Seed of Joy!

Within the soul’s heart

a seed of joy is planted

dying it tales root.

As joy sends out rootlets fibers

cracking. slicing, and digging into

the rock hard stone face of sadness.

Crumbling. crunching, and feasting on

the darkness of depression

sprout forth the seedlings

contentment and gladness.

From the fresh tilled soil

nutrients are leeched out of

anger, envy, and strife,

Thrive the saplings

generosity, unselfishness, and gentleness.

Cut down, uprooted, and turned to compost

is the poison vine’s upshot

hate, rage, and self-ambition.

Budding now the Vine of Grace

Fragrantly flowering is

goodness, self-control. and faithfulness.

Fire from Heaven

consumes the tree of death

the ash of

debauchery and lust

is whisked away in the Holy Wind

Found here is

the  Tree of Life

ripened fruit burst open

showers of sweet nectar of

Peace and Love.

  1. I love this because it makes me feel peace. Thank you it’s very beautiful.

  2. Praise God James for His seed of joy!
    Praise God for His faithfulness in you!
    Thank you for this lovely rendition of His Truth 🙂

  3. Very beautiful and poetic, James. Seems to embody the dying to self, reaping fruits of the Spirit and an eternity with God spent while eating from the tree of life. I liked all the emotions and forces you included in the process. Also I liked your way of expressing the annihilation of evil, sin, and Satan. Powerful poem.

    God bless you always,

  4. very deep. vw

    the spirit of contentment has been a blessing in my life far more than anything else this world could possibly give me – and has made me a far richer man than I could be without it!
