I've written a number of christian poems, although I'm not sure whether the title is already used. Anyway, I'll leave some of them here. Look forward to them, I'd say. Fortunately, I'm granted with writing skills and the poems I wrote got good reactions up to now... Posting some soon! If you have a request for a specific topic, feel free to leave it.

I'll start off with the first poem I wrote.

Everyone a pearl
We can all be pearls,
Because God grants us all a chance.
A second and third chance he'll give us,
when we ask Him.
He likes to give.
Nobody will be rejected,
Because it hurts Him.
He won't abandon anyone,
for He actually wants to save us.
Whoever you are or wherever you come from,
His arms are open to everyone.
When you accept Him,
He'll give you His light,
to share it to the world.
You'll shine in the darkness
and be a pearl in God's hand.
Then the world can see God through you,
and you'll be a living proof
that God isn't a imagination,
no mirage nor illusion.
If you join the other pearls,
the light gets stronger,
and it'll become a beacon.
That's when the world sees
we were right.
The world'll believe,
God exists and lives,
the bible His word is,
and not a fairytale.
Join the other pearls
and show you're a christian
to open God's letter
for everyone to read.

This one means a lot to me:

God's Family
We often say "We're God's children."
That is but all too true.
For we are part of God's family.
Our fellow Christians are our brothers and sisters.
Even God is direct family.
Jesus himself said:
"For all that do the will of my Father in the heavens
is my brother, my sister and my mother."
That's how close we are.
And why we're not His father?
He has a Father already,
that's also our Father.

the intervals are large, sorry 'bout that.
Anyway... how about my vision to other people?

God's treasure chest
I think sometimes that we are jewels for God,
All with a different color, size and shape.
Some are still ore, others are more a rock.
God keeps the jewels of His children safely in His treasure chest.
He often takes them out to work on them.
To remove the rock, and to shave and polish them, so we all may shine.
Gleam as He meant us.
And when we're ready, He lays us in His vitrine to reflect His glory.


This is also about changing. Sometimes He can chip a chunk of rock in one fell swoop, some things take time. But the result is always a beaty of a personality. And remember: even the worst person has a tiny gem in their personality! Even when it's only the size of a grain of sand! That's what I believe!

We had a bapthesise in the church today! It's party time!

Party in Heaven
The trumpets call, the horn is blown, the harp and lyre are played.
God says: 'Let there be a party, for I got another child.
I cannot be sad, because My family has grown.
Angels, cheer, cherubs, rejoice,
For a wanderer has come home.'
God rejoices so much every time someone chooses for Him,
He'll start a party in heaven, and take the wandering with tears of joy in His arms.

Have you ever thought how much God as Father is?

God as Father
What is it to have God as Father?
Have a God that cares for you.
Have a God that cares about you.
Have a God that carries you.
That's your Teacher, and patiently improves your mistakes.
A support and ally.
Where you can vent and leave your sorrows.
Your rock in the waves.
Your protector, who always wakes.
That's what it means.
Even when He seems far away, His love is unconditional.
For His loyalty endures forever.
Amen!

It's been a while... Completely forgot this thread >.<

The cross
I can imagine it was hard to die like that.
You didn't even want it yourself, still You did it.
There is no greater love, greater mercy is impossible.
You had to bring the perfect sacrifice yourself.
But You did it, for the world, for mankind, for me.
It looked like it was over, until you called: "It is done!"

What follows? you should know.

The grave
After the cross came the grave.
A dark pit of forgetfulness.
You, however, had other plans.
And You rose, put down Your linen.
Rolled the stone away and left.
After thee days you departed to not just slay sin, but also death.
The evil had to admit it had lost.
Time after time you won, Lord.
You are worthy of being a winner.
You deserve it to win, and with that our honor.
May your glory be sung,
a thousand times a tenthousand years, to infinity.

Three in one, one in three
[i]Father, Son and Spirit form the Three-unity.
Each of them are God.
Individually, but also together.
That's why you can't separate them, splitting is impossible.
It's also the secret to their co-operation.
They don't need to consult.
Argues don't happen.
What should become if the Father had to ask the Spirit:
"Is this a good idea?"
Or the Spirit to the Son:
"Is this allowed?"
It'd become a mess.
Praised be the Three-in-one.
If they weren't one, we wouldn't be saved.
A divided house cannot stand.
But they are One in three and three in One.
And because of their unity victors.

I wonder... Is anyone reading this?
The weird God
[i]Actually I don't really wonder why people don't believe.
If you think about it, God is weird.
He's of extremes.
Both the beginning and the end, the saving and the killing.
He's above our understanding.
Also the Three-Unity we don't get.
We compare to water and eggs, but no matter how close we come, examples never fully explain Him.
Neither have we proof for his existence, there are too few hints.
We can't point to Heaven, we can't locate Him.
It's mostly believing God is.
And faith doesn't care about logic.
God ignores the laws of nature.
He's not submitted to them.
He even made them.
He's one big riddle, a mystery without answer.
Only after He comes back we'll see, only after that day we will see.
But on this Earth He was, is and stays weird to us.

...Should I even care about who reads this?
The God of Silence
Despite God's power, we meet Him in the silence.
A light breeze, a soft whisper, only disturbed by the hushing of the trees.
Also Jesus and Elia didn't find Him in the storm, not the quake nor the fire.
No, in their humbleness and loneliness they found Him in the silence.
Let us, too, be silent, and ask God to come close so we can meet Him.

...No, I shouldn't. Like, at all.
"I am that I am"
"Jahweh" was the name God spoke from the blackberry bush to Moses.
Translated it means "I am that I am".
It says so much about Him.
His unchanging, his eternity.
And that's good.
What if God changed?
What would happen to the world?
Little good, I suspect.
But that is not God.
After all, He was, is and will be.
Always the same.

Blessed
We've been blessed by God.
Count them.
They're hundreds.
He blessed us so much we ourselves are wells of blessings.
For nothing God blessed us, for nothing we should bless ourselves.
We are even asked to bless our worst enemy so much,
they don't know what they should do with it.
Bless us, God, so we can bless too.

What do you mean, "perfect"?
Our world runs on ideals.
Us is told what to do to be "perfect".
But think.
How much people make it?
Very few, I tell you.
"perfection" is an illusion.
Unless you're called God and created the world.
I make it worse: He doesn't want us to show ourselves better then we are.
He actually wants the "normal" you, because He made you that way.
And there's nothing wrong with that!

God's equipment
[i]Everybody knows what knights wore.
helmet, armour, sword, shield...
Those things were necessary.
Now too, however.
Only not the physical version.
Now you need God's version.
Because under fiendship is something worse: demons.'
Demons and evil spirits.
To stand up to them you need the following:
The helmet of freedom,
the belt of truth,
the chainmail of justice,
the sandals of evangalisation,
the shield of faith
and the sword of God's Word.
They can be obtained easily:
accept Jesus and mean it!
God gives you then His equipment in your specific size.
And that's not all.
Jesus himself will be your leader, and simultaneously your helper.
He'll teach you how to win the battle, together with Him!

Spiritual fire
Who is a Christian has spiritual fire,
a fire lighted by the Spirit.
The Spirit upkeeps it and fires it up.
It makes you a light, a beacon of hope.
You can light new fires with it, or revive old ones.
You got it to share it.
"For one doesn't light a lamp to conceal it."
That's what Jesus said to learn us what His Spirit wants from us.
Share your flame!

Hope, Faith and Love
One of the greatest trios,
Almost the best things on Earth.
It hurts me every time I see there's ashortage to them.
Hate, doubt and despair flourish and tear the earth.
The world's not short on those.
That's why we need to spread the good things in it.
We can drive the evil away wiht them, for the good things win.
If we stand and keep up we can free the earth and rewin it.
And if we ask God to help, He'll gladly do so.
Then we're victors, more than victors, so I ask:
Help us Lord, to show the world this trio.

Singing for the Lord
If we sing to the Lord, it's like rising scent.
A sacrifice, he gladly accepts.
If we sing his honour, we recognize His name.
An act, he likes.
If we cheer his praise, we prove His majesty.
A gift, that makes him happy.
Normal things, everyone can do.
Small gifts, everyone can give.
Of course, we have to mean it.
That is the only condition.
Be yourself, that's enough for Him to accept you and your gift.

The last supper
[i]It was the night of Jesus' capture.
The disciples knew nothing, except Jude.
Jesus took a bread and broke it.
"This is my body."
The disciples didn't understand.
Jesus took the cup.
"This is my blood, spilled for forgiveness of sin."
They didn't understand again.
He spoke in symbols,
that became reality at the cross.
Once a prediction,
symbolism that became reality.
Now a memory,
symbolism that was reality.

Light and darkness
There is light where's darkness,
and darkness where there's light.
They always come toghether.
God made the light,
with the darkness already there,
but He didn't care.
the contrast stays, but eventually the light wins.
Because the light belongs to God, and God wins.
His kingdom is infallible,
his throne never wobbles.'
When he puts up His crown it's over, and the battle won,
the darkness will be no more.
