“God has put eternity in our hearts” Eccl. 3:11
“From everlasting to everlasting thou art God” Psalm 90:2.

Hundreds of centuries ago, a Word was spoken.
Void became light. Light and space and earth and seas….
Soon man was formed out of soil and
Out of the heart of God.

Centuries ago, in a garden blessed
Was a man alone, then a women, a snake and a lie.
Now cursed and forsaken the creature roamed
Out of the heart of God.

Centuries ago, a man from Ur
A wandering man, with a wife but no child to whom
A promise was made, in Covenant sealed
Out of the heart of God.

So centuries later, a people like sand
Enslaved and broken, crossed a desert of sand
Seeking a land, a Promised Land spoken
Out of the heart of God.

Centuries pass till a shepherd boy with a faithful heart
Spoke psalms, played a harp and killed many ‘giants’.
Ruled a kingdom from a city birthed
Out of the heart of God.

Centuries would pass, ten centuries all told
When a baby was born, as a Promise foretold
A Savior of all men, to be wounded and scarred
For love from the heart of God.

It was centuries ago when The Son of God
The Lord Jesus Christ, as the Image of God
Shone Light into darkness, reclaiming creation
Back into the heart of God.

Beautiful your words just flow effortlessly.

Wonderful!

There's nothing to critique. You did a fabulous job with weaving in the theme of "centuries" in a poem full of imagery.
