~+~ The Trinity ~+~


Photobucket

"What is a trinity?" she quizzed,
Anxious for my reply.
A typical five-year-old
Asking who, what, when, and why.

bar-Cross

"Trinity simply means three,"
I was real quick to confide.
"Does this mean there are three Gods?"
She opened that door wide!

bar-Cross

"No, of course not," I explained
But knowing full well I had not.
I just knew I had to try...
Had to give this one my best shot.

bar-Cross

"The Lord our God is One God.
He isn't two or three.
He's the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost...
A most blessed Trinity.

bar-Cross

He's like time in different forms
And we do know time is one.
We're living in the present now
But the future's soon to come."

bar-Cross

"Like tomorrow?" she joined in.
"Yes, and yesterday's the past.
Time goes on and on and on
And God will always last.

bar-Cross

Now we can separate it
But we can't take time apart.
Like the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Are unified in heart.

bar-Cross

Each have separate ministries
But God's substance can't be changed.
Just like time's a trinity
That can't be re-arranged.

bar-Cross

God is different in His offices
Yet He's very much the same.
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Are composites of His Name."

bar-Cross

"I'm not sure I understand,"
She confessed when I was done.
"Guess I'll wait until I'm older
But I'm glad the Lord is One."

bar-Cross

Bending to pick up her kitten
I heard her whisper in its ear,
"Do you know where Jesus lives?"
Pointed to her heart, "Right here."

Be Blessed,
Doris Jacobs-Covington

"Children are a gift from God."
Psalm 127:3
 
Rabbits beget rabbits
Horses beget horses
Humans beget humans
God begets God.
C.S. Lewis
 


"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God, and the communion
of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Amen." 2 Corinthians 13:14
