God is Always GOOD




He was gone for all of that time

No one knew what his life was like

He could have been a thief or murderer

Only God knows all that he’s done

Why would Daddy let him come back home?


He destroyed everyone’s trust

He left here with half of Daddy’s belongings

Where did he live while gone?

No doubt he was with drunkards and harlots

People who live in the darkest thoughts

With only doubt, fear and despair

He was living with the dreaded devils

His life was shadowed by his failures


He shouldn’t have had the nerve to come back

Home, for him, should be off limits

He shouldn’t be allowed to live here anymore


But Daddy killed the fatted calf for him

Gave him the best robe and his ring

Embraced him with a joy that only knows

He is the beloved son, his heart and soul

Why hasn’t he ever killed a calf for me, though?


I asked Daddy why he was going to all this trouble

For a son who had only used and abused him

Given him nothing but worry and strife

Filled his mind with only regret, pain and trials

I asked him why, but Daddy only said…


**“Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.”


So Daddy killed the fatted calf for my brother

My resentful, bitter heart was spurned

But I know my Daddy is filled with pure love

And He loves the prodigal with a spirit

That can only be described as merciful…

Compassionate and tolerant…

Much like the forgiveness that God sends

To the one who repents and believes

His grace is like a light shining through

The soul who knows His love is the treasure

That every prodigal seeks to accept


And, I, the son who was righteous yet resentful

Need his forgiveness just as much

As the roguish prodigal…


All I need to do is ask, and God’s forgiveness

Will reach down and absolve me of my wrongs

I will ask and receive… because, like my Daddy..

God is always GOOD!


**Luke 15: 31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. 32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
