Doubt Not

( By Jan Phillips )

I do not doubt God
For he is the Great I AM,
He can do all things
In spite of man.

He knew before
That His son would die,
And He did it anyway
He does not lie.

I doubt myself
Because He gave me freewill,
Knowing what I would do
I know not still.

Could I give up all things earthly
For a God so good?
I hope so,
Do you think I should?

God set up boundaries
Which He can cross,
If He so desires
And it’s no great loss.

I don’t know what I’m prepared to give
To save a life even His,
Could I give a grandchild if He asked me to,
I don’t know, it’s a quiz.

I’m not as loving as my God
He gave His Son for mankind’s sake,
I doubt what I would do
I guess I’m a real flake.

I think I better get on my knee
And pray that God can forgive me,
For not loving Him enough
And being too blind to see,
That the only doubt is within me.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
