Healing Our Divisions

This poem is written as a traditional Sonnet, but it can certainly be read as a prayer.  God’s peace!

Lives pretending to follow a Holy God

Being of the flesh, greater than the spirit

Living as infants in our Lord Jesus Christ

Thirsty for our Father’s love, we shall fear it


Life filled with jealousy and quarrelsome times

Behaving outside of our Father’s design

Belonging to the Left, beholding the Right

Only walking with Jesus, should lives align


Sowing life’s seeds for a bountiful harvest

Thirsty for true living water and care

This world’s Master Builder brings His hope-filled Grace

Humbling kneeling at the Cross, hear our prayers


Only through our Lord Jesus, rests our foundation

Unifying voices throughout this nation

From 1 Corinthians 3:21-23:  “So let no one boast about human leaders.  For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all belong to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.”

  1. Normally I don’t comment on your religious posts. Call it a lack of perceived worthiness.

    Things seem so screwed up (pardon my French) with so many people looking to believe the absolute worst of anyone that disagrees with them though… I’d say God is about the only chance we have of healing this nation.

  2. Good morning, Richard, what I love most about this poem is that it stands on the truth there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. I pray your words will open the eyes of believers who have fallen prey to the lie they must follow man, in whatever form that takes. Love in Christ, Julie
