A Lament Poem Written by Clare Chapman
Written by Donna Butler
God’s steadfast love is in everything! From the beginning of time, throughout creation, and even when sparks fly because of friction between any part of humanity/human relationships…HIS steadfast love for us endures forever!
So, what is important to you? What stirs your heart or raises your blood pressure? What distracts you? God’s steadfast love still endures forever! He cares about the small things as well as the big things because He is mindful of us (1 Peter 5:7).
Fix your frame of focus! There’s nothing that can separate us from God’s love (Romans 8:38-39) because His steadfast love endures forever! Whether we are in the light, as He is in the light, or in the dark times when we need a developing process to bring forth the proper perspective, His steadfast love endures forever. Psalm 139:7-18 is an amazing passage that details how much God has loved us from our mother’s womb. But, verse 7 starts out with; “Where can I go to escape Your Spirit? Where can I flee to escape Your presence?” We could be living our best life or sprawled out in our worst nightmare! Even then, His steadfast love endures forever!
We need to stop blaming God for any circumstance we are in! Fix your frame of focus! Whether we are a beautiful blooming plant producing seeds to multiply or a seed that is buried in the dirt with potential to impact the world, it’s His steadfast love that continually waters us. Without Him, we die.

A vice removes the grip of grace
It steals the empowerment to run this race
The wooing and cunning, it draws indeed
Planting a dry harvest with a toxic seed
This vice completely straps the heart
It plays a very strategic part
And you run your life without a chance
Of finishing in the freedom dance
The vice is called ADDICTION undaunted
And it longs to live where you can be haunted
It tugs and pulls and drives the stake
Then lingers like an unwanted drake
But, O’ there IS a God who knows
Your every trial, need, and woe
He longs to lavish His love on you
To set you free- He died for YOU!
The Lord, He is the God who heals
And places you in HIS eternal seal
He WILL restore, He WILL deliver
And wash you in His ABUNDANT RIVER
Give it all to Him dear soul
Let Him take His full control
He’ll set you free from vices strength
And all that has enticed you at length
