There Will Be Change

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)

Like a breath of mountain rain 
Like birdsong in the trees
Like the phases of the moon
And waves upon the sea

There will be change.

Like thunder's muffled booming
Like a softly sinking sun
Like prairie grasses swaying
And my daughter's morning hugs

There will be change. 

Like fresh-ground coffee brewing
Like someone lullabying
Like spreading rings of water
And a single eagle flying

There will be change

Like a seedling in good soil 
Like a wise and ready bride
Like the shining of a lantern
And the pruning of a vine

There will be change

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, 
the new creation has come: 
The old has gone, 
The new is here!  

There will be change

Linking with 5-Minute Friday


  1. How refreshing this is. Thank you

    1. I always think of the passage from Isaiah - Come, all you who are thirsty... - and the poem really came from that idea. That passage refreshes me; I'm glad it came through in the poem this morning. Your comment means a lot to me; thanks for visiting.

  2. My favorite kind of change is the kind that Jesus provides. Great post!

    1. Amen! It's my favorite kind of change, too! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Wow, love the poetry. What a beautiful gift you have!

    Visiting from FMF.

    1. Thank you, LeeAnn. I don't go to rhyming poetry often, but this morning I felt obligated to change things up :) I appreciate your encouraging words.


I know we probably haven't met in person, but I believe that the sharing of our ideas and thoughts, sometimes our hearts and souls, makes us more than strangers. I would like to say friends. Thank you for taking the time to contribute to my little space - I appreciate you.
