Give and Take
God has a clean scale.
If He weighs, He does so precise.
And He won't let the scale drop to the negative.
Our God of love wouldn't do so with His own children.
If He brings tears of sadness in one bowl He puts tears of joy in the other.
If He takes something, a gift is in return.
After all, He is the God of loyalty,
the God of mercy, our God of love.

Holy Friendship
Before there is a coalition, there has to be friendship.
After all, emenies don't work together.
So before God can be our ally, we have to be His friend.
God wants to be more than just God anyway.
He doens't want to just command us.
No, He wants to be Father and Friend too.
Stand very close to us.
Live in us through the Spirit, even.
There are two places where God definately wants to support us:
In us and near us.
But He wants one thing at all costs: Be with us and go with us.

God's scale
God has a pure scale.
If He weighs, he does so presice.
He'll never let that scale fall to the negative.
The God of love wouldn't do that to His children.
If He pours tears of sadness in one bowl He puts tears of joy in the other.
If He takes away, a gift is in return.
After all, He is the God of loyalty,
the God of mercy,
our God of love.

The beauty of the creation
Look around you.
The plants, the animals, the sky.
They're all beautiful, each in their own way.
God made them all, with eye for detail and great precision.
He is the Creator without second.
And us is asked to take care of it.
But alas, we misuse it.
Our winnings are more important than nature.
God gave the Earth in trust.
I get mad and sad if I see Earth like this.
Fortunately, the hope is not yet lost.
There are people who think the creation is worth protection.
Act now and recovery can happen, for our beautiful nature.

The Shepherd
God is a Shepherd and we His sheep.
He leads us with His staff.
He makes sure we're short on nothing.
He knows the best fields and the clearest trickles.
His staff is with Him to save us from attackers.
He counts the herd over and over.
If even one is missing,
He goes out to seek the wandering and take them back with joy.
We can graze peacefully under His watching eye,
for He is a very good Shepherd.

A personal one:
What I felt
Despite my age I've been through a rollercoaster with God.
I knew from Him, but didn't really believe.
God, however, planted a seed of faith very soon.
It didn't get room to grow, because I wrestled.
With God, with myself.
I blamed my fate on Him.
But God kept calling me.
He pulled on me through the seed, despite it being no more than some roots.
Until I asked in the bus one day:
"Teach me to live myself, teach me to live with You."
The rest that came over me proved me He was there for me.
And showed me I pushed my fate on the wrong person.
Also I stopped making a demigod of Him so I could easily fit Him in my stories.
Fortunately those are gone.
I have learned and the seed has grown.
I know better how God speaks to me.
Here I am, Lord. You can be my God.


Wonder what story I'm talking about?
It was a story of a better me I called "Star Sjoerd" in which I'd fight darkness with other characters of mine. My fursona is one of the few remains. However, in order to make it work out I had to take control of God. Glad it's gone! Funny detail though: the notebook containing that story now holds these poems.
It once held my greatest faith mistake, now my greatest faith achievement. Weird, huh?

Living Water
Most people thirst for happiness,
yet they have to visit the sources they have over and over.
But those who accept God get living water.
The Spirit comes in them and forms the source Himself.
God self makes the well from which it comes.
The living water will become their source of happiness.
And they don't have to be afraid that they come without,
for it's an eternal source, the source of God.

Jesus' Return
We all say Jesus returns soon.
But how long is "soon?"
We can't even make the roughest prediction.
Only the Father knows it.
Fortunately His return is a promise.
And God never breaks His promises.
It's sure He returns.
And if He returns, His children will be truly saved,
and we can go into the gates of the new Jerusalem without shame.

Gifts from and for Him
Everyone got talents.
Some are good at singing, others draw better.
One thing these talents have in common:
They've been given by God.
Oh wait, not at all.
They also share one best goal:
To praise and lift God.
He gave them, to return a bit of it.
Do you use your talent for that too?
If not, do so.
It'll surprise you how great it is.
God has destined them for that.
He takes joy of it.
There is little better.
Return your talent and share it with the world!

Human hearts as farm
God is like a farmer, that tries to sow with His Word as seed and our hearts as farm.
Every heart is different soil: hard, soft, rich, barren...
The harder the soil, the less that hearts wants to do with the Word.
The richer the soil, the more the heart wants to do with the Word.
But no matter what soil God faces, he sows always and everywhere.
And when the Word bears fruit, it's harvest time.
With thirty, sixty or hundred the harvest comes in.
Every new seed He takes in with care, to also sow it with care.
Fortunately He does so, for the Word is worthy to be shared.


...And so are my poems, even though I say so myself.

The Refreshing God
Come close to God and He can touch you.
A very loving touch you receive.
The love in it is enough to wash all your worries, fears and struggles from you.
And simultaneously fill you with peace.
He heals and refreshes you so you can go back into the world with fresh energy.

God's Road
God's road is straight and smooth, bright but narrow.
You can't get lost on it.
Still it's heavy sometimes,
by drawbacks or resistance.
Then do not fear, for God Himself will guide and protect you.
Whatever you go through, whoever you are,
God's road has but one target:
A life in His kingdom, forever with Him.

Miracles do happen!
Spontaneous healing,
Easy victory.
They're often mentioned in the bible, miracles.
What most people don't realise is that they are of all times.
Even today God does miracles to display His glory.
Maybe not as often as you hope,
but more often than you expect.
You can never see them coming.
But that miracles DO happen I can assure you!

And the last for now :'(
The child
A child, born in a feeder,
attracts the starlight.
As the smallest under the men,
His glory is sung by the angels.
The armies sing full of passion to the shepherds.
They leave their flock behind to praise the child.
It seems a normal child, but it's the start of the rescue.
The shepherds give it a lamb.
The Wise men from the east see the bright star,
the star of David.
They too go on journey to praise it.
They give it luxe presents:
gold, incense and mirrh.
They know what for a King in in the feeder:
The long expected,
Saviour of mankind,
Light of the world,
Son of God.
His name is Jesus, Immanuel,
God with us,
to show us the way to the Father.


...Reactions? ...Anyone? (voice echoes through empty void)
