Renewed Hope (poem by me)

(Dedicated to the youth in my Community Bible Study)

For our youth, I had lost all of my hope,
They didn’t know God and didn’t want to,
As for teen Christians, I knew a few,
Were they on fire for the one true God?….. Nope!

They were ashamed of Jesus’ great Name,
Quoting lyrical blasphemy,
Idolizing every celebrity,
Their Goal: praising money and chasing fame.

Then God Almighty led me here to CBS,
My hope is renewed and restored,
These kids have Jesus and call Him “Lord,”
They are slow to sin and quick to confess.

They quote and memorize Bible verses,
beloved and beautiful in my sight,
Shining God’s light so brilliantly bright,
Our future preachers, teachers, and nurses.

God, You are still on Your high holy throne,
You lift up the Lamb sent to the slaughter,
Lord, You came by blood and by water,
You saved us, a remnant to call Your own.

Romans 15:13 says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
