Sorting Out Our Sorrows

There are times when life is shrouded with sorrow
Grief so strong and active it lessens our joy it shrinks
All pleasant things are reduced and touches tomorrow 
Helplessness holds us tight affecting how we think
Cannot feel the warmth of happiness none to borrow

The entire world is polluted with evil virus COVID-19 
Blaming China for it does not destroy or make it clean
People are afflicted – member of our families are crying
Vital bodily organs are ceasing to function this is seen
Hospitals beds are filling thousands of X-rays denying

Scans in the hospital MRI tunnel pinpoints problems
Technology is fast and useful science in the ascendancy 
However there are thousands who have other options 
Their personal prayer is a power of central dependency 
Gospel faith is a saving healing power many do adopt

Truth of our Lord Jesus Christ is our sure firm foundation 
Truth from the Saviour is as important as scientific facts
History shouts out the veracity of young earth creation 
Many Scientists today deny Biblical truth – seen in acts
Of denial and statements scoffing at our single adoration 

The National Health Service is admired across the globe
Many families have reason to thank the Lord for its care
Lives have and will be saved by staff to the evil microbe
Believing prayer is the language of heaven and puts sorrow 
On to Jesus who has carried our sorrows and defeated death

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53 :4.
