Hope deferred will make your heart grow sick;
Thatís what He said, so thereís no doubt about this;
Hope based on what, seems to be the question;
You must let His Truth have its resurrection
Am I living in compromise every day?
Am I doing the things that He has to say?
Thatís what it will take if I am to survive;
Otherwise my choices will hold me in lies.
To not look at this, when I have been warned,
is willful rebellion thatís ruined all forms...
of God being able to protect; intercede;
Itís automatic: Thereíll be tragedies.
Faithís expectations can only come,
from a Father that walks daily with His sons;
Then, I will be sure that Heíll do all He says;
Short of this, my expectation is dead.
Hard words to hear; Thereís harder things coming;
Thereís some things I think we can do...
But, the greatest threat that I have observed;
You donít really think this is true.
I guess you canít help it; Youíre too busy to hear;
Compromise has been there for many years;
Not just in you, in every last one;
Will your faith sustain you for what is to come?
And even if this didnít come at all;
You still know thereís compromise in your life right now.
Talk about pushing events off into the future;
Are you the most guilty of this?
Yet, you continue to hide and still expect...
God to come to your stiff-necked assist.
This wonít be enough to build faith that you need;
Has it been, up to this time, right now?
Do you like deception, because in your heart you know,
that is the only way thatís left to go?
I donít care how many years youíve lived on this earth;
His power has been here for you to birth...
at least the knowledge you already have...
At least, to experience His power in that.
At least; At least...with problems right now;
Is it ever a thought to ask Him, How?
At least, to find out what Heís already said;
At least, to acknowledge Heís been raised from the dead.
How do I not? If someoneís alive,
you talk to them...but you justify:
Iíll assume what Heís saying and run my own life;
You remain your own lord; That produced all your strife!
You know that He said: ĎYou are not your own;
I have bought you with a great price.í
What in the world do you think that means?
To ignore Him and run your own life????
You know better than that; He gave you a brain;
Well, I pray and ask Him to bless me.
Would you answer that request from your own child...
to further encourage their pain?
Without making Him Lord, and knowing what Heís said,
your child will walk in the way that youíve lead.
I think the thing that you really fear;
is the question you know that you will hear:
Why did you treat Me as dead?
Is it too late? In my opinion:
The timeís getting short to turn to Him.
I donít doubt that there are many regrets;
But, thatís not repentance so that you can get...
all of the things that are yours, as an heir;
The elimination of each one of your cares.
