Complicated Life

“It’s my destiny and I must do it.”

That’s what some people say.

Whether it’s God’s plan, they care not one whit.

“I’ll just go my own way.”


Our years pass and death will one day arrive.

No one stays always young.

First you’re twenty-one – then you’re forty-five!

Years fly – you’re soon outstrung.


The Bible gives us just seventy years.

You’ll find that comes real fast.

Heartache, sickness and all our earthbound fears

Are things that will not last.


Life is too short to hold on to grudges.

That’s a hurt you don’t need.

You’ll find it robs you of time “in wedges.”

Look to Christ with all speed.


You’ll find there is joy in serving Jesus.

He throws light on your way.

Ev’ry adventure with Him is a plus.

Now let His love hold sway.
