Where's God?

When life explodes like a firecracker in the sky, but with far less beauty and much more fire, where's God?

When facts don't add up and your stomach feels nauseated by decisions that were made by someone else but affect you, where's God?

When problems seem bigger, wider, uglier, costlier, where's God?

When health is fading, barely lurking on this side of heaven, when death seems inevitable, starring down the barely lit eyes of life, where's God?

He's here. He's in the shadows, valleys, unseen moments.
He's here. Deep in the valley trenches, high on the mountaintops
He's here. Carrying the weak, leading the blind, speaking for the mute

He's the healer, of life's greatest disease
He's the hope, of heaven and this tumultuous earth
He's the love, that reaches the greatest and least of these
He's the peace, to war and hate savaged homes and nations
He's the provider, to the shaken, poor and depleted.

He is...He is...He is...HERE.

Thanks for leaving your comment and your kind words. Isn't it comforting to know God has it all under control? Hope whatever brought you to my blog brings you back soon!
