Our Holy Guide: A Poem


Jeremiah 32:36-39
They will be my people, and I will be their God. And I will give them one heart and one purpose to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants.

Our Holy Guide

Through Jerusalem’s fall
During every world war
When flood-powered waves pound walls
God is there

At the crumble of a marriage,
The onset of cancer,
While cars crash and criminals rummage,
God is the Master

He seizes the highest level of chaos,
Depths of despair
Valleys of monumental loss
God restores

Can we trust like Jeremiah,
In the face of death and ridicule,
Have faith and tell His good news?
Jeremiah listened to just One Voice in the vestibule.

Join me as we call His name,
Jesus, Our Only Lord and Savior
For His glory, His fame!

Let us abide in Our Holy Guide,
Lose the distractions, the money-grabbing factions
To live in His amazing peace, surpassing every logical mind.

  1. Some very deep and contemplative thoughts. I love Colin Buchanan’s song that he wrote after September 11, God is King, He’s going to look after everything. I get tears in my eyes from the anointing on it when he plays it in his live concerts. (He’s an Aussie singer song writer with some incredible children’s resources, but also worship albums. My children love him.)

  2. “surpassing every logical mind” Good thing. If started thinking logically, we’d never get out of bed, most mornings. Especially this morning. I would be out of bed by now, because the day looks so beautiful and promising, but it didn’t “feel” like that when the alarm went off at 6:15 am. God Bless and thank you
    for your encouraging and much appreciated words. Have a wonderful weekend. All my love, Betti Singh

  3. I love how your poem reminds us that even when things seem chaotic, God is there, he is still in charge and he can restore. it makes a big difference if we keep our focus on him and listen for his voice. Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Julie, I am so blessed by your gift of poetry! How you arranged this was amazing-weaving in God’s character with our circumstances. “Let us abide in Our Holy Guide,
    Lose the distractions, the money-grabbing factions
    To live in His amazing peace, surpassing every logical mind.” What clever wording!
