Stopping the Insanity


Do you believe in God?
In a being of three?
Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
Do you believe?
Can we agree?

Do you believe He’s omnipresent
Always present all the time?
Never does He take a break
He’s awake while others sleep
A God of love who is divine?

Do you believe He’s aware
Of every evil deed done everywhere?
Of wars, hatred, old-fashioned greed?
That He could bring it to its knees
Stop the insanity because He does care?

Do you look like me at the news
And feel your blood start to boil
Want to even oblivate the ones
Who kill the innocence and churches burn?
Whose deeds seem a hateful toil?

Do you believe God is love?
Then why can’t we move and stop the pain?
Why can’t we with His help overcome
The ignorance, evil and selfishness?
United couldn’t we stop evils gains?

Do you hurt for the larger events?
That wipe out hundreds and spill man’s blood
The ones that seem so senseless?
Yet are woven repeatedly
In mankind’s history before and after the flood?

Do you believe with God all things are possible?
Then why can’t we stop evil in our homes?
Why does spousal and child abuse go on?
Our children torment one another
Turn the tide now or is it too far gone?

I only know just yesterday
My child was bullied because of race
Came home shaking and in tears
Because some boys thought it fun
To torment her right in her face?

Have I learned a truth I can’t deny
Can the tide not be turned, is it too late?
Far too many will never forgive
Or agree to peace in sincerity?
That evil is through the door not at the gate?

Do you believe God forgives?
In our call to follow in His steps
We too must love our enemies
And pray for those who hurt us regularly
Is this part answer in inviting God where hate is kept?

I believe. Will you join with me?
Give ourselves over to God’s plan?
Can we strive to stop evil at home
So one by one the drops are turned
And evil’s tide turned because God can?
