Poem: His Voice I Hear

His Voice I Hear

By: Joi Maree Flowers

In those lonely hours of despair
When my soul is burning
And my mind is filled with chaos
And my heart is unsettled

I seek solace through prayer

And in silence I await to hear

His voice

That will speak to me
Before the clock strikes 12

And I will listen
And I will be comforted

Poem: Accordingly

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Understanding that things happen for their specific purpose
And reason
At their assigned time
In their appointed hour


Whether agreed
Whether accepted
Or none of the above

Those things that occur
Not by man's controlling hand

But by one
And Almighty


Who before time
Made those plans

That were written in
The book of Destiny

So for ourselves

We could

Remove self
Banish plans
Practice patience
Embrace faith

As our way
Was never
Meant to be

But His
And will always be


Therefore we must surrender

Poem: Better Love

Better Love

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Better than before
Sweeter than the last taste
Stronger than the grip once held
Purer than the clear blue sea

Is love now

It has come
And is ours
The best of love
