From My Closet to Yours

personal ponderings from Shelly Wilson


Seduced By Another Voice

Seduced By Another Voice There’s a rage sweeping the nations Particularly the USA. A casualness towards God Almighty Indifference of His ways. This too it happened to David When seduced by the enemy’s voice. Taking a casual census Where pride did cause a great storm. It started as just a little whisper Then spiritual pride […]


There is a God

There is a God There is a God I’ve come to know Whose gripped me from my head to toes Who walks with me with daily bread Who steers me well with whispers said. A God whose heard by those who are His Today He speaks as much as He ever did Yet many may […]


The Honest Heart

There’s the moment when the honest heart Pours out all it’s grief. The anger, pain, and tears For God does honor these. Do understand His heart For He is for honesty And though we tantrum well He starts to mend all things. When the words are religious fluff And seem to be pristine A problem […]



Do you arise to find yourself Surrounded at every pass? Unable to see a way out From the terror of Satan’s wrath? Poor Elisha was yet the same When an army stood on the hill Yet He saw the mighty unseen The Heavenly host that stood still. Dear one, ask the Lord for the eyes […]


The Release

There’s a moment when in prayer That you suddenly realize The Lord has let you go And released you for your flight. When pains of the past bow low Even when they still reside For freedom does now ring And cancels the enemy’s plight. His love has filled the holes And sealed the wounds real […]


The First Rain Drop

Echoes do resound And vibrate in the hills Warring angels roam Waiting for His seal Many now sent out Warnings now proclaimed Few with ears to hear Of coming judgement days. Did Noah grieve of heart For his ridicule? Zealously at work What the Lord said do. Please oh hear me now The day it […]


The Door is Closing

As I was walking today with the Lord I rounded the corner and He allowed me to see a concrete door..much like a floodgate…not a regular door. It was lowering and cutting of the waters that poured behind it. The door was almost closed..then I received this poem. Use what you have been given to […]


The Daughters

It was a beautiful day for a walk today and as I rounded the bend I heard the Lord begin to speak to me. I sat down in the middle of our sweet cemetery to focus..and soon He sent a man in need of love and prayer…I wept for some time at His goodness. He […]


Nevertheless..At Your Word…

I was taken with Luke 5 today as I was preparing for this coming weekend of ministry. My pondering ended up once again on paper in my time with Him. Take some time to go look at this story in The Word.  So many nuggets hidden within..I could go on for some time at all […]
