Tear Drops And T(EAR) Spots

Rev. Lainie Dowell
 
 
Time to get serious about God's business.
Who can endure except that God be with them?  

 
 

Trouble is all around on every hand.
God's women are crying out all over this land.
Children are hanging onto the skirttails of women.
Women have become the beast of burden.
Loaded down with the tossed asides and leftovers and
wretched and torn and tattered lives of loved ones
(at least on her part)
who yet toss her aside.


Teardrops and T(ear)spots.

Serious business is at hand.
Women looking sharp and glamorous -- outside.
Bloodied and battered and bruised -- inside.
Deceiving no one -- just a lie.
Needing attention from everyone.

But does it come?
Not from this realm.
Does it go forth?
Who can tell? 

Getting tired of women being damned to hell.
Getting tired of women being tossed aside.
Getting tired of women being driven to mental institutions.
Getting tired of women carrying "monkeys" on their backs.
Child monkeys.
Lover monkeys.
Church monkeys.
Pill monkeys.
Drink monkeys.
Drudged up accusations and
Misplaced accolations.
Monkeys all.
And
"Monkey see --
Monkey do
Has become the rallying
Cry in God's House.


Damned tired.
(If offended, just continue
to keep your eyes shut
and your ears closed
and your mouth sealed!)


Who heard their cries?
Who saw their pain?
Who soothed their fears?
Who rose from the grave?
Who came to save and deliver?
Who?
Who?
Who?


The SAME ONE
Who speaks from on high.
The SAME ONE
Who hears your cry.
The SAME ONE
Who loves and cares from afar
Yet stood to speak where you are.
The SAME ONE
Who controls time, tide, and all.

The SAME ONE
Who answers when you call.

The SAME ONE
Who bled and died
Still answers every time
He hears your cry.


GOD IS AWAKE-- AND HE CARES FOR YOU!
