What Christmas Means to Me

A Christian poem about the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ.

Christmas. It’s almost here. We can focus on spending all our hard earned money in order to go deeply into debt so we can enjoy fighting an uphill battle to re-balance our finances for 2009, or we can focus on the real meaning of the season – Jesus Christ.

I choose the latter.

Tim’s written a poem describing a man with just this kind of focus – a man dedicated to knowing and finding His savior.

It’s called What Christmas Means to Me.

Beauty – A Poem by Mark

Our God radiates beauty. This poem reminds us of the God we serve.

Work sucks. School sucks. I don’t feel well. My throat hurts. I’m tired. It’s raining. Everything seems ugly and irritating.

Why? When my mind focuses on the things of this world rather than the beauty of God, everything seems drab and uninteresting.

Mark’s poem reminds us of God’s beauty. His creation, His mercy, His guidance . . . without God, life lacks meaning.

Check out this reminder of the amazing God we serve.

Two New Christian Poems

Two poems about Jesus Christ and the hope He has supplied to the world.

Here at truthsaves we love poems that glorify Jesus Christ. Recently we’ve received two excellent submissions. One is written by Joe Breunig, author of Reaching Toward His Unbounded Glory (http://www.squidoo.com/book-isbn-1419650513), and it’s about the truth revealed in Biblical archaeology.

Read Prism to Our Past here.

The other is a powerful poem by Scot Crone revealing the hope Jesus Christ graciously supplies to all those who trust in Him. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done or where we are in life – God waits for us. His mercies are new every morning.

Lord, Forgive Me – New Poem on truthsaves

Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.
Isaiah 1:18 (ESV)

Here’s a new Christian poem from mamarocks.com. It’s called Lord, Forgive Me. When we plead with God for forgiveness, He listens and forgives.

Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.
Isaiah 1:18 (ESV)

Some Easter Poems

A collection of Easter poems reminding us of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection.

As Christians, Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection remain fixed in our minds. But as Good Friday and Easter approach, it’s good to remember the price Jesus paid for us. Mark has written some thought-provoking poems reminding us of Jesus’ sacrifice.

The Servants Way
Prelude to the Cross
A Lamb Among Wolves

Thanks you Jesus! And thank you, Mark, for the reminders.

This amazing Christian poem moved my heart.

Once again we have received a new poem . . . and once again Tim submitted it! As the site administrator, I’ve decided to publish it.

Esther Outline and New Poem on truthsaves

The content’s just rolling in now!

I’ve just posted another outline on truthsaves. This one gives a brief overview and outline of the Old Testament book of Esther.

I’ve also posted another poem from Tim. Again, his poetic abilities have floored me! The poem reminds me how easy it is to let sin creep into our lives and take up residence there. We have to make a conscious decision to eject it. Read this little vignette . . . the story of three words.

Read Tim’s poem, “I Have Sinned,” here.

New Article and Poem on truthsaves . . .

I’ve just had a reader ask, “How do you know when God is speaking to you?” I think this is a question we’ve all asked at some point in our lives. Does God still speak to us? And how can we know? Tim has written a though-provoking article on the topic.

Read it here.

Tim also sent me a poem that goes along with his article. The poem is entitled, “The God Who Speaks.” I didn’t know Tim was such a good poet, at least not in the past, but after he wrote a previous one entitled “When Death Marches Through the Land,” I realized he had been holding out on me.

Two New Christian Poems on truthsaves!

We’ve just added two new poems to our Christian Poetry section on truthsaves. Check ’em out. Marlene wrote both poems. I discovered Marlene on Squidoo; reading her poetry has really inspired me! “Be Still” has reminded me to keep my focus on God as I’m working each day. It’s easy to think about negative things (like how much we despise our co-workers!) but God calls us to keep our eyes constantly on Him as we travel through life.

May God bless you as you read Marlene’s poems.

Your Help Comes From the Lord
