God is Our Shelter

How many of us are under this roof?

And See it or not,

We are all living proof,

That God is the most Gracious,

The Only one,

Truly willing to protect us.

Tonight we can all eat, sleep and converse,

Many of us probably thought we could only rest in hearse.

Most of us thought we had hit the end of the road,

But No,

In this life there is more He intends

For us to fore-go.


Who is serving your meal?

Who is that is truly keepin' it real?

Yes it is He,

Who is as real as can be,

Not the council or our local MP.

But really,

It is He,

Who has decreed,

That there is more to our destiny.

Open your eyes just a little to see,

It is He,

The endless giver of Mercy,

That has given His Lost Sheep,

This safety.

I give thanks to the Lord.

And I am ever grateful,

For whatever my bed and board!

There may be no room at the Inn,

But it is Him,

Who hath provided us

A Shelter to sleep in.

My first night sleeping on a church floor through The Bethany Christian Trust. It really is an amazing project and the people I met were truly inspirational. I couldn't sleep with random thoughts, words and phrases running through my head. It is hard to explain, but I know when this happens, I have to write. And the above is what spilled out onto the paper.

I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
