The Faithfulness of God...


Oh Lord, how Faithful & Trustworthy you are;
Gentle care you take of our hearts,

When we are bruised, and still broken inside;

Your unfailing love, it lasts!


Alpha & Omega, try to describe your immensity;
Yet no words can really do,

For though we know how truly small we are;

Can we truly comprehend, You?


Ingeniousness & Humility, harmoniously coinciding;
The finest example You give,

Yet we rage and war, and do not strive for peace;

Why are we so impassive?


When will people realise, it’s because they do not yearn;
For Truth & Righteousness;

Like the blind, who can continually stumble and fall;

Self’s become the best!


Yet there still is hope, as you are providing the time;
for all to seek your face,

Healer & Deliverer, You are the only true way;

Trinity God, the author of grace!


Friend and Creator, yet all at the same time;
Can this really be,

Yes it is, for by your Word we have become;

Members of royalty!

Unlimited and Personal, we can share all our cares;
With You, who knows all,

Taking our burdens, as if they were your own;

Relief, far from small!


Love with immense patience, is what you constantly give;
That we need never despair;

For through Jesus Christ, the battle has been forever won;

In this we freely share!




Hope you enjoyed this reflective poem on God's faithfulness.
It began by me believing that God wanted me to spend some time with Him...and so, I decided to do this by reflecting upon His faithfulness...the poem grew from what follows. Love Melanie :)

I love the acrostic of Faithful...especially the part about our Lord's ingeniousness and humility...He is so otherworldly, so holy beyond our comprehension, so high above us, yet He loves us!
