When You Have Faith

Updated on July 30, 2012


How wondrous is this belief?

How great is every day

Knowing that your world

Is alright and free from strife


How great it’s waking up each day

Knowing that all you have to say

Is thank you Lord

Thank you for another day


How terrific is having faith

Each day something new

Each day a miracle to explore

Knowing that the Lord is near


The Bible as a guide

To let us know

What the Lord

Expects of us in the life we lead


How wonderful life is

With faith guiding us

Knowing that should we falter and fall

The Lord will extend a helping hand


He’ll not condemn us

But show us the way

To a better day

And a brighter tomorrow


When skies are grey

And the colors of the world are in shades of blue

Look towards the skies above

And know that the Lord is there


Every day there is something

That shows us the Lord is with us

To be by our side

And to take away our troubles


Peace as the day begins

No worries as we walk along the paths

That we take every time

He is there to guide us


Learning and teaching others to believe

Marveling at the beauty that surrounds us

Knowing that the Lord

Is our true friend


It’s amazing to think

That that we are here for a purpose

That each of us

Has been put on earth for a reason


Let’s be a friend

To everyone on this earth

Let’s understand

What compassion and love can do


So let’s go forth

With head held high

Thankful for all we have

The Lord watches over us


Let’s rejoice

With all the creatures of the earth

Let’s sing praises

To the Lord above

      This is a lovely sentiment, Gypsy. Wouldn't it be great if we could all take a vacation from worry and trust in God as innocently as children. I believe we'd be healthier as well as happier!

      Yes, let's do all of this!!! This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful poems I've read of yours and on Hub Pages too! It made me cry, as it was so beautiful in glorifying our sweet Lord. Nothing can separate us from His love, not even death! There is now no more condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. Voted Way Up and sharing

      Your faith is as strong and tall as the trees in the northwest!

      Perhaps, I am becoming somewhat cynical. There are times I envision God, looking down from above, slowly shaking his head at what man has become.

      Faith like yours is what keeps him around.

      Great Poem!
