Blaming God? - Poem by joseph freeman

What fools men are
Violence tends their way
Darkness fills their heart
Misery fills their day
Yet they choose their own path
They revel in that life
Filling their days
With trouble & strife
Till the weight of it all
Becomes too much to bear
The life they built
Caves in on them there
Then they cry out to God
Blaming Him for their grief
Cursing their Creator
When they find no relief
Yet He pardons them
Comforts them still
Though they deny him
Struggling with His will
That men only knew
The peace God can give
To the man who chooses
In His light to live

    yes, isnt it strange that when we choose to put our lives in our own hands and we mess it up so badly we tend to blame God when He had nothing to do with it.....Is strange how we as people would only run to God when we wanted something so badly..I for one and i am sure many do this..I go to God every morning for guidance to what I am to do for that day..During the day I thank Him for all that happens to me whether good or bad for we learn from both..At nite I thank Him for all blessings he brought my way...God shouldnt be blamed for our poor choices, , or givin in to fleshly temptations..for we are the ones who choose it..Im sure we case God to shed tears.......Love you and CoCo (Report) Reply
