The Good That God is Doing (a poem)

“As all of this craziness is going on outside of our window, God is working. All the things that He is doing… using Christians as the hands and feet of Jesus to serve other people. That stuff doesn’t make headlines. That stuff doesn’t trend on Twitter. That doesn’t mean that it’s not happening.” -Allie Beth Stuckey

The good that God is doing often
Doesn’t make the news
So much of what is happening is
Hidden from our view

Tragedy can dominate the
Headlines in our feed
Those with an agenda know what
Makes us click and read

There’s no use to be naive, to
Ignore, or to pretend
That there aren’t evil forces that
Conspire and contend

And still we can be hopeful of the
Things that we don’t see
The quiet acts of kindness and the
Generosity

The good that God is doing often
Doesn’t make the news
When everything seems dark remember
God is on the move!
