We hear of pain and tragedies
Every single day,
And it breaks our heart to see and hear
When evil has its way.
Most of it though is self-induced
Stemming from a stony heart,
When the seed of anger encourages murder
To destroy and tear apart.
Childhood cancers and sex slaves;
The thought is too much to bear…
Particularly when our youth of today
Is neglected from love and care.
Family violence and tensions in households
Emanating from lack of respect;
Where broken lines of communication
Have caused frustrations and neglect.
False friends and acquaintances
With an opportunity to use,
And abuse the relationship for their gain
And where tensions are not diffused.
It’s really a sad state of affairs
When we really think of same,
And so tragic when lives are at risk
And are put to an open shame.
Unfortunately this brokenness
Will always be in existence;
Since greed, corruption and pride itself
Causes friction and problems intense.
However there is very good news indeed
And as we grasp same there is hope,
When Jesus Christ comes to heal our pain
To give us a future and a scope.
His kingdom was not of this earth
But He preached on eternal life;
To reconcile us back to the Father
To heal all pain and strife.
When our hope and faith is for eternity
It gives us a strength to endure;
With a love to share the good news of Christ
With correct motives that are pure.
