We are lacking much in our lives each day
Awakening each dawn we try hard to survive
There are many things which we find missing
In this world of flesh where sin never dies
In our hearts and minds, we often try to pray
Yet really only appealing in a half-hearted way
Finding ourselves overwhelmed in these moments
By sinful flesh with its ugliness seeking to stay
We actually live far away from our Gods love
Because of our worldly hunger and selfish needs
With our hearts too hard to really kneel and pray
While daily losing a part of our spirituality
Is there someone who lives who might save us?
Especially the many times when we slip and fall
There is only one true living God who can help us
Yes, the only One known to have endured it all.
1 Corinthians 13:7
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all
things, endures all things.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit
you may abound in hope.
As for that in the good soil, they are those who,
hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and
good heart, and bear fruit with patience.
