Bitter Betty By Brenda Drake



            The Lord has a sense of humor.  He is loving and kind.  He will always show us His willingness to help us improve in our walk with Him.  Although this poem shows a wrong attitude in a laughable descriptive way; it is not a funny thing to remain in such sad condition.

Bitter Betty

Sour, bitter Betty; what a sight to see.
She is like a prune crossed with a lemon; not a nice place to be.
She’s not a kind or happy soul.
She sees through eyes darkened with every kind of woe.
Nothing is good.  Nothing to her tastes sweet.
Gold is not really gold – not even on heaven’s streets.
She puckers her face in a grimace that causes even her laugh,
To sound-like a sneer returning back.
Life has become a burden for Bitter Betty to endure.
To her weakened, unforgiving condition nothing is seen pure.
You perhaps know her or her brother. Although, they are hard to embrace,
They can be helped by prayer, to their bitterness erase.
Jesus takes the bitter and makes better than before;
If they repent and ask for help from the Lord.
Come, if you too have caught it- I will take all your bitterness away.
So you can have a joyful step and your mouth can sing songs of praise.

Ephesians 4:31-32
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgivingone another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
