The Blessing of Obedience

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?

Why now?

What are we supposed to do?

And how?

<>

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

So incomplete!

<>

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.
