Topic: Evangelism (11/01/07)

TITLE: Glory to God in the Highest
By Verna Cole Mitchell


The morning sun awakens to
Announce that day is here.
Godís in control of everything;
We have no need to fear.

The rivers and the waterfalls
Race lakes down to the sea,
Declaring as they rush along
Godís might and majesty.

The rustle of the leaves praise God
With whispers from the wind.
To laud their great Creatorís skill,
The trees in honor bend.

The flowers breathe out sweet perfume
To worship in their way
With colors, bold and beautiful,
In wonderful array.

The mountains also do their part
To make Godís presence known.
Through lofty peaks of loveliness
His grandeur there is shown.

The sunset introduces night
In golden pinks and blues,
Presenting handiwork of God
In awesome pastel hues.

The firmament of stars reveals
That God is over all.
He never falters, never fails.
He hears us when we call.

The hosts of angels magnify
The greatness of Godís name,
With "Hallelujah to the King!
Heís holy!Ē they proclaim.

The ministers in pulpits preach
That we can be sin-free,
For Jesus died upon the cross
And rose in victory.

The ones who teach in Sunday School
Tell stories of Godís love,
So little ones can learn the truth
Of God who dwells above.

The Christian neighbor takes a meal
To someone whoís in need.
She represents the hands of God
With hungry souls to feed.

The missionaries give the news:
Salvationís from the Lord.
For all of those who Gospel spread,
In heaven thereís reward.

The Bible tells us of Godís plan
That we might realize:
The role of nature, angels, man
Is to evangelize.

The title could not be a more perfect way to describe the wonderful acts and fruit evangelism brings. So comprehensive and well written.

You organized your thoughts so well, and it is beautifully rhymed. Glory to God in the highest for the tremendous talent He has given you!

My favorite stanza is the last one, which could stand on its own as a precious mini-sermon. The rest of this is lovely, too!
Kristen Hester11/13/07
Everyone and Everything should point others to Christ. God's creation does. We should, too. I loved the message of this poem. You are a gifted poet.

Oh, Verna! This is absolutely beautiful! It just thrilled my soul as I randomly chose this poem and read those wonderful images of nature and how the earth praises God and tells His story. And the ending, when you drove home the point about our need to evangelize,..well, it just touched my heart deeply. It is so true. What a blessing this poem is, and what a blessing YOU are!
