Shout Out to Fellow Poets (SOFP) Entry!

by Grace 10. June 2017 19:50

Hey everyone! Here's the first SOFP submission ever! This poem is by Lizbeth Erazo. (Thanks Lizbeth!) I really enjoyed it, and I hope you do too! Be sure to let her know what you think in the comments!

Old For New

What was torn you mend again
You redesign the tattered thread by thread
You take the broken and destroyed
You rebuild, You make whole

Joy begin to rise
Hope begin to light the dark
Our God exchanges old for new
Dawn has conquered night
Death has lost to life
And now we are exchanging old for new

You turn our flame into a fire
In You we walk in the impossible
We take Your love into the world
We let our light shine, we let it burn

There’s nothing that Your love won’t do
There’s not a mountain faith can’t move
There’s power in the blood
The power of the cross

Now let's hear from you!

Did you enjoy Lizbeth's entry? Would YOU be interested in doing SOFP?

Yes, I loved it! Renewal and restoration from old to new again in Him.

This, a message of love and light, the warmth of the creation of eternal life.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I love that - from old to new.
Feel free to check out her blog - - I don't think she has posted any poetry as of yet, but she has been posting a blog story, one part every few days or so, and it's really good. She's a really good writer!

I like this poem on account of it being about a life renewed by God. Strangely, it reminds me of something which Tolkien said - "We have come from God & inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light." ☺

It also reminds me of the words of my favorite hymn:

"Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great high Priest whose Name is Love
Forever lives and pleads for me."

Anyhow, great poem, Lizbeth Erazo! I enjoyed it!
