It was Meant to Be (a Poem)

While watching television last night a character said, “It was meant to be.” The statement is fairly close to Leslie Weatherhead’s “Ultimate will of God.” But, there is a great deal of range between “It was meant to be” and the “Ultimate Will of God.”

As I contemplated the statement, “It was meant to be,” the following acrostic poem emerged.

Idle minds fail to think things through
Tragically blaming God, is easy to do.

We think it’s only impact is on us
And soon we’re riding the blame bus
Saying God refused us again, so thus:

Moist eyes from tears of heartache so,
Every word brings hate we must stow
A burden to release for love to grow.
Neglect love then hatred will show
To see love is to see God and know

This God is power, this God is might
Once again let God’s love be my sight

Believe God would never fail to love thee
Else we all could say it was meant to be.

Be blessed.

Seeking the Genuine,
