Did you see God today?
Was God cradling the child sleeping soundly on the cold pavement?
Was God guiding the blind man as he raised his palm towards the car window?
Was God right beside the father peddling candies on the street?
Was God sitting on a pew as the rain fell unceasingly?
Did you hear the voice of God today?
Was God speaking through the pastor with his deep and beautiful voice?
Was God whispering a prayer so that the flood would not drown the young and old?
Was God crying with the children who feel hungry amidst people passing by?
Was God condemning the corruption that enriches the powerful and denies the poor life?
Do you still believe God sees only you
As people are felled by bullets in Zamboanga, Syria or Palestine?
Do you still believe that God has chosen only you
As people are enslaved, tortured, and disappeared for profit and for mines?
Can we speak of God having blessed us
As millions go hungry in the world today?
Can we turn away from our suffering people?
Can we say we truly felt God in church today?
