God is great, God is good. Youíve heard that statement almost since infancy. Have you ever asked yourself whatís so great about God? Well, Iíll answer that question for you. The God I love loves me back. The God I serve does much more than serve me in return. My God provides for my every need and even some of my wants. He provides me with a guidebook, the bible, his holy and anointed word. All I have to do is follow the path that he has laid out before me. He ordered my footsteps long ago and watches over me each second of every day. He guards me as I sleep; he goes before each step I take. He is my guide and my map. He is the compass that points toward home, my eternal home that he built with his hands and heart. I serve a great and mighty God, full of strength and power. He never slumbers; he never forgets where I am, even when it seems I am at my darkest, his light shines forth like a beacon calling me home. He is the foundation on which I stand and it will never shake or break loose, even when the world around me is rattled to its very core with strife and discord or loneliness and fear. He does special things too, that show how much he loves me, such as sending the rain to cool the temperature when my air conditioner freezes up and has to be turned off and there is no money to get it repaired. He paints the sunset with wide strokes of bright oranges and tints of red. He knows my favorite color is red. He speaks to me in the gentle rain and caresses my downcast face with the fingers of his soft breeze. I ask again, what is so great about God? Simply this: He turned his face from his only son, so he could embrace me and you for eternity. No greater love has ever been displayed.

Sounds like you've come to know our GREAT God through some personal trials! Your piece would be so much easier on the eyes with some paragraph breaks:)

You have a very effective use of repetition with the "He is..." statements. Consider making each of those the beginning sentence of a paragraph which expands on each attribute.

You've got some great imagery in here! Wonderful message too!

Beautiful!

Amen! Keep writing. Would have had much more impact with paragraph breaks and white space
