“If God Was Like You and Me”

By Min. Allan T. Roy Nebraska December 9, 1963 – July 23, 2020

The other day I was thinking, what a world this would be,
If the Holy God we serve, was just like you and me.
What if when we disobeyed, He’d pout and hold a grudge?
While we tearfully begged forgiveness, His cold heart refused to budge.
Look at all that He created, what if He kept it to Himself,
Trees, rivers, flowers, mountains hid away on heaven’s shelf.
What if He was so self-centered, never giving thought to us?
And saw us for our actions, and disdained is with disgust.
What if He did not take the time, to help us when we’re down?
And when we called, He’d just pretend He didn’t hear a sound.
What if He didn’t bless our hearts, to tell us what is right?
Without God’s loving kindness, what would this world be like?
Oh, probably bout a zillion times as bad as now or worse.
If God were too lazy to fight the devil, we would all be cursed.
If He was stingy like we are, you think that He would give,
His one and only Son to death, so you and I can live.
Remember we don’t serve a man, and in man do not trust,
We serve a Holy gracious God, who doesn’t think like us.
Though none of us are prefect, yet for Him let’s strive to be.
Everyday thank God, He’s not like you, Praise God He’s not like me!

Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people,
A heart that forgives the worst,
A mind that forgets the bad,
And a soul that never loses faith in God.
