Not every now and then

Every now and then

I stop and think how God intervened

how He rescued

how He healed

Every now and then

I close my eyes and smile

I think of His unfailing Love

His mercies

which come from above

Every now and then

I look at the birds, skies and seas

His glory can truly be seen

Every now and then

He touches, embraces

kisses me gently

He tells me I’m loved

I’m beautiful

I’m wonderfully made

It is He who created me

Every now and then

I glimpse at the heavens

I search for his presence

I search the Bible

I race to church

Then he nudges me

He whispers softly

“Not every now and then,

Not every so often


Search for me within your heart

for that’s where I’ll always be.”

Poem inspired by the following scriptures:

1. “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”  1 Corinthians 3:16

2. “But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:1‭-‬2 NIV

Today’s Prayer

Father, thank you for chasing me with your goodness. Thank you for always rescuing me in times of weakness. Lord, there are times when I may lose my faith in you; times when I may feel you are not near. Lord, nudge me gently, remind me that your spirit dwells within me. Lord, fill me with your perfect strength today. Fill me with your perfect love. I need you God today and every day.

May God richly bless you 🙂

    1. Thank you for reading. God is always on time for his people. The post was published by “mistake”, was hoping to add a bit more to it. I now know it was published the right time! God bless you my sister.


  2. Such a beautiful poem my sister. I’ve often wondered why I find myself running away from Goď’s presence just to spend time all up in my feelings. Forever thankful that He never stops chasing me down to draw me back. x


    1. Thank you for reading my sister. I do this sometimes and find myself running back to him. It’s wonderful to know that we have a God who just keeps giving and is always ready to welcome us with arms wide open. Have a blessed weekend my sister.
