I was taking myself very seriously the other day. I wasn’t sure how I could solve (or survive) global warming, the health care crisis, the rise in violent crime, and all the diseases I read about in magazines. Modern life is complex, and it’s easy for me to get lost in its intricacies. I had a thought about Jesus that brought comfort and led to a poem of sorts:
He is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
And Mary’s son.
The Great High Priest, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,
Author and Finisher, the Chief Cornerstone, King of Kings,
And calmer of storms.
Desire of Nations, Sun of Righteousness, Bread of Life,
And friend of sinners.
He is of the highest complexity and the greatest simplicity.
He alone is God even when I pretend to be.
