When I fail to do what God has told me is His work, When I close my eyes to people hurting, hungry, and lost, When I ignore the truth through God's eyes when saying I love Him, When I pursue man's idea of success pushing God's definition aside, All I've really done is prove to everyone that I've lied. When I have willingly entered into a covenant with God, When I have further prayed and pledged to follow His Word, When I blow one more chance, one more round as the Prodigal, When I carelessly forget my promises, in me I have shown Evil has won, My actions scream to all I don't appreciate anything God's done. When I choose unforgiveness, blindness and deafness, When I justify harm in any way to any other human being, When I take justice into my own hands and say its in God's name, When I am silent to protect my own status and skin, The winner's circle may be where I stand, but it is no win. When "things" become more precious to me than people, When color blinds me to humanity or power corrupts and devours, When I determine a persons character based on wealth or fame, All of these are my sins against mankind, and against the All Mighty, My decisions, my consequences, my greed, my turn from His Right. When in the fight to change everyone, everything to fit my perception, When because of my anger I have no glimmer of compassion or humanity, When all I do is scream to attempt to let others not be heard, When all I see is my agenda, what I have lost, my pain, my true heart, Here I have proven with actions how much of my life God has a part. ---dfav 01/23/2021
There is, according to society,
No right, no wrong, it’s but relative
To who you are and who you’re with
To push and conquest and what they give.
It’s perfectly okay what you believe
As long as you don’t share it with me
For that could cross my comfort zone
Where I am is all I need to be.
No black, no white just gray it seems
Endless oceans of unanchored ships
Pursue yourself your self filled dreams.
Forget the Bible or even etiquette
Throw out common sense laws and intent
Dance solo to the beat you choose
It matters not the rules you’ve bent.
Then when consequences rear their heads
How can society even know
The things you’ve done, the things you’ve said?
But God’s a God of absolutes
There is a right, there is a wrong.
Whether you believe or not
God’s grace is sufficient through it all
God works if you but give Him a chance
The world’s opinion is but a crumbling wall.
