Lenten Reflections Through Poetry
As I study God’s word this Lenten season I like to journal, to write poetry and to draw pictures.
Here are 4 short poems that I have written to give me a remembrance of John 1 and 2.
They are a butterfly type of poem with 9 lines, starting with one word, growing each line to 5, then decreasing back to 1.
I would suggest you close your eyes while listening to each poem, except, of course if you are driving.
Lenten Reflections From John 1: 1-34
In the darkness
That all might believe.
“Look the Lamb of God
Come down from Heaven
God’s Chosen One”
Lenten Reflections From John 1:51
Can’t come in
God knew the problem
Sent His Son to earth
Crucified, dead, risen, alive
Heaven’s gates opened
Lenten Reflections From John 2: 1-12
Filled with water
He turned into wine
First of the miraculous signs
Glory of God revealed
His disciples believed
Lenten Reflections From John 2:13-25
Cleansed, coins scattered
Fury of Jesus revealed.
“I will raise it again.”
Raised from the dead
His Body broken
How Do You See God’s Word?
Do you like to see God’s Word? Are you a visual learner?
If so I would like you to join me on my Facebook Group called Word of God Speak Community. Until next time, as you read God’s Word, see what pictures He shows you. Write them down or draw them.

HopeStreamRadio is a perfect blend of news, worship and truth. It is the refreshing antidote to my daily commute.Hanniel from ON
