The Beatitudes in Poetry

  • A. Who is Poor in Spirit
    Humbly following Jesus lead She takes up her cross Her life is in heaven Her presents on the earth The kingdom of heaven Present on earth
  • B. Blessed are those who mourn
    Comfort is Near, a meditation on Matthew 5:4.
  • C. Who is meek?
    He who stands before kings But Trembles before God, Who makes no promises But is diligent in love,
  • D. Hunger and thirst for righteousness
    In this meditation on Jesus’s words in Matthew 5:6, Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled. I have associated each aspect of the Fruit of the Spirit described by Paul in Galatians 5:22-23 with something delicious. In doing so I hope that I have captured a little bit of what Jesus meant when He said we should hunger and thirst for righteousness.

  • G. Peacemaker
    Become a peacemakerTake up the torch of our saviorBy life, death and resurrectionHe changed enemies to sonsBy presence, humility and hopeMake His peace wherever you go This poem was written after putting together Podcast Meditations Through the Beatitudes.
  • H. Blessed are those who are persecuted
    Have you caught the vision He is greater than your pain
