Reality Check – Mulled Psalm 10

childeyes

Far from You we lack Your eyes, Your heart.
Insulated from suffering, distant,
unrelated, we reduce twenty
eight million children to abstract stats
though one face, one urgent stare haunts us:
loss of innocence, loss of family;
lost heart, lost mind, lost identity.
Yet You know her inside out, love him
with life resurrecting energy.
All-seeing One, You see the suffering!
Weigh each groan and teardrop, for victims
depend on You. Break evildoers’
power; call them to account. Divine
Judge, You rule the Universe in Peace.
Loving God, You draw close to those who
yearn for shelter, water, food, freedom.
Draw us close too. Focus us in Love.
