When we understand why we do

The things that we do…

It’s refreshing and it’s liberating

With much focus and clarity too.

When we understand why we love

And the very source of same…

It all makes sense, the foundation of it

As we revere the Lord’s name.

When we understand why we act

We’re set free in many ways…

Since there’s a purpose and a reason

With a steadfastness that will stay.

Understanding the root of the problem

Will allow healing to take place,

As it digs deeper to discover the source

When the underlying issues we face.

Understanding will bring forth wisdom

When God reveals what needs to be unveiled;

With a transparency that lifts the heavy burden

Restoring the weak and frail.

Understanding the root of our beliefs

Will be a light to our feet,

When we fear the Lord with awe and wonder

Where respect and honour meets.

The question should be asked

As to why we do the things we do…

So we’re not the spiritually blind leading the blind

But rather sincere, honest and true.

When we receive a revelation

That we can be severely selfish indeed,

We understand that a change is required

In our words, actions and deeds.

Christ understood why He was nailed to the cross

As it was to set God’s children free;

Having a full understanding of the Father’s vision…

Eternal salvation for you and me.
