The essence of God is not just a façade,
God’s loveliness is not just a façade.
God’s essence does exist; it’s not added on by others,
and surely not something that changes with eras, time, and place.
The things God does, which are too small to be mentioned,
which are insignificant in man’s eyes,
which, in the thoughts of man, God would never ever do,
it is these very small things that can really show
God’s genuineness and His loveliness.
He isn’t pretentious; His disposition and essence
has no exaggeration, no disguise or arrogance.
He never boasts but instead, with a faithful and true attitude,
He loves, cares for, and leads the humans that He made.
No matter how much they appreciate,
no matter how much they can feel,
or how much they can see,
it is true that God is doing these, doing all these things.
It is true that God is doing these, doing all these things.
