Pause for Poetry I am Refreshed

courtesy unsplashWelcome to Pause for Poetry, featuring a poem, I Am Refreshed, written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

I Am Refreshed


I am refreshed, dear Jesus,

By the little things you do.

You speak to me in different ways

And let me know it’s You.

Today I heard a serenade

When I awoke at dawn,

And I still felt Your presence

When all the birds were 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.

It gives direction to my soul…

Confirms what I’m to do.

You always know what’s best for me

It’s all part of your plan.

I’m blessed that You’re my Shepherd,

The Awesome, Great I AM.
