Behind the [:]

“And when they saw him, they worshipped him : but some doubted.” Matthew‬ ‭28:17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“Don’t be the believer behind the colon, doubting.” – Mr. Stan Lawrenson 

Don’t be the believer behind the colon, doubting
Still doubting
After seeing miracles
and wonders
and powers
and glory
and the impossible

Don’t be the believer behind the colon, doubting
Working to get to places
You can’t get to on your own
Starving yourself until
You’re just skin and bones.

Don’t be the believer behind the colon, doubting
Doing right for the wrong reasons
Wondering if all this work
Amounts to anything
Wondering if there’s really a King
Worth pleasing or if all of this is just fleeting.

Don’t be the believer behind that colon, doubting
Putting on act
Trying to move mountains with feeble arms.

Don’t be the believer behind that colon, doubting
Listening to the world
Not living by faith, but
By sight

Don’t be the believer behind that colon, doubting
Looking back at what’s been left behind
Counting the cost,
Not looking at the cross

Don’t doubt Someone
Who has yet to fail

But if you are behind that colon
Unsure in this path
Questioning and wondering
I want to remind you:
It is worth it

There is a God who loves you
A God who cares
A God who is just, love, and fair.
A God who knows better
Than you and I do
A God who went to die,
Despite knowing that no matter how
Hard He’d try
You would still be doubting.
