Life was mute – Few rainbows. And there were only puny, fleeting sunsets.
No time to notice anything, too many goals. Too busy – Numb to love’s ever-flowing rhythm. Trees and flowers swayed, giving beauty to each day. So what? God’s perfect truth, His essence – Was a distant myth. My frozen granite heart knew better. Life was for self, snatching moments, surviving. The entire world cannot comfort one heart void of hope. So what? Busyness is foolishness – More unstable than whirlwinds. Worse even than plain falsity, wherein dwells the Devil. Funny – The evil one knew me well enough to swear he’d won me with his shiny dime. So What? So everything – At least according to the Lord. The One God, Almighty – The author of it all – Creator extraordinaire! He sent his answers well before I asked for them. Turns out that I’m more precious than I’d ever dreamt – Jesus told me so. Why did He care so much that he could not abide my anguish?
Why indeed? Why had my God claimed me? If ever there was a good reason to ask, “Why me?” I know none better. But claim me he did – His own, from the very first – Never to be lost again! Remarkable! He sweetly sailed thru every grief, searched me, and still He took me to Himself. A place beyond rainbows, beyond sunsets, and far past shiny dimes. Thank God! Thank God for His perfect love, which sweetens all of life. Its music plays a chorus within all hearts to hear. Eyes see each sight and sound beam bright with promise. And Grace and mercy transform all who would come – Yes, even you – If you only will draw near!
