When Kings Go Forth to Battle
Derived from 2 Samuel 11:1. Truly, God will never leave nor forsake his own (Hebrews 13:5).

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
"And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." - 1 Corinthians 13:13

For I Am Persuaded
Putting Romans 8:38-39 to rhyme.

The Symphony of Sadness finalist in poetry contest
This is a sonnet I wrote during a time of much grief. It likens the soundtrack of mourning to a beautiful symphony and demonstrates there is much we can learn in grief which we would not be able to under happier conditions. See Ecclesiastes 1:18.

A Covenant with Mine Eyes
James 1:12: "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him."

Uncertain Riches
This poem is addressed to those who trust in uncertain riches (1 Timothy 6:17) rather than God.

Semper Idem
I wrote this poem in a time of great sorrow. It gave me much comfort to know that, although grief and change are inescapable, I may always find consolation in the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

A Christian's Epitaph
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

The Lord Is Gracious
1 Peter 2:3 reads, "If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious." By God's grace, I have tasted that the Lord is gracious, and wrote this poem to reiterate "That, in the course of justice, none of us Should see salvation" (The Merchant of Venice).
