Who Made the Move?

Today is Saturday and that means this is the day I bring you a new song. I haven’t written it yet, but I have an original tune in mind for this. Hopefully I will get the tune done quickly.

Earlier this week I ran across something I had heard before, “If God seems far away, guess who moved.” At least to me, what makes that work is the word, “seems.” When I had heard it before I understood completely what was implied in with the question. If God seems far away, we are the one who moved.

I started out with that end in mind. After working my way through the song, I finished with a different idea.

People say that God-is all around.
If you look, God can always be found.
God was not here, when things fell apart.
God is with us, let the laughs now start.
I am lost but making my own way,
I wander but to God I won’t pray.
I think I know but I cannot prove,
Let me ask you, did God make the move?

It was God who made the move?
It was, God who made the move?

God was right here and I did not go.
God drew near and I refused to show.
God is out there, but what does that prove
God doesn’t care and God made the move?

I had it all friend that is no lie.
God took It and left me high and dry.
Left behind, alone, but couldn’t prove,
Stuck in it all, and God made the move?

It was God who made the move?
It was God who made the move?

God was here and still, I did not go
God drew near, and I refused to show
God is out there, but what does that prove
God doesn’t care and God made the move?

I know, God did this to me.
Even now, God won’t, leave me be.
God gave but soon it was gone.
I am God’s small lowly pawn….
Stop, Wait, give me time to think.
I’m who got life, out of sync.
There is nothing for me to prove.
Now I know who, made the move.

I’m sure I know now, who made the move
I’m sure I know now, who made the move

God is here, and will not let me go.
God draws near, and grace on me will flow.
God is out there, but what does that prove?
God loves me and always makes the move?

God is out there, but what does that prove?
God loves me and always makes the move?

I pray you have a blessed weekend.

Seeking the Genuine,
Keith
