As He Leads Us we Follow

Today, 1 poem from God’s Rhyme & 2 recent ones.

THE RETURN (God’s Rhyme, Pg. 38)

listen – 

I hear, 

I hear a whisper;

a sound

ever so gentle,

as if a cool breeze


in the heat

were found

            when standing still.

Shh . . . . . 

            I hear it again,


calling me, . . .  “come,


            you are falling,

feel My arms,

            I will catch you.”

“I’ll comfort you son.”

Oh, thank you Father,

            I love You, I missed You.”

“Welcome home,

We rejoice in your homecoming,


“Your room

            is as you left it;

as are you & I, 

            as we once were.”

The water drops

            on His sleeve

were not from storm clouds;

gone they now are.

            No, my tears fell,

fell freely

on His majestic robes of grace.

He so loved me

            and rejoiced in my return.

I wept


                   in His arms,

My Father,

            My Redeemer,  

                              My God.


THE RETURN, a recurring theme.  One I wish I didn't have to write about, but am glad that I can write about.  No matter what I may do, God will always welcome me back.  And when I later realized how I must hurt God when I wander, I also realized that I must also forgive myself.  If I don't, I am still distant from God until I do forgive.


The next two poems were written are the first two written in 2023.


Day two,

The year is new, 

So much to do

Beyond day two.

As I have been blessed,

I must help the rest

Find peace in their life

Overcoming strife.

Yes, I can write a word

Others may have heard.

Now I must share

With love an care.

My life no longer mine,

I have now seen the sigh

Of words ever divine.

I see the finish line.

I will follow where He leads,

I will pray and plant the seeds.

He has prepared good deeds

For  me to serve other’s needs.

Opportunity knocks

And the door unlocks.

I once wrote of Dirty Socks

And God In a Box. 


What is left, 

Writing in bass clef*

Or should I rest

And hope for the best?

I break words down**

Letter by letter,

And only frown

When I am not better.

That was then,

This is now.

This is not about me

And who other’s see.

My life is about God’s Son

And the battle He has won.

The word is His,

The healing is mine,

And as the world I live,

To other’s I must give.

What I have received, 

As in Him I believed,

No longer deceived,

By His word I am set free.



* I played the trombone in elementary and junior high, music written in bass clef.

** I like to taka a word and see how many other words I can make out of the letters.


Dear Heavenly Father we come to you in prayer as we end today’s podcast.  Dave and I thank You for Your leading us through the day and into tomorrow.  We pray that today has been pleasing to You and honors Your glory.

We pray for our listeners and viewers; for their needs, healing and the salvation of those who have not yet accepted the gift of Your grace by faith. 


We pray, Lord, for this world in which we live.  Father, as Christians lead us to proclaiming the gospel where ever we are.  May we do so in a loving  way.  Lead us to the truth of the days we are living in.  

Dear Lord, prepare us and our listeners and viewers for the coming week.  We pray that it is You we live for and You who leads us.  As we walk with you  this week, may it be Your hand clasped around our hand so we may feel the grasp of Your love.

We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.
