My Dear Friend…
What do you do when the unexpected happens?
Where do you go?
Who do you run to?
When suddenly on your big day, life hands you a cold shoulder.
And suddenly you find yourself being grilled;
Like they do the southern fries.
And suddenly life punches you from a blind side.
When suddenly a repossession order is handed to you;
And suddenly your contract of employment is terminated.
When suddenly the doctor’s report isn’t what you’ve expected;
And suddenly the sweet lifelong friendship turns sour.
Some put their trust in the legal document they have with an insurance company;
Because they’ve managed to sign up for a life insurance.
Some think their well-paid job is worth relying on;
Because they see a lot of zeros following the numbers on their paychecks.
If only you know that the race is not to the swift;
If only you know that the battle is not to the strong.
If only you know that bread is not to the wise;
If only you know that time and chance happen to us all!
My dear, let me be very frank with you…
There’s a GOD somewhere!
He rules in the affairs of humans;
He directs the course of nature.
And He cares about You!
