Hurricane Coming
July 15, 2009


Hurricane Coming

Spiritual winds like a hurricane
Have entered this place
When we've forgotten His truth
and turned from His grace,
Rain crashing down
Winds ruin with upheaval
Are we asking for wrath
By doing what's evil?
Our walls of protection
We've taken them down
I can hear the wind blowing
It's a devilish sound,
Our fathers of old
Put protective walls in their place
Blessings of God
The Rock and His grace,
But our walls of protection
We've taken them down
I can hear the wind blowing
It's a devilish sound.

Vote For Rick's Poem 


Hurricane Coming says to me that America, as a nation has turned from God's grace. Individually, we, who are born again in Christ cannot turn and walk away from the God's saving grace. However, as a nation, we can and have turned from his protection grace, by turning from his truth, His Word.


At this time, America, on a whole, is rejecting the protection grace of the Lord that our nation needs to survive and to be safe.

I believe that we can get that protection back, if we, who are God's people, will humble ourselves and do as God calls us to do in scripture:

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." ...2nd Cron 7:14


This nation was founded on Christ. Let's keep our agreement with the Lord.

Rick Haling's poem is truly to the point and beautifully put. I thank him for sending it to me.

I hope that everyone will click on the link underneath his poem and cast a vote for it, on the site where it is posted.
