Leaving The Land of
Itís a good thing to renew my mind to the fact,
that all blessings are coming from You;
Not dependent on me being exact;
but, rather, believing You.
And, paramount that Iím willing to alter;
Chase off all ďbirds of preyĒ...
that are trying to feed on the sacrifice finished,
because I donít believe what You say.
How many times, I fight the air;
Make excuses, as if You donít care;
So, here I am; another day...
killing the vultures; maintaining Your way.
I know that You donít want me walking exhausted;
Itís a matter of my persuasion,
because, when I do, what You said comes to pass;
to stop those vultures invasions.
Like Abraham, Iíve made some wrong turns;
as Iíve tried, my life to expand,
when the only instruction Youíve given to me:
Let multiplication come from My Hand.
Thank you for favor that allowed me this;
How could I not be grateful?
But, I ask you, Lord, because Iím Your heir,
for the manifestation of Your perfect care.
The world systemís pressures,
with many wrong turns,
seems able to hold captive
with all that Iíve learned.
Yet, if Abraham had made statement like that,
He would have remained in Ur.
Itís harder to come out of Ur than I thought,
when casually reading Your Word;
But, my choice to stay in this kind of decay,
becomes even more absurd!
I imagine, with Abraham, it too preparation;
A very definite plan,
to actually leave that land of idols
and place himself in Your Hands.
If my plan is not to come out of that way,
I doubt thereís inheritance for any day.
Your supply and protection is only needed,
when You are my source
and Iím being completed...
to prove that Your payment is not in vain,
as I leave the Idols of Abundant Pain.
