Verses For Easter – Week 1


With Easter just one month away, I thought to post one poem for each of these four weeks. While devotional writing walks with us step by step in the wilderness, poetry skips over the sea connecting unexpected wavetops. I pray that a few of these wave-tops will be a blessing to some.

Seven Loaves of the Bread of Life

He took the seven loaves and the fish and having given thanks 
He broke them and gave them to the disciples 
and the disciples gave them to the crowds.  Matthew 15:36 ESV

Monday’s loaf was when the angels sang
And shepherds knelt and the Heavens rang

On Tuesday Mary dedicated Him
In the temple like a lamb who was without sin

At the Jordan On Wednesday Jesus was baptized
And the dove descended to the bread of life

Thursday’s loaf was when He broke the bread
And He blessed the cup and He bowed His head

Good Friday’s Bread was given for us
And His blood poured down the rough rugged cross

Saturday’s silence was the bread of sorrows
As He lay in the tomb waiting for tomorrow

Then on Sunday’s dawn came the Living Bread
For all who believe He rose up from the dead!

    • Thanks for reading and I love the thought of cheering the resurrection. In Charity Gayle’s song” The Blood Applied,” when we get to the part where it says “He walked right out again” we actually do get some cheering mixed in with the singing. If you haven’t heard it yet give it a listen. Blessings

      • I’ve heard recordings like that, and I love them. (If we can yell and cheer when someone throws a ball through a hoop, can’t we at LEAST do that when the Son of God DEFEATS DEATH, FOR US?!) So far, at my Baptist church full of seminary students, I’m the only one.
