What is and What Always Will Be 

Just relaxing and watching an old movie. And you hear it. That one sentence that God is speaking to you with. It stirs your heart. And rumbles in your soul. It was just another line of the movie. But the weight of the words hits you like a ton of bricks.  Tony was watching an old movie that his father made for him. His father had passed away years earlier. But he thought ahead and said:

“I made all this for you. 

What is and what always will be my greatest creation – is you.” 

– Iron Man 2

And I hear Abba Father saying this to you and I today. God made this world for you. And it is good. And God made you and I and called it VERY GOOD!

My someday is finally here
I forgot my past, I press on ahead
born for such a time as this

*

a change of heart, it’s only the start
of the goodness of God
that’s coming my way

*

No more running or hiding
I am more than surviving
God has supplied all that I need

*

No more whining or crying
God’s favor is on me
His grace makes me sing

*

No more losers, abusers
I am no longer a victim
The Mighty God has delivered me

*

No more cheaters or liars
I’m living in the truth
He gave me royal blood
*
No more fighting or strife
I’m resting in His peace
God’s calmed me in the storm

*

No more worries or anxiety
I trust in my God
He is faithful to the end

*

No more bondage or slavery
I am free in the King
An adopted child with inheritance

*

No more poverty or want
I am blessed beyond measure
The love of God changes everything

*

My someday is finally here!

Thank you for your support these past 30 days.  I think I made 28/30 poems, oh well, ce’ la vie! I really appreciate your reading all of this poetry! I don’t know how all of you poets do this everyday. I do  look forward to May 1st and normal Prayers and Promises format.  Thank you Jesus! (And thank you http://www.ryhmezone.com)

He Knows Your Poverty

He Knows Your Poverty

Did you ever wonder why
the King of the sky
would leave Heaven above
come to Earth with love
to join us in our poverty
*
When you run out of money
before the end of the month
and choose between diapers
and gas for work
pawn all of your stuff
for a bag of groceries
*
And you use what you have
for all that you can
cause that is all
that you’ve got
*
And you pray that someday
it won’t be like this
as you tell the kids
no not today
just because
*
He sees all your tears
and collects every one
in a jar up in Heaven
to shower you soon
with blessings instead
of the pain that life brings
*
For the promise He’s given
Do not fear, I’ll provide
when you’re weak,
then I’m strong
Poor in spirit,
you’re blessed
*
so we try to rejoice
consider ourselves worthy
for ours is the
Kingdom of
Righteousness
*
Choosing to believe
All things will
work out for good
There will be
a purpose
for everything
*
Or will you sit back
demand more and more
pay for the death
of your soul
with a life
spent on yourself
*
pretend this is it
take what you can
forgetting His death
and resurrection
*
will you endure
in your pain
will you find love
in the dark
will you choose life
from a cross
can you rejoice
in your suffering
if life here
is not all there is
*
Jesus knows what it’s like
to trade riches for rags
endure hardship
and suffering
*
But He didn’t give up
He came here to save you
Carried out Gods plan
to make all things new
*
His death brings you life
His resurrection brings hope
that out of this pain
something good will come
*
Surely we’ll see the
goodness of God
in the land of the living
He promised, He said
*
And someday soon
in the blink of an eye
We will meet Him
Up in the sky
live in a mansion
streets lined with gold
dance with the Savior
as He welcomes us home
