God Said to Man, Man Said to God

God said to man "Breathe, Now" Man said to God "Don't know how" God replied "I've already shown you, son" Man sighed "Am I the only one?" My tool chest is full but my hands are tied Could've told the truth but instead I lied My books are worn out but what did I learn? I smell smoke and fire but what did I burn? God took a rib from man's side "This I give to you, but 1st it will hide" Even though a dam has stopped the flow I will search for the rib high and low My mind has all the information I need To act upright in thought, word, and deed But until I apply this the way I should Everything I know is also misunderstood God said to man "This is the way" Man said to God "You said that yesterday" God blessed man with sufficient will Man walked with God and he was fulfilled God blessed man again and again Yet man strayed, much to his chagrin God put man back on the right road And gave him the strength to carry his load

Interesting work. I do agree humankind keeps on sinning because we are sinners. Sara

Intriguing ink. God never quits trying with his 'great experiment.' That's how we know He's not human... Would have given up long, long ago... Smiles, Gershon
