When challenged to ponder about inventory of survival-status my mind succumbs toward sublime intellectual deconstruction yet conquering spirit emerges to prevail with blissful glow for triumphant testimony, exposing meaningful existence. Analysis of faith’s wholeness Exposes my vain worthlessness Humbling me to seek God of grace Completing me with love’s embrace. When confronted vis-à-vis my understanding about the Almighty with this vital spiritual question, "Do you really know God? my predicament regarding the divine was then put into the crucible an encounter that has become a milestone in my faith venture… Faith-inquiry for the first time Awakened my soul with blest chime While pointed to God Who’s the way The truth, and life I must obey. When invited to a Bible study “to know the Lord all the more” I declined many times being settled with my religious status asserting that I believed in God, having been raised going to church with parents and home, considered as good and well. Bible study of faith-venture By God’s prodding midst love-gesture Did lead me to His gracious heart And through trust, never to depart. When I acceded to the spiritual endeavour expounding Who God is I learned from the Scriptures His testimonies, precepts, and statutes as well as His grace, mercy, and compassion, power and wisdom that define and describe HIM as the Lord, and distinguish HIM as the Saviour. Scriptures indeed exalt God’s name Expressing what His truths proclaim Granting me peaceful pardon peace Thus, my skepticism did cease. When I responded to the Holy Spirit’s gentle working my soul received the promised life eternal offered by Jesus Christ along His assured genuine freedom from iniquities’ condemnation setting me toward heavenly abode along victorious journey. Fortified faith upheld by God* Ascends along His guiding rod While Him I praise, thank, and worship Serving Him through sweet partnership.
*Jude 1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. February 10, 2022 3rd place, "Pick-A-Title, Vol 28- A Deconstruction" Poetry Writing Contest Sponsored by Edward Ibeh; judged on 2/13/2022.
