We are, and without knowing, all connected spiritually to God. Ever thought how?

Last night I started thinking, as I lay there in my bed,

Just how Gods Spirit touches us, was running through my head.

How each and every person, no matter where they are,

Were linked to Him without a doubt,  just like a guiding star.


I knew of course that many souls were truly unaware

That God still lived within them, perhaps they didn`t care?

A sudden thrill ran through me, because Jesus was my friend,

His light is  shining for, right through until the end.


This feeling of belonging seemed to open wide my eyes,

Did this strange attraction work like a magnet from the skies?

Was this part of Gods great plan, to keep in touch with all,

Did He not say that He would know should one small sparrow fall?


So now I got excited and I sat up in my bed,

As scientific formulas pounded through my head.

Communication systems.  Radar. Even fiber optic mail

Weren`t really in the running… compared to Gods eclectic scale.


Yes when it comes to magic, no human can compete

With the communication system that our Lord laid at our feet.

He`s there when `ere we need Him. We don`t need a phone or cell,

We only need to trust in Him and all will soon be well.
