A Genie In the Lamp?

 God is often treated as;
  "a genie in the lamp"
Many expect him to heal
 every "hurt" and "cramp."
Some command; "be healed." 
Seeking his power.
Expecting him to answer
within the hour.
Praying according to
Accepting his will for our life...
his will...  Isn\'t wrong!
 Will make us strong!
Without Christ...  We Are nothing!
Nothing at all!
He knows our needs
Whether they\'re huge or small.
Allow Jesus to be Lord of
your life right now.
Come before him
and humbly bow...
Allow him to increase your faith.
And help you to know.
By his blood and word...
You can be made whole!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
