The Path Beyond Trees


Do you only believe what's in front of your eyes,

not gravity ever - or winds that arise?


Are you blind to the truth

because of one tree?

Oh, where is the forest

that you cannot see?


And where is your faith when filled with temptation?

Do you trust mere eyes that see only creation?


Some worship mere trees

or shallow, lost sects

while some think they're priv'leged,

who God elects.


Yes, many are lost from Creator they seek,

the forest of truth is unknown and looks bleak.


They love themselves

instead of "these".

They can't see forest

because of the trees.


They think they know salvation.  They don't.

They think they'll see Jesus.  They won't.


They love their lives

and things on shelves.

They love attention,

and themselves.


Your faith is the key!  Unlock forest's door!

The path beyond trees finds grace and much more!
