Encountering God

Capturing the beauty of God's creation
I gaze through pines toward heaven's gate
Is there a place for me?
Fluttering leaves of poplar wave 
somehow sensing I'm nature's friend
I'm grateful for the nonjudgmental
Flowing valley draws me down
toward soothing sea
I seek a gentle soul

Misty beach becomes my path
My new friend, Jesus and I converse
His love for me transcends it all
My bare feet embrace warm sands
holding the imprint expressed
Till mounting waves 
wash over evidence
Clouding remembrance of a walk 
with Him

I despair, retreating to ancient forest
in my mind, resting against redwood
I close my eyes
A gentle voice calls my name
It's Jesus, my Defender
He shields my heart
holding me blameless
Satan's lies, his accusations, 
can no longer hurt me


My book, a must read depiction of the Last Days, is still available in both 
paperback and ebook.  Go to amazon.com or any other online bookseller
to purchase THE CASTING OF CROWNS, by Betsy O Borchardt.
