Is God Real

 

Many times I did say

no more will I write.

I did say all I can say,

and still have not said

what I meant. And yet,

here I am again.

Compulsion.

 

To the point:

Is God real?

Real as a meal

Served so genteel,

Much more appeal

Less material

More mercurial

Very genial

To the ecclesial.

More so:

Brilliant as lightning

Dark as a black hole

Hard as nails

Soft as summer rain.

God Is.

To to put it more prim

You will meet Him.

Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. Heb. 9:27-28

The destiny of all. By God’s sovereign appointment for all.

 

~G.W.

  1. A favorite hymn, “I Know Whom I Have Believed” was among the first I learned to play on the piano from a hymnal. My kids heard me singing it so much, they started singing it in their own interpretation of words their young minds couldn’t yet comprehend. I wonder if it’s like that for us believers in general, reading and hearing and doing God’s word but not fully grasping the depth of all of it until we are with Him…

    “For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able…”

    And, as my oldest child so long ago misquoted the next line:

    “To keep up in just a minute unto him against that day.”

    May it really be in just a minute – oh yes, in the twinkling of an eye, even! – that we are with Him, in the way of seeing Him face to face!

    1. Sorry, this comment is posted late as I just found it in my spam filter. Or as one Admin calls it the “dust bin.” As he refers to the spam trap, “I retrieved this from the dust bin.” Seemingly a derogatory term for a “bot” that often gets it wrong. I trust you won’t hold it against me as I don’t check the ‘bot dust bin often enough.

  2. Sometimes I wonder where compulsion comes from. Maybe God says “you are not done yet”
    Maybe you have said more than you think you did and less then you will if you quit? I suspect when we meet God all those questions will fall away and need no answer.

    1. I suspect compulsion in these cases must be God in the mix. It’s not a burning question for me, I just kind of ruminate on it sometimes. Like when I’m staring across the river watching the morning sun rise between the trees. At those times the question recedes into the background as I watch God winking at me from behind the trees.
