Gods World


Christian Poems

God's World
Poet: Edna St. Vincent Millay


O World,
I cannot hold thee
close enough!
Thy winds,
thy wide grey skies!
Thy mists that roll and rise!
Thy woods, this autumn day,
that ache and sag
And all but cry with colour!
That gaunt crag
To crush!
To lift the lean
of that black bluff!
World, World, I cannot get
thee close enough!


Long have I known a glory in
it all,
But never knew I this;
Here such a passion is
As stretcheth me apart. Lord,
I do fear
Thou'st made the world too
beautiful this year.
My soul is all but out of me,
let fall
No burning leaf; prithee,
let no bird call.

Short Quotes

Greg Laurie

Daily, quiet attention to the Word of God . . . even if it is only for a few minutes, will become for me the focal point of everything.

Just as the roots of trees take firmer hold when they are contending with the wind; so faith takes firmer hold when it struggles with adverse appearances.
Robert Murray McCheyne

Sometimes when we get overwhelmed we forget how big God is.
A.W. Tozer

Don't confuse having less with being less, having more with being more. Who you are is far more important than what you have or what you do.
Nicky Gumbel

Instead of running to God as an afterthought, we can start with Him. We are His creation and He knows what we need.
Dr. David Jeremiah
