Pondering on the breakup – I believe in God

I almost said
This affair is over
I almost said
I cannot do it anymore:

I wanted to turn my back on Him
And go back to where I was coming from
Yes I knew life without Him is hell
But then I assumed accepting my fate could see me through;

But the circumstance
Opened my eyes
To see that I did not love Him
As much as I professed
Nor as much as He loved me,
Then I saw clearly
That my foundation was not solidly built on Him;

I suddenly realized why my relationships failed:
When the going was good
It was easy to love so much
But at the smell of a trial
I walked away;

I quickly forgot the good times we shared
How much He blessed me
How He saved my life
How He has given me a second chance
How much He loves me
That not even my flaws could separate me from His love;

So as I pondered on the breakup
I recalled those times when I stumbled and fell
When I sinned over and over
Especially the same sins I had prayed about
And when I thought there was no hope for me
His Grace was made perfect in my weakness

Whilst pondering on the breakup
He saved me from an accident
Reminding me that He was not yet done with me
That I will live to overcome the trial

Still pondering on the breakup
My life 2 years ago flashed before me
I could have sworn it was not the same person
If not for the mark on my forehead
That reminds me only God can save a baby
Who fell off a 3-storey building

So I knelt down beside my bed
And wept
Cursing the source of such thoughts
Yet making my resolve
That I will love Him whether good or bad
That I will not stop praising and trusting Him
That I will continue to build my foundation on Him;

My Sweet, Loving God and Father
This love affair is forever
Because
I believe in God.

Rita said...

My dearest people, i've been away...and I still am...everything is okay. Will soon be back to blogville.

Just had to put up this post because I do believe in God.

Take care you all.

@Jaycee: I fell off the stairs of a 3-Storey building when I was about 2 years old. The doctors said my brains would be destroyed, if I survive it. Here I am today alive and with a normal-functioning brain. If you check my profile pix, you may see where they stitched my forehead. My skull is still indented after all these years.

WELCOME BACK! Nice poem by the way. First thought you were talking about your hubby, I was so getting nervous and then I realised you were talking about God and I just loved it. I mean its comforting to know that even people of faith have fleeting moments of doubt once in a while.
Wow, its funny, I fell off a swing set when I was like 5 and then 2 years later I fell into a gutter at the same spot. So I still kinda have the mark till today. Hmmmm. Have an excellent week and I am so glad you are back.

I BELIEVE IN GOD ALMIGHTY

just wonderin wat life will be without GOD....meaningless ! yes thats wat


hello Rita

rita said...

wow !
awesom GOD ,
u no ur story made me remember an incident that happened when i was about 10yrs

robbery attacks where becomin rampant in my area then, as a form of defence against their attacks, some guys organised for and got a small can of acid....this was hidden some place out of reach

i never knew....few days later, i 'climbed' and brought the acid down, called my younger sis to come for a hair wash since i was playin the stylist, she wasted too much time in comin , b4 which i sprayed some on the floor, when she came i was already pissed off, i left the can there and walked off,

GOD caused my sis to 'delay'the hair wash, caused me not to wash my hands with the 'water'and caused us to move away completly until an adult came along to notice the white stains and crackin o the ground.....

wat else can i say?

HE IS A WONDER !!! and of course i BELIEVE !

NigerianDramaQueen said...

Rita, I have missed you. I trust all is well.

This was beautiful. I needed to read these words:

"That I will love Him whether good or bad
That I will not stop praising and trusting Him
That I will continue to build my foundation on Him"

I needed that right now. Yes, I believe in God too. Jaycee just wrote a similar post, you should check it out.

Thank you.

Finally Rita's back. I know it's cliche now but trust me, you have been very 'muchly' missed (Pardon my grammar use). Nice poem by the way. The 'Believers' club' is definitely getting bigger by the day.

When I turned my back
on the sun
Next morning there it was
blazing in my face.

He remains faithful!
