What...is the purpose of Mercy...?
When Ancient Light Shall Come

I'd like to always write poetry that paints a rosy picture of our Christian journey but, I have to be honest...it is not always easy. The battle between good and evil forever rages and the main objective of the enemy is take away the faith of the believer...to turn the believer away from the One and Only Redeemer. During the times when we are being fiercely buffeted, we must remember that The Lord did not promise us a life free of trials...what He promised in His Word, was that He would go with us through the trials and...never...leave us alone. And He has not changed at all...Almighty God will always be the Master and Savior of our lives...if...we let Him. Thus, it is my hope and my prayer that we, who have started with Christ, will end with Christ...not ever departing from Him who is so Wondrous and so True. Today, tomorrow and forever...God is... All.
Oh, Wondrous One...
how You do keep me... how
tenderly...your love surrounds me~~~
Upon Your soft breast
I rest my head...
within your constant grasp
...my burdens lapse~~~
are the substance of my life...
all my tomorrows...belong to you~~~
Oh, Wondrous One...!
I can see...my eternal home realized...
upon Your heavenly chariots
For this one thing now...I pray...
when the time of my departure
from this world arrives...please
stand ever by my side~~~
Having stood for that for which You died...
having bourn the lash forYour arms stretched out wide...
when bleeding from this world I tear...my mind
frazzled from the battles~~~
if these lips should anything but utter...
Oh! Wondrous One!
Is 43:2, Ps 86:1, Ps 34:19, 1Pet 4:12, Rm 5:3, Rm 8:35

|Joyce, your poem is a place to come and reach out for inspiration my friend. "If these lips should anything but utter, Oh! Wondrous One!" Certainly is a thought that that captures the meaning
of that meeting. May peace and love be with you. Jon Michael

|Oh so wonderfully expressed and felt. This deeply touched my heart.|
|Reviewed by Darkest Angel (Reader)
|This is clearly written from a heart of faithfullness, and is full of presence. Every word and every line serves to say your peace with God, and your desires with Him, also. In the ending of this one, I see your servitude and joy in your service. I know He will be happy with you, Joyce Bell. This is very well expressed and written.|

|Deep, poignant and profound.
No-one knows until judgement day.
Oh yeah, except the TV evangelists
with their Pray As You Go,mega money entrance fee.
Keep on the narrow, my dear friend.

|Regis is right, Joyce, this poem does read like a prayerful psalm, and as George and Christine say there is much beauty and radiance, here, too.
This uplifts and comforts.
