What We Know


Yon skies are over-flowing with the glowing of new day
And you and I, not knowing what waits in its come-what-may
Are never at the mercy of its circumstance alone
But ever in the faithful Keep of He who brings us dawn

He sets upon the heart a guard lest fear should paralyze
The Hope in us when life is hard and overcome with sighs
He never will forsake us, we, the darlings of His care
Are ever in the Able Hands of He who rules the air

Rejoice, The Voice of He who first uttered Time into space
And spoke all into being, but redemption, grants us grace
And though we never know what we may face, ah, this is sure
The One True God goes with us and through Him we can endure

How small man’s acumen to ken and understand His way
How vast The Everlasting God who begets day-to-day
Where, though we know time may not show the ‘why’ of its travail
His love whereby we go, we know, will never, ever fail

David’s Prayer

 David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying,
“Praise be to you, Lord,
    the God of our father Israel,
    from everlasting to everlasting. 
 Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power
    and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
    for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;
    you are exalted as head over all. 
 Wealth and honor come from you;
    you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
    to exalt and give strength to all. 
 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
    and praise your glorious name.

1 Chron. 29:10-13

    1. Thank-you...written as I prayed for my friend Diane and my friend's son-in-law Jason, both going through valleys right now, but last night as I read the passage I included it was a great comfort and reminder that this same God, David's God is our God, from everlasting to everlasting, everything and everyone is His.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
