TESTING

Does God still rule the universe

With everything around?

Including what Satan turned about

Whatever He here found?

.

.

So many poisonous creatures

On land and waters, too!

The air alone seems satisfied

To be breathed as we all do!

.

.

But even there some can be found

Disruptive to feelings,

Like, itching from sun’s hot rays

With plain sweat dealing.

.

.

“Curse God and die!”  What Job’s wife yells,

Plain sick of all his cries!

Easy to reject that crazy idea

As Satan’s idea implies!

.

.

Ashes from his fire do not help much

But determination wins!

Does Job bless God and thank?  No,

But at least he does not sin!

.

.

Why then does God dress him down so?

Maybe to emphasize

His right Divine to test everyone!

Testing no surprise!

.

.

All God’s children should expect

This, what we all need!

Not to question God’s overall as

In His pastures we feed!

.

.

Reasons not often plain to us

But unquestionable!

Just thank God thoughts we can

Once out of the cradle.

.

.

Not to fear!  God teaches us

Once we have learned to walk

The straight and narrow path He trod

And talk the way He talked,

Takes a while!

.
