BRIAN & ANGELA

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

  • Comment from author about the poem: We live in perilous times ! Many Americans are fearful of the stark outcomes of a Trump Presidency ~ Many smaller nations are fearful of Putin's Russia ! The Earth's increasing population (10 billion by 2100) and diminishing resources and of course Global Warming and the consequences of global climate change. Every School Child in the USA knows this is a reality except MAD UNCLE DONALD who still thinks it's a CHINESE MYTH ! Thank GOD he is still Sovereign and the Controller and Sustainer of the UNIVERSE. We are fortunate in the UK we have a Christian Head of State (QUEEN ELIZABETH II) and a Christian Prime Minister (THERESA MAY) but we still need God's helsp (and a lot of prayer) to steer us through BREXIT # AMEN 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.
