No Joy Found in “The Valley of Decision”

Ice-cold rain drops; pounding measure;

Pelt leaves of gold; bring them down!

Swirling streams of tattered treasure;

Emeralds in gold, muddied and brown;

Dark season’s beginning now is sure!

Men of violent force seeking renown;

Dedicated to death; a religion impure;

Persecution pound! Bring world down!

Cord-drawn destruction; finality sure;

Truth in Love muddied and brown;

Hate and Lies flaming evil treasure!

War begets war begets war… crown

Death as King; all to die by measure!

Woe to those who bring it all down!

Never to win the earth they treasure!

Ownership denied to men of renown;

The meek inherit the earth’s measure!

“let God be true and every man a liar”

“In the mouth it tastes sweet as honey

But it makes the stomach bitter” FIRE!

Prepared for all obstinate and phony;

On the Day that answers are required!

No avoiding, “The Valley of Decision!”

Judgment Day for all is surely, coming.

 

Joel 3: 14-16 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the Day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The Sun and moon will be darkened, and the stars no longer shine. The LORD will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the heavens will tremble. But the LORD will be a refuge for His people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.

    1. The blessing of many long hours at home with poor health, just Jesus and me, and my Bible. When we read those Words long enough, all of our thoughts and talents revolve around them. Everything serves God’s purpose and thanks to Jesus, I’m on the right side of that. I’m glad my very somber poem blessed you and I take that as an indicator of your being on the Lord’s side. These same words can make others turn livid.
