Questionable Quests

Questionable Quests


I have seen Your foot prints, heavy in the sand

Of, when I was faint, You carried me in Your hands

And when my heart was filled, with doubt and uncertainty

Again You came in and once again You lifted me.



You are always there, when ever I fall or slip

And You always calm the storms or right my sinking ship

Yet, I seem to pursue or search, for the questionable things

And I seem to dispute the value, Your Most Precious brings



The accuracy of my expeditions; I have not pursued

And the quest for Your Treasure; I had never knew

For my life was a questionable journey; to obtain or to achieve

But my most adventurous effort; is when I first believed

Dear Irv

Thank you for such a wonderful poem but I have a question to ask. Don't you love us anymore? You don't bless us with your poems a lot and I miss your poems. I have all your poems stored and plan to frame them and display them in my study. Reading your poem, I remembered this beautiful verse from the Bible;
Psalm 145
David's Psalm of praise. I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
Psa 145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
Psa 145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
Psa 145:4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
Psa 145:5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
Psa 145:6 And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.
Psa 145:7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.
Psa 145:8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
Psa 145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
Psa 145:10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.
Psa 145:11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;
Psa 145:12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.
Psa 145:13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
Psa 145:14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.
Psa 145:15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.
Psa 145:16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
Psa 145:17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.
Psa 145:18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
Psa 145:19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
Psa 145:20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.
Psa 145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

God bless you and your family

Questionable Quests

Thank you Daniel for your comments and to answer your question; I have been working on other projects, along with combing through the Scriptures for answers to personal questions concerning the possible relocation of my church and the resignation of our Pastor. As you know, we are electing a new President and political and economic questions also infiltrate my time; I turned into a miserable wreck and I had to find my path back to exactly where God wanted me. This is my first poem since I let go of the steering wheel and allowed God to drive. Thank you again for your encouraging Scriptures, blessing to you and your family, Irv.
