Biblical Poetry
Early in 2017, I felt prompted by the Lord to start writing Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This is something I've never attempted before, but felt very drawn to it by the Lord. In obedience to Him, I have sensed a whole new realm of God's grace as I have begun to write in this way. I hope you enjoy them.

The Goodness of God
By Ken L. Birks

The goodness of God springs forth to all
Those who respond, experience newness from above
Hearts bound in guilt, shame and self-hatred are now filled with love
With God’s goodness comes new insight and revelation
From hearts wide open, come freedom from the terrors within

The goodness of a God brings refreshing to a starving soul
As repentance takes root, the dryness of the soul gets the boot
Like a mighty rushing wind the soul is cleansed with forgiveness
It gives way to streams of living water pouring out of an abundance
From the beauty of the newness within comes a heart of peace

Like a guardrail, the goodness of God comes with strong security
A stronghold in the day of trouble, anxiety and tension
A newfound stronghold of peace holds firm in the midst of disparity
In the midst of the storms of life, waves of peace wash away all agitation
As hope fills the heart, its anchor holds steady as the storm rages on

The goodness of God brings healing to body, soul and spirit, now revealing
Where there was pain and hurtful wounds and scars, now healing
Where sickness and disease existed, now comes faith and healing for all
Where there was destruction, now comes redemption from the fall
His mercy is great to all who call on Him as He comes with healing in His wings
Oh that men and women everywhere would give thanks for His goodness to all
