Alpha and Omega;The Great I Am

Politics aside, there is much more to me. I am passionate about many things and those are the things which sustain me.

The Great I Am

First, words

Usually for me, when writing articles and definitely when writing poetry - the words come first and then anything else, such as a link, an article, music, etc. which might be called for or is in order, will be sought.

When it comes to music, a certain song will usually come to mind, while in the process of formatting and tweaking the content.

If not, but I still feel something is missing, I will go on the hunt, until the perfect song is found.

Once a particular song has come to mind or has been found, which seems to go hand-in-hand with the words/the content/the theme, it will make its way into the article or the poem, whichever the case may be, hopefully bringing the completion desired.

So, first, words, which, incidentally, I must write down somewhere immediately, especially if I am not in a position to be taking it straight to an article or a poem; otherwise, they will be lost to me forever

The gist of what I want to say will still be present, but if I cannot recall the exact words that have come to mind, making sure they are instantly replicated to paper, I'll just be left frustrated. Sometimes, I'll not even bother on following through.

All of that said, to say this:

However, in the case of this particular poem, I heard a song, which I have heard countless times before, only this time, it hit me as it has never before, as if I was hearing the words of the song, for the very first time and then in turn, my words, in rhyme, began to flow.

Once completed, I was left with this thought; is this meant for me or is it meant for someone else?

God only knows, but if you feel it's meant for you, it probably is!

But, whether you think it was meant for you or not, I pray that the message and the songs included, might be a blessing to you:

God Only Knows...

The Great I Am

Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,

My comforter, my Savior, my Father and my friend

No other gods before me, no other way will do

The written word sustains me, and my Faith, will see me through,

this crazy thing called life and all which that entails

No matter that I will undoubtedly stumble, God's love never fails

My refuge through sadness, through personal struggles, through pain

To gain the riches of the world and not have faith - isn't close to gain

I could search this whole world over and never find greater love

The purest unconditional love, comes from our Heavenly Father above

Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,

My comforter, my Savior, my Father and my friend

Father God on high, the Great I Am, meeting lowly me, right where I stand

No other way, earthly things can't last, they quickly fade, like sinking sand

It is where I choose, to place all my trust

For all that is good and for all that is just

Imperfect me, a work in progress, not any different than you,

with the Lord as my Shepherd, I, like you, am just doing my best, as I travel through

I'm only human, I sometimes forget, I get angry, I mess up, and I push God away

Fortunately for me and for you, our Heavenly Father is consistent and only knows to stay

Alpha and Omega; Father, Spirit, Son

God Almighty, THE GREAT I AM, hallelujah, the battle has already been won!

Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,

My comforter, my Savior, my Father and...my friend

No other gods before me, no other way will do

I am adequately sustained, my Faith, it sees me through
