This God Poem

Zephaniah 3: 17

“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

Sometimes we just need a reminder that God loves us the way we are …


This God who watches worlds: sees my heart.

This careful calculator, counting countless millions: counts me in.

This artist, whose canvas outstretches eternity at both ends;

whose palette outcolours planets: paints my portrait.

This lover, Who dreams in universes: dreams of me.

This creator, whose breadth of vision spans time and spawns a cosmos;

whose woven tapestry of purpose, more compound than chaos,

eclipsing complexity, rolls out like a highway through history;

whose heartbeat deafens supernovas:

This craftsman hears my whispered cry.

This father

Kisses me.

This playwright, playing with the deaths and entrances of stars;

scripting the end from the beginning; knowing The purpose of the play,

watches my feeble audition: and writes me in.

Gerard Kelly
