“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven.” – Matt. 5:16
These inspirational poems express trust, faith, and commitment, and call upon the reader to explore spirituality and the promise of the Lord. “Life is a journey,” the author writes, “although it may seem; it sometimes may alter your positive self-esteem.”
Simply put, “If we stay on our knees we will not stumble; for God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.”
