Sometimes I cry

December 21, 2018

 

I visited the bombed out Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, that was leveled by a terrorist bomb on April 19, 1995. 168 people died and more than 680 were injured. Just across the street from the bombed out Murrah Building is a statue of Jesus weeping. It is a very moving experience. 

 

The following is posted on the wall, written by K.C. and Myke Kuzmic.

 

I said,  “God, I hurt.”

And God said, I know.”

I said, “God, I cry a lot.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you tears.”

I said, “God, I am so depressed.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you Sunshine.”

I said, “God, life is so hard.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you loved ones.”

I said, “God, my loved one died.” And God said, “So did mine.”

I said, “God, it is such a loss.”

And God said, I saw mine nailed to a cross.”

I said, “God, but your loved one lives.” And God said, “So does yours.”

I said, “God, where are they now?”

And God said, “Mine is on My right and yours is in the Light.”

I said, “God, it hurts.” And God said, I know.”

Sometimes I cry

 

I look the part, blend in with the rest of the church crowd,

I know the routine, I could list all the bible studies in town.

 

Watch Christian TV, I know all the preachers, their clichés.

I've been born again and without a doubt I know I'm saved.

 

But sometimes I hurt and sometimes I cry!

Sometimes I can't get it right

No matter how hard that I seem to try.

 

Sometimes I fall down! And I stumble over my own disguise.

But I try to look strong, as the whole world looks on, sometimes alone I cry

 

I try to speak faith! Never give that old devil, no, not even an inch to get in.

I do worship and praise. Let everybody know just where that I stand

 

And on the back of my old four-wheel drive Chevy

Is a fish and a cross for the world to see

'Cause I know my God is good, all the time,

Yes, there's no doubt for me.

 

But sometimes I hurt and sometimes I cry!

Sometimes I can't get it right

No matter how hard that I seem to try.

1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

 

God loves you so much you can trust Him with your life!
