Old Testament Advent Poem No. 7

Old Promises New Realities

Then Isaiah said, “Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of humans? Will you try the patience of my God also?  Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7: 13 & 14

To be slow to believe

and hard to hear

is not a new thing.

Human hearts

are not soft to

God’s miraclesXmas '[pems

and promises.

In turmoil

God pointed to hope

a King

defeater of enemies.

When all is dark

and the gloom descends


a child was born,

promises fulfilled,

a King delivered.

  1. “I find the older I get the more reflective I become.” Perhaps, this is a sign of maturity. “A wicked man puts up a bold front, but an upright man gives thought to his ways.” Prov. 21:29 NIV 1984.

  2. With age, comes the wisdom of refection…to look back and remember what He did for us.
