Misses You, Come Home and Make Him a Priority
The world cries out for justice and liberation,
but rarely comes to the Father
The world cries out for peace from Heaven above,
but rarely sings to the Lord with faith, joy and love.
The world cries out for individual wants and desires,
but rarely worships Him
who truly inspires.
The world cries out for cures of diseases and
but rarely sits, listens and is silently still.
The world cries out for knowledge, wisdom and insight,
but it rarely takes time
to heal His Kingdom’s blight,
act selflessly, repent, be sincere and contrite.
The world cries out to answers to questions in their daily lives,
takes time to worship, transform, love, and revive.
The world cries
out for all of the insanity to stop,
but it uses most of its resources to shop, shop, shop.
The world cries out for a clear, vivid, concise picture
rarely does its mind, heart, and soul contemplate scripture.
world cries out when the earth doth shake and rumble,
but rarely does it act selfless, meek and
The world cries out in times of tragic fate,
it rarely lets go of greed, sin and hate.
The world cries out for
individual lives to be enriched,
but it rarely releases Him to do His will in a hitch,
you serve Him, help His less fortunate, move, and make the switch?
The world cries out to fulfill hopes, desires, and dreams,
but it spends most
of its free time in front of video game screens.
The world secures
its possessions and valuables from theft by others,
but rarely shares abundance and blessings with
its sisters and brothers.
The world cries out to receive gifts
which only He can bestow,
but rarely does mankind trust, have faith, relax, and just let go.
The world cries out often for a rebirth, renewal, and revision,
but it spends most of its free time in front of the television.
The world cries out to see His holy and blessed face
but it rarely goes out
and serves others with His grace.
The world cries out for redemption,
delivery and salvation,
but it rarely passes on the faith to the next generation.
Make time to partake in His daily feast.
Prioritize His importance as first,
Trust in Him to fulfill His prophecy of “Thy Kingdom
Rejoice, arise, awaken, unite and ALL become as ONE.
Take time to turn off distractions from your daily lives.
Be silent and be
still, feel His Holy Spirit thrive!
Every once in a while honor
Him with a sacrificial fast.
Show Him love and compassion for His children who are fed last.
He sees through your eyes, hears through your ears and touches through
Will you offer them to Him to heal pain and suffering throughout all of the land?
How many times has the world sung out and prayed the words
“Thy Kingdom Come and Thy Will Be Done”
awaken and arise, He is here, NOW, let’s get busy; there is much to be done.
Turn away from selfish and empty worldly desires.
Ignite the burning flame within
your hearts and inspire.
Go out into the world and partake in charitable
Transform, love, heal, and revitalize people who are in great need.
as though He is here right NOW, be His Apostles and live His Creed!
