Another Tragedy . . .

by Deborah Ann Belka

Another tragedy . . .
has rocked across our nation
another senseless crime
has gotten our undivided attention.

As a country we stand in shock,
at the horror in front of us
and some say we suffer
because in God we no longer trust.

I have seen throughout the years,
the falling away of the masses
when from the Ten Commandments
we stopped following their passages.

It is true ~ we asked God to leave,
our country a long time ago
and all of His blessings . . .
we were willing to forgo.

In our pride we took Him out,
of each courtroom and every school
and now we live without teaching
or practicing the golden rule.

Another tragedy . . .
why is our nation in shock?
Maybe it is time we look back
and take our lack of faith into stock.

2 Chronicles 7:14
King James Version

" If humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sin, and
will heal their lamy people, which are called by my
name, shall nd."
