malicious acts, unpleasant deeds,
corruption, crime, disaster,
mischief, misfortune, disease

we need someone to blame
a target for our displeasure
in this world there is enjoyment
but also so much pain

where is our Creator,
our Almighty Saviour
does He even reign?

in all this suffering
how can we be free?
how can the Highest One
allow a killing spree?

what is the meaning of being almighty
what is the meaning of having such power?
Almighty God means highest in ranking
no one above to direct or command Him

He doesn’t rule like a king of the earth
instead of domination
He reigns with
love and grace
all the time in every space

the reign of the world was given to humans
the earth was for us
to wield, to ply, to farm, to tend
to manage for useful things

the Creator was longing for love
despite His self-reliance
to be loved was a need
yet to be filled
and love can’t be forced
so He gave us free will

we took our freedom and authority
and we gave it away
became victims of our lusts and desires
turned ourselves into slaves

God mourns our choices
but by His Word
His hands are tied
He will never break His promises
He will not take away our freedom

Christ – died for us so we could live
now, we are His bodies in this world
we are His hands and feet
His eyes and ears

in the spiritual realm
the battle is won
death has been defeated
the ill are healed

in our minds
we have yet to understand

His victory
His greatness
His heart
His core
