GOD OF THE UNEXPECTED

Joseph was the youngest child
A thorn in his brothers’ sides;
Let’s get rid of him,” they said:
Rejected; yet favored by You.

David was the last in line,
Only good for tending sheep;
“You couldn’t want him,” they said;
But You anointed him as King.

How could Esther be the queen,
Merely a Hebrew woman;
“You were born for this,” he said;
And she saved her people from death.

Who is this carpenter’s son,
And from Nazareth at that;
“Crucify him,” they said;
Yet Jesus rose and saved us all.

God of the unexpected,
You know the least among us;
“You are my beloved,” You say,
And we rise up to follow You.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
