We leave His light of life in the beginning
We leave the joy which places a smile within
He is there with us as we come out stepping
Through the darkness into this world of sin

We begin innocently loving all around us
But soon the world grabs us from all sides
As we begin to learn and feel this new life
All of our senses will now become so alive

In our mind we begin to hear the two voices
Two spirits seeking our hearts daily to sway
One who will lead our hearts back to the light
Another whose promise leads to foreboding days

We will experience so many different things
Finding from each we must wisely choose a way
For with each a path surely lies ahead of us
Where some will be lost or found along the way

Sadly we will find each day we will be tempted
With what seems to be valuable worldly things
If not careful our minds might become twisted
By the unholy wares these temptations bring

We will find the enemies sinful evil among us
Seeking many unaware souls to enslave each day
If he entice’s us to choose the wrong path
From God our hearts and minds will stray

We find there is a very sure promise
If we choose to follow the enemies ways
That we will surely die within our sins
If we find ourselves too weak to turn away

For this was what the enemy promised us
The moment when our lives did first begin
Those fatal moments when we were tempted
Moving from the light beginning a life of sin

We each have a choice to make daily
Between the two voices we will hear
And we all must be extremely careful
To listen clearly through both our ears

We must also be diligent in what we seek
And with what we promise to do or speak
For once our words escape from our lips
They will no longer be our own to keep

For our spoken words have certain powers
Like the one who is sentenced to die
With our words we can lead another to life
Or cause many to lose faith and hope inside

If we want to really live our lives fully
Reaching the true potential of our dreams
Then we must learn to humble ourselves
Letting self die before our eternal King

Surrendering self In all we do and say
Before the sight of our living God
Rising as a new creation by His grace
Becoming full of His empowering love

Pray hard your feet will never stumble
Over the rock which causes many to fall
As we daily keep our ears and hearts open
Listening day and night for His sweet call

For His spirit has the only life saving power
Which can lead one’s heart to embrace His way
Guiding new believing spirits into His truth
Enriching everything in their lives each day

For once you allow sinful self to die
In the Lord your spirit will surely rise
Inspiring certain new change in your life
As His living word opens your heart and eyes

He will light your daily path before you
Helping when you might stumble or fall
Never leaving you without His presence
As He will always answer your prayers call

When we find the darkness of night to come
As you hear the softness of His tender voice
When you close your eyes to go to sleep
You will know you have made the right choice.

For you will hold His treasure so tightly
In your heart never letting it to escape
Finding never to come a time in your life
Again when you will be without His embrace

The one which you felt when your life began
The one whom for a time you would not choose
Finally understanding He never left your side
Because His sheep He chooses not to lose.

Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please him,
for whoever would draw near to God must believe
that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
