They say, I'm hopeless

THEY say... I'm hopeless!
THEY say ...
"That everything happens for a good reason" ...
Maybe I'm a dope,
but what if that ONLY reason seems to be to kill
my ONLY hope?
"That hope is stronger
than any doubt and fear"...
but is it really stronger
than a good stout refreshing beer?
"That when God closes a door, he opens up a window" ...
but what if MY doors and windows feel about as real
as the Hollywood set of "Let's make a deal"?
"That good things happen
to those who patiently wait" ...
but why do even better things happen to those who won't,
and hastily or greedily and selfishly DON'T?
"That we entertain angels, totally unaware" ...
Oh Great, so NOW am I ALSO told, that there are hypnotically bored, CELESTIAL beings
stumbling around out there?
"That what goes around comes around" ...
Yeah that's God's cosmic plan. But it seems to mainly pertain to loose lips and their ships.
Or to the end result of man's sinful hands
"That ignorance is bliss" ...
well...THAT'S so painfully, and woefully
Bloody obvious !
"That we don't hold on to God,
but God holds on to us" ....
Lord I pray,
that YOU'RE NOT holding
my rebellious, rank soul at arm's length
by the scruff of my stiff neck;
Your hand tightly pinching Your nose, and Your brow so tightly furled,
walking me over to the
heap pile known to YOUR saints
as "the sinful world"!
Lord, please Please! Don't drop me back in!
Well I say...
"Who are THEY
to say such things?
Thanks alot HEY!
THAT'S what 'I' say!"
This ALL begs
THE GREATEST question...
This is a piece that
I wrote during a time of a great feeling of hopelessness and bitterness...
But praise the Loving Lord that no matter when we find ourselves lost in vileness, bitterness and despair...
God remains always in the SAME place.
He NEVER moves from us... but it is us who through our own pride and sin move away from Him.
God who began a good work in us IS in fact working lovingly on us, so that we can TOTALLY trust in Him AND depend on Him. There is NOTHING that the Lord desires more from us than this. No matter how impatient, vile or rebellious we sometimes get.
