Timothy is a writer and artist who enjoys writing poetry, stories and articles. Timothy earned his BS in psychology from Albright College

Faith and Life

Everyone has some kind of faith. Even those who claim to have have no faith, have faith. Their faith is built on their trust that their is no God to answer to in the end. The poems in this grouping are for those whose faith is centered on the existence of God. Each poem is built around certain aspects of faith. I hope you enjoy the poems and remember even if you don’t believe in God, He still believes in you.

“In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.” - Psalm 18:6

Man likes to run

Away

From the trials

In life, which come

In our eyes

We hide the fear

Of our lost control

Stopped in out tracks

We beg for freedom

For a life

With a few smiles

Like before

To that point we move on

Trying to replace

Emptiness with a style

When over the course of years

All we needed to do

Was call out

With a voice as a child


Rescue me

Rescue me

Come into my life

Tame the wild


Stop, listen to the voice

Which calms the fears

Stills the gale in your mind


Stop right where you are

Put an end to the wild ride

Lift up your heart to the One

Who'll come stand by your side

“Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.” - Proverbs 31:8-9

Get up, get up

Get up, get up

Go out, go out

Go out, go out


Doot do do,do, do, doot doot


How can the people know

if our lips are sealed

How can they find their way

If they’re not told


We were called

Not to be silent

Not to stay in our seats

We were called

To get up, go out

Take the news both

Far near

Get up, get up

Let them hear


How can the people know

if our lips are sealed

How can they find their way

If they’re not told

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

Oh what a puzzle
Is what we call life
Each day we add a piece
Hopin' to place it right
Sometimes it works out
Other times it don't
So we choose another piece
And try to move on
Sometimes we get impatient
Don't want to wait
So we try to force
The piece into place
Each time it doesn't fit
We get annoyed
Deep in our heart we think
We've made the right choice

God sees the puzzle
That we call life
He sees it complete
Each piece placed right
We don't have to struggle
Placing the pieces on our own
We can ask God to help us
See where each piece goes
He has the patience
To help us wait
So we won't try to put
A piece in the wrong place
Cause with God's guidance
We won't get annoyed
Deep in heart we must thank
God for making the right choices

“In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand, for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good.” - Ecclesiastes 11:6

God tells us just sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

God tells us to sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

He'll do the rest


Cause God is the gardener

He tends His crops so well

He gives them their water

He shines down the Son

Then lovingly watches over them

Til the harvest is done


God tells us just sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

God tells us to sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

He'll do the rest


Cause God is the gardener

He tends His crops so well

He gives them their water

He shines down the Son

Then lovingly watches over them

Til the harvest is done


All we are called to do for Him

Is to plant in each heart a seed

God will take care of the rest

He knows what each person’s needs


Cause God is the gardener

He tends His crops so well

He gives them their water

He shines down the Son

Then lovingly watches over them

Til the harvest is done


God tells us just sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

God tells us to sow the seeds

Sow the seeds, sow the seeds

He'll do the rest

Some Final Thoughts

There you have four poems dealing with faith, the Bible and and how they tie into your daily life. I hope you enjoyed them and they lifted up your spirit just a little. Until next time remember to remain faithful and to let your line shine. The Bible says in Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Which can also mean the words you speak to others can be the only light they will see in their stressful day.

Thank you for your kind words.

These poems are good.

I so enjoyed the one where life is a puzzle where we keep trying to put the pieces together.

If only we would stop to ask God...he definitely does help us put those pieces together.
