CHRISTIAN POEMS AND DEVOTIONALS FOR THE SEARCHING AND WEARY
HOPE POEM, HOPE GONE, FIND HOPE JESUS, I NEED JESUS, COME JESUS

    FINDING HOPE POEM
                   
By Frank E. Henrich 1984

Hope is help,
  In a world full of uncertainty.
Hope is peace
  In troubled waters.

Yet, Christian Hope is more
  Than help in mere existence,
It is a candle
  Burning in the darkness.

In our twenties
  Our Hope lies
In the strength of our bodies
  Which seem eternal.

In our thirties
  Our Hope lies
In our resolve
  Yes! I can do it.

Then come the Advent years,
  Those years of preparation
For a new Hope
  A new candle in the distance.

No longer is the physical body
  A Hope.
No longer are great resolutions
  A Hope.

No longer is stamina
  A trusted resource,
The candlelight of self
  Is not so clear.

Then, what is one to do
  In those Advent years?
Is there another candle,
  A light of Hope upon the horizon?

Yes, it is the Light of Christ.
  It is not dependent upon us.
It stands as a strong beacon,
  A Hope that is a helpful trust.

You say, “I can’t see it!
  I’m looking
But I can’t see it.
  Where, where is this?”

The Light of Christ radiates Hope
  That warms a life with Joy.
It can only be seen
  When light of self is diminished.

During this Advent season
  When we meditate on Christ’s birth,
Let us ask Jesus
  What would please Him?

Could it be that
  Jesus would say to us,
“Search and find my Advent Candle
  That lights a Hope for you?”

Read scriptures: Matt 4:16 & 5:15, Luke 1:78-79

THE WAY OF GOD

I see a flower with all its loveliness
  
I see storm clouds with all their fury
I see a child run to the open arms of a dad
  
I sense the cool taste of water after a run. 

I sense the yearning to know you Lord Jesus
  
From a child this wish has been with me
Yet life with all its injustices drew me away
  
Bathe me now with Your presence so pure.

Let my spirit inwardly know of this union
  
Give me peace amidst the jostles of life
For only when this occurs am I at rest
   And Your spirit permeates outward to others.

ALWAYS TRAVEL THE WAY OF GOD!

    HOPE FOR US IN JESUS

1 John 5:11-21 11 And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 So whoever has God's Son has life; whoever does not have his Son does not have life.

13 I write this to you who believe in the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. 14 And we can be confident that he will listen to us whenever we ask him for anything in line with his will. 15 And if we know he is listening when we make our requests, we can be sure that he will give us what we ask for. 16 If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. 17 Every wrong is sin, but not all sin leads to death.

18 We know that those who have become part of God's family do not make a practice of sinning, for God's Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot get his hands on them. 19 We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the power and control of the evil one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we are in God because we are in his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. 21 Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God's place in your hearts. NLT
