Because, a free verse poem, 2/7/2018

You may curse God, but He is good
Because He died on the cross for you
You may swear against God, but He is good
Because He will forgive you
You may doubt God, but He is good
Because He will take care of you

You may be tempted in this life, but He is good
Because He knows what you are going through
You may sin, but He is good
Because He has grace
You may choose to run from Him, but He is good
Because He loves you

You could shut yourself off from everyone, but He is good
He will be with you
Because He loves you
You could be depressed, but He is good
He will be with you
Because He loves you
You could die today, tomorrow, next week, or sometime this year, or maybe next year
He will be with you to the end, even if you don’t choose Him
Because He loves you
You may think your life is a mess, but He is good
Because He has made your life beautiful

Whether you run from Him
Hide from Him
Shout, “Crucify Him.”
Curse Him
Spit on Him
Take His clothes from Him
Nail Him to a cross
Doubt Him
Acknowledge Him
Believe in Him
Reflect Him
Hate Him
Put a crown of thorns on Him

At the end of the day, He still loves you, I don’t know about you, but that drives me mad.
