Faithful Poems From the Beach Vol 5 - The World and Your Heart

Timothy is a Christian who enjoys creating visual art and writing. He has a B.S. in Psychology.

Here I go again. The fifth installment of one of my favorite things to write poems of faith. I spend a lot of time writing flash fiction which I enjoy because I get to create characters and then move them through different situation. Poems and especially poems of faith are harder to write because they deal with what is inside your heart. so we all know it is often hard to put yourself out there for people to see. I hope you enjoy this fifth installment. I look forward to offering many poems in the New Year.

It’s Times Like These

It’s times like these
I need to speak
The words of God
It’s times like these
I need to think
The thoughts of God
It’s time like these
I need to feel
The love of God
It’s times like these
I need to know
He can lead me through
Times like these

I’ll keep his love locked
In my heart
To help me deal with a world
That seeks to tear me apart
In times like these
I can face the future
And not be afraid
His love will hold fast
As long as you keep faith

It’s times like these
I need to speak
The words of God
It’s times like these
I need to think
The thoughts of God
It’s time like these
I need to feel
The love of God
It’s times like these
I need to know
He can lead me through
Times like these

The Holy Spirit

There’s a voice
Inside your head
That talks all day
It whispers
It yells
What is right
What is wrong

Yet you ignore the voice
Do your own
Do your own
Move yourself over
Out of the way
Let the voice
guide you
So you don’t stray
There’s a voice
Inside your head

The voice of wisdom
of truth
of faith
In this life
In this world

Yet you ignore the voice
Do your own
Do your own
Move yourself over
Out of the way
Let the voice
guide you
So you don’t stray

God Loved

God loved
So God gave
Now if you believe
You receive
Eternal life

It’s that simple
It’s that complex

But the good thing
You don’t have to
Figure it out
Just have faith
Just have faith

God loved
So God gave
And if you believe
You will receive
Eternal life

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Mark 16:15

How Soft Is Your Heart

How soft is your heart
How soft is your heart

If you put your heart under the Son
Would it melt like butter
Or become hard as clay
Do not harden your heart
To the Father's calling
Do not let yourself turn away

How soft is your heart
How soft is your heart

Give your heart to the Father's calling

If you put your heart under the Son
Would it melt like butter
Or become hard as clay
Do not harden your heart
To the Father's calling
Do not let yourself turn away


How soft is your heart
How soft is your heart
Give your heart to the Father's calling
Do not harden your heart
To the Father's calling
Do not let yourself turn away

Topsy, Turvey World

We live in a topsy, turvey world

O’ Lord
Where justice
Is considered unjust

Where right
Is considered wrong

Where good
Is considered bad

Where being a light
Is considered out of place

What can we do
But keep on
What can we say
But the truth

Even if it means
Persecution
Comes our way
You called it to be so

Nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. Acts 17:25

Living Faithfully

Living faithfully
Is all about believing God
When you can’t see God
It‘s about trusting in God
To lead you through this life

One Way

I hate to be so bold
I hate to be so brash
But just as God had Noah
Build an Ark for the
Salvation of animals and man
He only sent one Son to
Complete His salvation plan
For all of the world of man

Jesus is the truth, the life
And no matter what others say
Jesus is the only true way
To get into Heaven

The Light Grows Dim

One by one
The lights disappear
The light of faith grows
Strangely dim

One by one
The light disappears
The horizon grows darker
Every day

Wake up you faithful
Be a light
In the growing darkness
Give others
The good news
Which brings
Much brighter days
Wake up you faithful

Be the voice
In the wilderness
Which speaks words
Of truth and love
Which bring
Peace and good will

Some Final Thoughts

Faith is a funny thing. You either have faith or you don’t. To have faith means putting your trust in God to help you through life. This is the basis for all these poems. So until next time live a life of service to God it will build your faith in God.
