Sketch - Poem by Buxton Shippy

The storm, fierce and unrelenting
Still He slept in the midst of its rage.
Terrified, they begged Him:
He spoke and the storm obeyed.

She was scorned
Because of her illness
Yet she did not stop believing;
Touched His garment
And received her healing.

Although guilty of many trespasses,
He forgives and redeems.
Although death deserving,
He gives life everlasting.
Even though we hate,
His love unyielding.

    Yes, there are people who believe that what you tell here can happen to any body. The power of healing has truth according to some persons, and who is to doubt this. There are many things we have no real knowledge of in the world.

    I like what you have done with this. A good take on that you talk about this is.

    keep it up! (Report) Reply
