Lost for Words

                         Lost for Words

There are no words that I can find
Or thoughts which come out of my mind
Which can explain God’s wondrous love
Given man from Heaven above

Why would God mould man from clay
Come down to earth and with man play
Knowing Satan too was thrown
Down to this earth and out of home

God surely knew without a doubt
                        Satan would be round about
Wanting to destroy God’s plan
Of making Adam the first man

From Adam’s ribs Eve became
His helpmate too, they had no shame
Satan saw His chance to get
Back at God, he’d not forget

Banned to earth, his life now spent
Because of pride he God upset
He tricked young Eve then Adam too
Telling them what they should do

Awful sin then entered in
Man forgot God’s words to him
We all suffer now from that
God’s voice is rarely now a chat

Why is it that we sometimes say
Has God really gone away
Does He really care for us
Or are we really too much fuss

Why Why Why is not the way
God wants all mankind to pray
His word to man is GO GO GO
Into the world. put Christ on show

We have no right to question why
For God controls both earth and sky
He is the one and only God
All other god’s are manmade odds

They cannot speak or heal a man
They’re simply made like a tin pan
Isaiah when king Uzziah died
Realised, that king he’d idolised

God touched his lips with burning coal
His understanding was made whole
That was when God sought for a man
To speak to this world of His great plan

Isaiah did not say, why God
Said here I am, I am your Bod
He did not even hesitate
But simply went and did not wait

He had to speak to people there
Who heard but often did not care
He knew that he might suffer strife
His role he knew was whole of life

           Our role is now to understand
Gods in control of this earth land
Our duty is to spread God’s word
Christ’s love for us needs to be heard

Christ will one day soon return
It seems that man won’t ever learn
Famines, plagues, and wars and more
Now strike this earth from shore to shore

The end times now are almost here
God knows the time and too the year
When Christ will come upon that cloud
With Hosts of angels shouting loud

Man will suffer great pain then
As Satan fights on to the end
Still trying hard to be the boss
He knows, but can’t accept he’s lost

Man or woman denying God
Will sadly find they’re not well shod
There will be dead men on the  street
Food for ravenous birds to eat

Those who are well shod will know
That in Christ alone they'll live and go
Be on the pathway up to heaven
There with Christ, red wine and leaven

Man’s journey from this earths roadways
                        Will end with wondrous shouts of praise  
                        As we enter in through Heaven's gate
                        Knowing then we are not late

About this poem

I strongly believe we are in, what many are seeing, world activities the like of which, in the bible, in the book of Revelation, will take place soon. Soon could be today or tomorrow or 100 years from now. We are all sinners, our only hope is to know God is always in control of this earth come winter or high water. Our hope of salvation is in Christ, God's Son who died on the cross for our sin. He rose again proving God can raise the dead. We need to see that IN Christ we live and have our being when we simply trust what God did to save mankind. We must not ask why we must simply believe and gives thanks. I hope my poem radiates through this earth of ours.
