My Spiritual Laziness
What is this craziness?
Speaking of my spiritual laziness
I work and serve my Lord
I pray and worship, rest assured
This laziness of which I speak
Is to my heart, which continues to seek
Ways in which I can be used
Of laziness I do not wish to be accused
But therein lies the bigger deal
My time, I allow the world to steal
So much before me that I can do
Yet these are the ones I donít see through
I take comfort in the little things
My time and money, small offerings
Yet much more needs can be done
In service to God, the Holy One
I ask for more ways to serve
Then from the offers I swerve
Intercessions for others fall away
Those times I say, then forget to pray
Of needs I can but do not meet
Or when I move God to the back seat
When I choose ways not to work
Overlooking the enemy that lurks
There is so much more I could do
To bring glory and honor to You
So the question is not craziness
Help me, Lord, past my spiritual laziness
Brothers and Sisters,
There have been times when I would say that I would pray for someone or some need. I may even pray then and there for the person then say I will continue to pray for this or that. Then there would be times I actual do as I said. Notice that those times seem to be the exception rather than the rule.
I have seen the unfortunate person looking for some help and have walked by without even looking their way. I have promised to write someone weekly and havenít. Even here at Faithwriters I long and plan to come online to support and encourage my friends and family of writers and then donít get around to it.
I am not saying that I do nothing for the Lord. I serve and I serve with passion. However, there is more that I can do. Some of it is as simple as remembering a need or greeting someone. There are so many times that I could do something that would be edifying, but choose to do something else (say watch TV or something)
This is a wake up call for me to get the most of my time here on earth to introduce people to Jesus and live to glorify God, the Father. If this helps wake you up or evaluate the use of your time then I pray that you learn and grow. Laziness comes in stages, first the little things then grows to the big things. God bless.
