Corona Virus

Monday, April 06, 2020

This poem I wrote to encourage others that there is one who knows all and is more powerful than a virus. Put yourselves in His hands.


Dear Coronavirus
Hearing about you tires us
Weary and burdened
Tired and hurting

You turned our world up[side down
Turned smiles into frowns
Instead of apathetic
We are now frenetic

Slowed our hectic lives
Caused us more strife
More fear and worry
No longer in a hurry

Now we have time to think
You brought us to the brink
Made us feel helpless
Stressed and hopeless

Wound up and tense
Nothing makes sense
Once we were carefree
Content and happy

Now it's all changed
Our lives rearranged
Uncertain and afraid
Our lives in disarray

Whole towns shut down
No answers to be found
Stores and schools closed
Fear and anxiety grows
People hoarding food
The whole world is skewed

Restaurants no longer open
Yet people keep hoping
That there will be an end
And the economy will mend

Yet above all the ruckus
Our hearts are focused
On the One who brings peace
Who causes strife to cease

He calmed the angry seas
Caused the blind to see
Turned stones to bread
Knows the hairs of our head

God is not amazed
He is not fazed
For He is in control
The lover of our souls

Knows what's in our hearts
From the very start
He knew everything
There's not anything

God does not understand
Out times are in His hand
He is loyal and true
There's nothing He can't do

Coronavirus you cannot succeed
When God is in the lead
We will over come
By the power of the Son.
