What is it that we want in our life?
We say we want God’s blessing and yet…
We never pray, we only follow strife.
We daydream of what we can get
And what we will do with it.
We worry, pine, and fret
We imagine how our life could be
With things we would like to have
In our mind’s eyes these things we see.
We tell God to wait His turn
“Don’t you know I’m busy now?
Things will work by my pattern.”
This life is the shadowland
We see through a glass darkly
Without God it’s sinking sand
What is more important than
Obeying God and doing right?
We don’t live yet in glory land.
Eternity is forever.
We seem to have a problem
From this world our hearts sever.
Prayer time, why do you still play?
No wanting preparation for
Suffering coming our way?
God is real, have no doubt
He will come one day
In the clouds and with a shout.
Then judgment time will begin
Rebelling against God
Brings redress for all sin
Turn to God before too late
The time is now and that today
God is gracious and will wait
Waiting for all time to end
When judgment comes for those left here
Don’t be one of those, my friend.
