When Nature Takes Over

When Nature Takes Over*

When Nature takes over
there is not much that we can do
but to seek cover and pray,  
that our life may be spared
that we continue to breathe Life.

Despite our preparation
we cannot avoid the devastation,
the destruction of properties 
and loss of innocent lives 
when Nature takes over... 

We become helpless
we become powerless
so we seek and pray to our God 
to protect and keep us safe from harm
when Nature rules and takes over.

When Nature takes over
our faith comes into play
we rest our case to our Creator
we hope and pray that we live
and if we die, we belong to His Kingdom.
