I shared a couple of days ago on the topic of God stooping down and it seemed to not only strike a chord with some of my readers, – Thanks guys for responding and commenting. But that phrase “God stooped down” resonated over and over in my heart. I could hear it at night as I lay in bed and in the morning again it rolled over and over in my thoughts as I went about my chores. I hope you will like the little verse I wrote today that shares as best as I am able the echoes in my heart.
Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? Psalm 113:5-6, NIV
On the sixth day in morning the Lord God stooped down Scooped clay from the earth to make man from the ground He bent down lower still to breathe life into him Then smiled to see man’s first day begin As they walked through the garden God showed him the trees The elephants, zebras and mountains and seas But with all that God made Adam still was alone So God gently bent down to form Eve from his bones But when they saw fruit that God said not to take They ignored His command and death was awake Yet God wasn’t finished - He did not walk away He just waited and watched till His chosen day When at Bethlehem’s stable He gently stooped down And entered our world in the dark of that town Till on a hill and a cross God stooped lower still Took the nails and the thorns so we could be healed Then sadly His friends took Him down from the tree Placed Him in the tomb where no one could see Till on the third day God rolled back the stone And gave us new life as He gently stooped down!
