I Needed and I Knew
by Dahni © 2014, all rights reservedI needed to see God in the midst of so much fear, uncertainty and confusion and I saw you I needed God to call my name and give me peace to my restless soul and I heard you call my name I needed God to comfort me, to heal my body and my soul and I felt your hand upon my shoulder I needed God to give me just a taste of hope and I tasted the honey in your sweet words to me I needed God to tell me He loved me and I felt your warm embrace and your kiss upon my cheek I needed God and I know, He is with me, whenever you are near
Show me God! I can’t see Him! Look all around you!
God has no hands, but our hands of which to give any bread
He has no feet, but our feet, to move among the almost dead
We say that we are His and He is ours
Deeds are the proofs of that not words
and these are the proving hoursNote: There have been many that have claimed authorship of this poem or it has been attributed to others, believed to have written it. From my perspective, I don’t know who wrote it nor do I believe anyone else does either! There are several adaptations or versions if you will. Well, I changed a few words – “them” to “any” on the first line and “proof” to “proofs” in the third line. So, I will close with this of which I am quite sure is the truth, for me and that is, the author is –
None will ever need to ask and we will never need to explain, argue, defend or ever tell a single soul. The world will know it is God in Christ in you, by the love you give to them –
without condition, reservation, judgment or hesitation.
“They’ll know we are Christians by our love.”A line from the Christian Hymn, “They’ll Know We Are Christians” (also known as “They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love” or “We Are One in the Spirit”). It was written in 1968 by then-Catholic priest, Peter R. Scholtes. It is inspired by The Bible, the gospel of John
“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
The Bible, the gospel of John 13:35, King James Version
