Bluebirds and Faith by M. Gail Grant is a heartwarming collection of poetry that reminds us of God's love for us all and His never-ending guidance. Throughout our lives, we can fall victim to all manner of dark emotions such as losing a loved one, painful experiences, grief and depression. The compilation highlights the importance of placing your trust in God and, in doing so, He will steer you on the path that only serves your highest good. Grant shares her innermost feelings throughout the grieving process of her beloved father. We are made aware of the natural cycle of life, the miracles that surround us throughout nature, and the visual messages of guidance we receive from God. Grant also shines a comforting light on Heaven and Earth and why our loved ones are never far away even when their physical bodies are no longer with us. Why are we led into temptation and indulge in sinful behaviour and how does God view us when we fall off the path of righteousness? Grant's inspiring poetry will bring comfort and peace during your most challenging times and offer hope that you are not alone. God's love is always there; you simply need to accept it.
Bluebirds and Faith by M. Gail Grant is such an uplifting collection that will warm your heart and give you the courage to continue in times of grief, confusion and challenges. Many of the poems reminded me of inspirational, spiritual affirmations that you could refer to each day, especially when you are facing a form of difficulty in your life. I found the references to sinful behaviour and how God is always willing to offer forgiveness and loving guidance really encouraging. In Devil's Game, we are warned of the pleasure Satan gains from our misery and sadness; 'Numbness and pain are part of his game. Enjoyment he seeks for the misery he reaps.' I found each poem delivered such a powerful message that will heighten your self-awareness and bring you clarity when you have to face a painful obstacle. In Oneness, we are shown the importance of taking time to quieten the mind because in doing so, God will give you the answers you seek. My absolute favourite poem and the one that most resonated with me was Merciful God; the interaction between God and the tormented woman brought a tear to my eye. In a world filled with pain, chaos and uncertainty, Bluebirds and Faith will bring you a daily dose of positive assurance that God's love is eternal.
