POETRY

Since the beautiful, opening lines of the Book of Genesis, God has delighted in sharing His story through poetic language.  And we want to share Christ’s story and our own personal stories via original poetry works too.  If you would like your poetry featured on The JCMultiverse site, please send us a message.  We’d love to have you!

ONE WITH GOD

How can I be

All the things I’d like to be

When I always feel alone

Thought You would be there

To guide me on my way

But it seems that I was wrong

Did You abandon me

Or did I turn away

Sometimes truth is hard to recognize

Will You welcome me again

Into Your waiting arms

To teach me how to share

To bear Your cross again


One with God

Make us one with God

By faith alone

Make us one with God

For no matter where you go

There’s one thing that we know

Our love for Jesus

Makes us one with God


In a world that always seems to close its eyes

To all the suffering and hate

Can it really be explained

In a world that always tears our dreams apart

We never are alone

Even though sometimes it seems we are


One with God

Make us one with God

By faith alone

Make us one with God 

                                                                                          For no matter where you go                                                                                       

There’s one thing that we know

Our love for Jesus

Makes us one with God


Feed my sheep

Don’t be divided

Spread His Word

That’s what we’re called to do

In His house

There are no labels

Touch the world

He is reaching out to you


One with God

Make us one with God

By faith alone

Make us one with God

For no matter where you go

There’s one thing that we know

Our love for Jesus

Makes us one with God

MY RAINBOW

Rainbows

Are so beautiful

The calm

After the storm

Rainbows

Only colors

Yet magical

When they take form

Our lives

Like changing weather

Some sun

Always some rain

But you

Make my life wonderful

Please

Let me explain

You are my rainbow

When the storm

Has taken me down

You bring me up again

You are my rainbow

You are my friend

You shine

Through the clouds above

Come shine on me again

GOD'S GIFT

When God made the flowing waters

Their beauty He gave to you

As the mountains rise to meet the sun

I'll rise to meet you too

If I could witness all creation

What a joy it is to share

For earth is like heaven to me

Because God placed you there

For the reasons for my happiness

There's so much you've helped me through

My life was not God's gift to me

God's gift to me was you

So another year has escaped us

There's still so many more to see

Time has not changed your beauty

It still amazes me

For the rainbow is never changing

The stars will never fade

I'd sacrifice all I have for you

To treasure the joy you made

For the reasons for my happiness

Are found in the little things you do

My life was not God's gift to me

God's gift to me was you

USED TO THINK

I used to think

There was nothing quite as beautiful

As the mountains

Watching all the changes

From the winter to the spring

I used to think

There was nothing quite as peaceful

As the ocean

Sailing with the currents

On a wave so crystal blue

I used to think

There was nothing quite as majestic

As the eagles

Soaring over the canyons

On a tradewind to the skies

But then I saw you

And suddenly I changed my mind

INSPIRATION

My mind often wanders

Whenever I'm lonely

My heart's always searching

For a place to call home

I used to be be happy

Life has so much to offer

New people and places

There's so much to see

So I ask myself daily

When there's so much to give

Just what is the problem

Just what do you need

I need a friend now

Someone I can talk to 

Someone I can share with

Someone I can trust

I need inspiration

A reason for morning

A reason for caring

A reason for love

Where are the seasons

Where is the sunshine

Where are the mountains

Blowing soft in the wind

There's too many changes

We're just so divided

All of this hatred

I just can't understand

It used to be beautiful

The sound of a rainfall

The passing of winter

The promise of spring

I long for the ocean

The sweet sound of silence

I long for your whisper

When the night is so cold

What are we falling

Why are we frightened

Why do the true lovers

Always seem to get burned

I need inspiration

A reason for being

I need to find peace

In this old heart of mine
