Although we can be fence sitters

With one foot on either side;

There comes a point in life

Where we’re challenged to decide.

A fence sitter is nonchalant

And is not passionate about a plea,

Because there can be confusion from his viewpoint

And the bigger picture he cannot see.

Until we receive a revelation

That there will always be a fight,

We will never truly support a cause

Or become successful in our plight.

But how can we know

Whether we’re on the right side?

Unless a conviction does take place

When scales fall and open our eyes.

God is not a God of confusion

And He hates lukewarmness too;

He prefers we’re either hot or cold

But where convictions they are true.

It depends what side of fence we’re on

In our beliefs indeed;

That either everything is a miracle

Or it’s not, although one is deceived.

Fence sitters are mere man pleasers

And never rock the boat,

But to please man is to disobey God

And to be considered as a goat.

A fence sitter doesn’t care

And won’t take responsibility,

To outline and express his cause

Since no clear direction he can see.

Fences do eventually come down

When a renovation does take place,

And we’re forced to make a decision

Where reality we must face.

The fenceline may seem comfortable

But it’s never the solution,

Because to sit on same it eventually hurts

As it becomes an obvious protrusion.

We’re either with God or we’re not

And it’s something we must ponder,

As we all so desperately need a Savior

And the beauty of His wonder.

There’s only two sides and always will be

But it’s never too late to swap;

Let’s ensure we’re all in God’s pasture indeed

And to the devil’s lies put a stop.
