Bowing Down

Exodus 4:31 “…And when they heard that the Lord was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshipped.” (NIV)*

IMG_3449When God seems far

And life too hard

Is He even there?

Surely, He couldn’t care.

Then, a song brings tears

He bends listening ear

The Word resonates truth.

The enormity of Him

Beside what I am

Creator, sovereign God

Is concerned and sees.

Moved by such news

bowing down

I worship You.
