The Bible

Ringing through this collections of poems is a great love for the Holy Bible, and a simple theme, that if the Bible is to have any meaning it has to be relevant to our present lives. There are many poems that take the reader to the heart of a Bible story, challenging one to consider the reality of what actually happened, – did Moses see a burning bush that was not consumed, were five thousand really fed from just five loaves and two fishes, was a violent tempest stilled? Were sin, disease and death really overcome? And interwoven with these Biblical accounts in verse or prose are other poems that show a searching out of thought and realisation that can be summarised in the simple knowledge that God is Love.

The earnest expectation is that for any reader any one of these poems may find for them an angel thought that brings comfort and healing, and whispers of God’s love. The lightest touch is all it takes for the gentle kiss of inspiration to overcome the direst circumstance and leave healing, peace and reconciliation.

Come, Trust God

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.   Proverbs 3:5,6

Come, trust God.
No case to plead.
Come, trust God
He knows thy need.

Let go material rod,
Lean fully on thy God.
Take each step as saints have trod,
Obedient to this angel prod:
Come, trust God.

Oh omnipresent Father
I grasp Your hand in mine.
Oh let me trust, of course I must,
Thy guidance so divine.

Come, trust Love.
This simple message clear:
His everlasting arms embrace
His children everywhere.

Come, listen!
Wisdom talks to thee.
This is your path, this your next step.
Trust God and you will see!
