A Poem About Joseph

Shocked by the news;
his bride is
pregnant.

Convinced by what he sees;
she  has been
defiled.

Determined to be kind,
he will divorce her
quietly.

Visited in a dream,
by an angel with
good news.

The child in her womb
will be named
Jesus.

He will save
his
people from
their
sins.

Rising from sleep,
Joseph’s mind is
changed.

No matter what
he will raise the
child.

Matthew 1:18-25

  1. Well done sir. Joseph was a gentleman. Then again, he would have gotten struck by lightning if he would have done otherwise. 🙂

    very nice Matt! (I ate the comma again)

  2. I think we tend to overlook Joseph’s side of the story and what God did in him. I wrote about it last year after God took me through a journey and pointed out that Joseph displayed incredible faith as well.

    Great poem man!
