How is it? How Can it Be? By Brenda Drake

Amidst our Christmas celebrations there is certain sadness; all is not alright in our world. In fact, it seems things are just upside down.  I have so many questions.  How is it?  How can this be? Why? What can we do? Who can help us?  When?  Even in my asking I truly know the answer. Our help comes from the Lord.  

How is it?  How Can It Be?

How can it be that there are homeless in our streets?
And so many hopeless and helpless; fill with defeat?
How is it possible to say this is alright?
When our own people are neglected and abused in plain sight?
How can it be we would turn our own Nation aside,
To give other Nations a free ride?
Is now our whole perspective changed and upside down?
Are the weak and the poor cast aside the new way found?
Why is it what God says is wrong is now said is right?
Why is darkness and evil practices done now in plain sight?
Who is it that can answer my questions this day?
How is it things have so changed?  I pray,
Wake us up, open our eyes to see and know,
What needs to be done to things change. Lord Jesus, take control.
Soften our hearts and unstop our ears to the truth hear.
Help us Lord, to make evil ways disappear.

2 Chronicles 3:14
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.

Zephaniah 3:17-18
The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;
he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee,
to whom the reproach of it was a burden.
