In His Light

In His Light – a Poem

While we lay

in the hands of the Father

and KNOW that His love for us is TRUE

We can be assured that He has us in safe keeping

and we are free to walk out Christ…

OUT from within

And so with covered eyes

and careful steps

we walk out into the light

feeling finally the warmth without

that we have felt within

-Starla Smith


Walk it out

Yesterday my daughter was feeling upset. I called to her and asked what she was doing. She said “I am Painting my Feelings Out!”

So with that in my medium of Poetry I am going to Write my feelings out…

Walk it out – a poem

Feeling encapsulated

like the walls are drawing in

the relief only comes from walking through

At times the fear and past hurts rise up to take me out

and I hide under the arms of the One who holds me up

Walking into more freedom

is hard when freedom’s trek looks more like scary forest

and lands that no man treads

So I hold His hand and speak words to my own soul

I am ok, I am on my way, this too shall pass

Rest in Him, enjoy the journey, speak the truth in love

Grab on to Faith

Hold on to Love

Dont let go of Hope

and walk it out.


He is come!!

He is come – A poem

An unusual love comes

when we answer the call

of the Spirit who comes up out from within.

An unusual heart

is beating inside

filled with God’s love

to those that are out there.

An unusual mind

filled with His ways

applying the wisdom

of God’s holy place

and all of these things

are living within

to those who can see

it is the kingdom of God

come to earth.
