Starfish

When life gets tough,
Do we give up?
So easy that would be.
We make a choice,
despair, Rejoice,
even in adversity.

Perhaps you lost a loved one,
No work, no Hope, no home.
Thinking, where is God in this?
So weary, saints have grown.

and Holidays,
The hardest time,
for those who stand alone.
Satan does his very best,
To crush God's very Own.

Just like the Starfish story,
So many on the shore.
What is the point , of helping one,
When every day brings more.

Remember one small baby,
No room at the Inn.
Remember how the world was then,
and what we did to Him.

Born to die in anguish,
Prophecy fulfilled.
One gentle man, against the world.
Living out God’s Will.

Ask the one small starfish,
The one who learned to swim.
What would have happened to that soul?
Without the Grace of Him.

Draw nigh, and read the ‘Living Word.’
Pray hard, and count the Stars.
Look around , and Thank The Lord,
For bringing us thus far.

We cannot change the flow of tide.
We cannot change the Season.
All He said will come to pass.
One day, to know the reason.

When life gets tough,
Do we give up?
So easy that would be.
We make a choice,
despair, Rejoice,
even in adversity.

The Starfish Story:

Once there was an old man, who went down to the seashore every morning.
The tide would wash up hundreds of starfish, who lay there dying on the sand.
Each day, whatever the weather, and however weary the old man was, he would go down to the beach and throw the starfish back into the ocean.

One day a young boy , who had witnessed his devotion , came up and asked him, “ Sir, why do you do this, don’t you know there will be hundreds more tomorrow?”
The old man looked up, with tearful eyes, “of course I know, that’s why I come.”
“but Sir, isn’t that all a little pointless?”, laughed the boy, thinking the old man was a fool.

The old man looked out at the Sea, and up to the Heavens, then answered.
“ Ask the ones who Live.”
