Enough

there never seems to be enough time in my busy world
Iím busy driving the kids to school
to their music lessons
driving to the service station to fuel up
the Prado/ the Rav4/ the Landcruiser/
the large vehicle
to carry all our shopping
more stuff to put in our overcrowded house
we need to build an extension for all our things
of course the kids need their own rooms, their own computer
the schools expect it, you know
we have separate TVís so no-one argues
about the choice of show
but thereís not enough time to do things
for church for community
- what community?
weíre busy people
itís a tough world these days

there never seems to be enough money
itís a struggle to keep our heads afloat
the mortgage the loans the credit cards
and keeping up with the Jonesí
the house always needs maintenance
but itís an investment, you see
Iím investing in our future
and I see on TV they are asking for donations
those people in Africa, child exploitation in Asia
youíd think theyíd have enough money by now
they donít realise the pressures weíre under
they donít have a budget to worry about
or SUVís or mobile phones or internet

there never seems to be enough happiness to go around
everyoneís complaining about something or other
the drive to work is stressful
road rage is everywhere
I see on A Current Affair that people are unemployed
and people are hassled
interest rates are going up, housing is hard to find
poverty is increasing
itís terrible to hear
of course, thereís nothing I can do about it
I have a busy life, you know
and we are struggling as it is

we talked about it at prayer meeting
but weíre all in the same boat
how I wish we could find more time, more money
so we could help in some way
but there never seems to be enoughÖ
I guess I could pray for these people

I hope thatís enough

A very convicting piece. Sadly, it is much more true than many Christians would like to admit. Our attitudes DEFINITELY need an adjustment. Thanks for sharing.
