TITLE: Bummed or What?

Do you feel bummed or blessed?

Your birthday plans are cancelled: the party, friends and cake.
Instead, family crisis came with relationships at stake.

Are you bummed?

But because it IS your big day, many friends will know,
So many folk will pray for you no matter where you go.

You are blessed!

You are confronted with a job and the order is really tall
Because it lies outside your gifts, you donít feel adequate at all.

Are you bummed?

But hereís a chance to learn to walk more closely with the Lord,
Trusting Him to enable you as He promised in His Word.

You are blessed!

Life is not playing out the way that you were told.
In spite of careful foresight, it spins out of control!

Are you bummed?

But this is really just a setting, a background to display
That Godís control is truly real no matter what they say!

You are blessed!

What seems to be a bummer, in Godís topsy-turvy economy,
Is just a blessing misperceived, if weíll take the time to see.

This is outstanding. You grabbed my attention right away. The words flowed easily off the screen. You handled the topic in a fun and fresh way while really reminding people to look at life in a different way. I loved this and can only say Wow!

Absolutely wonderful! I enjoyed the nuance of the question (Are you bummed?) with the answer (You are blessed). This was concise and to the point yet filled with so much meaning. Awesome job!
