After the struggle and storm,

GOD’s mercies renew ev’ry morn……..

Praise His Name

His mercies remain,

By faith in you they’re reborn in!

Not all life is at ease,

abused, many feel squeeze……

of daily life

threat of a knife

someone else, forced to please!

Other religions don’t care

for downtrodden in fear……

women abused

are just viewed

as non-human chattel to bare.

Christianity as an institution,

Differs not in constitution…..

Its undertow

Of unrepentant woe,

Sin lurks in fraud absolution!

Where are GOD’s mercies then,

Do the tortured have no friend……?

For them light

Or darkness is fright,

Sufferings with no end?

My GOD loves everyone,

Sending rain and sun…..

For all living

Gracious giving,

To every daughter and son!

Unfathomable GOD’s grace,

GOD seeks to know face-to-face……

We creatures all

To this GOD call

For daily mercy and grace!

What of the suff’ring in fears?

BELIEVE–thy GOD nears—

almost beyond hope

in unbelievable scope,

thy MAKER sheds for you tears!

GOD won’t trespass human will,

That which would rape, maim or kill….

But all who cry

He stands nearby,

Comforting and always will!

Every man and woman chooses

Every moment who loses…..

Is it their soul

Or GOD’s loving whole,

Or the image of GOD he or she abuses.

GOD made us to love,

Choosing it comes from above……

Each choice when sin dies

Bring joyful cries

To a GOD of mercy and love!

GOD is mercy new every morning,

Coming with or without warning……

Believing is hoping

In the joy of coping,

GOD’s love inside us is warming!

        A lot of people have been hurt and scarred by religion. Me too—and I did some of it myself! All I can say is that faith in Jesus Christ—or Yeshua the Messiah (My Hebrew is terrible!) has really changed lives in drastic ways over the centuries—not being a church member—but through faith in Christ. As far as I know, Christianity is the only faith (despite claims by the Hindus, mentioned by some) where GOD chases after us..and made His way to know Him free via His actions—not ours! No other religion (and some claim to be christian) offers that, without human rules added on! ANYWAY….I respect your position…without faith that GOD exists, it is impossible to please Him (Hebrews 11: 5-6). Err on the side of “theist”..the evidence for an Intelligent Designer is too overwhelming, in my science-trained view! 😀
