CALAMITIES

Every time there’s a calamity

The first thing that’s on our mind,

Is why God did not stop it or intercede

With the many questions we may find.

But sin is sin in His pure eyes

And if He were to eradicate,

He’d have to wipe us off the face of the earth

Due to the fallen nature of our state.

Calamities will always happen;

It’s a sad fact but it is true,

But it’s our reaction and our attitude

That will determine what we do.

Do we fall upon our knees?

Or do we try to take the reigns?

Do we place blame on everything or anyone

Where much anxiety remains?

Or do we simply trust in God

Knowing that His will be done,

To refine and chisel our character

Or do we choose from Him to run?

And let’s not underestimate

The rebuke of the Lord,

When we fail to have a healthy fear

Or to have reverence for His word.

Because life is found in His wisdom

To turn from wicked ways,

To repent and trust in the living God

To find peace in every day.

Calamities are nightmares

But unfortunately they arise,

And the degree of crisis will determine the grace

That helps us to overcome and rise.

And let’s remember there is always help

Where there’s hope in all we do,

Because precious souls provide much kindness

With their assistance and support too.

This life is just a vapour

With all tribulations and its tests,

Since eternal life is forever

Where the Lord desires our best.

But we need to trust in Him

Knowing that better days are ahead,

Because His glorious eternity

Dwells inside us when we’re led.

“Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares…Because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity;”  Proverbs 1:20-26

“Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.  Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord.”  Proverbs 1:28-29

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.  I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity;”  Jeremiah 29:11-14

“Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity.  Amen.”  Ephesians 6:24
