Divided We Stand by Brenda Drake

            This poem was written in 2011 ten years after 9/11 can you see how much more this great country has divided itself.  What should unite us has divided us:  One nation under God. We are free to decide on whether or not to obey God’s Word or to do things our own way. In our decision there are rewards and consequences.  Our country is walking on a very thin line. 

2 Chronicles 7:14
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.

Divided We Stand

Divided we stand …no longer United as before;
One shuts up tight and one tries to open up the door.
One Nation under a God it no longer trusts,
When will the American people say enough is enough?
One is for tax cuts,
One side says taxes must be raised up;
Two different opinions that ring loud in the ear,
But neither side plainly speaks, so the message remains unclear.
Churches in the same villages will not agree;
They are divided….but are in the same body.
Divided we stand…one for and one against:
Still more divided – some attempt to walk the fence.
Households are in a struggle in the trying times,
If divisions are allowed the enemy will it also undermine
How can light dwell with darkness?
How is there progress in the land?
Either you join together in agreement and do as God commands,
Or there will be a great falling away;
United no more….Divided to stay!

1Timothy 2:1-5
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
