Becky’s Haiku: Stream of Light

IMG_20160611_095008415_HDR

Light streamed the top edge

Of my door; I wondered what

This day has in store?

I learned the answer

Clear and fair; God provided

For my earnest prayer.

A day of blessing

It came to be because he

Filled my heartfelt plea.

A plaguing problem

 Needed a solution; solved

By his provision.

Oh how it had nagged

At me until I felt in

Deep despairing need.

I so anguished and

Agonized for days not quite

Trusting God has a way.

Suddenly a plan

Came to be as God seemed to

Say, “believe in me.”

And just as he has

Provided before, he soon

sent help to my door.

Why do I not trust

And believe that Jesus in

His love cares for me?

He who for my sins

Died so I may live in him

 In faith and new life?

Why did I question

For days if God did hear when

I so wept and prayed?

I had doubted him

With a frown though he told me

 to not be cast down.

His love is sure and

Everlasting; he always

There, ne’er forsaking.

 Lo, he listens to

Me and answers in his own

Time so patiently.

Sweet peace now nurtured

My soul; must remember: God

Is ever faithful.

Whether at noon, morn,

Or at night, he’s my hope; a

Constant stream of light.

 

I have attempted another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “top” and “light”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem.  If you like challenges and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept his latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

I am also participating in a photo challenge with the word “door”.  This certainly adds a bit more challenge to the haiku! To find out more about word photo challenges visit this site: https://thearanartisan.com/photo-challenge-words-2016/
