God is still God!

God is still God

By

Caleb R. Martin

 

Winter has ended, and spring has come,

The leaves are green, and bumblebees hum,

The flowers bloom, the grass is green,

The birds sweetly sing, by the laughing stream,

Happiness and bliss, do increase,

Relaxing in God’s grace, His joy, and peace.

 

And God’s still God, He is still the same,

God is still God, He still lives up to His name,

When there is peace and joy and rest, He still is there,

When there is beauty, love, and happiness, He still does care,

So on the mountain high, or the valley low,

God is still God, no matter where I go,

 

Summer fades, and the green leaves turn brown,

Rain clouds come, the thunder sounds,

The battle’s hard, the way is rough,

The pain is sharp, and the going’s tough,

Struggling hard, fighting for air,

Muscles ache, and things don’t seem fair,

 

 

Yet, God’s still God, He is still the same,

God is still God, He still lives up to His name,

When daylight runs, and nighttime comes, He still is there,

When smooth turns hard, and hope is marred, He still does care,

So on the mountain high, or the valley low,

God is still God, no matter where I go,

 

So whether, winter or spring, sunny or rain,

Mountain or valley, healthy or pain,

If the way is soft, or the way is rough,

His love is steadfast, His grace is enough,

Though my circumstance always seem to change,

God is still God, He is always the same,

 

Yes, God’s still God, He is still the same,

God is still God, He still lives up to His name,

If I’m happy or sad, forgiving or mad, God is still there,

He is still open for business, He is still reaching out, He still does care,

So on the mountain high, or the valley low,

God is still God, no matter where I go.

 

The Chase

 

But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people. And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;” Acts 17:5-6

The people in this account are chasing Paul and the other believers. Some may have been chasing to learn more, others may have been chasing to stop them from preaching. Do people chase us? Do they want what we have? Do they want us to stop because they are pricked in their hearts? Are we turning the world upside down? Or right side up? It is time to be more than just a “christian”, it is time to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Right here. Right Now.
