The Lent group poems

Lent groups 2019: From beginning to end

The Lent groups on both Tuesday and Thursday became poets and want to share their creations, both entitled 'Our God is many things'. Here is the first

Our God is many things

He is Lord of all nature, the sun and the storm

He is helping me through the day

Warm, holding arms around me,

Love,

Friend.

Guider

The only one who does know what is going to happen now.

Our God is many things.

Our God is many things.

He is there in the storm, the wind and rain.

He is leaving us in a mess with Brexit.

He is with me,

Loving and healing.

One I do not understand.

Our God is many things.

 

Our God is many things.

All present, all knowing.

He is my leader.

He is waiting for me to turn and listen.

The rock which underpins everything.

He never comes close to me.

God is shaping my world.

Our God is many things.

Our God is many things.

He is at a bit of a distance.

He is our shepherd.

He is a benevolent father.

He is my strength.

Comforter.

He is my friend who never lets me down

Our God is many things.

And here is the second:

Our God is many things

He is everything – especially a helper

He is my saviour

Helper

Friend

He is my rock in the storm

A listening ear in the midst of turmoil

He is with me

Our God is many things.

 

Our God is many things.

He is mysterious

He is with me

He is an aspirational shadow that I try to honour and respect

He is non gender specific

He is here with us today

Our God is many things.

 

Our God is many things.

God is love of life

The confusion and unknowing

A listener

With us now and always

God is love and always there

Corrector of my muddled feelings

Our God is many things.

 

Our God is many things.

He is my leader and my carer

A restriction

He is listening and awaiting my prayers

He is Saviour

The centre of all that I am and all that I do

God is love

 

Our God is many things.
