Pain for Peace first in poetry contest

Whatever Comes Against
Whatever comes against you will not bring you down

Overcome all things with God

Eternal Life
Sin and evil is all around us and can be like a cancer inside of us, but ONLY if we let it. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has spread but it will never kill the life inside of me. I thank everyone for their prayers in advance.

Refiner's Fire
Are you asking God why you're going through a trial! This poem may help you find an answer to your question.

My heart will not fear
This poem was inspired by one of my favorite Psalms, Psalm 91. Jesus has all the power in heaven and on earth, in Him I feel perfectly safe.

Lonely, But Never Alone...
