How Do I Know (Another Poem)

How Do I Know?

Hubble sees galaxies incredibly distant,
incalculable stars in the heavens existent.
Vastness and distance light years away.
Who can explain such creation man’s way?

Back here on earth the world’s such a mess.
Children go hungry, the wars, much illness.
Nations of poverty, not one with real hope.
Lost people stumble, at the end of their rope.

Violence, haters, the Anti-Semitic,
killings and bombings, the darkness pathetic.
All testify the fact that such evils abound,
sadness, hopelessness, death all around.

So asks man this question, “Does God really know me?
If so, where is He? I must know, He must show me!”
“How does He care for this world, billions strong?
How can this God endure all this wrong?”

Hubble sees galaxies incredibly distant,
incalculable stars in the heavens existent.
Vastness and distance light years away.
Who can explain such creation man’s way?

Day and its’ light move slowly towards night,
removing all colors from our sight.
Colors now blending indiscernible light,
unable to tell which way is right.

Left to my mind, if honest, I admit I would fail.
But in the light of true love, all is made well.
Though the world is virtually falling apart,
in His Face, now I’m known, now I know, but in part.

Intimate Lover sees each one the same.
Father’s tears, teachings, understood in His Name.
Billions of people in this world today.
And the questioning ask, “How’s God able to love them this way?”

Hubble sees galaxies incredibly distant,
incalculable stars in the heavens existent.
Vastness and distance light years away.
Who can explain such creation man’s way?

I don’t know how He does it, no person can.
But this I will testify, I know by His blood stained hand!
I know by His still small voice and by His loving touch.
I know by His gaze that has pierced thru so much.

I know how He delivered me from addictions so strong.
I know by this tune in my heart, my new song.
I know that I know that I know I am saved.
I know of my home by the sins that He waved.

I know by the cancers healed in my sight.
I know by the dead raised to life outright!
I know by the weight of His Presence I’ve seen.
Glory filled rooms in the church, there have been.

I know by the unity being restored.
I know by religious boxes destroyed by the Lord!
I know By His stirring in godly church pastors,
to turn from dry rivers and stagnant old waters.

I know by what is that’s emerged from what’s not.
I know from the cold that’s been turned into hot!
I know by His intimate personal visitations,
of revival fires across many nations.

Unfathomable existence, Who can this be?!
Billions of light years, little earth He does see.
Father holds you child upon His knee.
Who has eyes to see beyond what man can see?

Knowing’s impossible till His Face we will know,
Intimate dance of faith, we must go.
A choice we must make before He will show,
By evidences to immense for our tiny minds to know.

Now is your time, leap of faith you must make!
Spirit now calling, reveals His heart for your sake.
This leap of faith we must make now to know.
Keep asking Him, beckon His Face to you show?

Till then…

Hubble sees galaxies incredibly distant,
incalculable stars in the heavens existent.
Vastness and distance light years away.
Who can explain such creation man’s way?
