Pause for Poetry Faithfully

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

Faithfully

Lord, help me

to never compromise

the Gospel.

Remove my desire

to please everyone

at the expense

of displeasing You.

Imprint your Word

so deeply in my heart

that I will faithfully

proclaim the Good News

with Holy Ghost boldness.

Pause for Poetry Learning to Wait

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

Learning To Wait

 

Lord, I’m learning

That when You don’t answer

My prayers right away,

There’s a good reason.

Perhaps I need to change first,

Perhaps I need to grow more,

Perhaps I can’t handle the outcome.

So I’m learning to rest in You

As I wait for answers.

I know that You only want

What’s best for me.

I’m learning that You are able

To reveal the reason for Your delays,

But You may not always do that.

I’m learning that Your ways

Are always better than mine;

That You are able to bless me

Abundantly more than I ever dreamed.

Lord, I’m learning.

Pause for Poetry — More Like You

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

More Like You

Today, Lord, I feel like violin strings

being tuned.

With each twist of Your fingers,

You adjust the tension

As you stretch me

To be more in harmony with Your will.

I want to say “Stop!”

But Your Word says

You refine those You love.

How blessed I am

that You care enough

to fine-tune me

to sound more like You.

Pause for Poetry — It’s Never Too Late

Welcome to Pause for Poetry, featuring a poem, It’s Never Too Late, written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

It’s Never Too Late

It’s never too late to start over;

God’s forgiveness never runs dry.

Just call out to Christ for deep cleansing;

He intercedes for you from on high.

Then step out in faith, fully trusting

That in Him you cannot go wrong;

With his Holy Spirit within you

You’ll rejoice and sing a new song.
