[When I was in college seminary, we students sometimes made snide comments about “Hallmark Theology,” which was something easy to understand, syruppy sweet, memorable, and small enough to fit on a greeting card. Now that I am older, wiser, and a lot less cynical, I actually enjoy some hallmark theology. Of course, as with choosing greeting cards, time and care are needed in the selection process. This poem is part of a collection of poems with the same title and was written by Linda E. Knight.]
When God Is All You’ve Got, You’ve Got More Than Enough
God is your stronghold,
and with Him as your guide,
you need never be afraid.
No circumstances can block His love.
No grief is too hard for Him to bear.
No task is too difficult
For Him to complete.
When what you are feeling
Is simply too deep for words
And nothing anyone does or says
Can provide you with the relief you need,
He is your provider —
Today, tomorrow, and always. And He loves you.
Cast all of your cares on Him…
— Linda E. Knight
