Ground Zero

Two projectiles, piercing humanity, striking out at God.
Flesh torn, metal exploding and fire blood drips down,
Pooling at ground zero.
Saturating the world at its center.

Unbelief pilots.  Mobs defy reason.
Terror crowns the Glory and evil dips his wings in compliance.
And blood streams down again,
Through the heart of the matter.
Nerve endings absorb the impact of the weight of it all.

Hallowed Ground opens up.
It is finished. Forsaken.
Earth shudders and the tree drips in wreckage,
Pounded down past the crust of regret.
Sacrifice for all, Greatest of Love is this,
A brother who lays down His own life…

The World is heavy and tears start to fall
The water and the blood move
To extinguish the fire burning soul deep.

The skies grow quiet, ashes fall
---And some fall,
Down on our knees,

Grace arises, removes the concrete rubble.
The stones of the living resolve, freedom fight.
Let’s roll.
And we believe again.
We know Love again.
We’re made Holy again.

Soldier on to make peace.
Shine light beams to Heavens door.
Honor the brave hearts,
In the stairwells of our lives.
Stretch out arms east to west,
Search out, pay it forward.
Glide on wings like Eagles in freedom.
Say, “I love you,” with grace abounding,
For it binds up the wounds.
Live fearless, transfomed.

Remembrance waters run deep.
Never forget that day, what was done,
What’s been undone.


Lamentations 3:20-23
"I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (NIV) AMEN."
