Consider not your circumstances, instead consider God
and as you consider Him,
consider His staff and rod.
Consider the one who was faithful, now sitting at God's right hand. Consider not your problems
but on His promise firmly stand.
Consider the greatness of God.
Creator of Heaven and earth.
Consider Jesus Christ,
His Son Divine, consider His sacred birth.
A note from Allison regarding this poem:
This beautiful poem was written by one of the sweetest, most unassuming people, I've had the pleasure to meet. When I heard this poem, I had to post it -- I wanted to share the heart of a person who has loved God for a long time, but probably never once considered themselves someone capable of sharing those feelings in a way that others would be moved by or encouraged through. Well today, my friend, you have done just that!! You are so beautiful, kind and inspiring. May God continue to speak through you & bless you abundantly in your walk with Him!
