Devotional Poetry, Looking out my Window, Biblical Poems

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.


Looking Out My Window

By Ken L. Birks

Looking out my window I see the wonders of God.
I see the sunrise with the expectations of a new day.
What is it that this day will bring that will wrap me in the arms of His love?
As the sun rises, my eyes are blinded by its brightness.
In the eternal realm, my eyes rise to gaze upon His beauty that is evident to all.
I await new revelation and insight that comes from the awakening of a new day.
Looking out my window, I feel the warmth of the sun, so bright.

I see the squirrels playing joyfully with no thought or care of fright.

I see the hand of God in the beauty of His created ones.

They run and play with with no concern as the Father cares for them.

He cares for them just as He does for the sparrows who fly so freely in flight.

I sense the Father's faithfulness who cares and delights in us,

more than the squirrels who play joyfully and the birds who fly from tree to tree, freely.

 

Looking out my window I see the sadness on faces of those who pass along the way.

I see the homeless person who is wondering where he will sleep tonight.

As the sun begins to fade, it gives way to darkness and the cold that comes with a bite.

I pray that He who is the provider of all, supplys what is needed as the sun fades away.

As He provides for the birds of the air and the squirrels who play so freely, so I pray.

 

Looking out my window I see young mothers with their children as they joyfully stroll by.

They rejoice in the miracles that have come forth from their lives as they sing a lullaby.

They cast their gaze upon the beauty of these little ones with hearts filled with wonder.

They see God's faithfulness filling their cups with gratefulness while others slumber.

They take note of the beauty and wonder of God that is seen by all who take notice.

 

Looking out my window, stray cats take residence on my porch basking in the sunlight.

As they sleep contentedly, I notice they're well fed though they've no home.

I then realize the neighborhood is their home as they disappear into the night.

I give thanks to the Father above who seems to care for the insignificance of a stray cat.

I am aware of how much more valuable and significant I am in my Fathet’s sight.

 

Looking out my window, my heart is filled with gratitude, praise and amazement.

I see the handiwork of my Father in heaven with all that He has made for our enjoyment.

He continually looks with care and concern over all that He has conceived.

Faith arises in my heart as I sense His love washing over me with all that He's created.

My heart is full as I begin a new day wrapped in the arms of His tender love and care.
