Faithful Father, Forever Friend (Paperback)
No one escapes without some growing pains. None of us can get through the life on his own.
God knew we would have troubles on our journey.
John 16:33 (NLT) states, "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world."
Though some may believe they are better, no one has come through squeaky clean.
The passage 1 John 1:8 (NLT) says, "If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth."
This is where Jesus comes in. John 10:10 (NIV) says, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
The passage 1 John 1:8 (NLT) states, "If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth."
The poems you will read in Faithful Father, Forever Friend, relate the journey I began sixty-eight years ago. It hasn't always been pretty, but neither has it been without hope.
Psalm 56:8 (NLT) states, "You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book."
Romans 15:18 (NLT) says, "Yet, I dare not boast about anything except what Christ has done through me."
These poems are the story of the hope that lies within me.
The passage 1 Peter 3:15 (NLT) says, "Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it."
My desire, my prayer is that this collection of poems will bring you hope also.
