Veiled and Clouded


Artist: Heidi Brummer

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”
Romans 5:1 (NKJV)

Empty me Lord,
my mind betrays
filled with thoughts
for intended delays

Empty me Lord,
of the veil of night
that blocks out light
and defers my sight

Empty me Lord,
of this mind so clouded
in skies of gray
seeking is shrouded

Empty me Lord
of barricaded stream
blocking wisdom
cancel this erratic dream

For faith alone shall
bear enough reason
to fill this heart-
mind held with treason

And justly I walk
to see Your eyes
by this faith alone
discard disguise

and peace shall come
evident in certain hour
for by my faith
I rest in Your power.

  1. Rick, I have so often wanted to make a comment, but after reading your poetry have been left without words. Your writing has been a great blessing to me and I am sure to many others. May the Lord always fill your heart to over flowing with His love as you share His blessings with the world, Amen.


    • You have no idea the impact your comment has on me. It was this poem that left me feeling inadequate as a writer. The enemy was at my heels.

      The Lord through you and others has been a real blessing.

      God bless you
