Phoenix

Phoenix

Trodden down, by those deemed fair,
If He had perished, who would care?
The One rejected, yet uncommon flair,
Riding the clouds, ascending the air!
~ D.F.

*************
“When He had said this, as they were looking on, He was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight.”
~ Acts 1:9

Gordian Knots

Gordian Knots

Trudging high mountains to the valleys, dark below,
Where breath grows thin and courage flees to cold,
Draw warmly then to our sweet Lord, beware to lose Him not,
Grasp that hand with sure faith!
He will loosen life’s Gordian knots.
~ D.F.

Flaw

Flaw

Into His courts, come enter, low and humble, unadorned,
Embellishments not desired, a simple heart, He’s fond.
At His side, then marvel, drink His wisdom, learn His laws,
How death through love was conquered, banished, our fatal flaw.
~ D.F.

Stitch

Stitch

Drawn from every quarter, on the rack, this life,
Slow and sure, He stretches, our sinew, thin and fine.
Til the point of tearing, ah, wounding of our pride,
A stitch, poor ego mended, nature by trial, refine.
~ D.F.

“For He wounds, but He binds up; He strikes, but his hands give healing.”
~ Job 5:18
