Poem: Nothing Without God


To the uncircumcised heart,
a real relationship with God
is not only strange and peculiar,
it’s unbelievably… odd.

For what role does Mankind play,
that Jehovah is mindful of us?
How could the embodiment of Love
allow us to martyr Christ Jesus?

Unlike the angels of the heavenly realm,
we’re made in the image of God Himself.
Christ was not crucified for angels, but…
to insure a way of bringing us back to Himself.

For we’ve been given physical and mental strength,
His Word, desires, sacred power and authority.
So embrace the liberating message of the Gospel
and determine your level of desired intimacy…

with God, our Creator and Divine Maker.
Seeds, containing abilities of earthly success
were spiritually deposited in us, and are ignited
when we humbly acknowledge Him and confess…

the Truth of Christ’s holy, sacrifice
and our dependence on Providential Love.
Know that as His Children of the Kingdom,
you’re blessed with promises from above.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs

It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
