The Lord's Test

The Lord's Test

I woke up this morning
and knew that today,
The sun would not be shining
and the clouds would be gray.
As I stepped outside,
rain fell upon my head.
My car wouldn't start so
I walked to school instead.

I forgot all of my assignments
I failed all of my tests.
I dropped my head in disgust and
asked the Lord for one request.
"Lord, why is it that things
won't go my way?"

He gently replied,
"Dear child it is because
you didn't thank me yesterday.
I woke you up and enabled
you to see the sun again.
I gave you shelter,
protected your family,
and even let you make a newFriend.
I blessed you far greater
than I ever had before.

But you were too busy
to thank me once more.
You didn't feel sick because
I maintained your health.
You had money in your pocket
because I maintained your wealth.
You had shoes on you feet
and clothes to wear, too.

You had plenty of food
to eat and what did you do?
You ignored me and
went about your tasks.
But when you wanted something
you never hesitated to ask.
I was there when you needed me
and that wasn't too long ago.

But when things started going your way,
it was me you did not know.
As if that weren't enough,
I provided your favorite luxuries.
This was something I didn't have to do
they weren't even necessities.
And when it was time to get on
your knees and show your gratitude,

You decided that after
such a fulfilling day,
you weren't in the mood.
So I decided to give
you just a little test.
To show you how it would
feel to stop being blessed.
I began to realize
what the Lord was saying..

He said,
"My child, you have learned
and you know I do forgive.
But remember to remember
this day as long as you shall live.
I love filling your life with joy,
and your pain I'll alleviate it.
But just a simple thank you
would show how much you appreciate it."
