The Center of a Square

Today read about a “square poem”.  I loved it and tried it myself
Made me think about my theology. I felt like playing Sudoku with Jesus!
Here it goes … (it doesn’t quite rhyme … will work on that)
You can read it line by line. The columns repeat the lines.

In             the       beginning   Jesus    created-     with      God.
The    surrendered  faith           is         what       Christ   holds. 

Beginning faith      draws         the       grace       inside    all. 
Jesus           is           the           Center    within      all      Creation!
Created-  what       grace        
within    draws    hearts  together. 
With       Christ     inside,          all           hearts     draw      in. 
God          holds        all          Creation   together   in        Jesus.


Revelation 22:13 
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the first and the last,

the beginning and the end.


About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

  2. Hey Heidi, I enjoy the challenge of Sudoku once in a while but this is so much sweeter! Thank you for the new year reminder to keep Jesus at the Center of all we think, say or do. Totally awesome! ❤️

      Thanks, Kathie, for coming by and encouraging my heart. I do enjoy puzzles every so often. Last night, after the kids were in bed, I sat down and thought of what the Holy Spirit means to me and came up with another box poem (prose). I think you might like it 🙂

    I had the same reaction as Debbie upon reading your poem: Wow–what a challenging format! But our Heidi of Great Poetry Prowess nailed it! Especially love the way “Jesus is the Center–within all creation.”

      “Poetry Prowess“ 🤓 Thank you… you made me smile 🤗… Jesus is worth of our thoughts and contemplation!
      I appreciate you stopping in and thinking with me about Him!
