A life of faith is a hard life to live. It is far easier to give up or give in than to endure and grow stringer. These poems are inspired by little glimpses of a faith based life I pick up along my journey. While I do write these to inspire myself or give myself into what living a faith based life really means. I also write these poems so you may be blessed a little or a lot in your daily journey. I hope you enjoy them.

The Prompt for this one is mainly the fact in life and faith we have up days and down days.

Life Is...

Life is

Up and Down

In and out

Give and take


But there is one thing

That never changes

Never changes


God’s Word


It is the same

Yesterday

Today

Tomorrow

Everyday


Not one word

Has been added

No words were

Taken away

Though man has tried

And tried and tried

To make God’s word say

What they want

It to say


Life is

Up and Down

In and out

Give and take

But there is one thing

That never changes

Never changes


God’s Word

I wrote this not really from a prompt but from an idea which popped into my head.

Slip Sliding Away

I’ve know days when

My faith was near

I’ve know days when

Nothing seemed clear

There was no rhyme

No reason, no purpose

For my life

Running in circles

No end in sight


Slip slidin’ away

Slip slidin’ away

Trying to stand up

But I still slip

Slip slidin’ away


I’ve tried to look at life

As a beginning

Which leads to an end

Each day I’d pretend

Would be better than

The last

But as I’ve learned

In the past

They are all the same

The only thing which changes

Is where you put your faith

In the ideas of man

Or Jesus who gives life

Anything else is

Slip slidin’ away

Slip slidin’ away

Trying to stand up

But I still slip

Slip slidin’ away


Slip slidin’ away

Slip slidin’ away

Trying to stand up

But I still slip

Slip slidin’ away

I got the idea for this be from a seminar by a well known Philly pastor I went to a long time ago.

It’s Friday But Sundays Coming

It’s Friday but Sundays comin’

What more can be said

Can’t have life one day

The other six be dead


Sunday is just one day

It takes seven to make a week

What do you do the other days

Whose truth do you seek


It’s friday but sundays comin’

Is there any guilt

Or are you livin’ your life

As the church god built


Chuch is not just a building

Where on sunday we go

Church is living the life

Of the savior you know


It’s friday but sundays comin’

What more can i say

Are you livin your walk

Yours or god’s way

The idea comes from something I heard about you live a life of faith stuck in a rut or moving along the road. It all depends whether you faith is growing or standing still.

Reset Your Life

It’s time for you to reset your life

To put away all your sin and strife

Just push escape leave the past life behind

Move to a new life, more joy you’ll find


Reset your life, reset your life

Just push escape

Reset your life, reset your life


Reset your life Your life is a mess

It’s time for a change, time to confess

Reset your life, placing tomorrow in His hands

Living life according to a more divine plan


Reset your life, reset your life

Just push escape

Reset your life, reset your life

The idea for this poem comes from the notion people need to evaluate

Why?

Why should you believe Jesus is the Son?

Why should you believe in what He’s done?

You’ve never met him, never saw His works

All you have is a book of old words


But look at what your eyes can’t see

All His works, the people he set free

The lives He’s changed, all for the good

The hurts He’s healed, no one else could

He’s clearly still very much at work today

He still answers those prayers sent His way

He still lifts up lives from the depths

He brings the heart a whole new breath


So why should you believe in the Son?

So why believe in the good He’s done

Because

He wants to come and change your heart

He wants you to come and never depart

The idea for this poem came from the fact that many read their Bible but never use the Word to help shape their faith.

The Word

You hear the Word

Yeah, sure it’s okay

But what do you do

With the Word of God

Each and every day


Do you read it?

Do you study it?

Do you take it to heart?


Do you love it?

Do you share it?

Do you let it not depart?


You hear the Word

Yeah, sure it’s okay

But what do you do

With the Word of God

Each and every day


Do you believe it?

Do you trust it ?

Do you see it as truth?


Do you use it?

Do you seek it?

Do you accept it as is?


God’s Word never changes

It’s the same today as before

Though many try to change it

Or write it off as an old folklore


One question is left to ask you

One question for you this day


You hear the Word

Yeah, sure it’s okay

But what do you do

With the Word of God

Each and every day

Faith

Can’t

See

Nor touch

Still believe

Deep inside your heart

Impacts how you live all your life
