Poems about Jesus.
Each Sunday, I plan on taking a break from devotional-type writing to share an original poem.
Happy Mother’s Day! Much love especially to my Mom, my bride Sarah, and my sister Brittni – all such great Moms. I am also thinking fondly of my Grandmother, Jessie Clark, and her children Janice (Dan), Carol, Beth (Stuart), David, Nancy (Rod), Judy (Buck), and Gregg (Lynn), and my many cousins and family. This is the first Mother’s Day without my Grandmother and we miss her much, but are so very thankful for her life, her legacy, and, above all, that she is with Jesus now. It may seem a little strange to post a poem called “Death’s Delusion” on Mother’s Day, but I know there are a lot of people missing their Mothers today (and Mothers missing their children), and I encourage you all in the hope we have in Jesus Christ. Thank the Lord for the gift of Mothers! Hope you all have a great day!
Death believes he has won the war
When we breathe our last breath
His minions celebrate and shout,
“Another has been claimed by Death!”
Through Jesus, Death is not feared
Though he looks like a dragon, he has been tamed
By the Living King in whom I cling
I cry victoriously, “Oh Death, where is your victory?”
“Oh Death, where is your sting?”
