SPIRITUAL GAIN

by Jewli
(Friendship ,N.Y.)

A LITTLE OVER A WEEK AGO,I WAS SPEAKING TO THE LORD.
I TOLD HIM I WAS LONELY,AND COMPLAINED
THAT I WAS BORED.
INSTEAD OF BEING THANKFUL FOR ALL THAT I'D
BEEN GIVEN...
I WHINED I WANTED MORE OUT OF THIS LIFE THAN
I'D BEEN LIVIN.
EVERY TIME TO ME...WHEN IT SEEMED THAT I WAS GAINING,
I'D DO SOMETHING STUPID...INSTEAD OF JUST REFRAINING.
ON A DAY WHEN FROM SIN I DID NOT REFRAIN,
THE LORD GENTLY LED ME TO WHAT'S NOW CALLED
"SPIRITUAL GAIN".
HE HAD NOT LIKED MY ACTIONS...
YET HE LOVED ME JUST THE SAME.
THEN HE SAID"YOU ARE FORGIVEN."..
AS HE SOFTLY SPOKE MY NAME.
THEN I SMILED FROM WITH-IN AS I REALIZED...
HIS GIFT TO ME...
WAS "SPIRITUAL GAIN"
