If you’re looking for something to do while in lockdown or stay at home orders, try reading the Bible or writing poems, or both….you may find it quite rewarding….I do.
An Elfchen Poem is a poem which contains only eleven words and is therefore a very short poem. The first line has one word, the secind line has two words, the third line has three words, the fourth line has four words and the fifth line has one word.
Throne of grace
We will obtain mercy;
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:14-16 BibleGateway.com
Who Helps Us:
Jesus is our High Priest, He is the one who knows all our weaknesses, and He is able to forgive us and to help us in our time of need. So it’s good to give everything to the Lord through prayer.
Powerful and sharp
Discern thoughts of heart;
The Word Discovers Our Condition
11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
