Man, Numbers, and God

“A God of redemption could break our routine.”

~Switchfoot (Jon Foreman)

 

Man, Numbers, and God

Man versus the world.
Man versus God.
Man versus self.
Man versus everything else.


Number one is a losing battle.
Number two is a lost cause.
Number three is a failure from the start.
Number four is just sad.


Somehow even when every battle is lost men keep on pressing on.
Somehow even when every battle seems won it never is.
Somehow even when every battle ends without violence, blood is still there.
Somehow even when every battle finishes with life, death is always present.


Man is not worthy of such rewards.
Man is not worthy of strength.
Man is not worthy to prosper.
Man is not worthy  of God.


Number one for some reason we get rewards.
Number two we can have strength.
Number three how come we can still prosper?
Number four we are still able to find God.


Somehow we press on
Somehow we are loved
Somehow we have won
Somehow I know it was God
