Working hard, filling our days,
Meeting deadlines, getting caught in a maze.
Caring for family, spending quality time,
All of this before the midnight chime.
Making goals, seeing them through,
Knowing others are watching to see how you do.
Someone is waiting - it's a rush, so just hurry
No time to saunter, just get ready and scurry!
Another day comes, a repeat of the last.
The hours fill up, then the day is past.
How can we stop this roller coaster ride?
We're missing the real life - the much brighter side.
Seeking our purpose, we search 'til we drop,
Too weary to pursue it, but not ready to stop.
Which purpose is the one meant just for us?
It is all so complex - such a bother and fuss!
Ah, now I understand, I am beginning to see…
Life is our bridge to eternity!
In order to get there, our focus must change.
It may be difficult and seem a little strange.
The first step is the most important of all -
To set aside OUR goals and listen for God's call.
Relinquishing our needs, we begin to understand.
We need to seek guidance about what God has planned.
God, our own creator, knows what is best for us.
He'll provide what we need if we let go and trust.
When we lean upon Him, He will guide our way.
Life will have real meaning as we embrace each day!
