History’s Mysteries and The Lived Language of God

God fishing ole Jonah out of the drink,
Isaiah humbly praying, “here am I send me”.
Elijah running scared to Horeb after killing Baal’s priests,
God appearing to Abraham near the tree at Mamre.
Peter timidly despondent at the crow of the cock,
John on the Isle of Patmos, locked away on the rocks.
We’re all hobbling through history, a bone or two out of joint;
but God uses broken people, history shows that’s the point.
But using “son’s of Adam” was His plan from the start,
He just wraps us in Christ’s righteousness and gives us new hearts.

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.
