There are things that I see…
A tornado killed 14 people while they slept in their bed
A virus outbreak left thousands dead
Gas is expensive
Homes are cheap, yet sit unsold
Pollsters and pundits and other lies told
A woman watches as the uniformed men approach
With a child on her hip and one in her groin,
She falls to her knees
Wonders how will she do it alone.
It seems so unfair…
How could it be?
“Where is your God” she yells
Where is that savior?
Eternal perspectives seem trite in the face of pain
But there are things that I know….
The hand extended,
The people who pick up debris,
The doctors who aid,
The clerk who smiles
The men who continue to fight
Even when they lose a friend.
Yes there are things that I know
Even when I do not see
God is Good.
God is Merciful.
God is Gracious.
God is Just
But fair was never part of the equation
If it were
Why the Tree?
We live by Faith not by Sight.
