I come not as a good speaker or of wisdom,
Declaring unto you the Heavenly Kingdom;
Not knowing your thoughts of Jesus Christ,
Why He was not saved, rather sacrificed;
Being with you in weakness and in fear,
In much trembling unknown He was near;
I preach not in words of wisdom by man,
Rather the power of the Spirit only can;
In the wisdom of men faith never be cast,
Only in the Power of God to make it last.
We are short tempered loosing interest,
Attention deficit, road rage as a motorist,
Emotions alter in wisdom and judgment,
For leading you to an internal torment;
Want to pursue God as your mind says no,
Along with temptation and lust that flow;
But faith in God runs narrow and straight,
Never vary to stray from or to deviate;
For faith in God will not steer you wrong,
As you persevere while growing strong.
