That lump in your throat.
It’s injustice and hate.
It’s disappointment
when God seems to be too late
 
we see kids dying
adorned with flies.
We see politicians
replacing truth with lies
 
we see disunity
among those dark and light
as if human skin color
is looked at as a plight
 
we wish to go our own way
and regard our bodies as our own
we witness unbearable evil
invading our comfortable homes
 
we are desensitized to greed
because we still want more
we let impurity in
through the front door
 
We are utterly surprised
when people are sold and bought
As if everyone else is to blame
and we are not
 
when are we going to really see
the true cause of this all?
A dependence on our own wills
Humanity has devolved to a crawl
 
The God who made human hearts
Is calling us to obey
Not to confine our freedoms
But because abundance comes through His way
 
Many can’t do the equation
The dots simply do not connect
If we will look at the world around us
And simply pause to reflect
 
“Giving Jesus a try”
is simply not enough
He wants our whole hearts
No matter how impure and rough
 
Transformation will infect the world
And will show people what is right
If we embrace freedom’s call
And offend the seemingly endless night
