PEACE IN THE CHAOS

IMG_1669

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The air chokes with death and the smells of it.

Deep in the bowels of the earth, the demons dance for joy,

Hatred, twisted minds,

Overtly wounded souls disperse the winds of time,

Testing of integrity,

Questioning,

Doubting,

Past sins,

Guilt,

Repentance,

Reputations at risk,

Life is filled with this,

The ugliness of sin and the greatest liar ever,

Breath is snuffed out like a waning candle,

In an instant and without warning,

This is our reality,

Yet within that reality is small glimmer of hope,

A tiny fracture of light in the distance,

A light that gains strength as you draw near it,

A brilliance that never dies,

Hope remains in tact,

It is our God,

Who never changes,

Though the world is slowly being devoured by evil,

Though it seems impossible to understand,

Though nothing is sacred anymore,

Though Satan seems to have the upper hand,

Even when life takes a back seat to death,

We must hang on to that glowing ember,

It is the only beacon in a blackened world,

For without it we will be swallowed up,

Trust in God, not man.

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.
