The Word Of God - Poem by AHO Speaks

We have described God, painted God and molded God to our scene
Depiction as a human just like you and me; and at first very mean.
With long flowing hair and no color to his face
Pointing a finger and not a hair out of place.

Imagine the audacity to forever to describe
As tho Israel had but only one tribe.
I have read and heard that one could not see the face of God
If this was to be true they would have had to rise out of the sod.

Better we describe a word or a scene that came forth from him
With arms around the children and the words; 'let us begin'.
Or with arms around each other
'let us go forward as sister and brother.'

God will give the manna from heaven so we can live
That we express our lives so that he will forgive.
The word is not productive when we depict a moments desire
Our God is warm and gentle and never comes like the fire.

God will always send his children words for earthly direction
And just as certainly send the dove with words of protection..
