ACTION ADVENTURE OF FAITH
Zooming with faith wings
toward his scheduled biblical adventures
surpassing so-called super heroes’ feats...
my special child today leaves his wheel chair
as he takes his flight
for heavenly quests
with prophet Elijah’s chariot of fire!
His eyes behold great miracle in its active mode
along God’s omnipotence displayed…
such is the creation of the universe with all its elements
through the Almighty’s potent words
yet the best is the bringing to life of the first man, Adam
and the first woman, Eve with the Creator’s very hands
culminating with the first-ever wedding in the Garden of Eden.
Then, my son dashes to his favorite fighting arena
for a close view, defying his spastic epilepsy’s seizure
to watch the replay of David and Goliath match…
oh, how he claps with glee as he sees his champion
first praying to the Lord for help
and then swirling his sling
to defeat the giant, with a smashing fall.
Placing the Bible story book in his bed’s nook
my son nudges me for tomorrow’s bout
challenging my sweet patience along story-telling prowess
to make alive so vividly great events recorded in the Scriptures
for his delight which is likewise my soul empowerment:
acting out genuine faith in the strength* of Christ
by serving and reaching-out with love and joy.
Psalm 71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
