EULOGY FOR GOD

Oh, Lord! Lest one is asleep, the purge to kill you,yet again, is quite deep. Some, who read your word in the Bible, re-create it, with myths that are long and deep. Or, they in arrogance and fervent ignorance stomp, on your words as but fairy tales. They are turning the tables on you,  woking hard to make you a fable! As in days of Hitler, we who believe, are shot dead in Temples and churches! (Then, they blame guns!) We live in a society in great pain. Of course, bullets in this society reign! We are being attacked for any freedom of speech of you, and are always besmirched. We are beaten and called names by lost soul jerks. We open businesses but those who hate your children want all of them shut down. Because the businesses won't support the  killing of babies. They torture us wearing their popular~~ 'freedom of choice' crowns. Churches are objects of derision. You, God, they wrongly surmise is the source of any division! Poets here, who write of you, are mostly passed over as "boring." Your creations are adored ad infinitum~ They drool, however over their dog, Rover! The seas, the birds, the splendor in all the flowers. Their poetry glories! Of these they write and sing for endless hours. Of you? Bah, humbug! Our serenity, our hopes no longer lies in you. But in politics, poetry, news, movies, booze, sex-aplenty, self-adoration and calming drugs. Oh, Lord~ we are so lost! Have Mercy on us all, I beg! Panagiota

A wonderful poem stating the truth. I agree with all you said and the last line" Have Mercy on us all, I beg! says what we should be praying. God has let America come through a great trying time still in good condition and everyone should be out marching in the streets praising Him instead of looting and mocking Him!

Julia~ Bravo my friend. Gratitude is greatly lacking. Somr Americans do not have an ounce of gratitude. They want Free everything here. I sense a demonic force worse than the virus. You will be arrested in Ca on the beach! But if you steal thousands or burn down businesses you walk free. God is needed in people's hearts. Our children see this. They know what they woukd do to thieves. Arrest them.thans for sharing so candidly. Panagiota

Krish, I had forgotten this was a POTD a month ago. I am grateful you made it a FAV. I pray for a better world and a better me. After all, changes start within a person not a government. But humans still think they supercede the one who made them? Glad you are reading me. Wonderful. Thank you. Panagiota xx

Dear Panagiota, this is my favorite poem of yours! It succinctly tells the truth about society today. But we Christians will keep telling others about our mighty God and we know he will watch over us as we do. Hugs and Blessings, Susan

Dear Susan..what a lovely thing to say! I re-read it and never thought this would be a POTD. God has the USA in his hands right now. Evil trying to crush a believer! Hardly. He has a hedge of protection around him. And he believes in the right to life.The slaughter of Jews in New Jersey was sad. We go forward. People think "things" are destroying us. It's humans killing humans. Watch the world go nuts because finally a Conservative won last night. They are after Bibi, as well. Anything to destroy the USA as a Republic and to dessimate Israel love and blessings.Panagiota xxx

I am moved by the cry of your poem, Panagiota. Congratulatios! "The LORD is My Shepherd …4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.…"

Thank you for this truly moving response. You are a wise poet. Sometimes it's more than hard even to walk through the valley of life. Comfort is is short shrift from others. I am so glad to find kind poets here. Love, Panagiota

YHWH sent you a message as you were about to leave PS???? If you believe in HIM, keep sharing the truths you recognize. People with meek hearts here on PS need to read the truth even if don't want to hear it. I experienced the shock of a spiritual poem gaining approval, it is ...very encouraging. I join YHWH to say "keep on writing,this Christian would like to read more.

I will keep writing. I realize how secular the world is. Sometimes I read a poem like this and wonder who wrote it. I needed a rest from me and pushing myself too hard. I willbe writing less. Of the close to 900 poems I wrote are others besides this that have a message. Thank you for your encouragement and honesty....hugs, Panagiota

A well-written poem full of warnings to those that believe. I am a spiritualist, I worship nature and those that I truly love and who truly love me. What I believe is that my soul will come back in a new person when I die, too many deja vus during this life, like Ï have been here before."

I have experienced the déjà vus as well, Janet! I so appreciate honesty in all Poetry and replies. Impressing others frosts me or know it all answers or Replying in cliched tones. As someone special said, Even a simple, thank you is enough-)). I do know in advance already who will never respond to any of my Poems. That's find. I love the friends I have hear and am no rock star... With deep appreciation, Panagiotaxxx

Hi, Connie.God is not wanted here so it shocked me that this got a POTD! It's OK, God must laugh and love humans anyway. I always joke with my daughter. The only safe topics are butterflies, rain, the sea, snow, and sex ))) I am no PC buff. I don't attend the cathedral of poetic correctness.LOL Comment appreciated as are you, my friend! Panagiota
Date: 10/20/2019 1:05:00 AM
When I sound religious people laugh.i have learned that God has become a forgotten thought to many. I wouldn't be here without him Your words reaffirms my faith.thank you Panagiota

"the planet, universe, seas,mhumans, animals would not be here without Him" so...I am blessed to reaffirm your faih. Others on this site are quite inspiring. Please write more poems! Thank you! Panagiota. I have had much help to get to this point.

As long as Christians are still in the World!! We have Hope!! As stated in Ecc. 1:9 (NKJV) "That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun" So true. God is and will Forever be. MAN cannot change that. Keep praying!!! For change. I certainly am. Congratulations Panagiota, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

Brandy, thank you,sincerely for the comment and sharing your hope. All we can do is our best. No secular prize in any sector of life will get us into eternity.nor how popular we are, nor how much nor how little money. Excuse my late response. I fell asleep early yesterday. It takes a BIG person to honor a fellow poet. You are one! People like you, blow me away. Its funny. I know exactly in advance who will never respond to my getting a POTD, that's OK. The more we give, the more we get. Brandy, I don't type well...otherwise you'd see me responding more. Thamk you...Christians and Jews need to work together. Blessings..Panagiota

Reading your thoughtful and very good poem, you would think so. There once was a cover on Time Magazine "Is God Dead at 50?" (I think in 1966 online), and my boss at that time said "If God is dead, how does he keep answering my prayers?" And looking back over my life, He always has. You have truly caused many, many people to think. Congratulations!

Sunlite Warrior. You blessed my day. Causing people to think,,,I hope so. Others have taught me to think. The war is on....I heard something one of the Democrats say the other night and was mortified, I have been in both parties, but never saw the snuffing out of God this bad. In Ca, our GOV is a madman. Pray for our USA,please and tolerance and free speech not be silenced. Thanks for your visit,Panagiota xx

I believe it is just another cycle in the evolution of evil. Some will listen, others won't and many it seems don't care. Regardless of beliefs, it is our right to believe what we want and those who try to silence us are the ones who should be silenced. Wonderfully written my friend and congrats on POTD

Chris! The world snarls at God with teeth showing and a growl, as one from a rapid dog!" IT IS MY RIGHT TO BELIEVE WHAT I WANT." God did give us free will, granted. To choose Him or mammon. The sadness, the drugs, the guns,we think are the source of evil? Come From men or women or young people who have zero time for God. Yes, the silencing is Bigtime in California. Evil Is accelerating.When the world ends, the evil have an eternity in a horrid place. Thank you.
