What Kind Of A Deal Is That?

Christian Author Writer I have a suggestion for you God. You and your fallen angel are at odds with one another and as far as I am concerned that's your problem. I don't want to be caught in the middle of it. Every time I turn around he is trying to get me to do one thing and you want me to do something else. Well, I think you two ought to just duke ‘em out and leave me alone. It’s hard enough for me just to make it from one day to the next. And then I die.

What kind of a deal is that?

I get sick and I don't get healed. Some joker comes along and cheats me out of all my money and I can't make it up because I spent a lifetime trying to be able to take care of myself. When I am old, some goof-ball preacher is trying to get me to give him my hard earned money, so he can live in a mansion and maintain his jet airplane and drive around in his BMW. And I am hardly able to keep food on the table and buy shoes and clothes for my family.

What kind of a deal is that?

I went to church and folks looked down on me ‘cause I didn't have the kind of clothes they did, had to walk to church because my old car was broke down, my bible is old and worn, and is a KJV instead of the latest translation, I heard ‘em whispering, “That fellow must not be spiritual. You can tell because God hasn't blessed him.”

What kind of a deal is that?

I hear ‘em preaching that if I would only give more, that I would surely prosper
and be able to wear fine suits, drive nice cars and live in a big fine home. And just think, if I could send my rent money, I probably could buy my wonderful, faithful wife of 40 years, some diamond rings and such.

What kind of a deal is that?

I was sick and had a fever, my wife was sick and my babies was sick, but I knew I had to do the plowing for the garden. I hitched up my mule and was in the middles and an old friend came along and said, “Cheer up neighbor, things could be worse.” So I cheered up and sure enough things got worse.

What kind of a deal is that?

Well I reckon your mad at me Lord. I just had to get these things off my chest.
Sorry for being such a whiner, but I sure do appreciate you listening to me.

What's that you say? You say you’re not mad at me?

That's what I like about you, Lord, you sure are a good listener. Wouldn't want them folks down at the church or my family to hear me talking like that.

Come to think about it, you are the best friend a feller could have. You sure have stuck by me. You’ve been closer to me than a brother and that comforter you sent to me, sure has been a help to me. And that bible you had them folks write for me, Man O Man, has been a life saver for me. I think I am through for this time, complaining and all.

Come to think about it, there is a thing or two I want to call to your memory.

Remember that time I took my family to see that Lion they had on display and somehow or another that big rascal grabbed hold of Bubba and proceeded to eat him, and how you gave me the strength to fight him off and keep my son from harm?

Remember that time my friend had a fighting rooster and it jumped on my little girl and stuck her in the main artery of her neck and I was able to stop the bleeding and save her life?

Remember that time they told my wife, Mary Francis, she was going to need to have her breast removed because of cancer and you stepped in and fixed her up?

Remember that time my heart didn't want to work anymore and I had that stroke? They said I wouldn't live for more than a couple of days. Well just look at me now, I'm already back to my plowing.

Come to think about it, you said you would never leave me nor forsake me and one of them fellers in the bible said that he never seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread.

Yes Sir, come to think about it, I sure am glad that you took a liking to me Lord.

I reckon the best way to say it is, You truly are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Thank you for being my friend. I Love you my Lord.

What kind of a deal is that?
