Pause for Poetry — More Like You

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

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

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

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.

Pause for Poetry — We Come Before You, Jesus

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

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

We Come Before You, Jesus

We come before you, Jesus,

In humble adoration.

We ask that You will lead us…

A complex, confused nation.

We pray that You’ll be at our side

As each new step we take.

If we’ll walk hand and hand with You…

We will make less mistakes.

You are our refuge and our strength,

Creator of all things.

We’re blessed to have You in our lives…

Our Savior—King of Kings.

Pause for Poetry — Jesus Our Conqueror

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

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

Our Conqueror

by Frances Gregory Pasch

He was beaten beyond recognition

Spat upon, mocked, and abused,

Yet He never denied for one moment

That He was “King of the Jews.”

He had a job to accomplish…

It was all a part of God’s plan.

Had He chosen not to fulfill it,

There would be no salvation for man.

So in spite of the jeers and the taunting,

The crown of thorns and the whips,

He stood still before His accusers

And never opened His lips.

Though they found no charges against Him

He was sentenced to death on the cross.

They chose to deny He was “King of the Jews”

But ultimately it was their loss.

For He rose from the grave, as He promised

Having conquered death and our sin.

Now it’s our time to make a decision…

Deny Him or welcome Him in.
