How close you are to the broken.

How near you are to the lonely.

How present you are to those who are lost.

How real you are to those who question.

 

The way that you move God,

The methods that you employ,

The tactics and plans that you have,

Are strange and most bizarre.

 

To be close to those undeserving,

To be near the unpopular,

To be most present to those that are not on the path,

To be most real to those that are not sure…

 

Why do you act this way, God?

Why do you live like this?

Why do you throw yourself at the least?

Why do you toss your love around without care?

 

But it isn’t without care,

For that is all that you are.

Care, concern, love in all of its labels.

You are and show it relentlessly.

 

To those that think they deserve so much,

To those who are keenly aware of their worth,

To those without a clue,

You love.

 

The way that you move God,

The methods that you employ,

Are strange and most bizarre,

Yet I will marvel at this grace.

 

How close you are to the broken.

How near you are to the lonely.

How present you are to those who are lost.

How real you are to those who question.

  1. How real? as real as the air I breathe, as life is sustained to each, without this air, not one would be alive here today.
    As the wind blows, and comes upon anyone, whether seeing truth from Father or not. each has their chance to turn to beleif in his love and mercy of Son for us to get new life in his risen Life for each person that believes and does not give up even in adversities. Sees, in Father’s Spirit and Truth timing for each person. So stand even in and through any and all adversities, this does not mean one has to not cry or be upset. Just find a place to safely vent, your being hurt, harmed and beat up. Stand and say go ahead beat me, hrt me, make me a believer in the resurrected Jesus where Father give us each new life to stand in.

    Amazing, have we forgotten Father to be praised?

    I know Satan comes, came to earth to deceive as many as can. For it states he come as an angel of light, along with his minions too.
