I wish that I could paint you peace.
It is illusive.
And then sometimes all consuming
My hope is in the hopeful
because you are a child of the Most High God.
In His hand you have wings.
His hands wrap around you.
Engulfing you in what you thought unreachable.
You are at the top of the most high mountain
You become a super-hero.
Because Peace lies in the hand of God
And you are held there.
Oh I wish I could paint you Peace
But for now, I will paint
I will paint for you
for all that is love and true
for my Savior
my colors point to the One.
Peace is my word for 2016. What is yours?
Poem inspired by John 1:32-34 that says:
"Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. 33And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ 34I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”f
12 You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
