Doom and Gloom is now looming
Looming from the east to the west
Looming in the states we love best
Looming where the sun don’t shine
Looming where nature does incline
Looming where we work and play
Looming where we see another day
Looming where we give our cause
Looming where we make our laws
Looming where we would go to eat
Looming where we walk the street
Looming where we sing a new song
Looming where we pray all day long
Doom and gloom, when will it all end
When our senses once begin again
When common sense comes back
When normal living is a matter of fact
When leaving home is the way to go
When staying at home is a no-show
When we will forget the unworthy task
When we will forget hanging the mask
When we talk across the back fence
When we talk without being so tense
When we can kiss loved ones goodbye
When we can kiss them without a cry
When we stand together without a dare
When we come to Him in faithful prayer
Let me just say right off, I contend very seriously that any crisis involving the taking of human life is not to be taken lightly. We should all do our part in its prevention, especially this new Coronavirus pandemic. I trust you will like this little poem blog, "Doom and Gloom, A Christian Look"
Moving on, you may call me a modern-day hermit, if you like but I don’t watch news anymore. The gist of its content has become so secular, it almost seems as if the various media outlets are competing to see who can out-do all others. Are they trying to see who can out-fear the others with this too-convenient Coronavirus threat? (Jude 1:16, 18-19) Well, you be the judge.
By the way, have you noticed, unlike most idioms, this phrase can have the same dreadful meaning and effect if reversed? Kind of like it was generated straight from the evil one himself. (Ephesians 6:12)
Okay, I’m not that much of a recluse. I do have my favorite spiritual programs, along with my preferred Fifties sitcoms. I base my spiritual beliefs on the Bible. (Philippians 4:4,6-8)
I really don’t think one can blame this progressive arrogance of doom and gloom on any one demographic factor. I do believe, however, that an existing sector of the populace may be using this new world-wide pandemic of Coronavirus for personal or public gain.
From the very beginning of time, this old universe has had its fair share of crises one after another. Yet it seems more than ever before, this old world has become a secular, Godless entity. Are we headed straight towards destruction? The Scripture seems to be telling us so. (II Timothy 3:1-9,13) (II Timothy 4:3-4)
Back to the doom and gloom of it all, we were all made in the likeness of God. (Genesis 1:26-27) However, as a result of mankind’s Garden of Eden fall, (Genesis 3:1-7) all mankind is now born with inherited sin, and in need of a redeemer. (Romans 3:23) God supplied that redeemer in His Son, Jesus who died to pay for our sin. (John 3:16)
So, what about our doom and gloom attitude? Our Creator, God, does not intend for our attitude to be this way when faced with a crisis, a pandemic, or any hardship. We are not to live in fear. (II Timothy 1:7)
Now, with respect to whatever is bothering you, simply let go and let God have His way. A good free prescription is to read one chapter a day from the Bible's book of Proverbs, for a thirty-one-day monthly period.
As you read, keep a personal journal of how the particular chapter will or did help your circumstances. It will work wonders. I tried it and I liked it, as the saying goes.
What is the solution to this crises? Here it is.
" If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and bpray, and seek my cface, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."(2 Chronicles
Yes, the Bible is our God-given textbook. (II Timothy 3:16-17) Amen!
