The Tears of a Lion!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Bernetha F. Wise


The tears of a Lion shed not because He was not strong - but shed for the wrong - of a kingdom He wants to save - the home of the free and the brave - The tears of a lion whose heart is broken for a lost and dying world - the words left unspoken of how much He loves one and all - for they would not listen - to the call of salvation - the tears of a Lion for all who reject the Son of God - who  came in flesh as a babe - became a man who shed His blood and carried the cross - to point the way to heaven’s door - giving all who seek  eternal life  - and so much more - the tears of a Lion will dissipate when those who have eyes to see will recognize - it is Jesus,  the Lion of Judah, our Redeemer  strong and powerful, great and mighty - who stands at the door of your heart and knocks

Waiting waiting, waiting - and asks will you let me in?

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...
