Stand Fast in the Liberty
 
Dearly beloved of God, happy Independence Day. I thank God for that liberty, but the children of God have even greater liberty than the people of this nation are celebrating today.

Dearly Beloved 07/02/24 God's Bank Ain't Busted Yet

God's Bank Ain't Busted Yet
 
Alice P. Moss wrote this poem in 1931 following the Stock Market Crash of 1929, and the Great Depression that followed.
 
These were desperate times indeed. Most American citizens have never experienced anything comparable to these times. Listen to her poem.
 
The bank had closed; my earthly store had vanished from my hand;
I felt that there was no sadder one than I in all the land.
My washerwoman, too, had lost her little mite with mine,
And she was singing as she hung the clothes upon the line.
“How can you be so gay?” I asked, “Your loss don’t you regret?”
“Yes, ma’am, but what’s the use to fret?
God’s bank ain’t busted yet?”
 
I felt my burden lighter grow; her faith I seemed to share;
In prayer I went to God’s great throne and laid my troubles there.
The sun burst from behind the clouds, in golden splendor set;
I thank God for her simple words: “God’s bank ain’t busted yet?”
