Our God is loving

Our God is loving

Here is my first attempt at poetry,

It started with a question from one of my kids,

then this is what came out:


Our God is loving

He is also Holy, Righteous,

and Just

He will not tolerate sin

and rebellion

Free will is a must


Some may think

that He is unfair

He is who

He is without

a doubt,

He truly does care

He judges us not based

upon how much

we have or how

much we accomplish

If we choose t

he house of

the LORD

We will always flourish

We are His creation

He gives us the choice

Lay down everything

we own then we

will forever rejoice

Good Morning, I voted up when I woke up. A fine piece of work, but I have a feeling it was more praise than work.

Even though it won't become cannonized it could meet the criteria to become 2 Psalms chapter 1!

Along with the thought from your message, CMerrit, is the fact that God wants everyone to be saved. He would prefer that everyone was a believer. Voted up.

Fred, you made my day, I thank you for your kind remark.

Diamond, that was part of the discussion by my kids that instigated my thoughts for the poem...they wondered WHY God just didn't make us all believers. The we talked about the whole Free Will.

Thanks for you stopping by and the kind remarks.

James, any creative talents that I have with poetry HAS to be given to God, because that is the only way I could ever be poetic. These words were inspired, and I give God ALL credit and praise Him for allowing me to use words to express my thoughts.

I really appreciate it when you stop by and comment.

Yes we've just experienced another typical example of your god's (ahem) love LOL!

Ask the Japanese and tourists that managed to survive recently. LOL!

CMerritt 5 years ago from Pendleton, Indiana Author

Composer, He is Holy, Righteous, and Just......His Love is for those who, with their own free will, choose to accpet Him....to have an eternal life with Him.

The evil and bad that we face everyday is the natural course of a sinful world that we ALL endure. It is the life AFTER we leave this world is what having a realtionship with God is all about.

THE BEAUTY OF GOD’S LOVE By BERNARD LEVINE

God is amazing

He chooses every baby's DNA and blood type

He puts every star in place to float in the sky

He creates every fingerprint with a rare design

He makes an egg to burst open with life.

God is great

He selects all the love-songs for every bird to sing

He makes broken bones mend

He gives every flower its specific perfume

He cares for seeds and they turn to fruit.

God is awesome

He tells the seasons when to change

He gives us air so we can breathe

He feeds multitudes of living organisms on our planet

He waters fields of green carpets with morning dew.

Every leaf is a marvel of God's genius

Every baby is filled with God's love

There is nothing in this world more precious

than the beautiful kindness of God.
