Abram - Gods Promise
Poet: Greta Zwaan, ©2003
Abram, Abram, what have you done?
Remember, God promised to give you a son.
Has He not always been true to His Word?
Was this a message you might not have heard?
Are you still worldly, your trust incomplete?
Because of a need that God couldn't meet?
You gave into Sarai, agreed to her plan;
You let her persuade you, you proved a weak man.
Hagar conceived and gave you a son,
But this child was not God's promised one.
You should have waited, just thought things through;
Been patient and trusting, in God's timing for you.
Many years later the pain is still here,
Ismael and Isaac - that hatred, that fear.
Jews against Arabs, fighting for land,
Heartaches and problems they don't understand.
Abram, Abram, what a burden you bear,
Acting on instinct as if God wasn't there.
Now there is hatred, more than ever before,
Mistrust is rampant and peace is no more.
You were unfaithful, God chose to forgive;
All His compassion allowed you to live.
And not only that, God still blesses your life,
And gave you a son through Sarai, your wife.
Gods' hand's not shortened when man interferes,
Let it be known that each prayer He hears.
Let us learn patience, let us learn trust,
For all that God does is holy and just.
Patience, dear Abram, would have won you the race,
God is sufficient with power and grace.
Yes, He'll forgive you, with love pure and strong,
His presence will bless you if you're where you belong.
Abram, Abram, what a great God you serve,
Rest in His mercy; let your faith never swerve.
Poet: Digby Mackworth Dolben
I asked for Peace -
My sins arose,
And bound me close,
I could not find release.
I asked for Truth -
My doubts came in,
And with their din
They wearied all my youth.
I asked for Love -
My lovers failed,
And griefs assailed
Around, beneath, above.
I asked for Thee -
And Thou didst come
To take me home
Within Thy heart to be.
From The Bible
I tell you, you can pray for anything,
and if you believe that you’ve received it,
it will be yours.
Mark 11:24 (NLT)
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
God is faithful and reliable.
If we confess our sins,
he forgives them and cleanses us
from everything we’ve done wrong.
1 John 1:9 (GW)
And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you.
He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you;
do not fear nor be dismayed.
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NKJV)
I alone know the plans I have for you,
plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster,
plans to bring about the future you hope for.
Jeremiah 29:11 (GNT)
God With Us
by Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020
God has promised to be with us
And He is, to that I can witness
We sometimes think He is not around
But then something happpens that is profound
And we realize He has been with us all along
And we give Him praise with a song.
He has told us not to fear
That we are His children and to Him so dear
We are to put our trust in Him
No matter the situtation that is grim
He never promised challenges would be none
But an external home when life is done.
