Praises To The Great Physician!

In August 2019 my sister was diagnosed with cancer. Not long after her diagnosis I wrote a poem called “Jehovah Rapha.” The name Jehovah Rapha means “The Lord Our Healer” and so my poem was really a prayer that came from my heart, pleading with the Lord for mercy and asking The Great Physician to heal my sister.

When I look back at those difficult months the words from Psalm 27:13-14 come to mind. The verses read,

“I would have fainted, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

Obviously it was a very upsetting time for my whole family but Jesus was so faithful to see us through each day at a time. His mercies truly are new every morning.

Do Not Be Afraid

The introduction and spread of the Coronavirus across the Globe has brought an incredible amount of disruption and uncertainty into our lives. It’s easy to be filled with feelings such as fear, anxiety and worry in these troubling times and so I felt inspired to write a poem called “Do Not Be Afraid” in the hope that it can be encouraging and up-lifting.

As we face the unknown I pray that we can bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Jesus Christ as so often the battle against fear starts in the mind! May we be anxious for nothing as we bring our troubles before our mighty, sovereign God and remember that no matter what problems we may be facing, Jesus is the answer!

There’s no denying that life can get pretty scary but when we have the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth leading the way we know we’re in capable hands. With Christ at the helm we need never be afraid.

The Names Of God-El Shaddai

Each month throughout 2020 I'm posting a little rhyming couplet that looks at one or two of the names of God and their meanings. My hope is that they can be an easy way to help memorise just some of the many different names of God! The name for the month of March is El Shaddai.

He Is...

There are countless blessings to having Christ in your heart and knowing Him as your personal Saviour, too many to list really as He is so many wonderful things to His children! My little poem called “He Is…” mentions just a few and I wrote these words in one sitting.

The verses are words of praise that came from my heart one evening and so I hope they can uplift and edify as we dwell on some of the many benefits of Jesus.

Poetry Prayer For March

March brings the first of the Springtime colours here in London and it fills my heart with joy! Beautiful yellow daffodils, purple crocuses and even the odd pink blossom. Wonderful to see as I marvel at God's creation and the changing seasons. May our spirits be refreshed this month, just like the season!
