Amazing steadfast love...When you think about it, do we deserve it? Not really, but that's just the way it is...and I'm so glad! I'm sure you are too!

Steadfast


By


h. lena jones


 


 


We rip holes in the ozone layer


Rage wars in diverse places


Wilfully challenge His commandments


Add to that ignoring the Lord’s Prayer


Or worst of all dispute that He exists


And insist that we know better


Yet, in spite of our disobedience


God is steadfast in His love


He sends the seasons


Just the same


As day follows night


He holds not back


The air we breathe


Nor spitefully declare


We’re a hopeless, stubborn lot


And in frustration press the delete button


Instead He waits


With Fatherly patience


For us to come to our senses


Like the misguided Prodigal son


Wanting back into the fold


How amazing is that I ask


To serve such a loving


Steadfast God of grace!


 


“I will arise and go to my father and will say to Him,


Father I have sinned against Heaven


And before thee…”


(Luke 15:18)

Precious and brilliant, Lena!

You are reaching deep into the minds of your readers...
and prayerfully, promoting changes of hearts: '...for as a man/woman/child thinks, so they become.'

Excellent in every way!

Love&HUGS, Rhonda

His love is forever but our obstinence is strong. You wrote this well. by the way, Richard, the delete button may be a mute point if the computer crashes. Is that our fate?
God Bless,
Lew
Reviewed by richard cederberg 7/31/2006
No the "delete" button is not yet, though I believe the "restructuring" button is soon to be pushed.

Such wisdom flows through your pen dear Lena. Always palatable, and always nourishing to the mind and soul. You are a rare blessing! There is no argument one can mount against what you write because it has sprung from the heart of our Creator.

In fraternity and vision ...
Richard Lloyd Cederberg
