When did the world get so upside down, Lord? So… all turned inside out?
“When the woman saw…and ate…and also gave some to her husband… and he ate…” (Genesis 3:6)
OK, so it started way back then. But is it my imagination, Lord… or is it actually getting worse?
When did Right become Wrong? And Wrong become Chic? And Chic become Mainstream? When did Truth become Lies? And Lies become Lyrics? To songs that ring off-key?
When did War start masquerading as Peace? And Sins start claiming to be Civil Rights? When did Friends become Enemies? And Enemies become Heroes?
“For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work…” (2 Thessalonians 2:7)
When will Your Mercy become Judgment, Lord? And Your Judgment become our Undoing? And our Undoing become our Rebuilding?
When will Upside Down be made Right-side Up?
Not soon enough!
Or so I like to think. Until I realize what that really means. And then I’m not in such a hurry anymore.
“The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
Yes, Lord. The world is Upside Down! Too much “having our cake and eating it, too?” I think I prefer the pineapple kind. 🙂
Eager for Your return…
Grateful for Your delay…
