There seems to be plagues upon our nation,
As upon Egypt in the days of old.
God’s judgment is falling upon us,
Just as in His Word, we have been told.
All He asks is for us to follow Him
To willingly walk close by His side;
To show His love as we deal with others,
And in His great love, we are to abide.
Many are choosing their own selfish way;
Not allowing others to intervene;
Removing obstacles with their own hands,
So that the gods of this world can be seen.
Children are allowed to grow on their own,
Or lives are taken before they are born.
The many around us that is hurting,
Are ignored or met with great scorn.
Drugs are used as a way of escape
From the pleading of God’s tender call.
Pleasure is the only thing that is sought,
Though God reaches for them with His all.
No longer does God seem to be recognized
As the Creator, our returning King.
Fearlessly, He has been totally ignored,
Though we know, God’s judgment ‘twill bring.
But God always preserves a remnant;
If we look, we will find some there.
His remnant must band closely together,
As they bow humbly, He answers their prayer.
Then, the blessings instead of cursing,
Upon our great nation will surely roll;
Because, our God always keeps His own Word
Once again He’ll bring great joy to our soul.

New King James Version (NKJV)
2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
Great piece Verna...sorrowfully true.
