God is working everywhere,
We just need to join him there!
His love extends to everyone!
There is so much to be done.

Often where we see a life,
Full of darkness, anger, strife,
Where we’d stay away in fear,
Jesus enters and draws near.

As we roll our eyes in scorn,
Over one messed up, forlorn,
Jesus calls him to repent,
For it is to those He’s sent.

Where we toss someone away,
Won’t give them the time of day,
Jesus builds a bridge of love
From the Father up above.

Jesus lifts a heart that’s weary,
Dries the eyes of one who’s teary,
Intercedes for all His own,
Brings them to the Father’s throne.

He wants us to show His Grace
Loving all the human race!
He wants you to be His Hands,
Loving here or distant lands!

There is so much to be done,
Here and there for everyone.
Yes, He’s working everywhere!
Thank you that you’ve joined Him here!

"He wants us to show His grace" . . . that speaks to me just now. Thank you for letting God use you to speak to many of us!

"God is working everywhere,

This is a beautiful poem, especially meaningful to me at this time, Jesus is the God of miracles, and miracles so beautiful, indeed! Jesus can take anger and all those sorts of things and show you that they are NOTHING at all... and they cease to exist! :)
