The road to serenity

Hopeless end to endless hope.

A Broken heart to mended soul.

Life of fear to unwavering faith.

My load of pain, He carried away.

From selfishness to service.

Life in limbo to a life of purpose.

Drowning in doubt to confident prayer.

Hiding flaws to laying them bare.

Trusting in luck to Miracles from above.

Lost in the world and found in His relentless love.

God sees me through the eyes of grace,

It’s in his presence that I feel safe.

Turbulent storms to His comfort & peace.

Overflowing tears to relief from grief.

the Taking pleasure in things to delighting in Him.

Carelessly living to awareness of my sins.

Once avoiding the truth – but here I stand

– Liz Coker –


So very briefly, how this poem ministered to me?

I don’t know about you, but this poem takes me back to a popular scripture 2 Corinthians 5:17. When one gives his/her life to Christ. Making the old (with sins, ungodly temperaments, bad habits, the thoughts of doubts, low self-esteem and so on) pass away and making room for the transformed (in the spirit) new you; a new creation.

A new creation, effortlessly loving the Almighty and His Word unconditionally, always at comfort and at peace in His presence.
