Snapshots of My Life - an Inspirational Poem

Snapshots of My Life

In my mind I see pictures

Snapshots of my life

Memories of happiness,

challenges and strife

*

Just snapshots of history

Moments in time

A story, a song, an adventure,

a rhyme

*

Is that all my life is

A collage of snaps?

Is that what defines me

What the past was? ... Perhaps ...

*

But God holds my future

Secure in His hands

He's carefully designed it

And thought out His plans

*

For there's treasure inside me

It was there from the start

But it's only discovered

As he restores my heart

*

God can make all things new

You can start fresh today

And leave failures and hurts -

Snapshots of yesterday

*

For God is a God

Who will not be contained

His love is unlimited

And cannot be restrained

*

So live free of old snapshots -

Views of the past

God is awesome and powerful

All that He does will last

*

For He knows you and loves you

He defines who you are

Our lesser ambitions ....

He exceeds them by far.

      I really loved this. The message is a very good one. I especially like

      "For God is a God

      Who will not be contained

      His love is unlimited

      And cannot be restrained."

      and

      "For He knows you and loves you

      He defines who you are

      Our lesser ambitions ....

      He exceeds them by far."

      I recently told someone who was trying to find out who they were to turn to the Father and God's word because the better you know Him the more you will see who you are in His eyes. Beautifully done.
