What god do you follow

The God of the Bible

Or a man made Idol

 

The true God is our Father

His love will take you farther

 

An idol we can make with our hands

They make promises that can never stand

 

Idols sit in their places

Our God is in all places

The truth is hard to swallow

Jesus I’m so in love with You

It’s Your word that carries me through

 

It’s Your spirit that gives me conviction

It’s Your voice that gives me direction

 

When life’s too hard to handle on my own

You remind me that I’m not alone

As a young boy

I had no place to turn

A relationship with my Father

my heart would just burn

 

The abuse would start

To my dismay

A fight would break out

I had to run away

 

I had no place to run

Had no place to go

What would I do

I didn’t even know

 

There seemed to be no end

To all the abuse

Staying away from home

I had to find an excuse

 

First there was school

Then friends

Then work

A relationship with my father

My heart still hurt

 

I was introduced to God

Through a mutual friend

My only interest in Him

Was to put the abuse to an end

 

Little did I know

For God I would gain a desire

A relationship with my Heavenly Father

Is now what I aspire

When I cannot sleep I often sit and write

What about, praising God and doing what is right

 

Making right choices is how God wants us to live

The struggle is we often tend to not want to give

 

Adequate time to think in order to make right choices

In our head we have to compete with other voices

 

In times like these we have to learn to decide

To listen to God’s spirit in His direction we will abide

 

It is not easy and often difficult at best

As we chose His voice we learn to pass the test

 

We are tested as we grow and learn to walk

In God’s ways we have to do more than just talk

 

When we make right choices it is a win and not lose

To make right choices we have to seek God in all we do

There was a man who hung on a cross

He therefore died for the lost

The sick He did heal

Before He ate His last meal

 

As a boy He started to teach

For Gods glory He did reach

 

His church He will build

Not even satan can steal

 

So when tempted to sin

Reach up for Jesus to win

 

You see heaven’s a real place

For all that finish the race

 

It’s not how fast or slow we run

Run into the Arms of the Son
