Who Is God? - Poem by Howard Simon

Who is God?
He is:

A poor man’s riches
A hungry man’s bread
A sad man’s joy
A sick man’s health
A crippled man’s legs
A deaf man’s ears
A blind man’s eyes
An tired man's rest
A troubled man’s peace
A foolish man’s wisdom
A defeated man’s victory
An insane man’s sanity
A dead man’s life
A lost man’s salvation

    Wow..this is so inspiring on the image of God, it tells of the God of the forgotten and less thought about among men. God bless you for this poem (Report) Reply
