Faithful Poems From the Beach Vol 4

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

Here I go again. It’s been a while since I published an edition of faithful poems. The poems I’ve written here have all been inspired by something I’ve heard. Maybe it was a snippet in a sermon or something might have said to me which sparked some lines of words.

Wherever they came from I hope you enjoy reading them and they give you a little inspiration to brighten your day. Until the next time stay strong and faithful.

Leading Others Along

You call me to lead others of the faith

In a better knowledge of your saving grace

I have known for so many, many years


But Lord I don’t know if I’m really the man

To help others further understand the plan

You have for the lives of those you’ve called


I barely know know how to get through

The life which you have called me too

The steps I need to take each new day


Still Lord you call me to lead, lead

Help others plant their own seeds

But I don’t know the words to speak


You call me to lead others of the faith

In a better knowledge of your saving grace

I have known for so many, many years


I guess I’ll do what I always seek to do

Pray for you to guide me on through

And To give me the words I need to say

It’s how I live my life, how I live each day

Taking Life For Granted

Don’t take your life for granted

It may quickly get stripped away,

Leaving you feelin so, so empty,

Hopin, wishin for those better days


Remember each day is not a given,

Today, tomorrow may be the last

You’re up one minute, down the next

Gotta prepare for what comes to pass


Live a life not seeking another’s praise

But in quiet service to another’s needs

In this way life will be much more joyful

And you’ll see fruit from all your deeds


Don’t take your life for granted

It may quickly get stripped away,

Leaving you feelin so, so empty,

Hopin, wishin for those better days


Life is a sum of what you do and say

Remember each day is not a given

So use the time you have left wisely

In order to make sure you’re rightly livin

Dream Away My Days

I see a different life

From the one I live

I see a person so different

Then who I am

And as I awaken

I just can't deny

Some days I wish I were

Under a different sky


I once believed

That I could run

From all that was behind

To a place of green fields

Where everything was so fine

Someday I know

My wish will come true

Til then I must live each day

As a day closer to you

The past is gone

Still, I wish with all I am

I could leave the past alone


Now

My heart cries out for a change

I try not to be the same

As the world around

Some days I win

Some days I lose

But in the end who I am

Is who I choose


Drawn away time after time

In my heart at times I wonder

As I dream

When will come the day

I no longer wander, all will be true

As true as it seems

Til then I must live

My reborn life

As I dream, As I dream, As I dream

The Closer You Get

The closer you get to the end of life

As you’ve watched the miles roll by

It is hard not to think, not to reflect

Of all the things you did and the whys


You look in the rear view, see your life

The highs and lows of the behind

The people you loved over the miles

The friends for a season or a time


The closer you get to the end of life

As you’ve watched the miles roll by

It is hard not to think, not to reflect

Of all the things you did and the whys


Life is just the sum of all the memories

You store deep down inside your mind

The ones which bring you some comfort

The ones which carry you through time


So the closer you get to the end of life

And you have fewer miles up on ahead

Reflect on the miles behind, all the times

You touched a heart by what you did or said

I Can Talk the Talk

I can talk the talk

Like the rest

But will my heart

Pass the test

Can I truly say

Deep down inside

I holy walk on

On the Lord’s side


On the Lord’s side

On the Lord’s side

A heart built for service

A love deep down inside


I know my life

Is not what it

Should be

It holds me back

From what I could be


I need to control

My thoughts

Before they strangle me

So deep down inside

I can always be


On the Lord’s side

On the Lord’s side

A heart built for service

A love deep down inside

Deeply Rooted

Deeply rooted in the word

Deeply rooted in the word

Deeply rooted in the Word of God


Unless your heart is deeply rooted

In the rich, rich soil of God’s Word

Your faith will not grow and blossom

Into the bountiful fruit used of the Lord


Deeply rooted in the word
