It has been an interesting year here at the beach. Life pretty much came to a standstill for months as is only now starting to get back to what we are calling, “a new normal.” The only constant has been looking to and having faith in God to see us through theses times. over this time I have discovered a new love for free verse. So a lot of the poems offered here are free verse. I hope you enjoy the new poems.

Standing Firm

Prompt is the single phrase “Standing Firm

Digging your heels in the dirt

Standing firm

Even

When the world

Wants to shake you mind body and soul

Even when the world

Wants you to

Do what they deem right

Stand firm and remain faithful

Can‘t Hold Back Jesus

He can move the mountains

He can walk through walls

He can take the lowly man

And make him stand so tall


You can’t hold back Jesus

He can go where He needs to go

You can’t hold back Jesus

You can’t hold Him back


He can quiet the storms

He can still the waves

He can allow the lost ones

To know they are saved


You can’t hold back Jesus

He can go where He needs to go

You can’t hold back Jesus

You can’t hold Him back


Jesus is, Jesus was, Jesus will

Always be the only one who can

Cause, you can’t hold back Jesus

You can’t hold him back


You can’t hold back Jesus

He can go where He needs to go

You can’t hold back Jesus

You can’t hold Him back

Trusting Jesus

Trusting Jesus, that is all


In life I’ve tried all kinds of things

Things to make my life go right

To quiet the storms in my brain

Things to make my heart feel light

When it really wants to feel pain


Some things worked a short time

Some things worked a little longer

But all my ways failed in the end

None made me any stronger

On none of them I could depend


Now, when I’m at the end of the rope

And I’m sure I’m going to lose my grip

I remember there is only one person

I can trust to make I don’t fall or trip


Trusting Jesus, that is all

Trusting Jesus, that is all

When I’ve given up all my hope

Trusting Jesus, that is all

Trusting Jesus to

One Way

All I can tell you

I was one way

and now I’m changed

How it all happened

Is really not that strange


I called out to the one

The only one

Who can change a life

In the blink of an eye

In a twist in time

He can change a persons life


His name you might ask me

I’ll tell you

But you might not believe

Cause,

It takes a rather contrite heart

For you to truly conceive

The power of the Gospel

The words of a prayer


But if you ask me

I can tell you

I was one way

and now I’m changed

How it all happened

Is really not that strange

Whispers

Prompt for this short poem was the word, “Whisper.”

Some whispers

Are loud

Some whispers

Are soft

But of all the whispers

Which have been

Whispered to me

The best ones

Are the whispers

Which are

Whispered to me

From God

Prayer

The prompt for this poem was the word, “Prayer”

Folded hands and bended

Knees

Taking your requests up to the Lord

On high

Cause

Even though God knows all of our needs

He still wants us to seek Him in prayer

It’s how we show

Faith in Him
