GOD
by Renu Thomas

Father God, You are the unseen One,
No man has seen You but Your Son,
O God, You are the most Holy One,
But we see You in Your Son.Creator God, most Holy One,
You loved us so, your sinful ones,
That on the cross, You gave Your Son,
To save us, Your sinful ones.Lamb of God, sinless Son,
In flesh, You came for us, Your sinful ones,
On the cross, You died, blameless One,
To save our souls, Your unworthy ones.Spirit of God, restoring One,
You live in us, Your sinful ones,
Grace You give us, one by one,
To overcome sin, till we see Your Son Triune God, God in one,
Thank You for living in us, Your unworthy ones,
Help us by Your grace, oh, sinless One,
To walk in love, for Your sake, merciful One.

ALEX MATHEW, CHRISTIAN HEALING, CHRISTIAN POETRY, FIGHTING CANCER IN FAITH, HOPE, SUFFERING

Cancer is so Limited – and so is Life: by Dr. Robert L. Lynn & Dr. Alex Mathew

Cancer is so limited—                                               And so is Life.

It cannot cripple love.                                               It quenches hatred.

It cannot shatter hope.                                             It roots optimism.

It cannot corrode faith.                                             It restores trust.

It cannot eat away peace.                                         It consolidates gratitude.

It cannot destroy confidence.                                 It establishes assurance.

It cannot kill friendship.                                          It rejuvenates camaraderie.

It cannot shut out memories.                                 It rekindles relations.

It cannot silence courage.                                        It revives  convictions.

It cannot invade the soul.                                        It builds up wisdom.

It cannot reduce eternal life.                                  It leads to extravagant life.

It cannot quench the spirit.                                    It soothes the spirit.

It cannot cancel resurrection.                               It guarantees resurrection.

CHRISTIAN POETRY, HOPE

SUNRISE OF HOPE

Hope rises in our hearts
like the sunrise over a
snow-capped mountain peak,
reaching up to the skies.

Hope gives us gladness
from dawn to dusk,
flooding our souls with
heaven’s sweetest music.

Hope assures us of a
rousing victory over defeat,
of a glorious certainty
that the best is yet to come.

Hope opens our eyes
to the beauty of life
and the tranquil walk of faith.

Hope makes us aware
of a God of compassion and kindness,
who touches our wintry despair
with His amazing love.

In the midst of life’s stormy seas,
we will have perfect peace,
if Christ is our Captain,
our hope and our guide.

Ring the joybells of life
as we fly on the wings of hope,
with Christ as our Pilot.
Enjoy the glorious sunrise
of hope over the mountains of life.

GOD’S GARDEN

I am like
an olive tree,
growing in
God’s garden.
I trust in
God’s constant love.
I will always
thank God
for His wonders.
I will say that
God is good.
I will speak
Of God’s love
And kindness.
God is my glory
And the joy
Of my life.
I am like a
unique flower
in His garden
spreading the
rich fragrance
of Christ my Lord.
