30 Pieces of Silver

Who knew 30 pieces of silver would open the door to our redemption - the betrayal of a friend would bring salvation to all mankind - 30 pieces of silver such a small amount it seems - but significant  in the plan of God - the cross of Calvary carried by the Son of God - for the sins of mankind - 30 pieces of silver for a Savior who is worth so much more - the God of the universe, heaven and earth - the Creator who saw our need and sent Jesus - born of a virgin - Holy and Righteous - the only one who could become our sacrifice -

Worthy is the Lamb!

On an old rugged cross - He was slain - but arose again three days later - in glorious power and authority- majesty and honor - in resurrection power - for Him and His  faithful ones - 30 pieces of silver - the price given to a disciple - whom He trusted - but knew that he would be the one - who opened the door to our redemption - On the cross Jesus said Father, forgive them for they know not what they do - what satan meant for evil - brought the greater good - a more excellent way for us all - for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords to impart His spirit in our hearts - so that we can live with Him forever - in spite of

 30 pieces of silver!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
