New "Words of Inspiration" Poem

Promise He Keeps His Way

One can believe what He does say
Even when it seems impossible
To His promise He will keep His way

Although action taken due dismay
In the mist of this made possible
One can believe what He does say

When he heard His voice he did obey
But the voice of her made transposable
To His promise He will keep His way

Although the impossible one may wait
However in believing and following
One's faith made strong in one's fate

Then the impossible seen in honoring
The promise made in time of past
And to this one delights in wallowing

Because of one's obedience at last
As one believing what He does say
One stayed faithful and steadfast
And to this promise He will keep His way

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapters 12-18. Key Verses 12:1-3 "Now the Lord had said to Abram: "Get out of your country, From your family, And from your father's house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those that bless you, And I will curse those that curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed" (NKJV). Key Verses 15: 3-5 "Then Abram said, "Look you have given me no offspring, indeed one born in my house is my heir!" And behold, the word of the Lord came to him saying, "This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir." Then He brought him outside and said, "Look now toward heaven and count the stars if you are able to number them." And He said to him, "So shall your descendants be" (NKJV). Key Verses 16: 1-2 "Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. And she had an Egyptian maidservant whose name was Hagar. So Sari said to Abram, "See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her". And Abram heeded the voice of Sari"(NKJV). Abram now ninety-nine years old. Key Verses 17: 4-5 "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall you be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you father of many nations" (NKJV). And Sari, now called Sarah is well past childbearing age in her late 80's. Key Verses 18: 10 "And He said, " I will certainly return to you according to this time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son" (NKJV).
