Going God’s Way
When the human ego shouts “My Way!”
It becomes difficult, if not impossible,
To listen and go God’s Way!
Has the world not taught us
To steer our life in the path of success?
Has not the world convinced us
Of the material benefits of prosperity?
The luxury of opulent, decadent living,
The seductiveness of power and status?
The insidious influence of the world
Wraps itself around us,
Until morally blinded,
We covet their tantalising goals!
Only to discover discontent, unfulfilled dreams!
To find in the endless pursuit of pleasure,
Nausea, heart-ache, futility!
The gentle voice of God, within, nudges,
“I am your refuge and fortress,”
Let ME be your guide in this wilderness!
Wisdom is seeing things from God’s perspective,
With insight, we find ourselves inept
To be the captain of our soul;
Human nature is weak and vulnerable,
Often unable to withstand the vicious assault of Satan,
To peace of mind and serenity of heart!
We realise going God’s way is best
To achieving real success,
To having a happy, loving, peaceful
Contented and meaningful life!
Let us not then, in the midst of the hectic bustle of worldly life
Ever forget that “man does not live by bread alone,
But from every word that comes from the mouth of God!”
