Just A Glimmer

With just a glimmer of strength you could stop the raging sea.
With just a glimmer of grace you could set the captives free.
With just a glimmer of hope you could clear a stormy sky.
With just a glimmer of light you could make a rainbow in the night.
With just a glimmer of faith you could heal a world of scars.
With just a glimmer of love you could build a bridge between two hearts.
With just a glimmer of truth you could open up people's eyes accross the land.
With just a glimmer of compassion the whole world could reach out a helping hand.
With just a glimmer of forgiveness you could turn a war into peace.
With just a glimmer of God all mankind would fall down to his knees.

  2. So beautiful and inspiring, Carrie.

    my imperfect

  4. What a beautiful poem and message!
    i believe the glimmers always there but somrtimes blocked out by negatve forces.
    we are given the circumstances to practice seeing the glimmer when the little things add up, so that is what i do and it so helps with the bigger ones when they happen <3

  5. This is beautiful. I want more faith!

  6. This really is beautiful, and inspiring. And well-timed for me since today I was just thinking about how easy it is to smudge something shiny and how hard it is to make it shine again. But you're right that all it takes is a glimmer of shine to do a lot of awesomeness.

  7. Very cool, I sat here reading and saying "uhhhm, how? How could a glimmer do any of that?" Until the last line put it all into perspective. Ooh, and the picture was a perfect illustration.

  8. God's power never ceases to amaze me -- what a wonderful way you have of putting that in perspective.

  9. A beautiful sampling of what a glimmer of God can do for people and the world...many blessings Carrie..bkm

  10. This is great. I like to think of God as very glimmering.

  11. Just a glimmer of what we're capable of in Him. Yes.

  12. oh that last line especially... that we might all catch this glimmer and be brought to your knees. beautiful, dear carrie.

  13. Dear Carrie,

    Just the way I feel today. You are truly the Hope Whisperer!

  14. Just an inch of surrender lets the ocean of that gleam in. Very sweet poem. - Brendan

  15. Your last line is something I think about daily, (if only,) I wonder what this planet would look like if we all just had a glimmer of God in our lives.

  16. Thank you all so much for stopping by and taking the time to read it....i have started working at a new location and have a lot less time to get on the computer....so you will have to forgive me for not getting around too quickly to read everyone's writing...i will get there it just may take a while....hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! :-)
