This message is a thank you for the encouraging thoughts and feedback on this poetry blog. I’ve not posted any of them, though, since it’s my inclination that it might be good for readers to have a place to come to where they can just quietly reflect upon the scriptures and anything that might uplift from a poem’s message. Jesus went away to a quiet place at times to rest and pray–may this be a bit like such a place for you to also do that on any given day.
“And after He had sent the multitudes away, He went up to the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.” Matthew 14:23
“Then Jesus said, ‘Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.’….”
Mark 6:31 (NLT)
“And He came out and proceeded, as was His custom, to the Mount of Olives….”
“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah”
Psalm 46:10-11 (NKJV)
