DON'T BLAME GOD  

It isn't right to blame the Lord for trials and tribulation,
And ask Him Why and Wherefore when we suffer great vexation.
It's not His hand that strikes us down when sickness comes to call;
And not His will we bend and break when Death, at length, befalls;

For good and bad are blessed and cursed, we all must bear our burden.
The world's not fair and it takes strength to face the final curtain.
To make it through this vale of tears and claim at last the victory,
Takes steadfast faith in God above and a love that's spanned the centuries;

For when it seems that all is lost and there's nowhere else to turn,
He's promised if we call on Him we need not be concerned.
He'll give us strength to go the mile, He'll take us through the fire.
It's not His wish that we should fall, He wants to take us higher.

Salvation is His wish for us,
To see us live unfettered,
To see us live abundantly,
In Truth and Grace forever.

Great faith is shown here
When things don't go the way we wnt it we turn on God and blame Him for our own failures in life. We find it hard to accept that sometimes He is only testing our strength. Profound write Judy

VERY TRUE
Your poem answers a common concern of both Christians and others who want to blame God for all of their troubles. As you point out so well, God isn't to blame for all the bad things that often happen to everyone, and all we can do is to wait and trust in Him. I especially like that you ended your poem with quotes from the Bible to back up what you say, not it just being your own opinion. Thank you for sharing your poem.
