warning! religous poem- My God Who

My God Who
by Janice Sanford

 My god who is in heaven
How wise and forgiving you are:
From your throne, hidden by
The stars at night and the sun
In the day; you still find the
Time to light my way.

My god who lives and
Works through me
How loving and forgiving you are
Through my heart, hidden by
The flesh and worldly, you
Nurture my soul, and gently
Move me closer to my star.

My god who holds the keys
To life and death in his hands
And the keys to all good things
How barren my life would be
How empty my soul would be
Without you who sent your son
to live and die for me ~

My God! My God! Who knew me
before I was born, I give thanks
to thee... for sending your son
Jesus to walk through life with me.

I find it a sad day when you have to warn people it is religious instead of blasphemous.
Learn from others. Life is to short to make all the mistakes yourself.

ya isn't that twist?

Tell you guys what - Everyone likes a poem that speaks from a personal perspective. That ubiquitous "THEY" says religion should be a private affair. Tell that to the crowd up there! Here's my offering ... I like yours too by the way.

Greatest Party Ever Thrown

Sounds of His triumph shake eternity past
One day in Victory calls a window through time
Songs of rejoicing are carried on wings
Sounds overcoming are worn like a page
Of history turning - 
forever to stamp ...
The times when we ravaged the enemies campĒ   

And on, and on, and outward unfurls
The flag of His Standard His children have borne
So carried in beauty in the wheel of His grace
That time by contrition would give up it's race
(Outside His plan having nothing to offer)
                           
And multiplied millions of sparks from the night
Are issuing volleys of praise to the Light
Cherubim, Seraphim- eyes fixed and infused
Saw the volunteered crowns from the former accused
They danced on the crystalline Broadway of Love
As Ezekielís creature was hovering above

And thousands of millions of voices were heard
By the sacrificed Lamb and Unspeakable Word
In barrels of thunder the lightning proclaimed
Our God overcame! - Our God overcame!
And legions of angels in unison sang -
And from under His throne praise declaringly rang
Our God overcame! - Our God overcame!

I think they are both beautiful reads. Spiritually filling and delightful praise. There's a few repetitious elements that could use some work but nothing that stopped me from enjoying these pieces. Brava, Bravo, and Praise the Lord. :)

sincerely,

Yes indeed, we live in a sad world where expressions of our faith have become taboo.

I like both poems and can relate to each of them.

Dynodreamer - Several of your lines caused a "tightness in my chest" that comes
when something special touches me - L3 and L18-19. Very nice!

I like both of these; the first for its simplicity of language and meaning and the second for its flow and beauty.
