There will always be a longing of the soul
For something more, for something whole.
And in an attempt to satisfy
We have to ask the question “why?”
Why are we here?
What are we supposed to do?
Will obeying two commandments be enough?
To simply love…
The One true God with all we’ve got
And our neighbours a little bit more than a lot.
Even if it’s hard
To fight this battle of the heart
Where selfishness wants to reign
And compassion feels like pain.
Because to truly care
Is to get out there;
To love the lonely and the lost
No matter what the cost!
Religion in its purest form
Is so far from the norm.
To serve the orphan and the slave
Such a different kind of brave.
We may be filled with good intentions
However, faith without obedience
Is an unfinished sentence…
Love without deed
And yet it’s worth the sacrifice,
Because God already paid the price
He loved as first and set us free
To shine His light for them to see;
That there is only one way
And we have a simple choice to make each day
To say ‘yes’ or ‘no’
To stay or go.
The blessing of obedience
Is a gift in itself
As we become less and He becomes more
And our lives make more sense than ever before.
