Expect Opposition

The following is an excerpt from His Delight: 31 days of Praise and Worship

The trees to grow,
The birds to sing,
The stars to twinkle, to shine, to constellate;
I am:
The uncreated Creator,
The immovable Mover,
The unshakeable Shaker,
The unchangeable Changer,
I […]

Opening Meditation

This poem is part of the Shoetry collection.

Out of ashes delivers beauty,
Out of the storm brings peace and tranquility,
Out of despair gives life changing joy,
Out of abject poverty shows the riches of His grace,
Out of weakness brings prevailing strength,
Out of the mire of hopelessness produces a hope and […]
