Young man, suit & tie
Pop your collar to look smart
like all the other fools passing by.
Where are you going in such a hurry?
Rushing around as fast as they can
Blurring past as I stand….. still.
They stop just seconds before walking straight into us, the shock of a person un-moved in the madness the life here demands.
None of it appeals to this heart.
Daily the mirage fades, falls.
This city, the prize of this nation, the apple of our eye
But I see it as bruised and rotting under that waxed, red skin.
Yet there is a love that still redeems, makes broken things whole, breathes life into dirt and when the dust settles we find our hearts….. still. Breathless, beat-less but for Your blood.
So today, Jesus I plead Your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. It’s only by the sprinkling of Your blood that men can be clean. God end abortion and send Revival to America. Send Revival to DC.
