GOD WIELDS THE SUN

Astronomers maintain that we came from the sun;
Cast out from a whirling cloud of flammable gas;
Bearing on until all the solar system was spun;
Forming bodies as the whirling became a rushing mass.
Yet after billions of years our source is yet unknown,
According to these researchers even at this day.
To them we took flight like a white hot stone
And soared and circled in a beautiful display.

But believers know by Moses the first great plan;
How heaven and earth came in the beginning,
When there was no light until God’s command,
And no high energy vapors turning and spinning.
John said that light was the life of men;
A true light that came shining into the darkness.
A shining the darkness was unable to comprehend,  
Because its understanding lacked needful fitness.

Moving below the vernal earth bathed in the light--
This light which had not yet established a source--
Whose effect meant the cause would soon be in sight,
When God would enthrone the sun without remorse.
He gave it dominion over the sky of the day;
Thus the sun became our great light bearer,
Whose golden gift brightens the day travelers’ way,
And often leads man’s quest for wisdom into error.

    Very very very true. Its a waste of time what science is trying to do when it comes to lead people away from the WORD of GOD. A very beautiful piece of poetry. This goes to my fav's. Congratulations. Gidds.

    I love it in Genesis when it says that God said let there be and it was so. I just feel this awe. Then when God made man it says that he formed him from the dust of the earth. God had hands on work with man. I just marvel at this. Thank you for your work here it is very good and deserves special notice. Sara
