I Am Deeply Grieved
1840 painting by Potok Gorski

I Am Deeply Grieved

I am angry that My children
continue to turn away from ME
That they chase after idols
instead of looking to Me
The One that gives them their next breath
and the power to be...
All that they will ever need
can be found in Me.
I will not stay My Hand for long
for the wickedness abounds
In even those that profess to know Me
their sinful heart knows no bounds.
Do not get caught up in things that perish
that will dissolve before your eyes
When I do return for you
make sure you have been wise.
I've given you the blueprint
and all that you will ever need
To live a life of victory,
have faith like unto that mustard seed.
Again I will not tarry long
for at times I must turn away
To keep My Hand from smiting man
their retribution to delay.
So, My child, heed the warning
for I am deeply grieved
About My precious children
and what they have believed
I Am, God their maker
and of all that is,
How hard is that to understand
it does not take a whiz.
Get on your knees, repent today
so that My Hand be stayed
For I dearly love My children
and want only to be obeyed!

Let us examine our ways and test them,
and let us return to the LORD.
Lamentations 3:40 NIV

I will put my laws in their minds so they will understand them,
and I will write them on their hearts so they will obey them...
Hebrews 8:10 NLT
