There is a God

Everyday I watch/listen to the news as I eat my breakfast, get dressed and otherwise get ready to trot off to my place of employment. Everyday this week I've stopped to listen about the funerals and memorials honoring all the kiddos and brave adults whose lives were cut short last week in CT. I've heard people ask "Where was God when this happened" He was there. So was the devil.

As we start to try to heal from tragedies such as this one we must remember what is important, what kind of values do we want to pass on to our children so that they may pass them on to theirs someday. Hold them tight, love them, discipline them, teach them respect of others as well as themselves and remember there is a God, we just need to believe, serve and trust.

Try and put your arms around
the 100 year old tree
Climb up on a horse
and let it run full speed
Take a look out at the world from 30,000 feet
on your next flight

Watch a flock of birds
against the morning sun
Close your eyes and listen
to the river run
Catch a firefly in your hand
or a raindrop on your tongue
That's right

There is a God
There is a God
There is a God
How much proof do you need?

Plant a seed and see
what comes out of the ground
Find the heartbeat on your baby's ultrasound
In a few years hear it laughing,
and don't it sound like a song?

Stop and think about
what you don't understand
Things like life and love
and how the world began
Hear the doctor say he can't explain it,
but the cancer is gone

There is a God
There is a God
There is a God
How much proof do you need?

Science says it's all just circumstance
That this whole world is just an accident
But if you want to shoot that theory down,
just take a look around

Oh just look around

Now there is a God
There is a God
Oh there is a God,
How much proof do you need?

Now, There is a God. ~ Trent Willmon
