Hope He doesn't catch me today

I hope God doesn't catch me today.
Sure I know He loves me, but who wants to change
What they've already worked so hard to become?
I haven't done anything wrong, I had a reason for everything
Who wants to be pressured into devoting one's future for change?
Can I not sign myself up for adoption but carry on with my life?
If God catches me, I've seen the power, the change is drastic.
People act like fools, are shameless for what they do; transformed.
The stability and strength of their conviction to die to everything for Christ
Is staggeringly frightening, what if I lose things and my life changes?
I think I've got a handle on my life right now; my accomplishments are great.
God catching me could change the comfort I have created in my life.
I have seen the grip He's had on people; a peaceful willingness to do anything
It changes their lives and those around them. I can't do that, people would stare.
I love God and Jesus, and pray for the Holy Spirit, but inside I am running away.
I'm content with my life, with what I've made it, I fear gambling with it for God.
And I know the intense hold He has on you when He catches you in His arms
People don't even notice things disappearing or reputations changing,
They're even comforted by the solitude in God, void of any distractions.
Sacrificing every single part of their lives in surrender to God, because they've felt His embrace.
Society, despair, culture, fear, time, have no grip on them; they rest on none but God
In tune with His will, they follow Him steadfast. What a life! Trusting in alluding power.
But I sure don't want God to catch me to change my life, it just might change.


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