“I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart;
I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation;
I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness
from the great congregation.” Psalm 40:10

One of the things that I want to get back into is writing poetry.  I used to write poetry quite often based on things that God had taught me through His Word.  One of the neat things about glorifying God throug poetry is that it is a chance for me to proclaim God’s deliverance and steadfastness love.  It is a written way for me to proclaim His faithfulness shown to me at the cross.  Recently I wrote a new poem about Psalm 40.

Mt trust is in God
And I wait patiently for Him.
When I cry to His throne,
I am assured He will hear.

My steps are firm because of His grace.
When I couldn’t help myself
He rescued me and gave me a new song
With words to praise and extol His name.

I will tell of all He’s done
For His deeds of love and faithfulness
Are more plentiful than the stars in the sky,
None can compare to Him.

He is my help and deliverance.
At the cross I rejoice and find my gladness,
Continually “Great is the LORD” is on my lips
As your law dwells in my heart.

Even when His will is not mine,
Doing my Father’s will is my delight,
So that many will see and fear
And put their trust in the Lord.
