God’s “Crazy” Thoughts.

What if as you lie right on your bed Battling with your fears and failures An angel appears and calls you “Mighty”? Would you look up and laugh him to scorn? Maybe I would, or I may even ignore him. He must have missed where he was going. ****** What if as you sweep your…

I Dare

In the raging storm, Crashing upon the boat of my soul Tearing me between my love for you And the lust I found in me I dare to look for You. ***** In the steamy kitchen of longings Where the deepest me is served on a platter Kept away from the scrutinizing eyes Of men…

Jochebed

It was a cold morning, the wind swooshed against the window pane of the house, as leaves rustled to its rhythm. It was expected this way at that time of the year. Everything was perfectly fine—everything, expect Jochebed’s mind. Jochebed stood from her seat, wriggling as she lifted the clothes beside her. She stepped outside…

Shield me Lord

Shield me Lord When I feel like an open book In the midst of ready writers Of pain, strife and sorrow *****   Shield me Lord When I feel like a wounded sheep Yet having to walk down the alley Where the pack of wolves lay *****   Shield me Lord When the best of…

But for the glory of God

“Watch out!” the chariot driver shouted at the woman, with the vessel on her head, narrowly escaping hitting her from behind. His scream jerked the episodically drooping head of Eliphaz back to a steady state. He quickly remembered where he was, why he was there and where he was going—Bethabara, where that fiery preacher, who…

The Star

Tiny, isolated in the sky Minute, yet distinct The star that led the men The men who were called wise. *****   Have you wondered? Oh, or you have pondered? How a star, so small Could lead such a mighty tour *****   Shouldn’t it be such a great light? That could at least light…

Such a time as this

Esther walked down the hallway, her mind wrapped around so many things. “What could be the problem?” She had just been told that her uncle, Mordecai had decorated his head with ashes and was looking like a mad man in his tattered clothes, together with his loud wailings. She could read from the expression of…
