Come Again

on

Silly me

Attempting to force the illogical to make sense

Desperately seeking approval at Yahweh’s expense

He paid for everything, but for me, that’s not enough

Is that how I sound to God when I seek validation and stuff?

The value we place on pats on the back, attention, and the likes?

May seem inexpensive, but all do have a price

Instant messaging the Lord that His justification is insufficient

Even your idol has an idol; each one’s throwing up titles, like self-sufficient

On these feeble legs, determined to fight, I take my stand

Against the approval, validation, and justification that’s on demand

I’m running from idolatry- Jesus you’re the only image worth a continued look

It’s nice to have the approval of this world but it was this world that forsook

My precious Savior and traded Him for a well-known thief

People are with you than against you, I hear as wisdom speaks

The road to safety is found through confirmation in Him

Not being tossed by every comment, glance, or opinion

Come again

      Aww, sis! Thank you so much. I’m tearing up and I don’t even know what it is. I am so grateful that God gets the glory from these very necessary pains. May God continue to bless you in all you do, K Marie!
