GOD SHOWED HIMSELF TO ME
and post notes and photos about your poem like Beata Agustin.
God showed Himself to me through my parents firstly
Appearing with their sweet smile, welcoming me warmly
Manifesting fatherly kindness wondrously
Highlighting maternal love-care abundantly.
Growing, I was acquainted with God midst home’s bliss
Where teaching of charity is a sure practice
In family bonding with hugs, embrace and kiss
Propped by prayer for all --- of Dad, Mom, Brods and Sis.
God showed Himself to me by His active presence
Displaying His great creation’s magnificence
Controlling the universe in its existence
Acquainting me His with gracious omnipotence.
Such I learned along catechism’s perspective
Reinforced strongly by religion’s directive
In Ethics class, trust in God is imperative
Which the academe regards as affirmative.
God showed himself to me during Bible study
Exposing His nature against claims’ parody
Expressing Scriptures’ truth, immutably sturdy
Offering me redemption from sins’ malady.
In my quest to know Him more through genuine worship
The Lord granted me faith for right relationship
Of vibrant fellowship and fruitful stewardship
Around Christ’s friendship by His perfect leadership.
God through the Holy Spirit* shows me His goodness
Mercy and forgiveness for confessed guiltiness
Mighty deliverance assuring peacefulness
Miracles that uphold against trials’ hardness.
Praise-filled, I yield myself to God with gratitude
Since He owns me, bracing up my faith’s fortitude
Cognizant that He is my life’s infinitude
I show Him to all midst triumphant attitude.
*John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
