The world is full of death

The world is full:
Of hatred. Of war. Of death.
It’s rising all around me,
I choke on the smell of it.
Spiritual darkness.
It is the kind of death people are not yet aware of.
They cannot see the war
Satan has blinded us to it.
The hatred from sin tares at the souls
of every man and woman and child.
My heart is breaking!
My eyes fill with an endless flow of tears,
they cascade down my cheeks like a waterfall-
pooling in my heart and weighing me down.
This is not a burden I can handle-
Is there no mercy!
Is there no love?
Oh God who can know the depths of your affections,
What joy fills my inner being,
When I remember who You are.
Everlasting father,
Redeemer. Deliverer. Friend.
You care about the dead people.
My friends, my family my foes.
You know their hearts,
Thank you God that you care!
That you are in control and sovereign.
Let me rest in you-
In these truths:
That You are the LORD God!
