How do we know if all is right?
A new techy toy can so lure us in,
We must be cautious before we begin.
So many to choose from...IPad, IPhone, IWant!
A brand new upgrade to guardedly flaunt.
Email and texting distracts our clear minds,
We all need a vacation to help us unwind.
Our cell phone stuck to the palm of our hands,
Waiting for another cyber command.
We can map it and follow the quick computation,
Arriving at just the right destination.
Video games give a sense of reward,
Is there nothing else when one is bored?
We live in a life of fantasy fiction,
How can we conquer this appealing addiction?
Win or lose, it is only a game,
Who cares if it clouds our exceptional brain!
We wake every morning conceding to Facebook,
Two hours go by, and we’re already hooked.
The Lord is still waiting to help start our day,
But unending posts grant us free play.
Photos to share, a profile to change;
My legs just went numb…how very strange!
Isn’t it time to give it a rest?
God is still waiting, but does not protest.
To over-indulge in tempting delights,
That captures your days and shortens your nights.
Discern this entrapment whenever you can;
Hold on to God’s wisdom along with His plan.
