I call this a poem but to be honest I’m not sure what it is but this poem came out of my yesterday pain, you see I had not been able to hear God’s voice and I became afraid and this led me to write my first poem (full story and poem can be found here). After I had completed it I read it to my husband, who had been able to hear God that morning and He gave me a verse from Isaiah 60 (verse 19-20):
19The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
20Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
It seems random right? Totally unrelated to what I had been experiencing but no. What he was telling me that this same promise is given in the book of Revelation, hundreds of years after Isaiah, God never forgets what He says and what He says will always come to pass no matter how long it takes. And in these verses and in the voice of my husband once again I heard God speak to me and out came this second poem.
Heaven and Earth will pass away but My Word will endure forever;
My Word will go out and it shall fulfil that which I sent it to do.
Do you think your life is in vain?
Does God make mistakes?
Did I not speak you into existence?
I AM your creator
I have made you uniquely,
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
I have created you for a purpose,
Can the dead glorify Me?
I knew you before you were,
I made you in your mother’s womb,
Will I then neglect you?
Will I forget My own child?
Surely your mother and your father may forsake you but I shall never.
I have a great plan for you.
I take the things that are of no effect,
Those which are despised and ridiculed and I lift them up.
Your life is my testimony,
You will Glorify Me.
From the beginning of time
I already knew who you would be,
I knew what you would do;
I have set great works for you,
Good works have I prepared that shall
Look at My Israel,
See how she suffers,
See the scorn heaped upon her,
But it is only for a little while.
I have allocated this period of darkness
So that her light can break forth in splendour.
I will redeem her and she will
Do not let your soul be cast down,
I have not forgotten you;
Only for a little while do you suffer but your joy will be boundless.
Trust in Me, would you call God a liar?
I have said it and it will not fail,
You will Glorify Me.
Yes Papa, I will glorify You.
