Divine Shortcut

17 May

“God is not a cosmic bellboy for whom we can press a button to get things done.”  ~Harry Emerson Fosdick

Divine Shortcut

“God will this” and “God will that”
I hear many believers chat
“God will handle everything”
They promise, praise, rejoice and sing

But then reality steps in
And stress and struggle do begin
“Don’t worry, leave it up to God!”
This way of thinking is quite flawed

To pass the buck and sit and wait
And let God deal with all the hate
With challenges that do arise
With grief whenever someone dies

The God-believing Warrior
Does not pass bucks, does not defer
They walk up to and face head on
What most wish God would make be gone

They understand that God is not
A shortcut through dismay and fraught
God gave you all that you need
To pray for anymore is greed

It’s lacking faith within one’s own
Courage and strength, it’s blindness shown
To one’s innate ability
To be of fear and sorrow free

The Warrior’s hands never clasp
And beg God to their troubles grasp
To Warriors, that’s laziness
When God designed us, He did bless

With everything it takes to deal
We’re not supposed to wait and kneel
So get up and do battle now
Sever your stress, through hardships plow

And be assured that God does see
You are what He made you to be
In His image you stand alone
And conquer everything that’s thrown

No shortcuts needed, no reprieve
For Warriors who still believe
The long and hard way is divine
To walk it takes not prayers, just spine

    We often turn to the Divine when we are in trouble and in need of help Miro. Often forgetting to be thankful and be in gratitude for what we already have within our lives and saying Thank you for what we have… We too often blame the Divine Creator for all that befalls us.. Saying ‘Why Me’ when in fact the responsibility lies firmly at our own door, within our own creative thoughts. .. Another well written and thought provoking poem Miro.. Love your new header too..
    Forgive me not calling around recently, but I have been reading your post via my phone mostly.. You are one of the Best Champions of Light I know Miro, and you do it most eloquently within your poetic writings.. Taking subjects many would not attempt to create in Rhyme let alone Reason!.. My Hat goes off to you, and all the very best with the other Book already in progress.. Love and Light my friend ~Sue

    THANK YOU, Miro! I couldn’t have found better words to express how I feel about those believers.
    ““Don’t worry, leave it up to God!”
    This way of thinking is quite flawed
    To pass the buck and sit and wait
    And let God deal with all the hate”
    Brilliant poem. 😉
    I’m so sleepy that I misread the title as “Divine SCHRUTE”. I had to share this!!! lol

    We are to put on the whole armour of God and step out BESIDE Him to slay the hate dragons of this world.

    Wonderful, Miro, and powerful ending, “To walk it takes not prayers, just spine.”
