Grown by His love and His power
Through light you are nourished
In care, you then flourish
With the rain of the Spirit you’re showered
At first you had so many needs
Just starting out from a seed
But soon you matured
Now ready to serve
The Creator of all land and sea

Author's note: The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "In the Garden" painting © 2012 is by Danny Hahlbohm, all rights reserved by the artist. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master." Now I'd like to ask a very important question.
Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
