MIGHTY FORTRESS

ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

A fortress carved from stone, stands rigidly against raging waters,

A refuge from the relentless waves threatening to intrude,

God alone has created that place,

Cut through the massive rock with His finger,

Each pebble blasted away with the breath of His nostrils,

A perfect defense from the seas of torment that infests my life,

My enemies pursuit and cover me with fear ,

I feel I will drown in the great expanse,

When it seems the water will overtake and the enemy has won,

He plucks me from the tempest and places me in the pinions of His wings,

God is my rock and my salvation,

I have nothing to fear.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    This reminds me of this beautiful hymn:
    A mighty Fortress is our God,
    A Bulwark never failing;
    Our Helper He amid the flood
    Of mortal ills prevailing
    😇❤🎶
