Faith -Article Challenge - How I Found My Faith (Poem)

Updated on May 21, 2016

The Baton of 'Faith' article challenge has been passed on to me by my dear friend Ruby Fuller, known on HubPages (always exploring). I am profoundly honored by this challenge and I will do my best to make Ruby proud.

Faith

Allow your faith to flow Into the stream, on to the river And into the sea To touch each heart Wherever they may beat.

ξ Faith


© By Shyron Shenko

Our country steeped in Faith

Whether it’s in our God(s)

Or in our fellowman

Faith is belief and confidence

And in trust go hand in hand


Americans are brothers and sisters in Faith

Though we fight between each other

When one of us is attacked by outsiders

Against the outsiders with each other we will stand


I believe in God

That Jesus is His only Son

I do not know how or when

My own religious faith begun


Most every Sunday

We walked with Mammaw to church

And she shared her belief and faith

With all six of us


My Grandmother (Mammaw) taught us

She taught us to trust in the Word of God

Trust is believing in Faith and

Faith is our saving Grace


Allow your faith to flow

Into the stream, on to the river

And into the sea

To touch each heart

Wherever they may be



Our God Is An Awesome God

Hallelujah

Passing the Baton!

I am perplexed, there are so many Poets and Authors that I truly admire, I would choose all my favorites. May I choose more than one or two?

This time I want to see what Frank Atanacio can do, I so admire his work. So Frank I hand the Baton to you!


A special note to a special friend

You will know who I am talking about when you hear the story at the beginning of the video below.

Maureen, this is a special for you, I hope you will listen to Faith Hill telling Loretta Lynn her story of how she got her name.

      Au fait, thank you for the comments, I am always happy to hear from you.

      If only people would celebrate Easter for what it is and not for hopping down the bunny trail, and chocolate eggs and bunnies. The way it is remembered today, takes away it meaning.

      Blessings and Hugs

      I hope the weather is nice for you.

      Blessings and Hugs my Dear Friend

      A wonderful poem for Easter. Those who have faith in Jesus Christ will be rewarded.

      I've been thinking Easter wasn't 'til the 15th. Could swear that's what it said when I Googled it for this year. Barely cooler than yesterday.

      Note you're still an 85.

      Hope you're having a good week and looking forward to Easter. Blessings dear friend . .

      Faith carries us through those times like no other can.

      Such a beautiful expression of your belief can serve as a beacon for others.

      God carries us through those dark valleys into the light. And I know that for me that Faith is a insulation against doubt and fear. It keeps me filled with assurance that I am not alone.

      Beautiful Shyron

      Angels are on the way to you ps

      We need faith to simply get up in the morning. I loved the childhood reflection, thanks for sharing. I can't wait to read Frank's perspective, it will be very interesting, this is a good way to see another side of our favourite writers.

      Maria, thank you my sweet friend, I love Michael Bolton's passionate 'Hallelujah'. It also gives me chills and I listen to it often.

      You don't know how much I appreciate and love you also.

      Ruby, thank you for you kind comments, you don't know how much I appreciate you.

      I love Michael Bolton, he sings Hallelujah with such passion, you can't help but feel it.

      Passing the baton was such a delima, Frank is a wonderful writer but so are dozens of our close community. Maybe you would have gotten it had you not been the one who passed it to me.

      God Bless and Hugs right back to you.

      Trust in God is indeed faith in Him. Well expressed as always. Enjoyed the music though I had to go elsewhere to hear it as my computer won't play YouTube anymore. I can think of nothing to add to the wonderful tributes you have already received here. Voted up, BAUI, pinned to AH, posted to FB, and shared on HP.

      Hope you and John are both feeling much better than the last time we talked and that things are getting better and better every day. Blessings to you both . . . TTYS
