(513) Bad Things Happen To- - Poem by Melvina Germain

Bad things happen to good people and we ask the
question why. Did anyone ask questions about our
Savior Jesus when he was nailed upon the cross.
We whine and cry and blame God for our troubles.
Do we listen to his whispers when he tells us what
to do in order to save us and see us through. Are
we thankful for the delays created by him in order
to keep us out of harms way. Do we thank him when
He shows us the truth of our so called friends or do
we blame him for the outcome of a bad relationship.

Yes, bad things happen to good people but look what
happened to God. His only son was beaten and nailed
Upon the cross until death took him to rest. Bad things
happen to God. Did we ask why, when one of his most
cherished Angels turned against him and became the
devil of this earth. Bad things happen to God. Do we
Ask why when we see that his children have turned
Against him in worship of pagan Gods and have no
Interest in his son, bad things happen to God. Do we
Ask why when we hear his name used in vain, nooo,
Bad things happen to God.

Bad things happen to good people it’s true, but we can
always rely on God, let’s put our faith where it should
be and glorify his name for he deserves all the glory
let our lives become rich when we praise Him and tell
his awesome story.

    Mel, as you say bad things happen to God, but none of ever question why. We are so wrapped up within ourselves to worry about him. But when the chips are down in are life who do we turn to and ask to put them right. Maybe when we pray to him for ourselves and others, maybe we should say something just for him. Just what we needed for Sunday a wake up call. Top marks and thanks for reminding all of us.
    David
