Poetry With A Mission

...a thought provoking poetical exercise.


What A Fool I'd Be

Amidst troubles in my life, I’ve a God who’s there for me,
One who’ll never let me down, One I trust implicitly.
Though storms may round me rage, and threaten to overwhelm,
I have His precious promise He’ll be standing at the helm.

He’s a God who’s promised much, for much, He can deliver,
As He is the Creator, sustainer, and life-giver.
All His promises He keeps, for a God of truth, is He,
Thus I know He’ll see me through all that lies ahead of me.

He is powerful and strong, He commands and things are done,
He controls every movement of the earth, the moon and sun.
The stars and all the planets are securely held in place
By this same God who breathed life into the human race.

Though He’s the God Almighty, who reigns majestically on high,
His love, all this surpasses, hence why for me He came to die.
The cross that bore His body, symbolizes the degree
That He was prepared to go to for a wretched one like me.

Now that’s a God worth trusting when I’ve problems in my life,
When my very life is threatened, or when in the midst of strife.
Despite what may befall me, He will make it fit His plans,
For my God, my best interests, very clearly understands.

Each day I am reminded that He deeply loves and cares,
For when I daily study, such via His Word He shares.
But also through life’s journey so much evidence I see
That proves these things He shares can be taken seriously.

Oh yes, what a fool I’d be, not to follow faithfully
This great God who’ll let me spend life with Him eternally.
How could I let tribulation, or even threat of death, stop me
From remaining faithful to this One who's always there for me.
