this is such a beautiful poem by Fay Ann – so beautiful.
I love the shape and ebb and flow of the rhythm and psalm-like quality – wading through honest lament and returning to eternal hope. Be blessed.
Thank you Fay Ann
This is a beautiful Easter poem of hope – hope placed in us, the church, because of our hope in Him.
The worlds looking for
The answer to cope
The chosen called to spread
Tiny ripples of hope
Of message echoing
The truth known of the way
One that conquered death
That rose on Easter’s day
A peace beyond this world
Known in our joy and strife
Love the only word
Of everlasting life
Like diamonds that sparkle
Upon an ocean bright
Or stars from above
Found in the night
Come now brother sister
As one body unite
A wave of hope rising
Of His glorious light
I recommend you to read this great post by Jennifer, at ‘Feeding on Jesus’.
This is powerful, amazing stuff. Miraculous. I think my heart caught a glimpse through that veil – that it could even be true for me! I shall read it over until I know it. Thank you Jennifer. Thank You Jesus.
Would you like to know one of the best ways to make sure we don’t become like the proverbial dog or sow mentioned here by the Apostle Peter? It’s

Please listen to Feeding on Jesus’ powerful audio message, taking us step by step through receiving and putting on the mighty armour and protection of God.
It’s audio devo day!
I was under the impression that we were done with The Armor of Light series last Friday… but I was wrong! Holy Spirit began to stir my heart with one more episode on this topic after I released that last one. Today, our audio devo is a special edition for the exclusive purpose of practicing together – practicing the art of putting on the full armor of God.
Do you remember the intro to this series? We started out meditating on this verse that prefaces our Ephesians 6 instructions about suiting up with God’s armor: “…Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” (v. 10, NKJV). Putting on the armor is about putting on His strength. God does not command us to be strong in our own power, but rather to be strong in His. As we put on each piece, we…

As often happens when I write something, I then read a post on the same subject. This beautiful poem by Fay Ann describes some of those other types of prayer very clearly. As she says, “God works when we pray. Things happen when we pray. Things change when we pray, mountains move when we pray, and most important, we change when we pray. Keep praying.”
The power of prayer is not the result of the person praying. Rather, the power resides in God who is being prayed to.Prayer opens up a lot of opportunities in our lives. It benefits the mind, body and soul. Prayer gets me through every day, as I ask the Lord to direct my path and guide me along the way.
Below is a poem about the power of prayer. I write it to remind myself and hope it will remind you that prayer is important in our daily lives.
God works when we pray.Things happen when we pray. Things change when we pray, mountains move when we pray, and most important, we change when we pray. Keep praying.
To you reading this, thank you so much for being here. You are special to me and I appreciate you always registering your presence here. May God be with you as you…

I’ve just done an extended audio version as a meditation.
Please tell me how you find it, in the comments.

In Our Gethsemane
“How is it I should pray?”
– In my distress I often say –
But He has shown me the way,
– In His Gethsemane…
It was the night on which He prayed
– for in His flesh He was afraid –
“Your Will be done”, he said.
He asked if we would stay
– An hour with Him and pray –
On this, His darkest day
– In His Gethsemane…
It was the night He was betrayed
– that was when He paid –
For the mess that we have made.
“Thy Will be done?” I say,
– Not an easy prayer to pray! –
But I TRUST that YOU WILL stay
– In MY Gethsemane.
(Holy Thursday – 1st April, 2021.)
Reflecting on disappointment – when God says “No, dear child!”
In the hour of our greatest need – in fear, worry…

This post ministered greatly to my heart and soul.
“You are always with me, and everything I have is yours” (Luke 15:31, NIV)
“This is my Father’s world.” I recently heard Holy Spirit whisper to my heart these profound hymn lyrics as I was out and about. As I approached the main square of our city, the sky was extravagant. The Itaya River was up ahead. The beauty of the fading day rested on my senses. Holy Spirit pointed out to me how creation’s loveliness was overwhelmingly greater than the signs of poverty around the city. In spite of the bad things that happen here, this is my Father’s world.
Later, I was sitting in my rocking chair in our back yard, praying. He whispered it again. Gazing up at the soft clouds floating by, I took in His bounty. The green leaves greeted me brightly with their gentle rustling, and I received His generosity. The songbirds regaled me…

I have to share this beautiful piece of writing. Thank you, Natasha and brother. 😀 Bless you both.
It has become blatantly apparent
That JESUS is the Prince of Peace
When boats were shaking and hearts were desperate
Desperate for help
Desperate for saving
He was right there with them
In the very situation were fear and panic existed, there he was with peace
There was a Prince
There was the Prince of Peace
When he was in a sticky situation with hungry people
And the people who walked with him and experienced his power doubted and fretted
He was at ease
He was peaceful
There was the Prince of peace
To think this is someone I have been forfeiting
I tried to maneuver around all the ways to find peace like a maze
But it has always been one track
I didn’t actively forfeit him though but I didn’t choose him either
To forfeit the very definition of “peace is not…

I’m so blessed to reread this. Suzie still needs to hear it over and over.
Yesterday and today Sue has been experiencing an incredible sensation of hope and of joy. This has come from the revelation that she can never earn her innocence or salvation. To get it right, to live by the rules, all these things are impossible to achieve in their totality. But that is the good news of Jesus – by believing in him, we appropriate His innocence, as the person bringing the spotless lamb in times past did (he would place a hand on the head of the innocent lamb and exchange his sin for the lamb’s purity. The lamb carrying the sin and guilt would then be sacrificed in his place and he would have been given pardon) And Jesus came to restore that lost innocence for all people, for all time. If we believe He carried ALL of our sinfulness to the cross and was sacrificed to bring innocence…
