Why?

How can I sit and watch you cry when I know the one who mends broken hearts?

I don’t, but I know who does.

“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”

Psalms 147:3 KJV

How can I watch you limp around, when I know the maker and healer of all?

I can do nothing by myself. But I know the one who can.

“And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.”

Matthew 14:36 KJV

How can I watch you demonstrate hate when I know the one who loves you best, better than all the rest?

My love is broken, but I know the one who loves perfectly and completely.

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:8 KJV

How can I watch you destroy yourself when I know the one who specially and specifically designed you?

I don’t know you, but I know the one who knows exactly how many hairs you have on your head. I know the one that knows everything about you.

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Psalms 139:14 KJV

“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”

Matthew 10:30 KJV

How can I watch you go without, when I know who owns the cattle on a thousand hills?

I am poor, but I know the one who is the richest of all.

“For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.”

Psalms 50:10 KJV

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

John 3:1
