Blessed Storms

by Belinda van Rensburg


During stormy weather
Clouds seem to lose their glow;
Gathering together
They darken Earth below.
 

The leaden sky explodes;
Rain pelts the ground with force
Threatening to erode
The soil without remorse.
 

Clouds rumble, roil and moan;
Lights split the sky in two;
Earth's creatures hide and groan
Birds bid the air adieu.
 

Though dark clouds hide the sun;
Though they are glum and gray -
Without them we're undone
For they send life our way.
 

They're smiled on by the Son
He formed; sent each of them;
A blessing every one;
A mystery to men.
 

Bringing much needed rain
Enabling life to grow;
Though storms can cause much pain
We need their blessed flow.
 

When storm clouds gather close
And life seems dark and bleak;
When foes attack; oppose
Leaving us battered; weak.
 

Remember that each cloud's
A blessing in disguise -
Sent by God; allowed
To strengthen; make us wise.

Poems About Jesus

The Shepherd King 

by Belinda van Rensburg


 As nighttime cloaked my velvet dream
I heard Him call your name
He said “I Am the Shepherd King;
It was for you I came.
 

It was for you that I was born;
It was for you I cried;
It was for you my flesh was torn;
It was for you I died.
 

I thought of you and gave my breath,
Yes, I want you to know
It was for you I conquered death;
It was for you I rose.”
 

Ensconced within my dream-cocoon
I heard Christ call your name;
I pray that you will choose Him soon;
It was for you He came.

No Other Way

by Belinda van Rensburg


 Life for a life; His Blood was shed -
There was no other way;
As sacrifice Jesus was led
To Golgotha that Day.
 

Crimson flowed from feet and hands;
Thorned crown upon His head,
Yet there are few who understand
Why our Savior bled.
 

Their eyes are closed; they cannot see
That nothing else will do -
Only His Blood can set men free;
Make broken lives brand new.
 

Lord Jesus, You have paid the price
For each and every sin;
Your Blood will without fail suffice
To cleanse us from within.

Children's Poems

Good Enough

by Belinda van Rensburg


God wants me to be myself
For He created me this way,
And since God made me who I am,
Myself I'm quite content to stay.
 

In His eyes I'm good enough -
It matters not what others say;
I need not act as if I'm tough
Or copy other children's ways.
 

God doesn't care if I'm not cool -
If I'm not stronger; thinner;
In His hands I am a tool
To reach out to another sinner.
 

Though I am still young and small
In Jesus Christ I'm strong and tall;
So when people look at me
May it be God's own Son they see.

God is Near
by Belinda van Rensburg

 

God is with us all the time
Making sure we're safe and fine;
Taking care of all our needs
And helping us to do good deeds.
 

In summer heat and winter cold
We always have His hand to hold
And though we're worried, glad or sad
We're daily cared for by our Dad.
 

God is near, in fact He's here
And we don't have to live in fear
Of anything or anyone
When we have faith in God's own Son.

SCRIPTURE VERSES

 ~ My Life Verse ~

  

Psalm 73:23-26

Yet I am always with you;

you hold  me by my right hand.

You guide me with your counsel,

and afterwards you will take me into glory.

Whom have I in heaven but you?

And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

My flesh and my heart may fail,

but God is the strength

of my heart and my portion for ever.

Isaiah 40:28-31


Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
