Reflections of Faith Poetry

The title poem “Reflections of Faith” for the book came to me after a time of prayer when I had been asking the Lord if the collection of poems for the book was finished. I felt a confirmation in my spirit that “the book” was finished and immediately the Lord spoke the title, “Reflections of Faith,” to me. I knew that titled expressed exactly what was in my heart about what the poems embodied. Within a day or two of receiving the title for “the book,” the Holy Spirit caused me to write the poem, “Reflections of Faith” which shall always be my standard and hope for this ministry. Since that day in 1994, many other poems have been written and more books are yet to be published. But it is with great joy that the long-awaited fulfillment of the dream to publish the first book has finally been realized, and I share with you here a snippet of the contents of the “Reflections of Faith” book of poetry.

Reflections of Faith

 Reflections of faith…growing ever more dear,
The Truth that You give, the words that I hear…
Deep mysteries revealed by Your Spirit to me;
Your Word made alive are Your gifts to me!
The ears that can hear, the eyes that can see…
The Truth that You give that sets all men free…
Are precious and sweet; a great mystery…
And so undeserved are Your gifts to me!
No credit to me, it all is Your own…
For each of the lines, for each of the poems!
Every word of Your Truth Your Spirit reveals.
I’m only the vessel which Your Spirit fills!
To God be the Glory! You’ve written each one…
Every verse that I write; every song that I’ve sung!
So I humbly marvel at Your gift to me…
And I humbly thank You for love and mercy!

Reflections of faith…growing ever so dear;
Abounding…flowing over with each passing year.
Gifts that are given by Your Spirit to me,
Oh, how I praise and thank only Thee!
For the eyes that would see; for the ears that would hear:
Send forth Your Word and make it so clear!
Give them understanding and Your wisdom too.
Grant that they hear each message from You!
Let no heart be darkened; no heart be deceived…
For truth only enlightens when truth is received.

Send forth Your Word in the Spirit’s power
To touch and to heal each one in this hour!
Let each heart know that they’ve heard from You
Because of Your mercy and love for them too!
For ears that can hear, and eyes that can see
The Truth that You give, will surely be free!
Reflections of faith…speak truth in my heart
To touch and to heal in my deepest part.
So the image of Jesus will become so clear
That others would see Him in me…and draw near!
(2 Corinthians 4:7) “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.” 

Don’t Let Me Take My Eyes Off You

Oh, Lord Jesus,
Don’t let me take my eyes off You~
‘Cause when I do,
Fears and worries overtake me~
Oh how they weigh me down!
You know when I look at circumstance~
(What appears to be…)
It multiplies the fears in me~
So, Lord Jesus,
Don’t let me take my eyes off You!
Help me keep my eyes on You,
And lift this burden that I bear.
I need to let Your love surround me~
For Perfect Love casts out all fear.
Yes, Perfect Love casts out all fear.
I need Your love to reassure me~
You won’t allow more than I can bear:
Help me to remember, Lord,
Those times You carried me when
I didn’t know You were there!
Help me keep my eyes on You,
And lift this burden that I bear.
I need to let Your love surround me~
For Perfect Love casts out all fear.
Yes, Perfect Love casts out all fear.
(1 John 4:18)”There is no fear in love; but
perfect love casts out fear: because fear hath torment.”
