Why Do Some Say They Love God, Yet

Why Do Some Say They Love God, Yet Curse HIM?


I was walking beside a Christian

 the other day...

I was talking with him. 

As we traveled on our way.


The next moment, he grumbled

and complained.

Becoming very angry...  He yelled out..

And cursed God's name...


"How can you curse the one you say you love?"

In his moment of pain... 

He blamed God above...


As I walked away, I recall the look

of anguish on his face.

I couldn't believe what happened in this place.


When we endure pain,

 anguish and turmoil...

We need to be careful not to let our anger "boil..."


We need to recognize God!  And who he really is!

It's because of his mercy... 

That we breathe and live!


May his love wash us clean of all

complaining and cursin'.

And his grace help us to be more of a Godly person.


During any affliction...  God will always

 provide a way out...

This is God.  And what his character is about!


Allow his son...  Jesus... 

To calm your worries and fear.

Knowing that he's here to help....

And is always near!


He knows the pain and frustrations

you may encounter...

His blood will help you to overcome! 

This very hour!


God remains faithful!

  His promises will leave us never!

He's worthy of all praise...

 Both NOW and FOREVER!!!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
