“Thoughts Aired”

What in anything is worth anything?
What in life is worth the pain?
What’s worth losing to something gain?
What’s it all for if all goes to nothing?

Shine bright, dream, before vanishing;
Pray true, heart, for some hopeful time;
Fail fast, body, from this famishing;
Hang low, hands that worked the crime.

Above the soft white swims by,
Below the hard hears a goodbye
Uttered by dying lips, last dance,
Burns now away change’s chance.

Little lasts my strength for need,
Fallow lies the ground for seed,
Burns slow another part of given thread,
Stagnates the water and molds the bread.

Ends the dream of happy days,
Fades the hope of comfortable life,
Strife’s filled many yesterdays,
Comfort dies at the hands of strife.

Never forget it nor its value diminish,
What is worth most, treasure, cherish,
Until last breath, yes, until life’s finish,
Ever in salvation through Christ relish.

Sight to see the given good is imperfect, truth I say,
Damage see like the sun in the sky on a cloudless day.

“If This Is All There Is”

“If This Is All There Is”

If this is all there is,
The here and the now
And nothing after
When we let out our last breath
Then we’re all wasting our time
So let’s waste it as we see fit,
Feed on lust, lies, sins, all of it.
What does it matter?
It doesn’t matter,
It never mattered.

If all we are is dust
And there is only matter
Then what’s the point of this
Period of time we call life?

If we all exist for a little time
And then disappear into nothing
Then do any of us really live
And if so, what’s the point of it?

Who has the answers to these questions?
Only a true fool would say
These questions don’t matter.

I’d like an answer that satisfies
My heart and my mind,
I don’t want excuses,
I want to hear the best answers
The so-called smartest and wisest can offer.

I don’t want theories that hold no weight,
I don’t want subjective nothingness,
I don’t want answers to hypothetical existence,
I want the real thing, it has to be something of substance,
I don’t want the superficial and hollow,
I want something true and something sure.

The world’s wisdom can’t answer these questions.
The worldings fail to give the answers,
All that the worldlings give amounts to
Hollow, shallow, superficial, insufficient,
Sad attempts by usaved souls to give
What they cannot because they reject
The Way and the Truth and Life,
So all they know is confusion, falsehood, and death.

“Oh Brother, oh Sister, Rejoice in the Lord!”

I hope the words encourage you, brothers and sisters in Christ.

“Oh Brother, oh Sister, Rejoice in the Lord!”

If you feel weak, when you feel so weak
Remember that the Lord is your strength.
If you can’t rejoice in present circumstances,
Oh brother, oh sister, rejoice in the Lord!

When things seem out of control
Remember that God’s still in control.
When the world seems crazier than before
Remember that God’s still on His throne!

When everything seems wrong in the world and humanity
Remember that God will make everything right one day.
When there seems to be so much negativity around
Spread positivity, praise and rejoice in the Lord!

Rejoice in the Lord despite the darkness of the times
For He is your joy and your strength and your song.
Oh brother, oh sister, rejoice in the Lord your God
For He is you light and your hope and your life!

Bring your troubles, bring your pain to the Lord;
It’s difficult now but things will change, so rejoice in the Lord.
This life isn’t easy and problems are bound to come
But keep your head up, soldier of Christ, rejoice in the Lord!

God sees it all and knows the reasons for everything
But we don’t have all the answers so let us rest in His goodness;
We can’t discover all of the whys behind all of the tragedies
So let us trust in God’s perfect will and knowledge.

Let us rejoice in God now while we have time and breath.
Come now, brother, come now, sister, rejoice in the Lord.
It’s because of all that’s happening and all that we don’t know
That we need to trust in the living God and rejoice in Him always!
…….
Glory to God Alone.
