I think it is a fantastic poem. Any platform is a sounding board for such a poem as this. It seems to talk of God's presence just when you need Him most. The world should know this. To me poetry is a free expression of your thoughts, ideas, inspirations and dreams (positive or negative). Very uplifting. Thanks

Hi Dean, I too, was pleasantly surprised to see your name in this category. This is a wonderful poem, very well done. I am new to FanStory and I am enjoying meeting so many Christians in this writing forum. God has dusted me off and is using me for another round to proclaim His glory in my old age. It's quite exciting. Thanks so much for this amazing, uplifting poem.
All my best,
Sally

I just read this to my daughter...it brought her to tears ( me too) I don't have the words to describe how deeply I feel your words. I have known complete desperation.... but that's another story. But, I can say.." I am a child of God."...I'd say more..but my words are just jumbling up inside.

    What you did manage to say was wonderful, Susan, and more than enough.
    Once again, this poem received many lovely comments from those who read it but was completely ignored and overlooked by the Committee. It's one of my highest rated poems yet didn't so much as garner an honorable mention in the site sponsored Faith Contest.
    It kinda makes you wonder who's voting on these things, doesn't it?
    Well, you liked it and that means much more to me than any ribbon could ever mean.
    Thanks for your comments.
    ~Dean

reply by Susanjohn on 10-Aug-2018
    You know Dean, I don't understand it all here too. I've had to change my expectations here. Not everyone is kind or plays fair or follows the rules.. FS life is no different then real life. That has been difficult for me..as I always see the good in people...and yet I know, just how cruel life can be.
    So I look for those little sparks of joy and soak them up. I appreciate more my friends here...I have the privilege to read some up the most amazing poetry and such. Some pretty, cute, or funny, others serious, heartfelt, longing or whatever it may be...but it is always an honor. But then, there are poets such as yourself, that write with such emotion and conviction... That I just sit back here in complete awe and wonder. Your words of faith and salvation reminding me again that there is always hope.We are just FS friends here...there is no way you could have known about the difficult day I had yesterday. It was late, when I decided to read here and came across your poem. What it meant to me? It meant I stopped crying ( after reading your poem of course) It meant God has a plan,It meant everything will be ok, It meant fear can be contained, It meant I hugged my daughter so tight and no matter what she has to face... we will be ok. It meant God spoke to me through your poetry. I got my spark of joy yesterday.

    We really never know what impact he things we write will have on others, Susan.
    There is nothing on Earth that pleases me more than to have someone tell me something I've written has helped to inspire them, touched their heart, or made them feel better in some way.
    That, to me, is worth far more than any contest.
    I hope you and your daughter have a wonderful weekend.
    Thank you for making my week special.

Well, I don't know where to start

So many things hit me when i read this poem and were confirmed after reading your notes
It was quite disquieting to read the second stanza.It also stresses the point that things are not always what theyseem
You are right.One can not shove our faith down the throat of others anywhere. Thanks for telling me about this poem.

    I almost became an ordained minister, WriterCatherine, and even went to school to become one.
    But God had other plans for me and made it known that preaching was not to be my calling.
    I began writing and publishing stories and poetry instead.
    Thanks again for taking an interest in my work.
    It is appreciated.
    ~Dean

    I hope your plans are successful and that it helps others as well.

    Thank you, Dean. I enjoy writing and write for the love of what I am writing about, as well as unlocking knowledge in myself.

Hi Dean,
Wow! An amazing poem of power, enlightenment, and
forgiveness for the weaknesses of self, and others.
It is wonderful to see you are able to define who you are,
the gifts you have received from God and use your talents to perfection.
I am also setting past demons free and walking a path to release using my God-given gift to write. Finally I'm feeling free to be me -past warts and all.
Abuse and neglect as a child has kept me captive for most of my life-God set me free.
******
:-) Shirley

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, Shirley.
    I rarely write about my faith here, but decided to enter the site's Spiritual Poetry Contest.
    And although I didn't place at all, I'm still very glad that I did.
    Thanks again, and enjoy your weekend.

Dean,
Your heartfelt poem is very touching. I think that many more people could hear His voice if they would simply listen. I do believe your work is ordained - how else could you explain your triumphs? Not to set aside your talent, but to acknowledge He that it came from, I applaud you.

Thank you for your willingness to share such a personal moment,
~patty~

    I fully realize that any talents I may possess come exclusively from God, the Father, Mustangpatty.
    Even with my darker poetry I try to include some sort of moral message most times.
    People can be preached to without them even knowing they're being preached to.
    It's all in the presentation, and I consider this my "calling", of sorts.
    But for this poem, I bared all concerning my faith.
    I rarely write about my religious preferences on FanStory as there is such a diversified group of people, all who have the right to worship as they see fit, and not all of them Christians.
    We are called by God to love our neighbor as we would ourselves, and I believe that means Hebrews, Muslims, Buddhists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and everything in between...within reason, of course.
    Thanks you for digging through the FanStory slush pile to find this.
    Your six stars is just the icing on an already sweet review.
    God bless...
    ~Dean

Jesus suffered and died so we could live and be saved. His glorious mercy and love for us have no end. In him, we are safe when days go dark in sorrow. He consoles us and gives us hope for better and brighter tomorrow. No matter what you write it is your own unique talent and no one has the right to judge you. Well done Dean, Ella
