Poem by Patricia Usiobaifo, Women’s Apostolic Alliance member

This is a poem that offers a glimpse of who God is to me and how I have experienced His merciful love.

As I sit here in nature watching the world pass me by,

In my mind I hear the echoes of peoples’ questions over time.

“Why do bad things happen to good people?

Why are the lives of  the young and innocent cut short?”

I don’t have the answers to these questions sometimes asked and often thought.

The only thing I know for certain

Is that God has a perfect plan

For every soul; every being

After all God created man.

His plan is to see them reconciled to the Father

To fulfil their destiny and call;

To be conformed to the image of Jesus,

Peace, liberty, eternal life for all .

But that is God’s perfect plan

And sadly we don’t always agree

And He also gave us freedom of choice

So ultimately it’s up to you and me .

We can choose God’s ways, His wisdom, and His Word

Or we can follow our hearts, our desires, the ways of the world.

We are free to accept

We are free to reject

We are free to do as we please .

The only truth I can share with you Is what He has  done for me.

He called me, redeemed me, set me apart;

Delivered, healed, and restored my heart .

He showed me through His love that I have great  worth.

He speaks truth into my Spirit and revelation through His Word.

My God is gentle, kind, and tender;

He is faithful, He is perfect love .

There is nothing and no one that compares to  Him,

Not in this world, nor below, or above.

He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning, and the end 

He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah

He is Abba Father, Sovereign God,

King of Kings and yet … He is my friend.
