How Long?

How Long?

how long should He care?
how long must He weep?

outwardly no stain of tear.
however, from within, a weeping,
battered, bruised and beating heart,
still throbs, with unconditional love.

this loving heart?

it weeps for ignorance,
as evil’s subtlety persists.
‘tis bruised
because of man’s deceptive ways.
‘tis battered
by our endless hopelessness –
yet His heart, still throbs
for our eternity,
as we, by ourselves, still
try to endure

perhaps there is still time to learn,
and from our sad predicaments return,
to sow and reap, some better seed
to gladden God’s own heart
with hope for us again.

how long should He care?
how long must He weep?

until…?

    The world we living now that there is good and evil so much bad bad things happenings now we say to our selves why this things happenings remember when the bible in the scripture when the disciples ask Jesus saying teacher , when will these things be? and what sign will there be when these things are about to be take place? And He said : Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in mt name, saying i am he and the time has drawn near therefore do not go after them but when you hear of wars and commotions do not be terrified: for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately. Then He said to them. Nation will rise against nation ad kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places and famines and pestilences and there will fearful sights and great sign of heaven. LUKE 21. And yes yes there is hope through JESUS our heavenly Father.

    Treena’s questions beg us ask, “How long will we care? How long will we weep? How long will we hope to totally grasp the depth of His unconditional love?

    “For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now.”
