What can stop the wind from blowing
where it wants to blow,
what can stop my heart from going
where it wants to go?
What can stop my loving you
forever and a day,
what can take God from my heart
and force me not to pray?

What is more than Jesus' love,
more awesome than His grace,
what is better than His joy
and what can take His place?
What if man were left alone
to save his sorry soul,
what could mankind do or say
to stop sin's final toll?

What's more vile than Satan's plan
to kill, steal and destroy,
what's more wicked than his dreams
for every girl and boy?
What could stop him triumphing
if Jesus turned His back,
what could block the devil's path
and thwart his next attack?

What do rich folks need more of
and don't have some to spare,
what do poor have plenty of,
in fact, more than their share?
And what, if stacked from end-to-end
could reach up to the sky,
and yet, if you ate all there was
then you would surely die!

The answer to this riddle,
as by now you've surely guessed,
is worthy of our worrying
until we're quite possessed...
It's what I'll make by writing this,
how much these words will bring:
it's Nothing, Nada, Zero, Zilch!
that's right ~ Not anything!!

~ Connie ~

"Ah, Lord GOD! behold, Thou hast made the heaven and the earth
by Thy great power and stretched out arm,
and there is nothing too hard for Thee:
Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands,
and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers
into the bosom of their children after them:
the Great, the Mighty God,
the LORD of hosts, is His name."
(Jeremiah 32:17-18 KJV)

What a tremendous riddle, Connie! I always like Samson's riddles in the Bible, too...

I haven't seen hide nor hair of you for so long, Sister...and I miss you! I just keep praying you will return soon. You have so much of HIM to give to all of us.

Big hugs& much love,

Connie, A fine riddle indeed. Full of inspirational and thought provoking questions. Without God we are doomed! How lucky we are that He chose to come to earth in the person of Jesus in order to redeem us. A brilliant write, Connie, from one Christian to another.

God Bless

Another breathtaking parable in enigmatic form, that shows that loving kindness is what is sorely needed in our despairing world.
No other way is there...except by the Son to the Father...
