Upon the Burning of our House is a poem about a woman who goes to sleep without a worry in the world to wake up to the sound of thundering noise and piteous shrieks of dreadful voices She immediately turned to God and let out a cry from her heart and asked him to strengthen her in her distress She doesnt pray to God to save her from the fire She prays to Him for strength to withstand the fire This is a selfish prayer that shows how she sees God as a safety blanket and not as the miracle worker he really is She walks around the burned remains of her house All she focuses on is all her stuff she lost in the fire It seems that all she cares about was her possessions She then realizes that she is grieving for all the wrong reasons She feels bad and guilty about it She should be counting her lucky stars that her family is alright Instead she is mourning the loss of materialistic goods She then thanks God for having taken all her stuff away She knows that God gives everything and He can also take everything because everything in the world is His God is what she should care about because He is more important than anything she lost in the fire Well her bible may have cost her a pretty penny She can live without her stuff but she now knows that she cannot live without God in her life She knows that she is not going to find her treasure on earth shes going to find her real treasure in heaven
