Our Hope

Inspired after reading Micah 7, this poem gives hope because even if things are at their worst, the change process starts and the old ways are wiped clean so that the new improved ones can develop. This day with God, gain more optimism and hope because of what the Light … Jesus Christ has done on the cross.

Step Ahead

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

For the world can be
A corrupted place
Like a cancer
On the human race.

Awful relationships,
Neighbor against neighbor,
Child against parents,
Much to belabor.

But with the Light,
Old ways are wiped clean
And new improved ways
Come onto the scene.

Bringing more hope,
More believers,
Less atheism.

Bringing success
Over sorrows,
Providing for needs,
Brightening tomorrows.

    Mark, this poem rings all too true for me. Today there is an epedemic of estranged relationships. It is one of my biggest heartaches and challenges on my journey. I recently lost my 26 yr old grandson. Even at his funeral there were family members that clung to their bitterness and made an already hearbreaking event more difficult than words can begin to describe! It tests my faith…in others. I even have a hard time drinking my morning coffee from one of my coffee mugs that I used to love…’With God All Things Are Possible’ , used to greet each day with hope. It is sitting in my cupboard waiting for my return. I know that all things are only possible with willing hearts. God cannot change the unwilling. It is a struggle.
    P.S. I have a memorial for my grandson on my blog….done to honor him and includes pictures of him with his Dad and me (his Grandma) and our family. We were all excluded from the video displayed at Tyler’s funeral and intentionally left out of the prayer. WHO does that….with a pure heart?? Nobody!
    Your poem describes the heartbreak and destruction of our society and families. I would welcome a brighter tomorrow!
