Children in God's Eyes: A Poem of God's Love

Updated on February 7, 2016

I’d like to think now I’m all grown

(but then again when I’m alone)

I look inside and humbly confess –

I am a child, no more, no less

A child of God who has been blessed

I snuggle up close never leaving His nest

God in great love planned us and smiled:

“I am your Father and you are my child”

This world tells us it’s all about fun

Our Father desires we love everyone

We work with ABC’s, 123's

As our Father works on eternity

In our free time we desire to play

God uses his time to mold us clay

Sometimes like children we take and grab

God keeps giving, on Him I brag

We are taught to obey rules

As Father is busy preparing his jewels

We tell our children to take their bath

God says, ”Clean your mind to escape My wrath”

After supper parents and children sleep

Our Father never tires, our souls to keep

As silly monkeys at the zoo

God’s children look a bit silly too

Running around with no purpose or goal

Stuffing the flesh while starving the soul

Not one is smarter or stronger than He

And remember life's more than just me, me, me

Losing our way as we suffer along

When God finds us, we know we belong

“Children, my children, my little sheep

Love and obey me, your soul I’ll keep!

Don’t fret my child, don’t cry anymore

Listen, trust, obey Me, I will open the door”

      Dear suzzettenaples,

      Thank you - we are children of God, but I know what you mean, oh! to really be! It is a lofty goal, but God help us, it will be accomplished by and in and through His Son, our blessed Savior as we struggle to do our humble part, believing and submitting to Him in love.

      *Always looking up*

      Glad you enjoyed this poem. Thank you for reading and leaving a comment. Enjoy your day!


      Glad you were comforted, all of us need to be reminded in these days of uncertainty that the Father has everything under control. And that is a comfort to know - all things work together for good. Thanks for dropping by!


      I hope to always be here to inspire and comfort. Glad I made you feel special because girl, you are! Thanks for your comments.
