Gods Blessings - 5 Poems
Be encouraged and reminded by reading these poems of the many of God's blessings that we all receive each and every day. Sometimes we just have to open our eyes to see Gods blessings in our lives. At times we may feel God has forgotten us however if you
look around you will see that He is with you each and every day. From the sunshine to the rain He provides, from each breath He gives us,
for the people who love us and surround us with- each a blessing of God.
We hope these poems about Gods blessings remind you of this.
Blessings He'll Shower On You
Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2018
What will happen when your time
runs out and all your strength ebbs away?
When all the things on earth obtained have come to the point of decay?
When you cannot rise with the morning sun and
the night seems as long as the day?
When the strength of your youth is no longer your source
and all your plans go astray?
I know the results when you try to achieve the goals that you set long ago,
That you're sure with hard work you could reach for the top,
Yet there's so much in life you don't know.
You trust in your skills; you honour your wealth;
your mind is filled with ideas;
You live at fast pace with no room to make friends;
being idle you call a disease.
But I want to warn you, your time is quite brief,
in a moment it's all whisked away.
Take heed to this warning while you still have time;
this could be your final day!
Someone will claim what you now call your own,
things that consumed all your health.
Where is the gain when you cannot enjoy even one day of your wealth?
All that you have, all that you own, really is not yours to claim -
The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof;
the deed is made out in His name.
Be wary my friend,
prepare for the day,
give unto God what is due;
Give Him your heart, give Him your dreams;
great blessings He'll shower on you.
by Rae Cross
Thanksgiving is a state of mind,
It isn't a feast or a day;
It's the joy you feel within your heart
For blessings God sends your way.
It's the knowledge that God is good,
That His is a boundless supply;
That you need but to ask in faith
To make all your good multiply.
Whenever you' re prompted to praise
As you kneel in the silence to pray —
When joy and love call forth your thanks-
You are proclaiming Thanksgiving Day.
Prayer For God's Blessing
by Author Unknown
I would flood your path with sunshine;
I would fence you from all ill;
I would crown you with all blessings
If I could have my will.
Aye! but human love may err, dear,
And a Power All-Wise is near;
So I only pray, God bless you,
And God keep you through the year.
If You Can't Find Joy
Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2008
If you can't find joy in your daily life, have you walked away from the source?
Are you letting your problems fill up your heart, are you living in daily remorse?
Does your life feel empty, unchallenged and dull?
Is fulfillment not treasure enough?
Do you feel rejected unneeded, dismayed; is your road so lonely and rough?
Are you searching for treasures beyond your reach, for goals you cannot obtain?
Are you placing your trust in the gold of this world - a substance that will not remain?
Have you been persuaded that life is fulfilled when power is in your control?
Are you surrounded by thoughts of success to the point you've forgotten your soul?
Have you not heard that man is but dust and all earthly efforts are vain?
Are you so centered on what you achieve that other's advice you disdain?
What will you do when your plans are fulfilled?
Will you sit back in your pride and your glee?
Will you tell the whole world of what you've achieved and proudly shout,
"World! Look at me!"?
Friend, I must tell you, your works aren't your own,
there's nothing on earth you possess,
You may have titles to deeds and great wealth, things here on earth to caress.
But God is the owner, Creator of all, who allows you this privilege, this joy.
It's here for a moment and gone in a flash, so quickly time comes to destroy.
Lay not up treasures down here on earth, let not this be your concern.
Life in eternity holds your rewards, investments that bring great return.
Give back to God all that is His, not just the things you can spare,
You'll find more fulfillment, more peace in your heart,
when you willingly give what you share.
God will reward you for giving to Him, more than your heart could request;
His shovel is bigger than any sized pails, be ready to be richly blessed.
Does Supply My Needs
by J. I. Cover
Oh Lord to Thee on high
Who does my needs supply,
I raise my song.
Thy mercies full and free
On every hand I see,
Thy tender care for me
To keep from wrong.
I praise Thee that Thy grace
Saves from a fallen race
Who come to Thee.
Thy power can make me whole
And fully save my soul;
Where ceaseless ages roll,
There I may be.
May all who know Thy ways,
All join in songs of praise,
Thy name to own.
Guide us along the way,
That we may never stray,
Till we may praise and pray
Around Thy throne.
