I Moved

by Martin Peter Mburu

I once moved from God in anger. 
I wandered looking for better alternatives.
I needed a replacement. 
I kept waiting for him to strike in anger. 
Or whip right thinking about me. 
I lined my path with a pavement of conditions. 
But He kept on disappointing me.  
I ran out of the pathway,
I ran out of conditions,
I ran out of options;
I moved back toward him.

He had not moved;
He never moves. 
Like the prodigal one I was, He showered me with joy and celebration.
I was back home.
He had been waiting.  
I looked back, His mercies, love and faithfulness moved with me.
Daily, He left markers and whispers of His unconditional love.
Daily He waited patiently for my eyes to see the right way. 
But I had blinded myself. 

He remains unmoved. 
He never moves.
No matter where what He has created goes,
He remains unmoved in His unconditional love.
