Pause for Poetry — My Sovereign Guide

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

My Sovereign Guide

by Frances Gregory Pasch

I am refreshed, dear Jesus,
By the little things you do.
You speak to me in different ways
But I always know it’s you.

Today I heard a serenade
When I awoke at dawn,
And I still felt your presence
After the songbirds had gone.

You often send me rainbows
When sun reflects on glass.
In troubling times, they speak to me,
“This too, my child, shall pass.”

Sometimes a word pops off the page
While spending time with you.
Your Word shines light upon my path;
Confirms what I’m to do.

You always know what’s best for me;
I trust your perfect plan.
I’m blessed that you’re my Sovereign Guide,
The Awesome, Great I AM.
