Election in a Mad World


It was my turn again to write for the church blog and I am a little depressed lately and not really in the writing mood.  Sometimes I write simple phrases because I think they are easier for people to read in this busy world with so much information overload.  It is not really a poem and I have no idea about all the poem ettitquette anyway. It's just phrases for people to put together to put together their own meaning.


1 John 3:1, 2a "See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now."

The election is here

The world has gone mad

The world has always been mad

The world will always be mad

Under attack: sin

"We" are children of God

Together as a family

Never to stand alone

Entering that voting booth

As a child of God

Our Father claims us as His own

Never to disown us

Loves us that much

Incomprehensible love

So we are: His love

Who we are; identity

God's children NOW

Unswayed by the voices around

It's what our God says

His name be lifted up
