A Letter to God


I wrote a letter to God and I had to ask why,
He allowed so much suffering and little people had to die?
One’s that had never caused trouble or done anybody harm,
Taken before they experienced life, plucked from their mothers arms.

He said answer me this, why did my son have to suffer and die?
Nailed to that cross I couldn’t even watch, all I could do was turn my head and cry!
What trouble did He cause, what harm did He do?
And all for what, He did it for you.

He said you couldn’t comprehend all the things that daily take place,
And all I ask is your trust till we meet face to face.
He said all things have a reason and someday you will know,
But you must trust in my word so your faith will blossom and grow.

I said Lord please forgive me if I sounded out of line,
It seems like all we ever do is complain, ask for mercy, or whine.
I know that you are busy so I guess I will close,
Thank You for listening and my love I enclose.

    I think it's okay to ask why sometimes. In with our wee little minds and realites its hard to reaize the ways of God. After all we are but dirt. Like your poem its good sometimes to take a step back and try to see the whole picture once again. It's not all about us.

    Hi Ronald I like this letter.Jesus understands all our pains and hurts. Even though we go through so many difficulties we can be assured He is going through them with us. Like you said "There is a reason for all things" God bless Leon

    Fate helps those who help themselves. Aint no help in pity or letters.
