Suddenly!

Mom inspired this poem, and she said it was on her heart today, and wanted me to re-post it. I’m happy to to do so, because… that’s my job!

SUDDENLY

 

Oft’ times our prayers seem to go unanswered

We start thinking, maybe God doesn’t care

We wait, ever patient, stand on our faith

I’ve been known to stand on an ear

 

No answer comes, we grumble and groan

Quite certain that He doesn’t love us

We try to outguess Him, figure Him out

As He smiles down from high above us

 

He shakes His head, goes on with His work

Surely chuckles about our impatience

For He’ll not let us down, in spite of our frowns

And complaints about His expedience

 

In due time, He would tell us, should we but hear

Good things come to those who wait

For the want that you want, if it’s worth the wanting

Is still good whether early or late

I hope you enjoy it.

I’m a guessin…

… y’all must not like the stories broken down into small parts, like I did It’s a Dog’s Life today. I kinda thought it would be like the old-time dime novels, but guess I thought like Nelly. I reckon I’ll stick to the short and sweet, like the poem that follows….

He will answer, my friend…. Have faith in Him

You will have, and have it abundantly

His blessings will flow, and then you will know

Our God is a God of suddenly
