Our God is loving

Updated on August 13, 2013

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

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Thanks for stopping by, and yes, it did have more to do with praise than anything.

      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.

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

      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.
