The tempestuous waters pushed up from the earth and gushed forth,

The skies opened at the direction of God’s voice and poured upon a once rainless earth,

Cutting a path of destruction – severing trees – washing clean all the ugliness –

Only the faithful remained – a family of eight survived along with two of every species,

The rage of God could be tested no more,

But even in His anger, He created beauty from destruction,

The sound of His voice carved canyons out of granite,

Waters laid to rest in  lakes and rivers,

Mountains laid low as valleys rose up to meet them,

When the deluge subsided, the Master Architect had once again created a new world,

His work could not be destroyed,

His love endures forever,

Man’s disobedience continues to corrupt the world today,

Did we learn nothing from the past?


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.

  1. I love this painting! It certainly captures the power and movement of water… and your beautiful poem accentuates that by tying it to the worldwide flood. Extraordinary post. ❤
