Mark, our very own prolific ex-Portlandite, has submitted yet another poem. And this one is timed perfectly with the appearing of Christmas lights and the sounds of Christmas songs on the radio. Thanks Mark! We miss you. Be sure to check out Mark’s website.
This poem by Cindy presents a clear illustration of what it means to love and be loved by the Jesus of the Bible.
Poetry speaks to some people . . . not to others. I’ll have to admit it doesn’t move me all that much (most of the time). Regardless of that, the poetry section on this site is growing faster than any other section. It’s also the most visited page on the site. So, apparently, poetry does speak to a lot of people. I have many more poems to post; I’m still way behind. In fact, the one I’ll tell you about in a minute was submitted in April. But it’s the last submission in April, and now I’m into May! I’m hoping to catch up soon. If you’ve submitted anything it’ll show up eventually.
Anyway, the poem I’m introducing today was submitted by Cindy. I love her poetry. She always presents a clear message of what it means to love and be loved by the Jesus of the Bible.
Jesus cares for us. He gives us life and hope and he directs our paths. Two Christian poems.
A Christian poem. Life’s full of storms. We all know it; we face trouble daily. But the testing of our faith develops perseverance.
Miracle of miracles. I’m actually doing something with this website. I am finally posting something. It’s a new poem by Belinda. And it’s pretty cool (thanks for sending it in). It describes life’s storms. I’m going through storms right now at work. All of us experience troubles. We need to stay straight on the path. We need to keep our eyes on the prize. The testing of our faith develops perseverance. Thank God He knows what’s best for us.
This poem reminds us that God cares for our every need. He loves us and will see us through the painful trials of life.
I haven’t updated this blog for a while due to many things . . . first, my computer was out of commission for almost three weeks. Second, I was in Alaska fishing (and visiting with family) for about two weeks. So, there are my excuses. Now, on to the real reason for this post.
Melinda Lancaster writes some amazing poetry. She gave me permission to post poems from her site, so I have finally posted one. More will follow, you can be sure. This one is called “And God Cried.”
It’s a moving poem about how God cares deeply and personally for us. It reminds us that God doesn’t simply want to rule over us; He wants to be intimately involved with our lives. He wants to provide for all our needs. We can trust Him to be there when we’re in pain, alone, frightened . . . He loves us and this poem reminds us of that.
An entertaining Christian poem reminding us to be patient.
Poems bore me sometimes (sorry) but this one’s good. I know, I’m weird; I have a section on my site devoted to poems and my attitude toward them sucks. But occasionally I come across a gem I really like so it makes reading them all worthwhile (I’m being a little goofy here; there are many truly amazing original poems on our poetry page).
Anyway, I’m off topic. You need to check out this poem – Soft Scoop.
It’s written by a guy (Mike Bullock) who calls himself “versical” and I can see why. He’s skilled at the art of wordsmithing.
Publish your original Christian poetry on our site. Send in your Christian poems and we’ll post them.
Poems never really were my thing. They bored me. But the older I get, the more I find myself liking poems, especially poems that speak to one’s walk with the Jesus of the Bible.
So, I created a page just for Christian poetry. If you have a poem that’s about Jesus, or related to your walk with Jesus, you can send it to me and I’ll post it! Right now we have about 40 poems but I want hundreds, if not thousands of poems that glorify Jesus Christ!
So, send ’em in. We love to read original poetry, and we love to publish it.
All for His glory!
A poem of faith in Jesus.
Hetty – thank you!
I appreciate your poems, your testimony, and your words of encouragement more than you’ll know.
For those of you who don’t know, Hetty has suffered with seizures much of her life. But her faith is strong; she shines brightly in this dark sea of cyberspace.

A Christian poem about the importance of unity within the body of Christ.
Tim’s submitted a few poems lately – each with its own unique flavor. This one doesn’t disappoint.
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.

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.
