Like most people in the world, 2020 finds me in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. Inspired by the Word of God and how God has something to say about every situation, I began to write seventy-five poems. It was February when the Holy Spirit prompted me to write God’s Word in poetry, and needless to say, 2020 did not find me with nothing to do while in the house, wanting to follow the rules.I have been saved, born again, for thirty-two years. I am a native-born Philadelphian and attend the Bethany Missionary Baptist Church. I love serving the Lord and serving people (i.e. Helping Hand Rescue Mission, women in prison, ushering, and more). My life verse is Matthew 5:16: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”While reading the first five verses in Joel 1, Wanda began to write.Nothing like This Has Ever Happened BeforeGod gave a message to the prophet to say “listen,” everyoneSee what’s happening all around while you are still having funIt came upon the land quickly with a mighty and destructive forceTell your children, everyone, everywhere has been thrown off courseNot in our time or your parent’s time have we ever seen this beforeWe ask when will it end, how long can it go on each day more and moreEveryone, wake up including those who partied too hard and went to sleepCry out and mourn, like it or not, you’re on the wagon, now it is time to weepThe virus will attack you no matter who you are, red, brown, black, or whiteTake heed and realize the seriousness of the situation, we can’t win this fightAll are closed, restaurants, gyms, malls, nail salons, barber shops, no reliefAnd with virtual doctor’s appointments, we pray nothing happens to our teethWe must seek to sense God’s purpose for what is happening in the world todayOnly the Holy Spirit can help us to know what we should do before it all slips away
