A Cry To God

 

I've cried to God as I've beheld

The world wrapped up in fear

Of lack and death and war that looms

To snatch lives held so dear

I said, "My God! - Have you not heard

The newsmen on TV?!

Do you not know the shape we're in?!

Do you not care for me?!"

"I'm scared, Dear Jesus! - Help us! - Please!

There's news of fear and war

And I'm afraid, Lord - I admit! -

Of what might be in store."

"Peace, be still, My child," He said

"And hear now what I say

For I have seen and heard the cries

Of those who, to Me, pray.

"Keep your eyes upon ME now

Not what you hear or see

And, as you do, you'll keep My peace -

IF your mind stays on ME!"

"It matters not what one man says

Or even many more

For I am God, and I decide

Each day what lies in store."

"I've told you there would be such times When, of these things, You'd

hear

I told you so you'd be PREPARED

And FULL OF PEACE, not fear."

"For all these things MUST be fulfilled

Yet MY WORD fails not

For I AM still your Hiding Place

As all the fires rage hot."

"You're hid beneath MY shadow now

And you can rest in Me

Yes you can trust My Words of LOVE

To last eternally."

"For I'm your Father, Counselor, Friend

Your Alpha and your End

And if this was the world's last day

Be sure, for you, I'd send."

"I've promised I'd save you a place

If you would stay in Me

Stay pure and faithful, eyes on Me

And, victory, you'll see."

"I can't tell you if it's 'the end' -

NO human man can know

But I CAN tell you, it IS close,

So be prepared to go."

"Each day I give you, reach in love

To save another soul

For snatching them from Me for Hell

Is truly Satan's goal."

"Occupy until I come

Live each day FULL in ME

Just keep your eyes upon MY face

And know that I DO see."

"I see the world, I see YOUR LIFE

And I DO care for YOU

And know, no matter WHAT occurs

My love for you stands TRUE."

"I'm Alpha and Omega - God -

I'm King and Lord of ALL

I'll be right near to care for you

As, on My name, you call."

"For I can change the hearts of Kings

And I, their hearts, do try

And I'M the one who formed this world

And says when it shall die."

"So, USE this time to SEEK THE LOST

And tell them of My Love

That they, too, may be saved and live

With Me, again, above."

"Don't listen to fear's voice - hear MINE! Then STAND on what you've

heard

Don't fear yours or the world's fate -

It's destined by MY WORD."

"Keep your eyes on ME, My Child,

And let Me wipe each tear

For I am God and IN CONTROL -

So live in peace, not fear."
