Word Perfect


Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet, a light on my path.


For word perfect
The mind explores
Recesses deep in thought
To find, unbind
The inner workings
Of a soul, price bought
By blood, perfected
Lowly cross
Revelation sought
Word made flesh
Dwells among
Those the Word has taught.

Amen!

  1. It is such a sad pity that many do not follow the Word of God. Some don't even believe it. Everyone one of us who believes knows someone else who does not. The best gift we can give them is to pray for them. That they may see and believe in the Word.

    God bless, Martha. And thank you.

    1. Yes, Kim, God's Word is fresh and new, every time we encounter it, even if we've read a verse hundreds of time before. God still speaks to us if we take the time to listen.
