LIFE IS GOOD!
— a POEM by Abraham Israel
Life is good even when we are not,
Is it because we deserve it?
No, not at all but rather b'cos God is good all the time,
He makes the sun shine on the good and the evil alike.
Life is good because God is good and awesome,
Is He not worthy to receive honor?
Yes, by all means but fallen humans in sin are never grateful,
To give back the Glory He deserves, in spite God rains blessing.
Life is good even when evil seems to prevail,
Does God seems distant and silent in justice?
No, His day of wrath and judgment is one day nearer,
To shake the lethargy of the wicked and comfort the comfortless.
Life is not an accident waiting to happen,
It is not the finger print of God, blooming like a flower?
Yes, life in all its complexities and beauty of existence,
By no means a small thing except when we have forgotten Him.
Life is good even when people are not,
Have we learned to look to Jesus Christ alone?
Yes He alone can keep us rejoicing by the hope to come,
When faith which He has started makes us perfect to love.
Life is good when Christ's goodness supersedes,
Have everything on earth and heaven made to fade?
No, not by our effort of any kind but through His gift alone,
A heavenly life and new nature received and lived to full in love.
Life is good even when life seems hard,
Just to realize that, we have chosen our thought instead of His?
Yes, but life is not hard but a school of God to bless our thought,
To makes us stand on the truth in spite of the fact that fades out.
Life is good because Christ is all in all,
Do you not realize, it is not just life but life eternal?
No amount of fear can bring death when life consumes us,
To choose His Son and resist sin to love Him who died for us.
Life is good and meaningful as we in Christ and He in us,
Has not He promised never to leave nor forsake?
In eternal arms He embraced us and overcame death tasting it,
For us who were lost but now found by God in Him eternally!
PRAISE AND GLORY BE TO GOD AND OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO IS ALWAYS GOOD TO US NO MATTER WHAT MAY HAPPEN, ENJOY YOUR LIFE IN HIM FREELY AND ABUNDANTLY!
Abraham Israel I
