Your Walking Museum

Whew! Lord, what a walking museum
You have written down through the ages.
There is so much bewilderment
Within Your Holy pages.

Whew! Lord, what a walking museum
You have written down through the ages.
There is so much bewilderment
Within Your Holy pages.
Slavery, incest, slaughters,
Complete disobedience of Your law.
Though I read typed and printed paper,
I cringe at what I saw.
Bloody battles, family fights, land wars.
It’s amazing we exist.
The evidence of sin runs rampant
Without You in the midst.
Yet many of those battles are You,
Clearly fighting for us.
You take down Your enemies
And fight for the just.
And then there are times You
Test, discipline, and cleanse.
You help our feeble minds to learn,
And see life through Your lens.
Help me, Lord, to trust You with
My life and Your plans.
Thank You for Your Holy Word,
To help me understand.

Weeping With Jeremiah

gaillovesgodspoetry

A pen so devastated, it’s hard to lift
To write the depth of such a godless drift.
How can one ever turn away
From a God who loves us every day?
The gore, the violence, throwing children into fire.
Worshipping other gods, the soul for hire.
Selling one’s souls for idols or self.
Though God plea with His children Himself,
The eye will not see, and the ear will not hear.
Though warned of desolation, they have no fear.
God gave their fathers land on which they stand,
But they trust more in their own hands.
Now God has given Jeremiah a vision.
He’s to warn the people of God’s just decision.
There will be wrath, destruction, and desolation.
God will punish this Godless nation.
A tear from Jeremiah, a tear from God,
A tear from me to see the almond tree rod.
Turn, People, turn! Return to Him!
Take…

Psalm 23 Keeps Your Promise

gaillovesgodspoetry

Oh how I love Your Psalm 23
And the visual it takes me on.
Just the first 5 lines,
And I’m completely gone.
To know You are Lord,
And that You are mine,
Let’s me know You Shepherd me,
And gives me peace of mind.
I may desire many things,
But I shall not want for needs.
You lay me down in green pastures.
My mind and body are both at ease.
You lead me beside still waters,
So that I am not disturbed by them.
With this gift of beauty and peace,
I am restored again.
Now I can see Your paths for me,
And walk them in Your name.
Though death or evil come my way,
You will lead me just the same.
You fight my battles and my enemies,
And pour favor on my life.
Goodness and mercy follow me,
And Your house becomes my new site.
