Know God, Know Hope No God, No Hope

From My Heart

Louise Gibson

author of Window Wonders

 

What a difference the spelling makes.

To know Him is to love Him, and others.

To love Him is to serve Him,

as we reach out to our brothers.

 

If you have yet to meet Him,

here is all you have to do.

Confess you are a sinner-

He’s waiting at the cross for you.

 

Hang on to hope, as on Jesus you wait.

“I will go before you and make

the crooked paths straight”. Isaiah 45.

 

No God  –  No hope,

I can’t imagine such a scenario.

Why?  My heart is too full of love,

since Jesus I came to know!

“Therefore, having been justified by faith,

we have peace with God through our

Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have

access by faith into this grace in which we stand,

and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Romans 5:1,2

    What a gift you have to be able to write from you heart! As I was thinking about a picture for your poem, God brought to mind a photo I had taken with my phone one rainy day in the mountains. We had a Divine Appointment with a couple from our home town who were feeling lonely and needed fellowship.

    Louise – Most poetry leaves me scratching my head – yours leaves me filled-up with love and understanding. And this one hits the nail on the head. When we know God – we have all the hope in the world! Thank you so much.

      I am so humbled by yourt remrks, ludyja. I write from my heart, very simplistic. I truly don’t know how to write any other way. Thank you, and God bless you,
