“God Knows” by Joan Y. Edwards


“God Knows” by Joan Y. Edwards 

In 2012, after I received an email with Lil Phoenix poem entitled “Ten Things God Won’t Ask on THAT Day:” I decided to put a different spin to it. God already knows the answers. I posted this on a different blog of mine in 2012. I thought you might enjoy it here. 

God Knows

“God Knows” by Joan Y. Edwards

  1. God knows what kind of car you drive. He loves it when you drive people who don’t have transportation.
  2. God knows how big your house is.  Joy fills his heart when you welcome others into your home.
  3. God knows how many clothes are in your closet. He rewards you when you help put clothes on others.
  4. God knows how much money you make. He increases it when you share it with others.
  5. God knows your job title. He helps you rise higher when you do your job to the best of your ability.
  6. God knows how many friends you have. He smiles each time you act friendly toward other people, even if they don’t act friendly toward you.
  7. God knows the neighborhood where you live. He is proud of all that you do your part to keep it safe, clean, neat, and orderly.
  8. God knows the color of your skin. He is happy when you treat others with respect, regardless of their skin color.
  9. God knows your strengths and weaknesses.  He celebrates when you accept yourself and others as you are and choose to follow in His footsteps.
  10. God knows how many people you meet on His path. He rejoices when you take time to encourage others on their trails  He loves you very much.

  3. How beautiful these thoughts, Joan. I might borrow this to read when it’s my turn to do devotions at my women’s group.
