Let’s not waste our life
On petty and trivial things;
As to focus on this mindset
Much stress and pain this brings.
Let’s look at the bigger picture
And as to why we all exist…
And what our purpose is on earth
And as to how the truth we’ve missed.
Let’s search deeper in our soul to find
The void that we’ve ignored;
The need for God’s unconditional love
And our need of Him as Lord.
Many times we search in places
Where we simply cannot find,
The answers which we really need
Since we choose to remain blind.
But once we do discover
God’s forgiveness and His grace;
The true riches and abundant wealth
Will be reflected on our face.
Since the love that emanates from God
Can never be replaced,
And when He finally fills the void
This joy we will embrace.
And God’s love can then be shared
To fulfil the Royal Law well;
To love God with our heart and soul
And our neighbour as ourselves.
