TITLE: The Life Games

This is just a fun poem I wrote one day. I thought it turned out kind of cute and would maybe work well to share with a youth group. Let me know what you think! Thanks.
You can run but you canít hide
and if youíll just give God a chance youíll be delighted to find;
Heís everything you didnít realize you were looking for
and if you play by His rules life will be so much more.
When you play by His rules,
Life becomes a game you cannot lose.
So come on out, stop playing peek-a-boo.
Come on out, donít you know God already sees you?

You can run but you canít hide
from the only God who sees inside of you.
You try to sneak off into the dark,
thinking youíre out of His sight,
but the darkness is no obstacle to the God of everlasting light!
Thereís no where to go where you His eyes canít find.
You canít even escape inside your own mind.
I donít know about you,
but I really think itís time.

Itís time to stop playing hide and seek.
Itís time to come into His light and fall to your knees.
Give your life to the One who died for your sins.
Stop hiding in the shadows and let your real life begin.
So come out, come out wherever you are
and meet the God who wants to heal your broken heart.

If your life feels like a game of Aggravation
and you seem to be caught in endless frustration;
if your life feels like the game of Trouble
and you feel like the die, stuck in a bubble
and out of control-not knowing whatís going to happen next;
or if you feel like your life is a card game
and youíre missing half the deck: come.
Lay aside your unbelief and pride.
You donít need to run and thereís no reason to hide!

You donít need to be afraid because with God The Price Is always Right.
How can you turn Him down when the prize is everlasting life?
Come on now, you know itís time to make a change.
Itís time for your game pieces to be rearranged.
Jesus is the only one youíll ever need,
you see, for in the business of saving lives,
He has the Monopoly.

On your own this game of Life you simply canít win.
So why not admit your sin and give your life to Him?
Take a Risk and call out to Godís only Son.
Heís already paid your price and this game of Life Heís already won!
Itís time you get a Clue
and hand over your life to the only one who died for you.

If youíre tired of trying to play the game of Life on your own,
just come with me to His holy throne.
You donít have to be alone in this Life game,
just lift up your hands and call upon His holy name.
Believe in the Son of God and Heíll help you win this game of Life.
Believe in Him and hand over your life to the Savior, Jesus Christ!
Heís just a prayer away
and Heís waiting for you to hand Him the dice
so don't delay.

Come to the One who laid down His life to take away your sins.
Come to the only One who died and three days later rose to life again.
Come into His light and let your real life begin.
So come out, come out wherever you are
and meet the God who will heal your broken heart.
