Healing Grace

I write thoughts God gives me along my spiritual journey. To me this journey is the most challenging but also the most exciting one can ever undertake. I hope my poetry would inspire, encourage and give hope and insights to readers.






Gloom, doubt, fear, stalked in
-like ugly frogs in mire-
tried to squeeze into my inner place,
silence I embrace.

No, I cannot be robbed of what I own,
then came the call,
"step out with your sword".

That voice my sunken senses stirred,
my heart rebelled
against that which would steal
 my peace, my freedom.

God stands by me in heaven and in hell
His Word-- refining, blazing torch
I shall Him praise
within His healing grace.
