What do I think about God?

What do I think about God?

God is there, I have no doubt.

How does He look on me?

His word says not just that He loves me, but that He is love.


How do I feel about that?

I’m glad that it’s so but,

I often feel so far away

And find it hard to keep in my heart that fact that He does love me.


How then can I believe?

Living in this world distorts

My view of God’s love,

And it’s easier to feel isolated than to feel loved.


What is the answer?

I must not avoid Him because

I know that He is there;

Yet His word seems to demand more from me than I can give.


What does it come down to?

I will trust in His great mercy

As the Prodigal did His Dad.

Not what I am Oh Lord, but Who You are is what counts.


What can I offer Him for my soul?

Nothing – for there was once an offering

Made for hopeless men such as me.

I thank Him for the mercy that foresaw and met my need.


Am I feeling far from God?

I am assured by His faithful word

That I am loved by a greater love

Than any man can ever understand or appreciate.


What then do I think about God?

God is there I have no doubt.

How does He look on me?

He doesn’t just love, He is love and can’t be anything else.

Therefore I will trust Him no matter what may come, or how I feel.

    Greetings Col
    Great to see you again. What do I think of God? Well He is intensely and personally interested in my eternal welfare..
    I agree with Martin Luther. He is personal.
    “The life of Christianity consists of possessive pronouns” says Martin Luther. It is one thing to say, “Christ is a Saviour”; it is quite another thing to say, “He is my Saviour and my Lord.” The devil can say the first; the true Christian alone can say the second.

    Oh wow…what a great poem. And I love the last line – “Therefore I will trust Him no matter what may come, or how I FEEL.”
    While reading it, I could sense your deep passion for the Lord…like the Psalmist….and no matter your FEELINGS, you always come back to your TRUST in Him alone. Really enjoyed reading this poem! Thank you for sharing, Colin. Linda in Arizona
