The winds gather strength, as they move across the sea,
the waves churn and toss, as people in the storm’s path flee.
Mass confusion and panic, engulf the regions that lie ahead,
as fear for property and life, lead scared people to dread.
Some blame God in heaven, for sending calamity their way,
while others seek His protection, as they kneel and pray.
Why is it that our LORD gets the credit, for the beauty in life,
but is the first one blamed, when the weather causes strife?
Let’s put the blame, where the blame truly belongs,
it is Satan that causes, all the troubles and the wrongs.
Just look at the Book of Job, to see what that chief demon did,
the attack on Job’s family and health, in his takeover bid.
Remember mankind’s contribution to this mess, if you please,
could it be that science and pollution, cause storms and disease?
Instead of looking for explanations and theories of pending demise,
let’s lift our hearts and eyes, as we look up to the skies.
Have faith in God, and His master plan for each one of us,
don’t get caught up in the world, all the distractions and fuss.
For this life is only temporary, a test of our attitude and behavior,
keep the faith, help each other, and rely on our loving Savior.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” – Psalm 23:4 (KJV)
