Above & below

God above
Earth below
Filled with love
Yet sorrow knows

From above
To below
Seeks the lost
Mercy bestows

Father above
Child below
Moment of clarity
Home I go

Order above
Chaos below
Meaningful moments
Thus we grow

Aim above
Strive below
Seek the truth
Shalom will flow

Judge above
Nations below
Justice restored
Evil brought low

Fire above
Fire below
Refined by love
Through we go

Mystery above
Revealed below
Creation renewed
All in tow

  1. GR8 Theology, thank you!

    Love the ending:

    Fire above
    Fire below
    Refined by love
    Through we go (Mark 9 “For everyone will be salted by fire” in a nutshell)

    Mystery above
    Revealed below
    Creation renewed
    All in tow

    Now you have to sing it, and post it for us!

    1. Thanks, I’m glad the verse about fire made sense. You’re right, Mark 9 was one of the verses I had in mind (I discuss that in https://reforminghell.com/2016/03/26/immortal-worms-unquenchable-fire%E2%80%95burks-view-of-hell%E2%80%95part-2/), although as you probably know, the idea isn’t limited to just that verse but also https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zec%2013%3A9%3B%20Job%2023%3A10%3B%20Ps%2066%3A10%3B%201Cor%203%3A11-15%3B%20Mal%203%3A2-3%3B%201Pet%201%3A7&version=HCSB%3BNLT%3BESV%3BNIV

      If singing & song writing was one of my gifts, I’d post me singing it 😀
