Perfect and Holy

From Psalm 100:  “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; come into His presence with singing.  Know that the Lord is God.  It is He that made us, and we are His; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.  Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise.  Give thanks to Him, bless His name.  For the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations.”

Child learning of God’s kindness

Unaware of its vastness

Praise His eternal goodwill

Laboring with steadfastness

 

Goodness, perfect and Holy

From righteousness, living water

Worship always with gladness

Crafting hands, grace-filled potter

 

God’s blessings, never-ending

His mercy flows from above

Lives rescued with divine hand

Transforming with endless love

 

Lost sheep, needing daily grace

Good Shepherd’s assisting hand

Heaven’s gate, darkness scattered

Lifting eyes to God’s homeland

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “At times when we’re struggling to trust God, we should remember all the ways He is good to us.”

  2. I love your poetry – and the photos you select to complement the words. This stanza spoke especially to me: “God’s blessings, never-ending/ His mercy flows from above/ Lives rescued with divine hand/ Transforming with endless love.” Today especially I felt rescued by His divine hand as He sent those “Willing Helpers” to out rescue!
