The God Void

Life was mute Few rainbows.
And there were only puny, fleeting sunsets.
No time to notice anything, too many goals.
Too busy - Numb to loves ever-flowing rhythm.
Trees and flowers swayed, giving beauty to each day.
So what?
Gods perfect truth, His essence Was a distant myth.
My frozen granite heart knew better.
Life was for self, snatching moments, surviving.
The entire world cannot comfort one heart void of hope.
So what?
Busyness is foolishness More unstable than whirlwinds.
Worse even than plain falsity, wherein dwells the Devil.
Funny - The evil one knew me well enough to swear he'd won me with his shiny dime.
So What?
So everything - At least according to the Lord.
The One God, Almighty - The author of it all - Creator extraordinaire!
He sent his answers well before I asked for them.
Turns out that I'm more precious than Id ever dreamt - Jesus told me so.
Why did He care so much that he could not abide my anguish?
Why indeed?
Why had my God claimed me? If ever there was a good reason to ask, "Why me?" I know none better.
But claim me he did - His own, from the very first - Never to be lost again!
Remarkable!
He sweetly sailed thru every grief, searched me, and still He took me to Himself.
A place beyond rainbows, beyond sunsets, and far past shiny dimes.
Thank God!
Thank God for His perfect love, which sweetens all of life.
Its music plays a chorus within all hearts to hear.
Eyes see each sight and sound beam bright with promise.
And Grace and mercy transform all who would come
Yes, even you - If you only will draw near!



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Toni, some of your beginning lines remind one of the disillusionment of the writer of Ecclesiastes. Good message in this poem. ~ Violet

Well done Toni! I really liked your style in this. It was more like a narration than a simple poem and that fit the mood of it so well. Only one tiny thing, I think "shiny" only has one "n". :-) With love, Deb
