Why I’m not God

I see a city, a country, a world; suffering many ailments
I want to fix it, heal the hurts, and comfort the wounded
I want to make the hurts go away, now

I see good people, who do not know God
Some of these people will assuredly not see heaven
In my heart I want to change that

I see the child of a broken home
I see the ravages of divorce
I see the pain of uninvolvement
I want to bring healing to these broken people

I see countries and peoples whom hate one another
I see religions that cannot abide one another
I see hate fostered in so many
I want to undue this plague

I observe hearts breaking; others severely tried
I see the evidence of much heartlessness
I want to the hearts of the heartless; mend the broken hearted

I see pain repaid with pain
I see vindictiveness spread wide
I want to reach out; and replace these with love

I see a world reaching out for vileness
I see people chasing what does not matter and does not satisfy
I want to show them the Truth

I see people so filled with bitterness
I see others who cannot forgive
I see those who care not for others

In my wisdom, I would solve these problems now you see
In my wisdom I would do more harm than good
In my wisdom the world may well be worse

My Father has a plan, far better then my plan
My plan for me did not even work; let alone the peoples of the world
My father has a plan, a reason for all

Our God has the answers, all the answers
I wish I understood a little more
I wish that my wisdom were but a little higher

I must trust in my Lord
Wisdom is His
Our good is in His hands

I could not make the hard calls
The tough decisions would find me wanting
Yes it is good; I’m not God

I will leave The Job to the One
I will gladly be not in charge
Yes I am glad, that I am not God

  1. ‘Tain’t it so, Brother Greg! So wonderful that we CAN leave it to God and His wisdom. Let us pray to continue in submission to His will.

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
