That is me

Standard

Man looks at the state of families, the economy and politics.
They shake their fists at heaven and say “Why do you do this?”
God looks down with tears welling in his eyes
And says, “That isn’t me.”

Man looks at the world, hunger and poverty.
They shake their fists at heaven and say “Why do you do this?”
God looks down with a tear running down his face
And says, “That isn’t me.”

Man looks at four planes, crumbled buildings and mourning.
They shake their fists at heaven and say “Why do you do this?”
God looks down with tears streaming from his eyes
And says, “That isn’t me.”

Man looks at war, soldiers tortured and dying.
They shake their fists at heaven and say “Why do you do this?”
God looks down sobbing
And says, “That isn’t me.”

God points to the sunset, the ocean and the mountains.
He smiles and says, “Look at what I did. That is me!”

God points to the love of a mother, the smile of a child, the protection of a father.
He beams with pride and says, “Look at what I did. THAT is me!”

God points to the commitment of a missionary, the love of a living church, the hands reaching to those in need.
He smiles with tears streaming from his eyes and says, “Look at what I did. THAT is me!”

God points to the cross, to the dying Christ, to the Resurrection.
He looks down sobbing and says, “Look at what I did. THAT is me! I love you!”
