A State of Emergency


A State of Emergency

I hear sirens screaming in the background to address an emergency

Another life is lost in a fatal accident that alters my scope of reality

What could have saved this victim who will never take another breath?

Because it was stolen away from another’s mistake that caused his death

 How do you tell someone who just lost a loved one that it will be okay?
They suffer with grief and continue to wonder just what to think and say
If only words could comfort the pain they feel inside that won’t wash away
Could the outcome have been different if you had taken time to pray?

 Oh Lord why does it have to hurt so bad when a loved one passes on?

Do you stop to think if they had Christ in their life now that they are gone?

Are you showing the world the love of Christ that lives inside of you?

Cause God will bless a faithful heart that is willing to serve and be true

 We need burning hearts that seek a passion to nurture wounds that hurt
Be the change that this world needs so others know there worth more than dirt
Reflect God’s image so others can see and feel the power of the Trinity
Build a bridge that will bring salvation by your solid faith you have in Thee

 For we live in a harsh world that violently attacks any one who is religious
They reduce all your beliefs and morals and play it out to be superstitious
How does this twisted world think they can destroy my God for good?
You cannot kill our invisible Creator; this life of ours is so misunderstood

 He is a supernatural being that has infinite wisdom, power, and love
Who can measure such greatness as this and reach the clouds high above
For heaven is a place we dream about going but can only see when we die
Acceptance in Jesus Christ is the key to this paradise that gleams in my eye

 So tell me is Christ alive in your heart and if so can you prove it to me?
Does an uncontrollable fire burn inside like the sun that illuminates thee?
?Is this decision of life worth dying for and if so will you lay it all down?
We all have a chance to live in God’s Kingdom and wear a golden crown

 Eternity is much closer in reach than it feels or could ever be anticipated?
My God is never too far away to hear your desperate prayers you waited
To have answered and when He finally delivered you through you knew for sure
He holds the universe in His hands and has the remedy that will bring a cure

 A dose of spiritual medicine to heal this dying nation sadly going to hell
Let His glory shine for everyone to witness so others can hear and go tell
Since I can’t address the importance of this enough so I am here to pass it on
An overwhelming love that has me caught in a whirlwind that comes then is soon gone

I can’t walk away from my faith because I’m here to bring the world hope
Light up the night like a firefly to bring sparks that will help you cope
Because everybody deserves a chance to feel love like never before
A comfort that only a mother and father can bring a son or daughter they adore

 So with my eyes truly fixed on you I cannot be moved or ever shaken
I must live my life with no regrets for my eternal soul can never be taken
My heart will explode like fireworks when I feel His power surge on through
And I will know for sure that my God is here now and forever to carry you

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
