Perfect Reason For All Seasons...




In life’s seasons cold and dismal beauty does not change its ways
Hope still bridges hurt abysmal, dawn still brims with Mercy’s gaze
Love still keeps redemption’s promise, (nothing dis-annuls God’s Word )
In the middle of life’s winter spring is waiting undeterred

In the middle of the muddle that can vex the well-laid plan
When the ways of God befuddle the determined ways of man
Love still stands amidst the rubble like hope’s gonfalon unfurled
God is bigger than the trouble that torments this broken world

When the weight of woe would crush us but for grace that sets us free
When the ache of longing rushes like a river to the sea
Love still grants the Perfect Reason to let our spirits soar
For love gives to every season so much to be thankful for

 How good it is to sing praises to our God,
    how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
Psalm 147:1
