HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD ! A Sonnet

 

 

HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD ~ OUR CREATOR

He transcends our poor human intellect

Like a snow capped mountain above a desert

He scatters the profound theories of Wise Men 

Like Autumn leaves blown by a Winter wind

He shatters the might of the World's Governments

As an earthquake levels a city !

 

GOD reaches down in tenderness to the 

Poor creatures of the Earth ~ And draws them to Himself

Consider with me the greatness of my GOD

Rejoice in His judgements ~ embrace His eternal love

Stand fast in your faith ~ corageous in your commitment

For He is truely the One and Only Great GOD !

Blessed are those who put their trust in HIM  ~ AMEN

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ LOVE to all BRIAN

        'Like a snow capped mountain above a desert

        He scatters the profound theories of Wise Men'

        Thinking that from the throne of God springs ' the river of life', this comparison between the 'theories of Wise Men ' and the snow scattered in the desert leads to the idea that any thought is sterile in the absence of love. The idea of 'frozen thought' is only suggested here - these unwritten epithets belong to your poem and make it be amazing.
