My Poetry/Clear Waters

Clear Waters

The waters clear as I stand by the river
I see the reflection of someone long ago
As the storms come in I know I can’t let you go.

Rain pours at times in this life you’ve given
But the shadows fade when my prayers have risen
Your love for me I’ve never new until now
When I see the waters clear, my reflection seems so near.

As time goes on I know you are near
Just seeing the way you help me stand
Just seeing the way you remove the fear
It helps my weakness seem so clear
That without you I am small
But as I take your hand, the walls get knocked down
The waters clear, the reflection I see now,
is you in me, this my Lord helps to make me free.

  1. I have really enjoyied reading your well written article. It looks like you spend a lot of effort and time on your blog. I have bookmarked it and I am looking forward to reading new articles. Keep up the good work!

  2. Betty, it is so wonderful when we catch the revelation and beginning seeing Jesus inside of us. I love the poem, with the river being that mirror–it’s so perfect, since we are washed in the River of His blood and Living Water–and then He is surely within us. Until I fully understood that Jesus lives in me, I had no sense of personal power–now I am strong in His Strength. Thank you, Lord–Praise Your Name!! May He bless you abundantly today, and always. Are you excited for Easter? I can hardly wait!! love, sis Caddo
