Timothy is a Christian who enjoys creating visual art and writing. He has a B.S. in Psychology.

Looking into God's Word

I love to write whether it be poetry, song lyrics, flash fiction or longer fiction. While I do not consider myself a professional writer I enjoy challenging myself to create. A lot of my inspiration comes from the Bible. I look into God’s Word as often as possible for articles ideas, for story ideas and most of all for inspiration for poetry and song lyrics.

All the poems, but 1, were inspired by different verses in the Bible. I included the Bible verses for those who want to dig deeper into God's Word.

If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

— Romans 10:9

Sing to Him a new song;

Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

— Psalm 33:3

We Can’t Stop Shouting

For far too long We’ve blended in

With this world We’re livin’ in

But now it’s time To stand up again

For what we’re believin’ in

We need to spread the word

Throughout our neighbor hoods

To those who

Haven’t heard

About christ our king


We can’t stop shouting

No we can’t stop shouting

We can’t stop shouting

Tellin’ all the world

Tellin’ them his word


For years we remained silent

While the world became

So violent

Because they have forgotten

What it meant to love the lord


Now the world

Has developed an attitude

About what they think

Is good

That is why we need to

Stand up and light their way.

We can’t stop shouting

No we can’t stop shouting

We can’t stop shouting

Tellin’ all the world

Tellin’ them his word

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made

— Psalm 139:14

A Wondrous Creation

Though I am rich

I am poor

Though I am weak

I am strong


Don’t look like much in your eyes

But in the eyes of God

I am a wondrous creation

a marvelous miracle

a unique individual

with talents

and abilities unlike yours

wholly mine

So

The next time

you feel like

spitting insults my way

calling me names

REMEMBER THIS

We are all the same

To God

His creations

So though I am poor

in your eyes

I am rich

Though

I am weak

in your mind

I am strong

Because God is

MY

Strength and riches


Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

— 2 Corinthians 9:17

Serve the Lord With Gladness

Serve the Lord with gladness

Serve the Lord with gladness

Serve the Lord with gladness

And

Thanksgiving in your heart


How can your heart

be downcast

How can your soul

be forlorn

When you’ve been given

the greatest gift of all

A life reborn


How can your life

be troubled

How can your eyes

be filled with pain

When you’ve been given

the greatest gift of all

A life reborn


Serve the Lord with gladness

Serve the Lord with gladness

Serve the Lord with gladness

And

Thanksgiving in your heart

Just a Little Blue

Another day is over

And I’m a little older

Lately I’ve been feeling blue

Wish I could change it

Maybe rearrange it

Find something new to do

Not that my life is so bad

--all sad

Sometime I'm just to feelin’ low

So don’t expect me to –

--jump up

--shout out

Wear a sunny smile

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,

— 1 Peter 2:2

Crave

Crave

Crave God
Like a newborn
Craves a mother
Like a lion
Craves the hunt

Crave
Crave
Crave God

Don't let your
Heart wander
Don't let your
Heart go astray

Crave God
Like lightning
Craves the storm
Like a flower
Craves the rain

Crave
Crave
Crave God

Like a snowflake
Craves the winter
Like a heart
Craves some love

Crave
Crave
Crave God

Like a hot day
Craves a breeze
Like a beach
Craves a wave

Crave
Crave
Crave God
Don't let your
Heart wander
Don't let your
Heart go astray

Like a kite
Crave the wind
Like a sports fan
Craves a win

Crave

Crave God

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.bs

— Proverbs 18:21

Don't Say It

Don’t say anything

If what you say is unkind

Only speak those words

Which help to bring about peace

Which help to promote true love


Don’t say it, don't say anything unkind


Maybe I should have known

But I let love cloud my mind

It is why I took the grief from you

And all the words so unkind

All the times I thought you’d change

But how you think, is who you are


You got lost in all your thinking

You’re better than those around

Take a good look in the mirror

See the truth, love’s where it’s found


Don’t say anything

If what you say is unkind

Only speak those words

Which help to bring about peace

Which help to promote true love


Don’t say it, don't say anything unkind

When push comes to shove

Only speak those words

Which help to bring about peace

Which help to promote true love

Don’t say it, don't say anything unkind


My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.

— John 10:27

Listen God's Calling


Can you hear God calling

Can you hear his

soft, soft whisper

Listen

There is something peaceful

About

The Lord’s voice

It makes you realize

No matter what

It’s going to be okay

The Lord’s voice

Calls to you to

Slow down

Take it easy

You have time

To enjoy the ride

Some Final Thoughts

I love writing inspirational poetry. Reading God's word and translating what I receive from what I've read through poetry helps me quiet by anxious heart and souls, especially in these tough times.

I hope you enjoy reading these poems as much as I enjoy writing them. Until next time stay safe.

Three Books On Writing Christian Poems and Lyrics

I've included these books in case you would like to learn how to create inspirational writings of your own.

Writing Down Your Soul - is a book which helps you to see yourself as a writer in light of God's Word and the inspiration it gives you.

While this book is technically not a book about songwriting it is a good source for

Writing Worship: How to Craft Heartfelt Songs for the Church - is a book about songwriting but from the perspective of creating worship songs for church services.

Songwriters Playground - is one of my favorites. I have used this book and it's playful exercises to create worship songs as well as my fun and playful lyrics.
