Creator We Love


 Jesus is Lord above
Almighty God is He
Creator we love. 
We are His sheep.

We shall not be afraid
Of the demons or dark;
He by Whom all was created
Lives within our heart.

So we love Him;
The One up in the sky,
Who fills our hearts within.
We’re the apple of His eye.

He loves you, too!
Lord and King is He
New Life He has for you 
Come over and see!

-- C.V., girl, age 4 (revised by Daddy)

My daughter, C.V., who is now age 14, has written most of the poems on this site. At age four, she would sing songs that she had made up on her own.  One of them was this one (above), which I've titled “Creator We Love.” I rediscovered it in my notes, and liked it.  So I decided to revise it and publish it.  Obviously I took great liberty in my revisions, but the Lord was the one who inspired her with it.  Some of the original words were:

"Jesus is the Lord of all Creation. He is God. We are His sheep, and He is the Lord.  We are not gonna be afraid of the dark.  Creator we love.   We have Jesus in our heart,  so we love Him.  He is in our heart.   Up in the sky, He loves you, He loves you.  Come over and see."  Charity would still like you to come over and see how wonderful new life in Christ really is.

Scriptural basis:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. (Joh 1:1-3 NASB)

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.  (Col 1:16-17 NASB)

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.  (Joh 3:16 NASB)

For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.   (Psa 95:7a NASB)

Author's note The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."  The "All God's Children" painting © 2012 is by Danny Hahlbohm, all rights reserved by the artist. Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
