Hanging By A Thread
by louis gander
1/23/2014 / Missions
Can I not find a single leaf
that hangs upon a twig -
on hidden tree with millions more
within this valley, big?
Can I not find a single bird
that's nestled with the rest -
way deep inside a big ol' world,
protected in its nest?
Can I not find my Comforter
who's there when e're I fall -
who Jesus sent to bring me peace -
if I would only call?
Can I not find a Savior who
had walked around with men -
who was my perfect sacrifice,
so perfect without sin?
Can I not find the God of all -
Creator of all things -
and have my heartstrings failed to break
when one small girl sings?
Can I not find my purpose now
outside my selfish door -
that 'great commission' filled with love
that God has called me for?
Can I not seek beyond my wants,
beyond my worldly place -
beyond the tip of my long nose -
beyond my pretty face?
Can I not find one tiny soul
who begs and cries for aid -
who's needing someone just like me -
yet I have only prayed...?
In such a place of hopelessness,
with many others dead,
can I not help one tiny child
who's hanging by a thread?
