When there is so much deceit, lying and hypocrisy in the world,
and people are fed untruths as a matter of course;
it is difficult to say, “It is the Lord.”
When there is so much greed among men that many go hungry
and yet there is enough to feed everyone;
it is very difficult to say, “It is the Lord.”
Where there is so much hatred, strife and violence among nations,
like we all had a common death wish to end human existence on earth;
it is indeed very difficult to say, “It is the Lord.”
And yet, it is in moments of emptiness that we realize that “It is the Lord.”
In our darkness that we see his light and say, “It is the Lord.”
In our utter depravity and sinfulness that we cry out for redemption
and shout out, “It is the Lord.”
Where reason ends, faith begins.
And when senses fail, the heart will show the way.
