Walking through the word
Seeing the life Christ lived
Among us He survived
standing in the face of ridicule
Opposed and ostracized
Then lifted to a cross
Walking through the word.
Reading and rereading each verse
Hearing, seeing and experiencing
Knowing He too endured it all
Brings us to source and assurance
To keep walking through the word
And living each day strong.

About this Poem
My writing journey started after years of simply just reading the bible. It was a journey instilled in me by my father. Those simple words of advise he gave me at the age of 10 when I was thirsty to write songs. Following through on his advise inspires my writings today but it also keeps me centered as I recognize the life of Christ as He lived every moment of the human experience and showed us how to love. Walking through the Word is part of the Speak Life Series. A production of Released Expressions.
