He stands tall, in quiet confidence,
Even in human shortcomings,
All stumble at times, many fall
Most get back up,
An invisible hand nudges, lifts and encourages
Continues to guide each along their unique path;
Love covers all our trangressions,
The love of God unfailing, unmoved.
What sadness when the one who falls is blind to that hand
A kind hand that reaches out in preciseness,
One who truly understands more than all
Who clearly sees the end from the beginning,
Gentle One who spares no effort
Who literally moves heaven and earth
To set another upon the unshakeable Rock
High above this troubled world
At rest near the Shepherd’s Throne
At peace with the eternal King of Jerusalem.
Heavenly beauty unfolds true revelation,
Youthful beauty on earth but a dim reflection,
Like a passing impulsive fad,
While timeless strength and stability
Always stands nearby patiently waiting.
***Beware those who lie while smiling and offering hugs of fellowship.
