Tender Loving Care

- dranilj1: Sunset

There are times when

this sojourn walked

can become wearisome

for the soul and 

it is then the Spirit

guides the soul to

plush green grass with

its sweet fresh scent

to lie down and rest upon

while listening to the

still quiet waters comforted

knowing that in the dawn

of a new morn the soul will

awaken refreshed and restored

from the tender loving care of

The Shepherd.

Narrow Path


enter through the gate

embrace the open pasture

soul’s grazing


Matthew 7:13-14 (AMP)

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it.

Sadje’s What Do You See #8 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

When the soul has been

hewn to love beyond itself

precious is the grace that

has borne another’s burden

~ * ~

Galatians 6:2-3 (AMP)

2 Carry one another’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the requirements of the law of Christ [that is, the law of Christian love]. 3 For if anyone thinks he is something [special] when [in fact] he is nothing [special except in his own eyes], he deceives himself.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,

    which yields its fruit in season

and whose leaf does not wither—

    whatever they do prospers.

The Child Of Leviathan

This poem is inspired from Job 41 (AMP 2015)

The Child Of Leviathan

Fierce is this monster Pride
for it will lead to spiritual suicide
Pride’s heart is as hard as stone
from it no light has ever shone
it is a creature made without fear
destined to destroy the courageous peer

It hates those who divinely love
and is intimidated by forgiveness
it rebukes the generosity of kindness
and seeks to slay with spoken word
it earnestly hungers for gentle spirits to kill
for this is Pride’s will
that it feel powerful and ferocious
like a conqueror thunderous

But this will not last long
with each step Pride takes to rise
is another step to the spirit’s demise
traveling deeper into the depths of Sheol

But there is an Ancient One of days ole
the only One who can conquer
this self-evolved cataclysmic monster
if the name of the Ancient One is spoken
this monster will finally see destruction
and from the ashes will rise Humility
now Pride’s former victims will know its servility

So the moral of this story:
Never allow Pride to become your glory!
