it is no surprise this world is in such a mess-
when evil is rewarded and the diligent attacked
when life is thrown away like an old hamburger wrapper
and those who disturb the peace have favor over peacemakers…
when nations value the senseless slaughter of children
and wickedness grows like mold and mildew, staining the land.
what promise holds true for the orphan, the widow, the lonely
when he or she is ignored, but repression is a certain future?
the repression of dreams, of hopes, of living life to the fullest
because those entrusted with the Word have failed to focus,
bogged down in the trenches of a decaying bond of trust?
when the land flows red with the memory of many murders
and stilled hearts cry out from the mist of the living Earth,
where are the ones called to go and worship the King daily
walking through the corridors of despair, dragging the poor
from the very gutters imposed by the minions of hell?
it is a frightful thing to be in the hands of an Almighty God
in a time when some of the faithful have become fearful
but He is calling His children to a walk of faith and trust
that follows His footsteps and no other trail
and that is the only way to survive
the evil of this world.
