Okay, my dear readers, confession time. I am not a poet. That being said, here is a poem of praise from my heart. Save it. Print it out. It’s my gift to you if it echos the cry of your heart. If not, consider writing your own.
Father God, I love You so;
You care for me even when I don’t know.
I often question Your intent,
Despite those promises You’ve already kept.
I try to make sense of all around,
yet my eyes focus narrowly on my own.
You forgive my impatience,
and my self-righteous thoughts;
And secured my salvation through Your Son’s
death on the cross.
He redeemed all my sins and gave me new life;
an act that cost a most precious price.
With Your help, dear Lord,
I will trust in the perfect plan
that is a gift from Your great hand.
Thank You for each day’s new mercies,
and the grace that wipes away all my inequities.
To You, Adonai, is my praise for always;
may my last breath be a whisper
giving You all the glory.
His Goodness; Our Blessing
When we reflect on the goodness of the Lord, it brings our daily challenges into perspective. Composing your own poem or prayer or song of praise is a great way to do just that. Go ahead, give it a try. You just may surprise yourself.
“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song.” Psalm 28:7
Reflection: Have you ever composed a poem or prayer or song of praise? What’s preventing you from doing so?
