Re-birth from the shattered (A Poem)


Innocently, our mystery and providence 

brakes the stranglehold upon this confidence

and as the attempt to grasp a hold of it 

we lose our grip, it slips as does our wit. 


And all we can reclaim are the broken bits

shattered and jagged are all that we get

we slice our fingers until they bleed 

picking up the things that we thought we’d need. 


Yet on our knees with all of this mess

contrite, we fight this  need to confess

yet it bites at our heels and pulls us still

discarding the shattered and hopes that will kill.


A light to our sight is cast in our night

it scatters our fears and increases our fight

it charges our hope, the need to be free

lifting our burdens and making us see


That death to the body is not death to the soul

there is a Savior who is making us whole.

We might be weak but He will be strong 

lifting our burdens, and righting the wrong.


Find strength dear sinner, find it today

we aren’t alone even when in this fray

Though we are broken and tattered and torn

 An eternal salvation and life is re-born!  

A Prayer For Boston

Sometimes there are days, like today that people just don’t make sense…and circumstances don’t make sense either. I heard it on the radio today that an act of terrorism (yes let’s call it what it is) took place within our country, this time in Boston.

My prayers go out to those effected by this horrific event…no one should have to experience something like this. Acts of violence perpetrated by single individuals or groups all end be same way, more blood shed.

I won’t sermonize this event…I just want to ask that we pray for those who have been injured and effected in other ways.

Lord be with those who are hurting right now, for those who are afraid…be their Rock and Fortress. You are the Great Physician, please provide healing and miracles. Lord, you are a God of love and justice, and we ask that those who harm others would find your justice as we too consider out actions daily. Provide your understanding in times like this when nothing makes sense. Your Kingdom and Will be done in our lives today. -Amen.
