Be still, my soul, and know that He is God,
Assured that I can trust Him, come what may.
Now follow I the path my Savior trod,
For He has gone before to show the way
That leads us to that bright eternal day
Where we will weep and sorrow nevermore,
For by His side rejoicing we will stay.
While casting crowns, we’ll worship and adore
The Lamb of heaven, clothed in bright array,
Receiving glory from these jars of clay.

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

While I very well may return to my “Songs for Sunday” series at some point, for now I’ve decided to deviate from that a while and share some of my poems instead, poems that are prayers to God or reflections on His attributes, poems based upon the Word of God, which I have come to love. God’s Word is alive (quick) and powerful, and the more time I spend studying it, the more real it becomes to me. I cannot help but write poems about how good God is, for both God and poetry are a part of who I am. I pray they will be a blessing to you and will spur you on in your own walk with God.
