My Walk With Him--By Colan Hiatt--United States

My Walk With Him

As I think of the years before
Christ came into my life
Reflecting back, it seems absurd
How did I deal with grief and strife

But then I recall that blessed day
When I heeded, - "come unto Me"
Life has never been the same
Since from bondage, He set me free

In my daily walk with Him
I have stumbled along the way
But He has been my sword and shield
A beacon light, He does portray

As turmoil rages on every side
And human efforts are rendered nil
His Word and promises, reign supreme
What He has declared, He will fulfill

Colan Hiatt resides in Mt. Airy, NC. with his wife. A retired electronic technician, he has been writing for several years. Most all the poetry, is derived from observing "down-to-earth" events that occur around us. A personal "mini-story" is often associated with the majority of compositions. Usually a metaphor is found with spiritual implications that portray God as the ultimate solution to life's problems. To direct the reader to this "Source", is the desired goal.

  4. Colan: It is not often that I read a faith-based piece that is not preachy. You have succeeded in what we marketeers call feature-benefit selling. Congrats.
