AWAKEN

If life is but a vapor, it is time that we live for what is lasting. As I reflected on that idea, the words of this original poem resonated with me:

Wearing our sin like a badge of honor, calling evil good and good evil.

Seeing only the immediate in the midst of eternity. Worshiping the creation at the expense of the Sustainer.

Driven by the incessant tyranny of the urgent rather than the urgent need for the one in whom there is no tyranny only immutability.

Freezing over the darkened ashes: addiction, abuse, but all the worse apathy. Wishing for the warmth of a burning flame that would allow a moment’s tranquility.

Living a fantasy, building a bigger house of cards knowing it is doomed to catastrophe, sweating in a race of irrelevancy, invincible only in our lunacy.

Lord awaken our hearts with a new vibrancy, our eyes with needed clarity, our hands and feet with a clarion destiny.

Awaken from your hibernation and welcome to a new spiritual and enduring nation.

  1. So well expressed. I feel the truth of “Wishing for the warmth of a burning flame that would allow a moment’s tranquility….Living a fantasy, building a bigger house of cards…”
    I have to keep taking myself back to the Basic again and again, so hopefully He doesn’t have to do it for me the hard way.

  2. So very well said. So many think I am weird because of having old fashioned Christian morals.
    I would rather stand by Christ and be laughed at than be cast into Hell with the in crowd.Joseph- Anthony: Green
