God’s Toolbox
By: Susan Y Nikitenko 2010

My daddy had a toolbox;
Filled with his pride and joy.
Every little tool he had;
To him it was his toy.

If you took one out;
You’d better put it back.
Or you’d get a spankin’;
But love he didn’t lack.

I would often help him;
Though, I am a girl.
Then, when he was finished;
He’d swing me in a whirl.

I would, just, giggle happily.
I loved my daddy so.
Everywhere my daddy went;
I would want to go.

Our Father, has a toolbox.
It’s filled with special tools.
Each one has a job to do;
The tool, it could be you.

Each tool to Him is special;
For, if He looses one.
He will not stop searching;
Until the search is done.

Because, all tools are unique;
And needed for His work.
When He has a job to do;
He uses me and uses you.

Perhaps, you are the hammer;
Perhaps, you are the nails.
All important in His sight;
To get the job, done right.

God’s toolbox is the church;
Filled with His precious tools.
Each one special, everyone;
To get His purpose done.

Be a willing little tool.
In our Father’s Box.
When He chooses you;
For a certain job to do.

And when you please our Father;
Just as, me, my daddy too.
God will send you blessings.
When your job is through.

This would be good as a piano solo. 
A storytelling piano solo or - guitar

It does not have a Chorus

We are Unique 

The story in this poem is partly fictional,
sometimes it was a hug or just a nice word.
But my daddy loved me and all His children.
All my poems with stories both real and fictional
designed to illustrate a biblical truth.

We are tools in God's toolbox;
We seek his attention.
Each are valuable to God.
A unit that works as one.

1Corinthians 12:14-18

For the body is not one member, but many.
If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.


Father in this poem means our heavenly Father.

Like as in the prayer "our Father who art in heaven."

Bible Reading
Psalms 119: 123- 176

Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.
 It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.
 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.
. Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.
Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful. My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.  Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.  
 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.
Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.  The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
 I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy statutes.
 I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.  
I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word.
 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.
 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD, quicken me according to thy judgment.
 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law.
Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.
Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.
. Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.
 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.
Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.
 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to thy judgments. 
Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.
I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.
 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
 I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.
Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.
Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.  
 LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.
 My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.
 I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee.
Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word.
 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.
My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.
 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.
Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.
I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.
Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.
 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.

1 John 4:3 
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
2 John 1:7 
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Mark 13:22
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
