God’s Faithfulness

Faithfulness is everything to God
He promises those that are faithful to Him
And His laws—eternal life and happiness

When God commanded Hosea to marry a prostitute,
He was teaching Hosea the process of restoration
Hosea was to be committed to this woman
Despite her many wrongs and sinful practices
God’s ultimate faithfulness is about fortitude and commitment
And through repentance—restoration
Acknowledging our sins, and enduring others' sins
For God promises to rescue those who repent
To possess God’s faith we must practice faith
Bearing each others' burdens as Hosea endured his wife’s

For all of our fortitude is for a purpose
To serve each other forever
In our eternal lives in the Kingdom of God

*inspired by Steve Orchard*

The Good News

For centuries and more, 
Many have turned to leaders of this world 
Instead of relying on God
In these days of troubles, warfare and suffering
God wants us to envision a government run by him
Human-led governments will transform into a righteous régime
Those who have inspired rebellion against God
Will die away, disposed from the light
Not only human leaders will witness the uprightness
Satan and his demons in awe will be bound
Giving Christ time to produce good and peace
To those who consistently followed His way of life

God is working out his purpose 
And many of us will not like it or see His works
And as false prophets amaze the public,
God will ultimately heal the public

One day most everyone will be willing to listen
And the world will be restored to a fruitful condition
Where good news of peace and comfort
Will merely be a reality

*inspired by John Anderson*
