Poet Uses Verse to Celebrate Lord’s Help in Recovery
New poetry collection inspired after battle with addiction and surrender to God
Los Angeles (PRWEB) August 24, 2012
Poetry to God, Volume 1: Lord Please Hear the Cry (published by Trafford Publishing) by poet Terry Webb presents a collection of verses that draw upon a personal spiritual journey to offer testimony to the redemptive nature of faith.
After years of struggling with his addictions, Webb turned his life over to the care of God and invited Jesus into his heart. God has been in the midst of his deepest struggles and has now restored everything in Webb´s life that was lost in his addiction. His poem, “You´re Never Alone,” recounts God´s assurance of care and protection in even the most difficult of circumstances:
You never cry alone, my child,
For when you cry, I do “¦
Although this life may bring you pain,
My child, just trust in me,
And if you will obey my word,
I’ll give you victory!
Several poems offer praise to God, while in “The Heavens Glory of God” celebrates the beauty of God´s divine creation:
Enveloped in beauty, the silence of night,
Sprinkled with stars in Heaven bright.
In cloudless skies, the shimmering,
The Heavenly stars are rendering.
The glory of God, crisp and clear,
His wondrous glory far, but near.
Let Poetry to God move your heart and soul, and draw closer to the Lord!
