In God We Trust

God will provide all that I need, but, maybe not all I desire,
For Godís Ways are indeed, above mine and much higher,
Words of Truth I must heed, when I am in the Refinerís fire,
For God alone is all I need, especially as times are so dire.

It is God and itís God alone, controlling all that we will see,
While God cares for His Own, tending to both you and me,
With Authority from His Throne, which spans all of Eternity,
In these times we may bemoan, Heís our Rock of Certainty.

As times change He cannot, as He remains sure and stable,
As uncertainty becomes our lot, it is The Lord, Who is able,
To deliver us from fires so hot, dismissing manís dire label,
For our God, is hindered not, from filling every empty table.

It is God in whom we trust, when times are as dark as night,
When our hopes turn to dust, God will make all things right,
For those who believe like us, when we walk in Godís Light,
Our real faith in God is a must, as He delivers by His Might.

While next to God, we are small, He guides us, day by day,
If in the night, we should fall, He helps us up along the way,
For Christ is The Lord of all, no matter what men might say,
For all who heed Christís call, God with you, is sure to stay.

How strange it is that it's easy to trust God to supply our, water, air, gravity, growth and food, yet difficult to trust Him in some of our dealings with others.  Especially not judging or filling with revengeful thoughts, when wronged, and waiting for His timing in things we'd like to have.  He's done all the work and only asks us to trust Him for everything.  How blessed we are when we do.

Thank you for writing great poetry that spurs deep reflection, Bob.

God bless,
Rae

Bob, thanks for posting such a great reminder of where our security is in these unsettled times.

Excellent work with the structure of the poem, too!  I like the fact that both the internal and end rhymes were consistent through all four lines of each stanza, and yet it all flowed without feeling forced. Whether you wrote it that way or as eight-line stanzas that you then combined, either way the result is wonderful and obviously took some thought to pull off.
