Walk in Faith

 

Walk in the firmness of faith

And not in nagging doubt;

Walk in unwavering belief

That Jesus is Lord and King.

Walk in steadfast hope

Even while climbing a slippery slope

Of troubles and tribulations

Through this earthly life’s

Wilderness and desert lands.

Walk in trust and confidence

Knowing that all the Lord’s

Plans will ultimately prevail

And that his unfathomable

 Ocean of love will never fail.

His never-ending love which can

Reach the furthest star and

Touch the bottom of the deepest sea.

And fill all the voids of earth and space;

The boundaries of his love,

No one can perceive.

Walk in sheer delight

Of God’s revealing light;

A beacon leading us the way

To the road he has prepared today.

Yes, walk in faith never doubting

That God of heaven is holy and supreme.

And that his son, Jesus is indeed

 Lord, Savior and king

Who will reign for all

Eternity;

Walk in faith.

Becky’s Haiku: Night and Sneak

Night has fallen but

in the twilight, moon sneaks out

shining its’ pale light.

EMBRACING Jesus Everyday

014

Enter his glorious presence by prayer;

Meditate on his voice in his Holy Word.

Be open-minded with a teachable heart;

Remember the infinite truths he imparts.

Acknowledge and visit him through the day;

Center your thoughts on his nearness along your pathway.

Immerse in his saving grace and unending love

Never forgetting he watches over you from above.

Gently, gently he leads you like young sheep

From dawn of morn and while you quietly sleep.

“Your word is lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”

Psalms 119:105 (Holy Bible NIV)

Becky’s Haiku: Light of Gold

As morning’s touched by

a light of gold, a thankful

Tune sings in my soul.

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

Becky’s Sonnet: Waiting for the Sun

004

I awoke early one dark morn

And waited for the sun to dawn.

I lay in bed a bit forlorn

Yet anxious to see the gloriously rising sun.

Darkness wrapped around me like a knitted shroud

As I rested as quietly as could be.

But lo! Only gray billowing clouds

Through the slatted window I could see.

Yet still a dim light did appear

Ushering the darkness away;

No more murky shadows to fear

As deep night transformed to day.

Therefore, with a lifted heart graced by hope

I began a new day’s journey upon life’s emerging slope.

 

Becky’s Pantoum: Upon the Fringe of Deep Black Night

 img_20160519_204549678_hdr

Upon the fringe of deep black night

The sky remained a vast ocean of blue;

The perfect sphered moon shone its’ light

Casting a faint and ghostly hue.

The sky remained a vast ocean of blue

While a lone ship sailed the silent sea

Casting a faint and ghostly hue

On the lapping waves so deep.

While a lone ship sailed the silent sea

Searching for its faraway home;

On the lapping waves so deep

Voyaging onward all alone.

Searching for its faraway home

Beneath the canopy of darkness stretching on;

Voyaging onward all alone

Yet somehow hoping to perceive the distant sun.

Beneath the canopy of darkness stretching on

The perfect sphered moon shone its’ light;

Yet somehow hoping to perceive the distant sun

Upon the fringe of deep black night.
