Biblical Poetry
Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This poem expresses how God intially draws us unto Himself and plants our feet on the path of righteousness and what it means to unlock the keys to going further in our walk with Him.

Changing Our Perspective
By Ken L. Birks

Weakened by the circumstances of life, We cry in desperation.
Broken and shattered without hope, we cry out in frustration.
Caught in a web of self-pity and misery, we complain, giving into strife.
Where does help come from, our spirits cry out in exasperation.
Where are Your precious promises of all things that pertain unto life?

In the stillness of the moment He whispers, “I respond to faith not pity.
Allow My Spirit and Word to change your perspective from moaning.”
We discover, it is the Word that gives life, not our commiserating.
As we acknowledge Him in all our ways, our paths will be revealed.
As His Spirit gives life, He gives wind to our sails as we yield.

As perspective begins to change, strength begins to pour through.
Vessels are filled with fresh wind as we give heed to His Spirit anew.
With obedience to His Word and Spirit comes transformation foretold.
Mounting up on the wings of an eagle, supernatural strength takes hold.
The weariness that once gripped the soul disappears into the night.

As we allow the wind of God to take us to places unknown, faith erupts
We now see beyond our circumstances with strength that interrupts.
Flowing towards us in the distance we see the blessings of the Father.
With abundance in sight and fervency rising within, we rush forward.
As we take pleasure in Him, we no longer cry out to be heard.

As His precious promises take hold, we give thanks to Him above.
As we trust in Him, we learn to be content in whatever state thereof.
His presence continually gives us the strength to move onward.
His grace is sufficient in all circumstances as we lean into Him.
What a difference a change in perspective makes when filled to the brim.
