Believe And You Shall Receive - Poem by Connie Ducksworth

If God had to move a mountain to get to where you are,
He'd do it in a heartbeat, no matter how near or far.
He'd brightened the darkest valleys, and part the deepest sea,
Just to prove to all mankind, how precious we are to He.
For God truly loves us, and desires to give us His best,
The times we would ask, when God when? He'd say, not just yet,
I'm working it out on your behalf, My best is yet to come,
Be still, be patient, be willing to wait, for soon it shall be done.
Cause first He has to pull and pluck out things that don't belong,
Test and trials will surely come, they'll come to make us strong.
So we can be His arms and legs, and be His hands to reach,
He'll give us His heart to teach & love, and through His voice, we'll speak.
To reach those who are hurting, cause they don't know where they are,
They've lost their way in the wilderness, they've gone & strayed too far.
They've fallen into deep waters, where sadly, many of them have drowned,
Because they have no one to tell them, that God can turn them around.
His open arms are waiting to heal them from all their pain,
And if, they could only trust in Him, their life would truly change.
For there's nothing impossible, He cannot do, to deliver and set men free,
He'll smash prison doors wide open, if they can only Believe!

    The construct of god is an ancient comfort. No reasonable proof or belief. Those who blindly follow this irrational life path are doomed to miss out on all of life's true beauty. So sad.: -( (Report) Reply

    This is a very good poem. I was thinking. 'I should read this in church one day while I was reading it. I really enjoyed it, and every word was true. (Report) Reply
