A story of choices

Needing graphic witness
the story of choices
all of the bible layered
with those who have followed
the calling of God
with those who have rejected
the hope of salvation
The love of God revealed
in the story of the people
in how His arms were open
How He was rejected
false idols worshipped
man’s hate for one another
corruption the hope of the garden
from the very beginning
How we disavowed
the majesty of God
How we turned our backs
when He called to us
How in spite of all this
He climbed the cross to save us
all of us saved
if we turn to Him
if we call Him Abba
if we follow Him now
yoked with our savior
conforming our steps to His
