WHAT’S GOING ON!

There’s a wind of pestilence sweeping over the land,
Let’s battle against it by getting on our knees.

There’s a shadow of stygian darkness covering the land,
Let’s dispel it by lighting lamps of gospel righteousness.

There’s a flood of destruction overflowing the land,
Let’s stem it by constructing dams and dykes of protection.

There’s a conspiracy to overthrow the age-old paths of decency,
Let’s band together to return what is sensible and true.

There’s a move of the enemy and alien over the land,
Let’s war against them by storming the gates of hell.

There is the work of the Holy Spirit stealing through the land,
Let’s partner together with Him to retrieve and restore the lost!

REST EASY

People are often in a tizzy,
If they don’t keep themselves quite busy!
They often don’t know what it’s to rest sweetly,
For they think it’s wrong to just take it easy!

Running around madly trying to do something,
May not just be the answer needed for everything.
Resting brings dividends that are often unexpected,
Yet it’s the one thing that’s quite frankly neglected!

Rocking chairs can be in constant motion,
Yet they don’t get anywhere for all their locomotion!
Its not necessary to make such a noisy commotion,
In order to get that great and wonderful promotion!

God in wisdom did ordain cessation of movement,
Alternating work with relaxation at the right moment.
We in our foolish frenzy for consumption,
Often pursue goals in frantic assumption!

So take some time to sit in peaceful quietness,
Its actually a hallmark of godly piousness!
Take some time to spend in restoring idleness,
Its a great need for continued righteousness!
