A GOD SLAP

Pondering in a lull,
seeking hope,
suddenly a God slap,
no awareness to cope.

Trembling and humble,
my composure gathered,
a quick God slap
can leave me shattered.

Guilty and shamed,
neglecting to pray,
seeking an answer,
God’s slap tells me, "Obey!"

I thank God Almighty,
never doubting His presence,
blessings bestowed
thru’ His hand of patience.

So many holes dug,
pictures clearly painted,
roads taken by mistake,
leave me worn and tainted.

O’ yes indeed,
a good God slap
woke me up fast ...
No more will I lapse.

THANKS DEAR EVA, FOR THE COMMENT. BOY I'VE RECIEVED A FEW OF THESE GOD SLAPS FOR SURE. YOU KNOW THE KIND WHERE YOU RUN INTO WALL, DOOR, MISS A STEP. AND FOR NO RESON OF YOUR OWN YOU JUST FALL DOWN. AND YOU ASK YOURSELF, I DIDN'T DO THAT. WELL, THAT IS A GOD SLAP, YOU REALIZE THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL AND NOW HE HAS GIVEN YOU A WAKE UP AWARENESS CALL. GOD BLESS YOU.
LOVE BRENDA

There is no better way to pay attention to what you should be doing and not doing!

Great poem Brenda!!!! If I'm not paying attention and doing what He wants me to do, He does things to get my attention! (i.e., a God slap, little obstacles hindering my progression, etc.) Makes me stop and ask myself, "What in the world is going on?" Then the realization comes ~ need to listen and pay attention! Hee-hee! :-) Love this! :-) Hugs ~ Chee :-)

KAREN, YOU'RE SO RIGHT, WHEN WE DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT GOD GAVE US TO USE AS A RED FLAG INSIDE OUR GUT, WE MISSED THE BOAT. WE CAN'T FOOL GOD. A GOD SLAP WE RECIEVE. :D LOVE BRENDA

B.J. GLAD YOU LIKED MY POEM AND SEE MERIT IN THE GOD SLAP TITLE. I THINK WE ALL FALL ASLEEP FROM TIME TO TIME, IT'S A NORMAL THING WITH HUMANS TO SLIDE A BIT. SO A GOOD OLD GOD SLAP SURE BRINGS US TO ATTENTION. GOD BLESS YOU B.J. LOVE BRENDA
