One needn’t look far
to find those
who preach denial and desolation.
One might think
those without hope
would be content
to keep smug emptiness to themselves.
But in the name of a godless religion
they strike out against the poor and struggling,
seeking to ensnare and ensure their demise;
laying waste to all faith, hope, and love.
Intimidation and derision
used by the clever
to slay truth and crush wisdom.
At times, it seems
those willing to take God’s side
conveniently avoiding abuse from the wicked.
the expanse of our world,
will He still find faith?
Though we suffer and
languish beneath attacks,
God will restore
Even now, His Spirit inspires,
but the day will come
when He will wipe away every tear
and we will see the glory of the Lord.
