Test of Faith – A Poem by Jeremy Stevens
There are no chips on the table.
The wheel spins nonetheless.
The name of the game is roulette,
and it’s God’s turn to bet.
Read about Job and find out that
God thinks we’re just a game of chance.
Except He gambles with our lives
like we gamble with cash.
It’s one thing to read about it;
the danger isn’t close.
But imagine what it’s like when
you become the new Job.
When God gambles your loved one’s life,
and you lose without sense,
the reckless nature of the bet
destroys those who are left.
