Poetry / Prayers


‘I come to you Jesus
The one who loves my soul
I look to you and pause to wonder.

What path have you trod?
What made it even possible that you should consider me, the guilty one, full of pain and shame, full of sin –
Lost in a wilderness of despair?

It had to be love.

You loved me enough to leave your majestic throne 
Walk the dusty path
Giving all for me
Making it possible for me to be
Set free.

Yes, You did this for me and You call me now to gaze upon You!

So I look to you the beautiful one
and I see
Love and Purity.

There is so much to consider
So much as yet unseen in
My Redeemer
My Lover
My King

And I would know You more.
Yes, I would know You more’.

    Hello Petrina,

    Usually I just see your posts on Facebook, but I decided to take a peek at your website. I am so drawn to your paintings! And now to find you have poems and prayers as part of your blog – I’m a little in awe. You are so talented, and there’s something about your work, both in writing and painting, that just speaks to me.
    Thank you for sharing your view of the world from the Isle of Man.

      That’s so lovely, I’m glad you popped in for a little look around and that you enjoyed the poems. I do feel it’s a bit like exposing ones soul to put them out there but I’m happy to do that if it blesses people. Thank you, Petrina
