Despicable Me

Despicable Me (a lament)

O God, You are loving and kind

Yet, I am hurt and angry at Your church

Why did they embrace a despicable man?

Make them see their folly; their idolatry.

For, I am hurt and angry at Your church

I want her to weep and keen

Make them see their folly; their idolatry

Pierce their hearts to feel my pain.

I want her to weep and keen

Why did they embrace a despicable man?

Pierce their hearts to feel my pain

O God, You are loving and kind.

About Joe Chambers

I am the beloved of the Most High God. I am an avid reader and writer and have been a continuous learner since my college studies in Ancient Literature and English. I live at the base of Mount Princeton in the Colorado Rockies with my wife of over three decades. I believe I have been put here to tell people that God is not mad at them and to show them the way Home. I am the father of three sons, a daughter-in-law and four grandchildren. I love to read, tell stories, and spend time in the wilderness with my friends and sons.

    Excellent lament. Makes me want to rip my clothes and put on sack cloth and ashes. What if Christians showed up in church tomorrow like that?
