Life But A Breath: A Poem
Life But A Breath
If only we could see
the real story
the one behind the scenes
The one of our savior fighting
constantly for you and me.
Our hearts wouldn't be as sad,
we would contradictorily be filled with hope,
we would count our joys in suffering
and only in Christ would boast.
My job here is not finished
It's only complete in him
The one who died and rescued me
and saved me from my sins
I am no longer lost
In him alone, I am found.
The truth has set my heart free
In him my life resounds.
Come join me in the call to hope
The call for freedom from fear.
The call to take up our cross
and to know the Lord is near.
Our lives are but a breath on earth,
Heaven is our home.
And when my heart cant take anymore,
My hope is in Christ, alone.
To see the children dying,
starving for your grace.
I remember that nothing is "deserved"
and they are looking in your face.
Your truth has saved them from their death
even on earth as it ends.
If we could gain perspective
Lord, your heart could you lend?
We can see the truth and rejoice
That Christ's name is being spread
The reality of the world, is that we are all the walking dead.
Life is not meant to be satisfactory,
or even obsolete
Its meant to be lived to the full,
for it is in suffering we are complete.
