Inexhaustible (Ever Since Ever Since)

“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
 Tell me, if you have understanding.
(Job 38:4 ESV)


There He was, is, and is to come...ever since ever since.
Existing in the solitude of His Trinitarian excellence
A community of perfection to which no other can compare
Invisible. Spirit. Physical. With one voice They agree
Let there be…LIGHT!

BOOM! There’s your big bang
Voice echoing through the darkness to give it a name –
He owns it…
Before that it was nothing; just a figment of imagination
Until He brought it to fruition in an instant
Yet, thoughtful and patient
Two attributes which get lost in a humanistic sense
Because for us it’s microwaves, drive-thrus and art without evidence
But His attention to detail is a show of His benevolence

Inexhaustible…

Who would’ve thought to make every star, tree, plant, and animal?
They can’t be store-bought
A storehouse of works to behold
For, every eye to behold them since knows there’s a story being told
 “I AM that I AM” –
That’s the name that He gave
It implies that He don’t need you to breathe and He don’t need you to save Him
HE SAVES MEN
From Hell and everything that comes with it –
From pimps to false prophets to run-on sentences
Lustful deeds and all of the things I hide
Never get missed by His all-seeing eyes
Wiser than wise…I’m sick and He knows it, but He heals me by His Word
(Wow. A Great Physician and a Poet)

Or else please tell me what you could possibly comprehend
About One who can truly kill a man and then bring him back again?!
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
Of the living Word who can take a man from six feet deep
To where mercy is found.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
(Revelation 1:8 ESV)

Soli Deo Gloria,
 Shon
