I exist

How could I need meaning
beyond the undeniable fact that my very existence gives testament
to the grace of an all-powerful creator?

How could I need comfort
beyond the unalterable condition of my presence within
the loving mercy of the Father?

How could I long for more
beyond the unbelievable splendor of the reality in which I reside,
the masterpiece that he created?

How could I grow bored
when even the smallest action voices witness of
a higher purpose found in Him?

How could I become dissatisfied
when my very ability to feel dissatisfied is something
which would be impossible without Him?

How could I stay silent
about one so magnificent that words simply fail
to describe the millionth part of his splendor?

How could I fail to love
those who, like me, are pieces of this brilliant
puzzle designed by the author of humanity?

A man said to the universe,
"Sir, I exist!"
"However" replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
a sense of obligation."

I say to the universe "I exist." And every fiber of my being does so only because He willed it so.


  1. Amen.

    What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?

  2. Yes, yes! Knowing that God has given me everything that I am leaves me with no response except awe and an intense desire to share his love!
