Put It Out There For God

gaillovesgodspoetry

Push the pen. Push the ink.
Push the words to their brink.
Write the message. Write the story.
Write to give God all His glory.
Create the image. Create the vision.
Create in everything written.
Share the wonder. Share the history.
Share the wonder of God’s mystery.
Bring to life. Bring to attention.
Bring forth all that God mentioned.
Joy in His beauty. Joy in His love.
Joy in your home waiting for you above.
Close with mercy. Close with grace.
Close with God leading the way.

Thankful for Your Testimony

gaillovesgodspoetry

Pouring through my life,
Your testimony saturates.
Everywhere You shine my light,
It’s Your testimony that radiates.
The joy, the trials,
The long enduring sorrows
Are all preparations
For Your testimony tomorrow.
Walking through Your Holy Word,
I hide You in my heart.
Your testimony renews my mind,
And strengthens every part.
Thank You for Your thoughtfulness
In the testimony You left.
It allows me to share with others,
And helps me to improve myself.

There Is A Child

gaillovesgodspoetry

There was a God and there was a girl.
He protected her from so much of her world.
It would take a lot of time for her to realize
With all she experienced with her innocent eyes.
For so long, all she knew was terror and fear.
Death, filth, and violence were always near.
But then her soul had opened to Christ,
And He would lead her the rest of her life.
When the time came to take a look back,
She would see God’s presence she never lacked.
She saw she was protected from so much
By a God who gave her so much love.
She was learning how to love Him too,
And praise Him with all His glory due.
There is a God and there is a child.
A woman learned she was His all the while.

God Has Made My Form

gaillovesgodspoetry

Creep by creep, crawl by crawl.
The earth is such a trek.
Craggy rocks and thorny bushes
Threaten to make me wreck.
Danger appears, sounds terrify.
I hide within my shell.
I’m just a sluggish sea turtle.
I do not fight too well.
Alas the water, my safety net.
I swim within the depth.
A whole other world to battle
With every creature met.
Yet there is a blessed gift
I still have on my side.
God has made my form.
In His hand I do abide.

We Have Yet To Understand

gaillovesgodspoetry

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.

Beautiful and Festive Display

gaillovesgodspoetry

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.

Visiting Love

gaillovesgodspoetry

Love flows by
Like a little creek of water.
I hear you whisper,
“You are my precious daughter.”
Love floats by
Like a passing cloud in the sky.
I hear you whisper,
“With Me one day you’ll fly.”
Love glides by
Like a frozen piece of ice.
I hear you whisper,
“Life with you is nice.”
Life walks by
Like a couple strolling in love.
I hear you whisper,
“I wait for you above.”

A Delightful Celebration

gaillovesgodspoetry

Twinkle, twinkle, Christmas light,
You brighten the Christmas tree.
I love to watch your playful dance
As you entertain me.
Tinsel and glitter, how you glisten.
I love to watch you shine.
You make the tree come alive.
The pleasure is all mine.
Balls and bows, and ornaments,
Garland to wrap around.
A beautiful star to top the tree,
And presents to be found.
A delightful way to celebrate
The life of Jesus Christ.
The Savior born to be a King.
Our Lamb of Sacrifice.

Blowing Wind

gaillovesgodspoetry

A wind blows through, stirring the past.
Memories try to invade.
A love speaks up and makes it clear,
“This is the new creature I have made.”
Guilt finds opposition, shame meets its match.
God sends a smile for my spirit.
He reminds me every time I pray
That He does hear it.
I bow my head, close my eyes,
And mention the blowing wind.
He reassures He’s on the throne,
And protects me once again.
How great the grace and mercy of God,
Just to utter a prayer.
I cast my every care on Him
Because I know He cares.

Word Play Salvation

gaillovesgodspoetry

Seashell, seahorse, seashore.
I just don’t want to fight anymore.
Straw hat, straw broom, straw chair.
I kneel and surrender in prayer.
Bookstore, bookshelf, bookends.
I atone and seek to make amends.
Light switch, light bulb, lighthouse.
God amazes and wows.
Word Game, word count, WordPress.
I stray less and less.
Waterway, waterfall, water filter.
I learn to love my brother and sister.
Skyline, skylight, sky view.
I learn the right thing to do.
Buttermilk, butter bean, butter knife.
I have invited Christ into my life.

Such A Gift

Christ is such a GIFT! He was given and given so much on our behalf. What a gift to know Him, love Him, and serve Him. I pray that you are able to accept and enjoy your gift in Him too! ❤
God is such a GIFT! He has been generous with us from the moment He gave us life. Without Him, nothing and no one would be. The most precious thing He ever gave me… was His Son! He gave Him for you too! God loves you! ❤
The Holy Ghost is such a GIFT! He gives me guidance, comfort, and peace that passeth all understanding! The most beautiful comfort He ever gave anyone was to my Savior as He hung on the cross for me and you. He is more than willing to give you the peace and comfort you seek! The Holy Ghost loves you! ❤
