Why Does Everything Go Wrong?Feb. 18, 2015
Why does she smile and gloat,
When things always go her way?
It wouldn’t be so bad,
If it didn’t happen everyday.
Why do her clothes look so pretty
(when mine always look so drab.)
And why does she always smile?
(When I look and act like a crab)
Why does the sun always shine,
In her driveway,-not very far?
Her car is shiny and huge,
(While mine is such a small car?)
Why does her hair stay in place?
(And mine, fly around everywhere?)
Yes, I will tell you vehemently,
Life is truly not at all fair!
But as I open God’s Word and read,
I’m ashamed beyond compare.
When I read all He suffered for me,
And,” take your burdens to Him in prayer.”
Suddenly, all of these things didn’t matter,
I’m contented with my lot,
So, as I sing and complete my work,
I’m so happy for what I’ve got.
So, when envy strikes your life,
Go to your Savior in prayer.
Read His Words, and claim His promises.
My God will meet you there.
