Changing Churches

Dullness of spirit:
The pervasive sense as I sit here.
The words I hear are not new.
I search for lost enthusiasm.
I look for learning, or inspiration,
Hungry, but dulled by apathy.
I fight to push through the fog,

I ask God what road I took.
When did I turn this corner?
What detour am I on?

“Critical spirit” is my very next thought.
“Laziness” or maybe “fatigue” comes next.
“Disloyalty” follows moments later and I am ashamed.

The grass is so much greener over there.
I know it is.
I tried it.
Lots of people agree.

But church is people, not sermons,
And true love is mutually exclusive from critical evaluation.
I have to choose one or the other.

There is really no decision to be made.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
