Nothing Too Hard

The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?"
Jeremiah 32:26-27

You spoke the universe into being,
a task so big we cannot
see the end.
Yet You stooped to form mankind
from dust, with tenderness You made
a friend.

You walked with them in the cool
of each day, content as Creator
with Adam and Eve.
Yet in that day when they hid from You,
You cared even in their sin,
You did not leave.

You raised a people from Abraham's
nearly dead seed, and blessed them
in covenant.
They took Your gifts ... Law, Land, and Love
yet turned away to
what they'd want.

You drove sinners out, first from Eden,
then from the Land, as lawbreakers
are always judged.
You brought them back, restored 
fortunes and families and covenant in
Your great love.

You sent Your Son to redeem us all
and set us free from all the damage
that sin can do.
He gives us life, and hope... and peace.
We are made new. Nothing is
too hard for You.
