My God

By Lucy Wall

I’ve been learning over time that there are many misconceptions about Jesus Christ. This became apparent to me through having different conversations with people, reading literature, listening to the media or even from watching television programmes with titles such as ”The History of Christianity .” It seems there are countless misrepresentations of who Jesus is and what it involves to be a follower of Him.

I found myself feeling very saddened and frustrated by this so wanted to write a poem that really drew attention to the differences between “religion” or being “religious” and having a real, loving relationship with the one, true living God. I soon felt inspired to write “My God” as a result.
