Just Thinking God Thoughts

This line on

the side bar

caught my eye

 

It says that a day

without God sucks

and yes, I would agree

but therein is the problem

 

There is no such thing

as a day without God

we can't escape, nor

can we hide from

the omnipresent

being we proclaim

to be our God 

 

Are we blind to think

we can escape or hide

it's like saying

when it is dark at night

that the sun has gone

but it has not for if it were

we would die

 

If God decided to go away,

to not care for us

to forsake us

we would not be

would vanish

would be like

flicking the switch

to existence

would extinguish the

eternal flame

we think is life

 

But life is more than this

is beyond human reason

beyond my words trying

to find a way to describe

what it is I'm trying to describe. 

 

I'm just thinking God thoughts here

in my human condition,

occasionally  I get a glimpse

of the supernatural side of God

 

those fleeting moments are

precious and I long to see more.
