The Promise

Post by Tom Watson » Wed Feb 20, 2008 2:49 pm

What are the things that leave you so positive?
First is having a creative God in which to believe,
And His word in the bible as a reference
To the means to find peace and serenity
Through a faith that goes far beyond a dream,
Enabling you to know, anything you try, you may fulfill.

Also there are the things that fulfill
Your heart and remove negatives, leaving only the positive;
Such as when you find the answer to a dream
That goes so much farther than you could believe,
Seeing the calm wonder of a child’s sleeping serenity,
Or holding the paw of a dog for whom you are love’s only reference.

To what does your heart make reference
When seeking a way to fulfill
A need to find some peace and serenity
After a day from which leaked all that was positive?
It looks toward the roots of what you believe,
In the reality of your many gifts, not within a dream.

You cannot find substance within a dream,
For there is nothing but wispy shadows in formless reference.
Only within what you firmly believe
Will that be found which will fulfill
The need to hold onto things that are positive,
When the world wishes to attack your serenity.

For you, does the sky hold a special serenity
As you watch the blue, patched with cloud pillows for your dream?
Or does the whisper of rain on the roof give positive
Feelings on days you need reference
To the glory of creation and grace to fulfill,
As you cherish a faith beyond what you simply believe?

Beyond all things, I would want to believe
That the joy and relaxing serenity
Of given and received love will always fulfill
That need of reality and my deepest dream…
A final peace and joy where He has made reference…
A place near His throne, where no negative darkens the Light, so positive.

The grandchild’s smile, or pet’s positive wag are positive paths to serenity
While your faith tells what to believe…that which is not just a dream,
But a guide, or reference point, to His promise which He wishes to fulfill.
