We Have Yet To Understand

Christmas falls like snow in the air
On a sunny and warm day.
Things are as expected,
God will have His way.
He needs no permission of the calendar,
Nor direction from the sun.
He knows how to do mysterious wonders.
He smiles for the fun.
The air turns cold as night arrives,
And He blankets the earth with snow.
He loves the delight in the child’s eye.
He creates a tender glow.
We recognize Your power, Lord.
Our seasons are in Your hand.
For everything we think we know,
We have yet to understand.

Omni Love

gaillovesgodspoetry

My world may fall apart
And all that lives within it,
But I know that You’re in control
Every minute.
So much may come at me.
So much may threaten my day.
But I know You’re very aware
Of what comes my way.
So much loss in health and life,
And loved ones gone home.
But I know You’re always with me,
And never leave me alone.
Challenges, losses, and illnesses,
Just a few of my earthly foes.
Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent.
Just a few reasons why I love You so.

For You

gaillovesgodspoetry

For you I walk away
From all that interferes
With You trying to comfort me,
And taking away my fears.
For You I lay aside
All that tries to compete.
You alone
Make my heart complete.
For You I reevaluate
All that’s dear to me.
No more questions linger.
I can see clearly.
For You I pen the end with love,
And know You do the same.
My loving God who loves me.
My God who knows my name.

Happy Birthday, Jesus! 2019

Happy Birthday, Jesus! I love You! Thank You for coming!

Merry Christmas, Everyone! God loves you!

A lot of songs were introduced to me this year, and I love that several of them were songs singing Happy Birthday to Jesus in beautiful and honoring ways. Yet the one I will share with you is a song my son sent me a link of to let me know His new current favorite.

How Many Kings? by Downhere

It was immediately a favorite for me as well. I was touched by it. The chorus alone tugged at my heart from such honest words.

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only One did that for me.

Only One did this for me!
And He did it for you too!
God loves you! ❤

 

Beautiful and Festive Display

Sparkles of light in the misty air.
Ribbons of color dance with flair.
Glitter glistens and shimmers in the light.
Snowflakes fall in the cool of the night.
The wonder of winter at Christmas time
Delightfully brightens the playful chime.
What a beautiful and festive display
Of the Holy and majestic day.
The precious Child born a King,
With Godly love and salvation to bring.
A path of pain and tears he’ll bear
To give the greatest gift to share.
Eternal Life is ours to receive.
All we have to do is just believe.
Join the angelic host in singing.
Hear the Hallelujah bells ringing.

His Creative Scheme

gaillovesgodspoetry

The pen, the ink,
The paper that tells the story.
The narrator that reads.
It’s all a part of His creative scheme.
We are His subjects.
He is our king.
The Author and Finisher of our faith.
He whispers to our spirit.
We long to hear it.
Quick obedience is key.
He loves the pen that’s ready to flow.
He loves the lips that are ready to speak.
His Story…
Is filled with His Glory! ❤
So Let It Be!
Amen.
