“Do Not Look Away”

“Do Not Look Away”

Do not look away
And do not sway
To evil influence
Or false pretense.

We’re dreaming our dreams
And can’t hear the screams,
The suffering still cry,
Their tears who’ll dry?

The eyes that look away
Say what lips won’t say:
Some are too greedy to share
And some too busy to care.

Oh, it’s easy to see
We’re all too busy,
Just too busy to love,
Give of what we have.

We wake up and we see the world,
It seems things are cold and whirled,
Things are not as they could be,
Things could be better, you see.

We’re all prone to doubt,
To wandering further out,
We are falling faster still,
We’re running farther still.

Do not look away,
Avoid the evil way,
Stand your ground,
Hear truth’s sound.

Trying to fill empty hearts
And put back together parts
Broken by words and deeds;
Oh, this is where it all leads.

Honestly, oh, honestly, it’s a sad life
If it consists of emptiness and strife.
Fight it now and rise above,
Life is not life without love!

Who wants things to be this way?
Who doesn’t want it to go away –
All the strife and the wars and the pain?
We must do what we can, it’s not in vain!

Don’t go that way,
Do not look away,
Stop and turn around,
Follow the true sound.
…………
Glory to God Alone.

“Thinking and Doing” by me.

— This was originally just a comment but I think sharing it here (almost unchanged) can be beneficial to those who read it, if they see the point and do what’s suggested and what I’m encouraging the reader to do. —

Thinking on something is good but once you’ve thought on it for some time, you must act on it, don’t stop with the thinking, go on to the doing, that is, see and seek practical ways of applying what you have thought on.
We’re not just called to think on things, useful as that is, we must move beyond that to the point where we take practical and biblical steps in our lives and really do what we have overlooked, neglected, ignored, trivialized, which of course won’t be easy, no really important things in life are easy, but they’re worth doing and they must be done.
We’re called to obey God’s Word, His commands, out of our love for Him and because those very commands are given by the Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent true and living God, they’re not some silly suggestions of the world, they’re the commands of the Almighty One, our Heavenly Father who knows what’s best for all of His children.
It’s not the wisdom of the world we’re here to acquire and apply, it’s the wisdom of God’s Word, which is more lucid and logical than the world’s wisdom, for it comes from the mind of God and not the imagination of man.
Thinking is good, but it’s not an end, it’s a means to an end, which is doing. Abiding in Christ we will bear fruit in our lives and we will be seen as those set apart for God, in His family and of His Kingdom. If we have His light in us, we must not hide it, it must shine so the world sees. Yes, we won’t fit, but that’s not a bad thing, for to be more like Christ is more important than any of the opinions the world has of us.
Obedience to God, no matter how difficult, is more important than the opinions of you held by any people of the world.
Hopefully this helps someone who reads this who may have stopped at the thinking stage and hasn’t moved to the doing stage yet. By God’s help, they can and will if they seek to obey God’s commands, to do God’s will.

“They Do Evil”

“They Do Evil”

Are they not evil who are paid to murder?
Do they see that they only descend further?
They do evil and yet believe they do well.
Who rejoice in it other than demons of Hell?

Do they not know they fill wrath’s cup?
Do they not see that they only heap up
More guilt for the day of judgment?
Truly foolish it is to refuse to repent!

“False Gods Do Not Save”

“False Gods Do Not Save”

In this world, much evil plagues and lies float like clouds above,
Indifference infects, fear paralyzes, ours becomes a cold love.
Where is freedom found? Is liberation possible? Someone answer,
Living God help now us in this world of confusion and sin the cancer.

I spit upon all the filthy and worthless gods in this world,
Come bring your best to stand against the eternal Lord
None of them shall escape, none shall beat any odds,
The divine conflagration will consume all false gods.

Answer, who’s going to bring freedom to the enslaved?
In the darkness of unbelief and idolatry, a path paved
With a deceived mind and sincerity not equaling truth
The loss will be bitter, the end is sure, face the proof.

Mutter another prayer to your deaf gods in the dark,
The realization of your folly shall soon be your mark,
Like a blind man groping in darkness for some food,
You the idolater wasted time instead of doing good.

You are spitting hatred and intolerance again, I see,
Another deceived tool of the devil thinking self free
But know that your end shall be a most unhappy one,
You will lose your life, lose it all, nothing will be won.

Gods will not win against the living and true God,
They’ll all fall like nothing, those worthless idols,
And with them all the opposition foolish enough
To reject God and make themselves Him enemy.
