The father of a certain bride
From sins always did hide

No sign of anxiety was seen
Although he looked very lean

He saw the couple in walk way
Thought, ‘My family life began this way’

His wife and he cherished similar feeling
When like a movie their life kept reeling

Twenty five years of being together
Still with first love they care for each other

Together they knelt for anything
For they knew God is their everything

Thus far through life’s thick and thin
Their marriage vow never reached trash bin

A family life of exemplary example
With mighty acts of God in ample

Threefold cord is not quickly broken
Husband and wife in Christ are not shaken

Believers of the Trinity are never forsaken
For there’s found plenty of gift tokens

Granted free for receiving many packs
Of unconditional love to load each other’s sacks

Thousand guests for dinner were invited
But more than thousand had arrived

His face, depicts no worry in any form
To handle this unexpected storm

“Dear Lord! This situation is mind-boggling
That I cannot quite think of solving

Unless You perform a miracle,
I cannot stand on the faith hill’s pinnacle”

Silently he shot a request upward
Expecting a miracle downward

Like calmness after an abated storm
Was his mind, above all like Gilead balm

God will surely supply my need
My guests He will truly feed

And make them all feel gay
On this very auspicious day

His faith like that of a mustard seed
With prayers offered in the hour of need

Made massive mental mountains move
And manifested the power of God’s love

Although perturbed one may seem
In such sitautions, supernatural power does gleam

Like a rainbow after a shower
Righteous find shelter in God – a tower

Today, are you in such a tight corner
That’s causing problems to your honour?

“No one can understand my agony
I am the only one in great difficutly.”

Is that the frame of your mind?
Allowing you no ways to find

Permit no questions that causes thrust
But on the One called ‘Wonderful’ put your trust

Your troubles be it big or small
They’ll fall like the Jericho wall

Banana leaflets just multiplied
As guests with dinner were served

The caterer being wonder-struck
Quaked this incident to friends like a duck

God keeps those in perfect peace
Even in fretful situations, they’re at ease

May God alone be your part
Trust Him with all your heart

No more enduring mental pain
For faith in Him never goes in vain

His works are exceedingly great
Always above and beyond your estimate

To God who alone does great wonders
Be glory for His mercy endures forever

I'm not a poet but I enjoyed this sweet poem. I'm not sure if I followed it completely, but I did get an overall sense of calmness and depending on God. I loved the images of the couple who stuck together and always turned to God. Nice job. Keep writing. Blessings.

Wow! Is this a true story? You have some good rhyming pairs (thick and thin/reached trash bin and feeling/reeling).


This couplet struck a chord with me, "Your troubles be it big or small. They’ll fall like the Jericho wall." I really like it.
