"Let There Be" Keep an Eye on God's Kingdom
LET THERE BE
In the midst of change...Let there be Stillness
In the midst of Disappointment...Let there be Contentment.
In the midst of Confusion....May there be Patience
Yes! In the Hour of our Testing...Always let there yet be Faith
And in our moment of Despair...Let there yet be Hope.
Despite being in the midst of these Calamaties
Remember that Jesus Christ can indeed Cope!
Let there be Silence...That we might whisper our Prayers
Let there be Joy...That we might sing our Songs
And let there be Peace...
That we should wait on the Lord however Long.
Finally, if there is one thing that we must let there be.
Let there be Love and that it might be among us All.
For without such in our hearts might we Fall.
So as we grow we may yet shed a few more Tears.
Seeking a more perfect Kingdom...
Nevertheless, let us come Near,
Therefore I pray for the Spirit of Harmony.
May all these things be found in you.
And that a Healing may began within us each.
For a testimony of what Christ Love can do.
Let these things be not without me.
And most assuredly let these things be not without you!
@ Gregory Booker
This poem was written during the midst of issues in a church I was attending which was on the verge of creating a split. The issues were not doctrinal but more opinion based. I went to the Lord in prayer and this is what came out of my closet. I just want us to keep our eye on the prize of a Kingdom to Come in Jesus name.
