Three Little Twigs

Three Little Twigs

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Three Little Twigs

 

Three little twigs growing side by side,

Waiting for the much needed rain to reside.

Their soil, hard and dry,

A thirst made them cry.

Each day they would pray

For refreshing rain.

Feeling feeble and weak,

Three little twigs shared one need.

“Where is God?” asked the first little twig.

“’Has he forgot?” asked the second little twig.

“He is working on us, you will see.” said the third little twig,

“He is forming us… all three.”

As the months passed,

Doubts began to attack.

For the rain still delayed.

Three little twigs in dismay.

Wasting away in the dirt,

The third little twig kept alert.

For his two twig friends needed him,

As his faith stemmed.

They all began to pray

And all their worries went away.

Then, before they knew,

The three little twigs grew.

And soon they realized…

Bursting with pride…

They had become one vine

As their strength they did find.

For gathering in Jesus’s Name,

Three little twigs found their way.

A amazing story written in the poem dear Melinda.
"They had become one vine
As their strength they did find.
For gathering in Jesus’s Name,
Three little twigs found their way."
I liked the above ending. Good when we find our proper place. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome Melinda.
Fellowship is a important part of maintaining faith. People were created to be with people only then can the love of Christ shine through us and others freely. I like what you have to say here.
