“Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ, and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.”
- C.S. Lewis
Only lives under this sun
And goes around a number of times
and while we live under this earthly sun
Are we looking for the Son
Until Kingdom come
On earth as it is in heaven
Our daily bread left unleavened
While we keep searching
Barely scratching the surface
Of all His good works
In the little things of this life
The small simple pleasures
Bringing down glimpses of heaven
Yet we try
and we toil
To make something more of this manna
When really what we have
Is all we will ever need
If we could just stop aiming to please
and chasing our greed
To create growth from the seeds
that only lead
To disdain, agony, and grief
Oh, if His people would just fall to their knees!
Look under the table
and crawl like a beast
Because without God
That is all we'll ever be
Or will you stand tall
and look straight
Because that trail of breadcrumbs
Will lead to something great
and so I dare ask -
How great is your faith?
Do you truly believe it is too little too late?
Or is your mind crumbling as you dissipate into this earthly fate?
Look to the sun and you will see beauty
But for what?
A momentary proving?
Look to the Son and you will find a love beyond measures
Overflowing your cup
Raising all standards
“I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time [appointed] for every matter and purpose for every work. I said in my heart, regarding the subject of the sons of men, God is trying (separating and sifting) them, that they may see that by themselves [under the sun, without God] they are but like beasts.” - Ecclesiastes 3:17-18
