Will You Believe?

Write a believe poem and/or...

John 14:27

John 16:33




This world
will wound
And disappoint
And betray
And pretend
But I 
will bind
Grief’s gap
-ing groans
And be 
Your 
Faithful 
Friend

This world 
will pass 
away;
This life 
on earth
Ephemeral
But I AM 
Alpha
and 
Omega
I AM 
Eternal

This world 
at best
Brings out 
the worst
In mortal’s 
sin-cursed 
glove
But I 
transform
Fear, 
doubt,
and hate,
Into 
faith, 
hope 
and love

This world 
is chaotic 
and cruel
with wars 
that will not 
cease
I AM gentle
patient 
and kind
I AM
Your perfect
peace

This world
makes promises
that it 
cannot keep
or control
I AM
the Word, 
Way,
 Truth 
and Life
the Daddy
of your
Soul

Will you 
embrace 
this world's 
illusions; 
trust death's 
loveless 
lies 
Or will 
you believe
 and receive
 life's
 everlasting
 Prize?

Love, God

Compact Version😊

This world will wound and disappoint and betray and pretend
But I will bind grief’s gaping groans and be your Faithful Friend

This world will pass away; This life on earth Ephemeral
But I AM Alpha and Omega; I AM Eternal

This world at best brings out the worst in mortal’s sin-cursed glove
But I transform fear, doubt and hate into faith, hope and love

This world is chaotic and cruel with wars that will not cease
I AM gentle, patient and kind; I AM your perfect peace

This world makes promises that it cannot keep or control
I AM the Word, Way, Truth and Life, the Daddy of Your soul

Will you embrace this world's illusions; trust death's loveless lies 
Or will you believe and receive life's everlasting Prize?


Love, God

John 1:12

But as many as received Him, 
to them He gave the right to become children of God, 
to those who believe in His name:
