Poems 13

Things are different now
Something happened to me
When I gave my life to Jesus Christ
Things I loved before
Have passed away
Things I never loved
Have come to stay
Things are different now
Something happened to me
When I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ

The Power Of One

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true.
One life can make the difference,
You see, IT'S UP TO YOU!

I cannot ease your aching heart
Nor take your pain away,
But let me stay and take your hand
And walk with you today.

I’ll listen when you need to talk,
I’ll wipe away your tears,
I’ll share your worries when they come,
I’ll help you face your fears.

I’m here to always walk by you,
Each hill you have to climb,
So take my hand, let’s face the world,
And live one day at a time!

You’re not alone, for I am here,
And I’ll go that extra mile,
And when your grief is passing,
I’ll help you learn to smile!

God has not promised skies always blue,
flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God has not promised sun without rain,
joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
unfailing sympathy, undying love.
- Annie Johnson Flint

The Serenity Prayer video: prayers

Go peaceful

Go peaceful
in gentleness
through the violence of these days.
Give freely.
Show tenderness
in all your ways.

Through darkness,
in troubled times
let holiness be your aim.
Seek wisdom.
Let faithfulness
burn like a flame.

God speed you!
God lead you,
and keep you wrapped around His heart!
May you be known by love.

Be righteous.
Speak truthfully
in a world of greed and lies.
Show kindness.
See everyone
through heaven’s eyes.

God hold you,
enfold you,
and keep you wrapped around His heart.
May you be known by love.

(by Paul Field)
