A Christian Poem
and a Watercolor
This Christian poem is a deeply personal response to Psalm 23:4
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."KJV

Although I was timid
and fearful as a child, I lost that fear completely as I discovered who I belonged to.
His perfect love casts out all my many real and imagined fears. David's beloved Psalm, written so many years ago, when he was threatened on every front, is still able to comfort and to make fearless those who would otherwise be oppressed by the smothering power of fear.
I hope that this example of Christian poetry,
combined with the watercolor painting,
will calm your fears
and strengthen your walk with God.
The medium of watercolor worked perfectly for me, with its fluid transparency. Watercolor helps convey a sense of immediacy.The work must be quickly executed to retain its freshness.
Through the Valley
For every sheep
there comes a call
Trust the Shepherd
Take the step
While weak within
Though all grow quickly dim
threats loom tall
One step of trust,
One step is all
Your faith unlocks a mystery
It brings His presence instantly
His staff so fierce, His wrath not small
Demons at His bidding crawl
He thought you fit
Walk bravely through
the path is lit
Take the step that’s bolder still
Fearless now, it is His will
For your Shepherd, it is He
Who owns the hill, and this valley.
