Knowing God

From Ephesians 2:8:  “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”

During childhood years

Hearing about God

Stories filling ears

Joining with His squad


Years moving along

Learning about God

Life fills with His song

Accepting His rod


Adulthood arrives

Discovering God

His message now thrives

Walking on fresh sod


Maturity comes

Truly knowing God

Steady, beating drum

Crashing sin’s facade


Divine hands rebuild

Spirit calling out

Righteousness refilled

Taking Heaven’s route

From Philippians 3:15-16:  “Let those of us then who are mature be of the same mind; and if you think differently about anything, this too God will reveal to you.  Only let us hold fast to what we have attained.”

  1. A yes, as life moves along, we certainly are invited to embrace the changes that come along – and to grow in our ability to truly know God, aren’t we? Lovely rhythm and rhyme here, (((Richard))).
