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.
