God, oh God, why do you love me?
I am human and weak,
Foolish in how I live my life,
Ungrateful in how I take you for granted
And yet—in the midst of my sin and ignorance,
You Yell Out “I Am Here! Waiting with open arms to show you my eternal love”
You offer me Peace Love Joy and a future that I could never imagine filled with awe of all you did.
You also offer me a place in you Majestic Kingdom;
As your Daughter, your Princess, your child.
I turn around and run to you but get lost along the way,
Distracted by the world telling me
“Stay, have fun, there is nothing there that you want.
Why go to a place with rules when with ME you could live guilt free?
Try anything you want
Steal Lie Cheat or if that isn’t your style
How ‘bout Work Earn Live in Luxury
Or Fame Fortune Lovers
And Good works Be nice to people Be a model human being
But don’t go There to Him
Don’t acknowledge His presence
Don’t receive His Love when you could receive all the ‘loving’ that you want here.”
But in the end, I run to you—
Into your arms—
Where I wish to stay
