Beyond Afar

by: Shirley Satterfield

Beyond Afar 💫 ✨

God is God
And He stretches beyond
An expanding universe.
And I am made
In His unlimited, limitless image.

He is the God
Of the everlasting Sundance,
The God of all abundance.
You can’t put Him in no box.
He towers above the tallest rocks-
Expanding beyond the mass of stars.

He’ll take this lowly Man
Beyond afar.
