By All Means RUN!


As each day passes by, there is always a need,

But temptation to drift is a real one indeed.

My ears want to dull and my flesh gets its way,

I need to press through, Lord, to hear what You say.

My eyes want to lower and focus on me,

My heart cries aloud, “Help me see what You see”.

I know that is not how You want me to be,

I’m humbled and thankful, You always show me.

Thank You for showing me where I have been,

You’re faithful to increase my hunger within.

Your graciousness, Lord, helps me see You’re the Source,

With Your unending love, wipe away all remorse.

Your plan is not for Your sheep to give in,

But to rise above flesh and crucify sin.

We may be prone to fall short of the mark,

But life spent in neutral is life in the dark.

We’re easily blinded and quite often fooled,

But by Your Son and Your Spirit, we’ve been well schooled.

When we make the decisions and ourselves the boss,

We’ve lost sight of You, and suffer great loss.

Let us be challenged, oh sinner and saint,

Lest we justify sin, and make ourselves great.

We must see what He sees, and keep ourselves pure,

With our purpose refined, and our hearts reassured.

Life is so short, and there’s much to be done,

Keep your eyes set above, and by all means RUN!
