God IsPoems to inspire you and remind you of God's great love for us all.

In my weakness I am strong, for it is not I;
What I have I do not own, even should I try.
Born a pauper, not born free - having no control;
No concept of whom I am, searching in my soul.
Weary of my constant toil, what do I achieve?
Daily it's the same routine; hardships never leave.
Life is puzzling at its best, nothing is secure,
All my efforts seem in vain; trials to endure.
Why I do the things I do I can't understand,
Unseen powers are my source, I'm at their command.
Still small voices in my head, prod me, drive me on:
There's a purpose in your life, hope is never gone.
Remember now, in days of youth, you are not your own;
Tread in paths of righteousness, never walk alone.
All my strength is still minute if God does not bless,
If I prosper, by His grace, then I must confess:
God is sovereign, God is just, I am but of clay,
Daily I rely on Him, He's my hope and stay.
Sometimes the Lord will lead us differently from where we would like to go.
But what we must come to recognize is that the will of God is perfect,
and we should never be afraid of it.
God Is Love

Trembling on my bough of indecision
No way seemed clear and safe to step upon,
I found no answer to my fevered questing
No rack to base my fumbling reasoning on.
And then I heard the soft words of another
That deep within I'd never sensed before,
Saying: God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens every door!
Thus, suddenly I was no longer wary
And taking new found courage from each word
I strode forth finding light to cheer and guide me
And all my fears seemed groundless and absurd,
This then is realization of His wisdom,
His Truth that will abide for evermore,
For God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens ever door!
God wants to make us big enough to admire Him with wonder and delight.

The Sparrow's Fall
Poet: John McLeod, ©
The sparrow's fall
Is seen by God above
For He sees all
For all within His love
Are protected, kept from harm
In sharing of the life-force
The sparrow's fall
Personifies our way
For we, like sparrows, fall
Each earth-bound day;
In truth, believe He cares
Though time grows still,
You pain He quietly shares
And ever will.
Too often we try to use God to change our circumstance,
when God is trying to use our circumstance to change us.
God's In The Business of Healing
Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2008
Are the winds of your life contrary, disturbing your comfort zone?
Are they boisterous, hard and forbearing, do you feel that you travel alone?
You know that the Scripture gives promise that God is aware of all things,
He knows the path you must travel, even the hardships it brings.
When the seas are rough and disturbing and the rowing seems always upstream,
With a world of indifference to curb you, there's always a hope and a dream.
Through trials your faith can be strengthened, the tears that you shed can wipe clean,
The worries, the burdens, the heartaches, the longings the world hasn't seen.
God knows your innermost being, He knows what you need in your life;
Be patient, just wait on His timing, for soon He'll remove all your strife.
It's a matter of trusting, obeying, of letting the Lord have control,
Of being in total submission - your heart, your mind and your soul.
God's in the business of healing, He gives His children His best,
But sometimes the process of learning seems an eternal long test.
Be patient, trust in His wisdom, allow Him the reigns of your heart,
Give heed to His gentle persuasion, just watch as new miracles start.
God's in the business of healing, but teaching is also His route,
Be patient, observe and take notice: He's faithful, on this there's no doubt.
