The River

There was once a river that stood on its own,
That was born in a manger whose feet the Earth roamed.

Who grew up in stature, in wisdom, and truth,
Who taught with authority from the days of His youth.

Who astonished great scholars and teachers alike,
Who made many men wonder and even dislike.

At whose name demons tremble and breaks every chain,
Who was royalty in the flesh and sought no earthly gain.

On who men did lie and friends would betray,
Whom on a wooden cross and in a tomb would lay.

Yet, that river rose with great power on the third day,
With the power in His hands to take the stain of sin away.

A river whose waters can cause us to thirst no more,
Who can fill the hearts of those who are spiritually poor.

This river of life flows from the Lamb on the throne,
From the firmament of the heaven to our earthly homes.

Great is the River who brings us eternal life,
That River is Jesus, Our Saviour, Our Christ.

I am an educator, a wife of 24 years, and mother of three beautiful children. I have taught the word of God to all ages and love to share it in creative ways. I've always had a passion for written expression. Over the years, I have documented my personal thoughts and prayers. Poems, devotionals, worship songs, and more have come from my life experiences. Now, I am ready to share them with the hope that lives and hearts will be changed as well as greatly blessed. I am flawed but striving for perfection in Christ. Although I have fallen short of the glory of God, I am forgiven. I am loved with an everlasting love. I am FREE!
