Poetry for Jesus

Sharing JESUS through Christian Writing.

“I can say that Jesus’s grace is beautiful, but until I live in it, I will never be changed. Attraction to the gospel is popular, but submission to the Father through Jesus Christ is something that nobody truly desires. Jesus tells us to follow Him, not just His teachings, it is a complete surrender of me, for a complete gain of Him, and until that becomes our daily routine, it will only be a pretty little sticker we place on our fridge door.”

“Does he or she lead you to Christ? Or do they lead you to themselves. Do you fall in love with Jesus when you are with them? Or do you fall in love with them. It’s so easy to make that special someone your top prize, but when it comes to another heart, they cannot be what you are striving for; they can only help you get there.”

“You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful - or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.”

Having hope in God means no one else finishes the story but Him, and everything really will be okay. We do not need to fear optimism. Life will still hurt and there is darkness ahead — but we have a Healer, a Counselor, a King, a Father, a Friend. We can get our hopes up: all the way up to Him.

THE BRIDE

I wonder the feeling

On the eve of your wedding day

And in the morning when you wake up

When you see your wedding dress hung up

When the whole world seems to stop for you.

the_bride

I wonder the feeling

When you are getting ready

Ribbons and flowers everywhere

And then you put on that beautiful dress

You will feel like a princess I’m sure

When the whole world seems to stop for you.

I wonder the feeling

“Our timing, more often than not, does not align with His. We say five years, He says tomorrow. We say today, He says, “Wait on Me.” Obedience through trust must be learned. Patience is an outflow from love. The heart that loves and is nourished by His love resolves to be patient - fully trusting that He knows best; and He does. He really does.”
Susanna Avery (via breanna-lynn)

“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.”

“I met God. Who slowly, painfully and divinely pieced me back together.”
