CAUGHT OFF-GUARD

Wake-up call: 5:30 AM
What's that trembling I feel?
What's that rumbling I hear?
It's God crying for attention.

Listen, observe, learn to read Him -
causing the earth to reel,
filling men's hearts with fear;
It’s God defying rebellion.

Recall:   Ezekiel 38 -
All people shall tremble
and the cliffs will crumble.
"I am the LORD, this now they know."

Admit that quakes intimidate
Answers are found in your Bible.

“Don’t know where to look,,”  you grumble.
"Now whose fault is that?" hear Satan crow.

Ezekiel 38: 19-23

That poem is convicting, for sure. His Word has all the answers, but we don't look at it often enough. "Answers are found in your Bible." That's the truth! Thank you for that poem.

About the Poet
Growing older with some pains and discomfort, graying hair, glasses, partial plate and hearing aids but with complete assurance of my eternal domain. Saved by choice by God�s free grace by Jesus� life, death and resurrection. Born and bred in the Bluegrass State for 24 years, I crossed the Ohio River and became a Hoosier forever thereafter until that time God calls me to my heavenly home. Christian for fifty-five plus years. Church musician and SS teacher for most all of my Wednesdays and Sundays. Public school teacher for thirty-six school terms; retired with a class now of three grandchildren off and on during the week. Wife for half my life to the same superman. Mama to two unique sons. Mother-in-law to a fine daughter; Nana to one darling girl and two handsome guys. God has blessed me abundantly; thank you, Father. God quiets my hackles; God quickens my heart; God quells my hunger. Blessed be His holy name.
