The Epidemic

The Epidemic
                               2 Chronicals 7:14  *
The greatest impact of the century
Unlike any seen before
Referred to, as a silent enemy
It rapidly spread from shore to shore

At first, some appeared nonchalant
To the magnitude it did present
They chose to ignore, - - facts
And deem it just another event

Issues involved more than "things"
It was about death and life
Drastic measures were exercised
Most everyone felt the strife

Everyday activities were curtailed
Authorities implemented control
All but basic essentials
Were temporarily put on hold

The epidemic touched rich and poor
A virus does not choose it's prey
The medical world frantically sought
For a way to make it go away

Did it ever occur that mankind
Has drifted away from God
In Eden, when they disobeyed
They were met with a chastening rod

A promise in God's Word declared  *
A solution for people in that day
Perhaps this, - - we should consider
Lest we become a castaway
