Homeland Security

As Christians, our homeland is heaven. And God’s our homeland security director. We have nothing to fear. A poem.

I really like this poem.

We hear so much about our wonderful homeland security (and of course it’s excellent) but for Christians, our homeland is elsewhere. And God’s our homeland security director. He will never make mistakes or let any harm come to us. We have eternity to chill out and relax.

So why in the world doesn’t everyone want to live in our eternal homeland? That’s one I’ll never be able to figure out.

And God Cried

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.

The Master Painter

A picturesque poem about the Master Painter putting His touch on our world.

This poem by Belinda Van Rensburg creates a picture in my mind. I see the hand of Jesus, as He paints the world into existence. A mountain here, a valley there, a canyon over yonder.

All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:3 (ESV)

Mercy Me

A poem about a choice we all have: give in to temptation or resist and live a Spirit-filled life!

Another inspirational poem by Robbie.

It’s easy to give in to temptation and the lures of the world. Sin calls to us daily. But we always have an option. We can give in to sin, which leads to misery, or we can give in to the Spirit and live a life of fulfillment and hope.

Mercy Me

Don’t forget! If you have a poem you’d like to submit (or a personal testimony), send it in! We’re called to share what Jesus has done for us. Sharing a poem or testimony is a simple way to do just that.

As Jesus Hung

As life ebbed from the two thieves, they took radically different paths. One chose life, the other death. Which will you choose?

Have you given any thought to what it must have been like for Jesus to watch the two thieves, as He hung on the cross? The thieves paint a perfect picture of us; one chose life, and the other chose death.

Just like them, we have a choice. We can choose to follow Jesus, and accept the invitation to His eternal party, or we can reject Him and choose never-ending suffering.

The choice seems easy to me.

My Brother the King

My Brother the King takes the reader on a journey from creation to the present.

This beautifully crafted poem by Tim takes the reader on a journey from creation to the present.

It paints a vivid picture of Jesus Christ, our King, and how He unveiled His perfect plan – in order for us to be His friends and to spend eternity with Him.

Jesus – Another Poem by Mike

Mechanical prayer doesn’t cut it. We serve a living God who loves us and wants to interact with us.

Mike Bullock is a fount of poetry.

He’s recently sent us another poem he entitled “Jesus.” It’s a good reminder not to let our prayer lives get mechanical.

Mike’s poem, Mirror, calls for a sincere self-evaluation. Are we truly living for Him?

Mike’s latest submission reminds us to examine our lives. Are we living for Him? What do we see when we look inside? Purity? Peace? Conflict? Rage? Lust?

Help God do what He wants to do; purify your life.

A moving Christian poem about the life of Jesus Christ.

When I check my email, and see a poem submission from Tim, I get excited.

Tim has a way of putting words on paper that create a vivid mental picture.

Glory paints a picture of the life of Jesus. He came from heaven, from a position of ultimate power, to live a life of suffering and servitude as a man. He never complained; He never sinned; He lived and died for a civilization that treated Him as an outsider.
