God Understands

My English Dogwood in bloom

God understands our sorrow,
And to what extent.
He recognizes our hurts,
Knows where all our tears went.

God comprehends our pain,
And the depth to which. 
He realizes our suffering,
Is acquainted with it.

God apprehends our struggles,
And the brokenness.
He specializes in mending,
Each wound, He will address.

God transcends our good,
And our capacity for it.
He despises our sin,
Yet, paid the price to fix.

God extends His mercy
And the gift of grace.
He finalizes salvation
For anyone who partakes.

God befriends His children,
And has a home prepared.
He agonizes for all,
Wanting everyone there. 

You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
Psalm 139:3

Sue Nash/2013

    Such a sweet and priceless attribute of our God. I love the way the contemporary group Avalon puts it: “… You were the power in David’s sling; You were the calm in Abraham; You are the God Who understands…” So true! Thank you for all your encouragements. Be blessed!

        Most welcome! It’s on the Avalon CD called “The Creed” – the song title is “You Were There”.
