Out of six, but this was a great poem and so true. We do learn to walk by faith as we progress in life. Mother always the faith and security we soon adapt to know we are loved--my blessings to you, Beth.
P.S... Hallmark sent me an email thinking I should send them the manuscript of A Grain of Wheat. Not sure how all this will turn out. I Will let you know.

    Thank you for reviewing this. I really appreciate it. I hope it works out with Hallmark. That would be wonderful. I would love to see that acted out on television. It is a good one and what a great opportunity.

Faith begins as a seed and through life begins to germinate and bloom. Through many experiences, we glean the truth of what faith means and how it keeps us strong. Your composition reveals the many steps well.

Dear Beth, you are so very right. Faith is developed over time, and with special nurturing the seed that He planted within us, can grow, until it is a part of us.
I think this is an excellent, excellent statement of faith, and I hope everyone who reads it, will understand.

    Thank you Suzanna, I'm pleased you like the poem. I've been surprised that many of the people who have read it seem to agree there is something within all of us that can lead us back to God if we allow it.

This poem has good rhythm and a great beat. It flows and is factual in my opinion. That makes it click with me on a deeper level then your average poem. We are all meant to fill the void we have inside with the creator, and the journey of finding that out (and finding a way to make that happen) is what life is all about. Thank you for posting this.

I loved how you show us the growth of faith. It can start with our parents modeling faith but even if we come from non-believing homes, God still calls us and as you say, it's "and only coming home to Him
will ever fill that need" for the Lord in our souls.
Best wishes in the contest!

Scripture is very clear that the truth of God has been placed inside our hearts. For many, however, it can take a while to accept it. Once that occurs, the joy one feels is enormous, the sense of peace increases, and the feeling of comfort arises because we know that we will never be alone again. Thank you for sharing your faith in this poetic way.

Beautiful photo to illustrate a lovely, lyrical poem of faith in God.

"As we grow older, we need more.
God's spirit tugs our hearts
We strive to find the greater love
that only God imparts."

The above is my favourite stanza.

Well done

Good luck in the contest

Stay safe healthy and blessed

Julia

Lovely poem Beth! It's so true, we have to learn as we go. It took losing my brother to show me the way. I falter, and fall. But we have to keep trying. Blessings and hugs dearest...

Hi Beth, I loved your poem and I'm so happy for you that you have that firm belief within you. I have to say I'm not religious, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy reading your poem. All the best of luck. Ulla:)))

    Thank you Ulla, I do appreciate the review and comments. There is a lot wrong with religion and I don't consider myself religious either. I do believe that everyone of us is a mental, physical, and spiritual being. You may not chose to develop your spiritual side but it is still there.
