Noah And the Ark


Noah was to build an ark.

 This was God’s plan.

Soon, God would destroy

 every woman and man.


God gave Noah the instructions

 on how to build it.

And told him two of each

 animal would fill it!


Through much labor, sweat and tears…

His family built the ark in one hundred

 and twenty years.


When it was finished, the door was open.

The animals came, as God’s words were spoken!


Noah and his family were to take care of them.

They had gathered food that

 they shared with them.


Then the rains came for 40 days and 40 nights.

The whole earth was covered

 from the rain’s might!


The ark came to rest on the top of a mountain…

The rains stopped, like a “dry fountain.”


God put a rainbow in the sky as a promise.

Nevermore would he send rain to destroy us!


May this ark by a reminder to all of us…

Through life’s storms, God will take care of us!


God blesses those who earnestly seek him!

Won’t you be like Noah and receive him?

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!
