College poem #19

“Packed and Ready”

Lord, the world says “Stay a while, rest yourself and enjoy
The pleasures all around, and have a good time, boy.”
Yet, although what it says sounds good, the truth its words do not condone.
Your promise in the Word reminds me that this world is not my own.
We are sojourners in a foreign land, on a journey to our King,
Who gave us spiritual life anew and is with us through everything.
So help me to continuously listening for Your voice, O Lord, ready to go whenever You say.
I pray that You would be my guiding light of my life, Lord, every day.
