“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me” (1)

These painful words of Jesus
so very hard to hear
though most of us have thought ’em
throughout eternity.

Why do we so quickly
blame God when life unravels,
yet forget all about Him
when life’s road’s more easily traveled.

Yet Jesus isn’t any man,
He’s God’s one and only Son
who came to reconcile us
to the awesome three in one.

Man’s sin required a payment
for its wall to be torn down
but it couldn’t be just any man
He had to wear God’s crown.

So Jesus paid the price
at the cross on Calvary
and the Father seemed to look away,
His pain to hard to see.

But Jesus’ very nature
was relationship and love,
and would naturally be confused
when separated from Above.

But though He felt forsaken
with the weight of sins despair
their relationship never altered
the Father’s love was always there.

We trivialize the passion
of Jesus on the cross
when we try to understand it
from the perspective of the lost;

’cause perfect love was what was needed
and on earth it’s never seen,
and such love is incomprehensible
to sinners like you and me.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
