    ON MY PEW SAT HOPE

    ON MY PEW SAT HOPE


    My soul was encouraged as Hope sat down next to me.
    Some say she didn’t bring much, but I felt Her appearance to be sufficient.
    Desire and I had waited for Her impatiently,
    And now that She had arrived we could carry-on expeditiously.

    From our pew, we attempted to get God’s attention.
    We waved our hands, clapped, and even danced in front of our seats.
    Others around us noticed that we were caught up in the spirit,
    But we continued nudging God until He responded accordingly.
    We told Him about our problems, concerns, and disagreements.

    Hope knew God personally, and had influence.
    What seemed impossible before She sat down,
    Became a bearable circumstance.

    i really liked this poem. it was definitely a new twist on describing the sunday morning experience in church. i can see that you have a testimony wrapped up in here. I especially liked the last two lines, powerful.

    To put hope in God will render affective and positive. With faith and charity in our hearts he hears our prayers and needs.

    Thank you for your comment. Often wisdom and hope are described in a female tense in the bible. I made hope a female because she has the ability to produce a living act of hope.
