Tested Faith

In the darkness, hope becomes visible
It’s the glimmer of light around the bend

In doubt, faith becomes tangible 

Turning trials into a dearest friend
James 1:2-3
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance

Poetry

Remember in the Dark

I came into His inner roomAnd heard what He had to say

It spoke deeply to my heart

His love and grace was bright as day
Then as I was walking

Things started turning dim

Obstacles began contrasting

All I’d heard from Him

Luke 12:3
What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.

Poetry

Blinded

You were in front of me

Proving You’re true

Then You hid and allowed me to be tested

My blinders came on

And I forgot all I knew

 

James 1: 23-25

Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

Poetry

Baggage

Leave your bag at the door

Leave your burdens

All you carried here

Think of them no more

 

Tomorrow when you come again

Leave it at the door

And when you leave

You may pick it up once more

 

My hope for you one day

As you’re treading back and forth

Is that you see it’s not required

To carry your bag from door to door
