lies

Posted: June 24, 2014 in Devotional/Poetry

It seems so good and like it’d work
that it would really satisfy
with no drawbacks, plenty of perks
& I can’t see that it’s a lie

We all do this more than we know,
so badly we don’t notice
we agree with everyone here below
unaware of what we miss

we have nothing from our birth
And nothing that we gain can fill the hole
that’s been there since the fall of earth
and we switch from wrong goal to wrong goal

some things are nice but that is all
and we either reject them or in them seek life
Not just enjoy them but we, Like Saul
start hoping in them… then our hope  will die

often pursuing opposite dreams,
When one fails the other is sought
one day putting our  hopein wealth and things
than thinking simplicity is what we sought

Or maybe in our food or family
or in being liked by all our friends
Maybe even in being holy
or in accomplishing noble ends

but almost worse than our false hopes in
The lies about pure dust satisfying,
is that culture, Satan, our flesh and Sin
Convince us God’s plan is boring

We believe that being holy isn’t fun,
That we’re missing out if we do what’s right.
We want to see our church time get done,
instead of getting excited on Saturday night

we don’t look forward to a family,
or to having someone to answer to every night
We fear to have responsibility
when it really means is a life with more delight

How can we help each other not believe lies?
It’s like having to be told the sounds that we hear
Or that the colors and things we see with our eyes
aren’t real at all despite we feel them when their near

But here is the chief fight with things who our lives would steal
The spiritual warfare of which we have heard
It is choosing not to believe what our eyes and ears say is real,
And believe what God has said in his Word.
