God is Good and Faithful...

No matter what we do, say, deny or believe, God is good and faithful still 
even when we cannot explain His pure and perfect will.

The art of word cannot defer
Nor from the heart and soul deter
Those things that God to life ordains
Of human hurt and sorrow-pains
Lest we, in laughter’s lease forget
That God is good and faithful yet

This load that we are called to bear
Of living’s give and taking care
Is but the little leap whereby
We traverse to the by-and-by
And all must submit to death’s chill
Where God is good and faithful still

The art of word cannot estrange
The heart and soul from the exchange
Of transient to eternity
As flesh dons immortality
For naught of thought annuls the soul
Where faithful God is in control

Even though my Uncle Abner knows that God is good and faithful still, he sorrows now in the death of his wife and soul-mate, Almeda(mentioned at the end of this post) who passed away yesterday.

Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; 
Deut.7:9 KJV


  1. Janet, I'm so sorry for the loss of your aunt Almeda and wish you comfort from our heavenly Father. Blessings.
