And God Said


1 Corinthians 13:12


I said, "Lord, I would love
 to follow you,
but I've so many things
I need to do.
And God said, “Child,
what can you do
that will stand time’s test
once life is through?"




I said, "Lord, I don’t
know what to say.
I try, but just can't
 find time to pray."
And God said, “Child,
be not dismayed;
just pray silently
 throughout your day.“

I said, "Lord, I try
to love this person
but their actions
are so unkind."
And God said, “Child,,
 you needn't love their ways.
Just remember that
they all are mine."


I said, "Lord, if only
you knew what it's like
to live in this
 vale of tears!"
And God said, “Child,
dear Child, but I do.
I was there
 for thirty three years.“

I said, "Lord, if only
you knew how it hurts
to feel abandoned
and even betrayed!"
And God said, “Child,
don't forget Golgotha
and the blood
 that I shed that day!"
 
I said, "Lord, why must
I continually strive
to maintain
the ground I've gained?"
And God said, “Child,
the birth of a thing
is accomplished
 by travail and pain." 

  
I said, "Lord, why is it
the ones I love most
can make me
hurt this way?"
And God said, “Child,
now you know
how my own heart
 breaks each day!“

I said, "Lord, why is it
 that evil's applauded
and good
is overlooked.
   
 God said “Child,
this is nothing new.
Just read a little
 from My Book….
 
"The unjust may prosper
for a little while,
their short time
here on earth.
But eternity is long
and the good will win out,
those who've experienced
new birth…








"Now you can’t see
my overall plan.
You look through
a glass that's dark.
Your eyes aren't equipped
 for such blinding light
but can only
 glimpse a spark….
 
"But one day, Child,
when I return
or when I
call you Home,
you'll have the answers
to all your questions
And you'll know
As you are known!"
