wednesday wonder: God is today, a poem




God is Today 

God is today. 
He is not yesterday. 
He is not tomorrow.

God is the dawn, wakening earth to life; 
the first morning ever, 
shining with infinite innocence; a revelation 
older than all beginning, younger than youth. 
God is the noon, blinding the eye of the mind 
with the blaze of truth. 
God is the sunset, casting over creation 
a color of glory 
as He withdraws into mysteries of light.

God is today. 
He is not yesterday. 
He is not tomorrow. 
He never is night.
