Too MANY times GOD is Misunderstood
GOD is good and yes sometimes He
can be misunderstood, we can’t always
understand why he allows this or that to
happen to us. That’s why we still mumble
and fuss, there are times we feel like shouting
LORD why are you doing this to me.
Haven’t I given my whole life to thee?
what more do you want from me?
Why are all these trials being hurled
at me?. Oh Lord when will you look
down from your throne and hear
my humble plea? Are you hearing me
or are you just ignoring me?.
I pray for blessings and yet nothing has
come my way. Then I heard a still small
voice and I heard him say, my child I love
you more than anyone could. I give you food
and water to go from day to day.
I am a God of variety and that’s why I made
some rich and poor, I made some of my
children white, yellow and some black,
some strong and some weak, some loving
and some caring. My child my voice you will
not always hear speaking aloud to you.
Look around you and see the sceneries I’ve
blessed you with every evening I paint a new
sunset in the sky. My beautiful rainbows are
sometimes smeared across the sky.
I am your father , I am your porter I am
the one that created you, I alone knows
what it takes to mold you. I don’t need
you to tell me what I should and shouldn’t
do I will never give you more than you can
bear and those words I want to echo in your
Sit back and let me carve out something
good from in you.
I hear your every whisper and prayer.
I don’t need you to keep shouting at me. I
am the father and you are the child let me do
as I do. Don’t I always come in the darkest hour?
when all hope seems as though its gone?
When your sails are thorn and your ship is
tossed and battered? Don’t I come around and
calm the raging sea ? I have billions of children
to tend to everyday you have one sometimes
two and feel like the whole world is upon you.
I need you to know that everything happens
for a reason and there is nothing you can do.
For I am in control of you, you may not always
like the way I handle you, but it is only divine love
can see beyond the trials and temptations that
I’ve set before you.
Let go and let me have my way and all will be well
