How Can We Say God Bless America ?

Updated on July 4, 2013

How Can We Say God Bless America ?

How can we even say God Bless America

When we have now turned the wrong way?

We have to wonder if the thought of us

Leaves a bitter taste with our God today .

We started out with great hope and love

And we prospered and grew as He planned,

For the One Who had given us His best

Led us each day in life by His Gentle Hand.

But now God's Laws are not good enough

So we decided to make laws of our own.

Then we felt like we did not need God now,

We thought it was best to leave Him alone.

Like ungrateful children we've gone our way

And have done all in life that we wanted to do.

God's Wrath is falling , we're paying the price,

Because to our first Love we've proved untrue.

We've come to a place unthinkable back then

When God had sent down His Heavenly Love.

If our ancestors can see all that has happened

Their hearts must be breaking in Heaven Above !

What we have now is not what God planned,

Now in Heaven God must turn His Face away .

Someday America will see how far they've fallen

When they meet Christ on the Judgment Day!

Clara Kish


I tried to write something before but nothing

seemed to be right, I woke up this morning

with this message and it was written in a very

short time, It should be a wake up call to

America but we all know that no one will listen.

Man thinks he knows more than God and

someday he will come to realize that without

God we are nothing .God knew there is nothing

like a baby to soften a heart but we refused

the gifts and tore them apart. Man made sinful

laws as if to laugh in God's Face, now we are

starting to pay the price for man's great sins!

      Hello Mabel, I am sorry I didn't get back to you before., thank you for your comment, I always appreciate hearing from you . It is so hard to believe that the country that God gave to us has turned their back on God.I never thought I would see a day like this with all of the evilness everywhere now. I am sure that God would forgive them is they would only repent but that is the problem ,they don't feel any need to repent.All we can do is pray for them . Love, Clara

      Hello Caleb, It's good to hear from you ,you have been pretty quiet lately.It is hard to believe that the wonderful land that God gave us has turned against Him in every way. Never in our lifetime did I ever think I would see all of this evilness come to pass . It is hard to see how man can be so blinded in this day and age , but the Bible told us of such wickedness to come but I guess man thought it was far into the future and that it couldn't happen to us. God didn't spare His own people ,why should He treat us better ,we were just grafted in. We should have been grateful for all that He had done for us but now it seems like they just make a mockery of God. Will any of them ever get it through their head that they are following the wrong Shepherd ? Probably not till Judgment Day. too late then!

      Don't forget mine is tea, I gave up coffee years ago.Yes,$7,000 is about right but maybe we won't be able to buy it for any price, maybe by then it will be just artificial man made drink , you know man is good at improving everything !!!! Bye now ,Clara

      Hi Clara, I always enjoy coming to your site.

      Leviticus, chapter 26 gives us a example of just how much God can push back when a nation pushes God away. We are, as a nation, condoning and promoting homosexual marriage and lifestyle, socialism, murder of babies( abortion), and general lukewarm commitment to Jesus Christ, and we will not get away with it any more than any other nation who has attempted their subjective morality upon God. Current observation, and historical records prove this.

      This hub, as usual, is right on target. Looking forward to our coffee date in the year 2113, but remember, I'll pay for the coffee but you have to leave the tip. What did I say it will be? $7,ooo per cup?

      Hello MsDora, It is always good to hear from you , thank you for your comment. I think as individuals most of us remember how great America used to be and we still love that America but we have lost so much of it now it is hard to recognize it now as the gift of God that it was, IF only the people would turn to The Lord and repent we could still be that way again, but man has drifted so far from God and I see no signs of them turning to Him yet. You have to wonder what it will take for them to realize that we need God The Heavenly Father in this country again! We are having a wake up call now ,what comes next?

      Praise Jesus "Clara" this poem is an oh my moment. WOW! now say it backwards and it still spells WOW! Great hub. God's holiness is the reason He looks away from sin. Thank God for Jesus Christ who satisfied His wrath against us all. The wake up call for America is Jesus Christ! May God continue to enrich you with admonitions and exhortations through the gift of poetry. Again, I say WOW!

      It is the nature of God to bless, so He still blesses. If only we would show as individuals and as a nation how grateful we are!

      Hello Tessie,I am glad to hear from you and I hope that you are feeling a lot better now.I hope that you had a good 4th,I guess the whole family got together and I hope they all had a good time.I tried to think of something to put on here yesterday but nothing seemed to sound right so I went to bed and this morning when I woke up,these words going through my head and it did not take very long to get this poem written. I guess God had other plans about what I was going to put on here. I hope that it hits some hearts and they will come to Him.I guess I had better get off of here and be thinking about going to bed .I'll talk to you later . love,cherry

      Thank you ,Jackie,for your kind words.Who could ever imagined a few years back how much evilness could come in so quickly?That there would be few places in this world that God would be welcomed in. I know the Bible speaks of so many things that will come to pass but reading them and seeing them actually happen is a lot different.Reading them is just that will happen someday but NOW , seeing things as they do come to pass ,it makes it so hard to believe that it actually is going on someplace at this time,and there is no turning back.No do overs now, too late for some to repent! Love, Clara

      Beautiful poem and so true. Every day we do see evil moving in all around us and God being pushed out. Even in things people call good and of God it is against His word so very wrong, even more so to call it of God. I just pray our Savior calls us soon and we witness no wrath of God against all this. ^

      Hello, thanks for your comment.It is reality ,I woke up about 6 this morning with a line or two going through my head ,I sleep with my pen and paper close to me at night because that is when God gives me words to put in a poem, that is why I say God's and my poems. He doesn't want anybody to be lost but if people won't come to him they will be . They have their free will ,accept or reject Him ,it is their choice. clara

      Hello Faith, Yes , I woke up about 6 this morning and the title started going through my head. Most of the poems are written in the night, I will get a line or two and then write the rest of it ,sometimes I stop and change a word or two , I guess God had a better word to put in there. That is why I say, God's and my poems .

      That is my prayer that many will come to Him , not just my loved ones but many more ,too.We don't want to see anyone lost but especially our loved ones who are the nearest to our hearts.Thanks for your comment, love, Clara

      Awesome wake up call dearest Clara!!! Yes, wake up America!

      Well, it sounds like God gave this to you this morning.

      Yes, it is written, and we know the victory is already one, and that one day, every eye will see and every knee will bow, but just pray that it is not too late for so many!

      God bless you, Faith Reaper

      Hello Karen , you must have been setting there as soon as that poem came on, I just put it on here a short time ago and I was surprised that it came on here today or if at all.I could not even think of anything to write yesterday , nothing seemed right,I woke up about 6 this morning and the title was going through my head, so I started writing and in a short time it was finished ,so you have to know that God was behind this.The government has taken God out of everything but they can't take him out of our hearts. Thank God for that. I think there must be a special place in Hell for people that makes all o f those ungodly laws.I think I will write a poem about that sometime, I have some ideas.I think it i s too late for a turn around, like Jesus said ,It is written so I guess what will be will be.Thank s for your comment, love,Clara

      A stirring poem Clara. Although I am not American, it rings of truth to me when we see how bullish the American government behaves - to others as well as their own citizens. I pray that a turn around will happen - if it is not too late already. God Bless you and all His children there.
