Too MANY times GOD is Misunderstood

Updated on January 3, 2013

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

with you.

      Hi Pollyanna sweedie a good night to you and thanks again for the birthday wishes I must write a hub on how God has blessed me try others on this bday. That's true whenever we try to stay in the spirit someone tries to get us back in the natural. Polly I know we'll meet one day if not here in the hereafter we'll sing and shout and dance about. I admire you for taking heed to God's word

      Me, as well as others, always are quick to blame God when things go wrong when most of the time we have ourselves to blame. We tend to overlook what He has given us and what He has done for us. This is a great poem that describes what many feel inside. Great work

      Happy Birthday, so sorry I missed it. Beautiful writing and it is hard even knowing we should never doubt, guess that is why we should live in the spirit as much as possible and ignore the flesh. Since everyone around us is not in the spirit though it would be hard to stay there...and our Father understands that.

      Such a powerful message. And so true. Sometimes occurrences require us to leave it in God's plans.

      Beautiful. You have a way with words. The last paragraph is the message here. Although we may not always understand why, God is in control. Have you noticed what happens when we try to do things our way? We always end up seeking God again. Happy Birthday my friend. I wish you all the best.
