These Humble Words



These Humble Words
by louis gander


My Lord and Savior, hear my heart -
a heart that can't ignore,
Your love that chased me all my life
and proved to be much more...

Much more than rain drops from above
that fall from all around,
collecting in the ponds and lakes
and oceans that abound.

Much more than luscious meadows, green
where horses romp and play
much more than cool, clear bubbling brooks
where little ponies lay.

Much more than all the honey found
from bees that roam the hive,
much more than flowers from the plant
with petals bright, alive!

Much more than colors on the trees
in autumn's many hue,
of golden yellow, red and orange -
much more than rainbows too.

Much more than all the mountain peaks
that touch vast skies of blue
much more than questions I have asked
in prayers I've sent to You.

Much more than countless blessings from
Your miracles galore.
Much more than all my faithfulness.
But yet, You send me more.

Much more love that I waste on
such silly, selfish stuff.
Yet still, You send me greater love.
I can't love You enough.

Now may these humble words be passed
to everyone You touch,
so they, too, will have hearts to say,
"I love You very much."

"The Rosebud" | POEMS - Inspirational and Christian

 

The Rosebud

A plain and simple Rosebud,
A flower of God's design.
I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret to unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
The flower that God opens so easily,
In my hands would fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
A flower of God's design,
Then how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

The solution is rather simple,
Trust God every moment, every day,
And look to Him in guidance
With each step along the way.

For the pathway that lies before me
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
Trusting that He'll unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose . . .
