When God Steps Back.......

Fleeing from the light,
you dislike the rules.
So you hide
in this world of cruel?

A miserable and sinful place when you fall,
Too many cares, or none at all.

You cry out, "Oh Lord, please help me now!" When you can't get through the crowds.

You're tired, and trapped!
You are hungry, and scared!
miserable, hurting.
But no one to help you is there?

You are lifted up high!
By who, but God?
Who saves the wicked, who below his level lie.

He wipes off the dirt!
He clothes all the wounds.
You're no longer hurt!

God lifts you up and God puts you down,
But when he steps back,
and no one's around?

Cry out to him, reader!
apologize for your wicked ways!
Then go read your Bible and see what it says....

Sorry sounds generic; I don't mean to be rude, but I must be honest. I would make a good greeting card but it isn't prolific or in any way spiritually provocative.

I do have a strong faith! :) I don't think it's bad to ask for things, unless it's something petty. Thanks for taking the time to read it!!

You seem to have such strong faith...
I tend to regard God as a friend but I don't usually want to bother him with my problems.
I think this piece carries a really good message -- one that I might start to follow...
