Dear church, I’d like to share a poem I wrote while reflecting on the present encouragement that comes from recalling God’s past faithfulness. I hope it inspires you to recall God’s perfect track record of promise keeping in your own experience and provides you with encouragement to persevere as it has done for me time and time again.
He owns the sea, great and wide,
And everything that lives inside.
O how much more can God provide
And see His children’s needs supplied!
All things at His disposal are–
Each molecule, each wandering star.
Is His hand short? My need too far?
No! Jesus is a reservoir!
For never once has my Lord failed
To meet a need, yet I’ve travailed
As anxious thoughts my mind assailed,
But each time, Providence prevailed!
O patient Father, full of grace,
Please teach me not to doubt Your pace.
Your timing’s flawless as I trace
How You’ve provided, case by case.
