God said, Be Still

A young man was "set up" to die
Ran from the bullet that missed his eye
So, he was shot in the back instead
Shot multiple times, hoping he was dead
They kept shooting him his body ajar
He was trying to drag himself to his car
He was desperate now, God said, "NO"
"It is not time for this child to go"
Only eighteen God had a plan
"Be still, my son, and know that I am God,
I will be exalted among the heathen, 
I will be exalted in the earth"
The young man saw God's work so true
He made it to the hospital, still living too
He should have died from such injuries
It was another of God's loving mysteries 
Believe in the Bible, Psalms 46: 10
He brought a boy from a storm he was in
God asked him to be still and let Him shine
I shall hold you near and you will be mine

Praying for you and your grandson. So much of our deepest emotions can only be expressed in poetry. I felt it reading your poem.
