Sharing inspirational poems is a great way to encourage a friend. This original piece of poetry is inspirational and spiritual in nature. You can rest assured that God wants all to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. God has a plan for YOUR life.
This Christian poem reminds us that before the world was even created, God had a Plan of Salvation worked out for each one of us.
The Bible is a natural source for inspiration and inspirational poems.
"Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. Ephesians 1:4-5 NLT
"For He spoke, and it came to be; He commanded and it stood firm."
Psalm 39:9 NIV
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lords is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28 NIV
"For God, who said, "Let there be light in the darkness," has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ." 2 Corinthians 4:6 NLT
An Inspirational View Of God's Creation
All along God knew, His Creation would never hold true;
Yet He spoke, it became, each day was perfection anew.
Out of the clay He created a man, Adam was his name.
Plus a woman to help him -- Eve, then came from his frame.
All along God knew, The Garden of Eden would not last;
That in it sin would be born, and from it, His children outcast.
But God had a plan, involving His Son; He called it Salvation.
It would involve everyone born, all His future creation.
All along God knew, when the timing was just right;
Virgin Mary, would birth Jesus, His Son, one crystal-clear night.
God's Son, true man and true God, was the plan to redeem us.
He preached, He healed, He loved sinners, what a plus.
All along God knew, it was His plan, His price, His guarantee;
That Jesus would complete the task, and His children set free.
All along God knew, the price of His wrath would be fully paid
By His Son, beaten, thorn crowned, on a crucifix displayed.
Jesus hung on that cross for hours, slowly suffering 'til death came.
He bore for us the agony, the bitter rejection, the horrible shame.
God knew there was but one more obstacle to be overcome.
Death could have no victory, could not hold us ransom.
God planned the Fabulous Finish....the price paid in full.
God raised His Son Jesus! From death's grip He did pull.
What a Glorious Morning! An empty tomb was the place
Where God knew for certain, His Plan, He'd call....GRACE.

The cross stands as a symbol of God's gift of Grace through
Am I Enough?
I wake and look at myself
To begin another dreary day.
The mirror tells no lies, and says
Hmm... worn out, wrinkled, gray.
I think about my entire life.
What accomplishments have I?
The worldly goods surrounding me,
Can I take them when I die?
No, this life is never enough
To satisfy my ego and my will.
Each day I find less of myself
That brings satisfaction fulfilled.
I sound just like King Solomon,
"Meaningless! Utterly meaningless.
There is nothing new under the sun."
I wrestle with my aimlessness.
Is there nothing new to be done?
Then one day someone shared with me
The gracious message of the cross.
That Jesus takes away my sin.
Gives worth and value to the lost.
"Remain in Me; I will remain in you,"
Said the Savior to my heart.
My life now has new meaning,
Plus a Promise from the start.
No matter how old or sick or dull
I become, the Promise is for sure.
Through Christ I am fully forgiven.
The Great Physician -- He's my Cure.
From sin and mediocrity I've been lifted,
From a life disappointing and rough.
Jesus loves me and always reminds me
That in Him, I am more than enough.

Sometimes I feel like this empty chair -- abandoned and all alone;
Discarded, deserted, all used up, and weary to the bone.
This empty chair is faded, the fabric -- used and torn;
To me, it looks sad and lost and completely forlorn.
I know there is a story behind this lonely, vacant chair.
The story is my life; years have passed, but at one time, I was there.
I was alone and sad, filled with memories that held much pain.
My teenage son had died, suddenly, and God did not explain.
It's hard for me to remember that God's the Potter, and I the clay;
But He reminds me, He still loves me; On His path I walk each day.
For God alone shapes me into the vessel He will need
To touch the lives of others with His Love on which they feed.
This used up chair has taught me now -- has given me perspective.
Don't focus only on the loss, but look at God's directive.
God says for us to trust Him, and trust Him with all our heart;
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will do His part.
One other thing that I have learned from this deserted chair
Is to look around and see all the blessings still there.
The sun, the sand, the sea and the azure sky above
Are all delightful promises of God's never-ending love.
Focus on the positive; remember Jesus promises to bless
Those who remain in Him, His name to love and confess.
