Remember Lot's Wife

Remember Lot's Wife

Can we turn our backs
and leave the world behind,
detach ourselves for Jesus
and a greater treasure find?

Or are we like Lot's wife,
although she left that day,
her heart was in the world
where she really longed to stay!

Can we lay down our trophies
when Jesus calls us out?
will we recognize His voice
or be filled with doubt?

Moses obeyed God's voice...
Abraham left it all...
can we forsake the world
to answer a higher call?

Our allegiance will be tested
so remember Lot's wife,
who disobeyed the Lord
and forfeited her life!

I pray we'll be counted
worthy to pay the price,
and leave the world behind
without having to think twice! (c)

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
