’s Test Essay, Research Paper

* * The Lord’s Test

* * I woke up this morning

* * and knew that today,

* * The sun would not be shining

* * and the clouds would be gray.

* *

* * As I stepped outside,

* * rain fell upon my head.

* * My car wouldn’t start

* * so I walked to school instead.

* *

* * I forgot all of my assignments

* * I failed all of my tests.

* * I dropped my head in disgust

* * and asked the Lord for

* * one request.

* *

* * “Lord, why is it that

* * things won’t go my way?”

* * He gently replied,

* * “Dear child it is because

* * you didn’t thank me yesterday.

* *

* * I woke you up and enabled

* * you to see the sun again.

* * I gave you shelter,

* * protected your family, and even let

* * you make a new friend.

* *

* * I blessed you far

* * greater than I ever had before.

* * But you were too busy

* * to thank me once more.

* *

* * You didn’t feel sick

* * because I maintained your health.

* * You had money in your pocket

* * because I maintained your wealth.

* *

* * You had shoes on you feet

* * and clothes to wear, too.

* * You had plenty of food to eat,

* * and what did you do?

* *

* * You ignored me and went

* * about your tasks.

* * But when you wanted something

* * you never hesitated to ask.

* *

* * I was there when you needed me

* * and that wasn’t too long ago.

* * But when things started going your way,

* * it was me you did not know.

* *

* * As if that weren’t enough,

* * I provided your favorite luxuries.

* * This was something I didn’t have

* * to do-they weren’t even necessities.

* *

* * And when it was time to get on your

* * knees and show your gratitude,

* * You decided that after such a

* * fulfilling day, you weren’t in the mood.

* *

* * So I decided to

* * give you just a little test.

* * To show you how it would feel

* * to stop being blessed.”

* *

* * I began to realize what

* * the Lord was saying.

* * And when I got home, I fell

* * to my knees and started praying.

* *

* * He said, “My child, you have

* * learned and you know I do forgive.

* * But remember to remember this day

* * as long as you shall live.

* *

* * I love filling your life with joy,

* * and your pain I’ll alleviate it.

* * But just a simple thank you

* * would show how much you

* * appreciate it.”

* *

* * Pass this on to everyone

* * you pray the Lord will bless.

* * There are no catches or

* * rules just this simple test.

* *

* * How many people to send

* * it to is all in your hands.

* * *
