long ago gives us heaven. We look forward to eternal life with Him forever. We need have no fear of death. Death has no power.
HE IS RISEN!
The Story – An Easter Poem
Mark sent this poem in the other day and because I’m lazy, I didn’t get it up on the website until just now. So here it is. May you enjoy it and may it help you remember Jesus’ great sacrifice.
He gave His life for us. It’s our reasonable service to give our lives completely — for Him.
Royal Blood Shed – A Good Friday Poem
Thank you Lanette for your first poem submitted to our site! It’s something I think about a lot. Do my children know the all-encompassing love of the Father? Do they realize that His love is deeper than mine? Do they understand that His love is eternal? My job, as their earthly father, is to help them develop their relationship with their heavenly Father.
Tell Them of His Love
Mike and Mark keep sending in thought-provoking and encouraging poetry. I have loads to publish — I’m just slow to do so. Pray for focus for me so I can get more poems posted, more testimonies posted, and more of Tim’s work posted. Thanks again for your poetry Mike. It’s much appreciated.
