TITLE: My Hero

I am sickened and disheartened by the world in which I live
I see things going on that make me ill
I want to scream to the mountains
I want to shout to the skies
Lord, please come today, this world is not mine

I see a person ruining their marriage
Taking part in an affair
That will only bring havoc
His wifeís, his familyís, this way

I see the other woman thinking sheís so slick
Whiling him away
While he seems to forget
The vows that he made
The ties that bind
The children he has
The wife whom he now denies

I see the work environment
Where it has become dog eat dog
I watch people joyous
Over another oneís loss
I see the plotting, the scheming, the conniving
And I think to myself
Is this all worth dying
Leaving behind the face of the Lord
Who has been with us this day and every day forward

He brought us up not to be this way
I see Jesusí face
I say Lord Iím sorry for all Iíve done wrong forgive me
Before I found you,
I too was one

Through your miraculous grace and glory
I know now that it is all phony
It is Satanís to rule
I am only here
For a short time still

Praise be to Jehovah, Yahweh, Adonai
That he delivered me from sin
That I would not die
In the fiery pits of hell
Running a race
I cannot win
Without seeing his face
On that cross that day
Where he did die, my hero
My all, my Adonai!

Well done.

I like this article. I too feel this way, that the things in this world are not what they should be. This very touching.

During the 12 years I was a pastor, the most common lie told me was, "I do."

Even though I didn't see the connection with the title, "My Hero", you are absolutely dead-on in your accessment.

Good grief, why on earth do you want to bail out of here and leave the earth for the devil? Man, that's just what Satan wants...for the Church to get out of here. The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof...add into the mix that the meek shall inherit the earth, and it puzzles me why you are so willing to abandon God's creation to a usurper.

The church is supposed to be a light in a dark place...you don't see a light begging to be brought back into the "big light" because the darkness sucks.

The purpose of the light is to shine! And the greater the darkness, the more brilliantly a small light will shine. You strike a match in a bright room, and no one will notice...strike a match in a dark room, and watch every eye instantly look toward the light.

>>I know now that it is all phony

Man, what a crazy attitude that is. Kind of defeatist, if you ask me. Our God is greater than that. His plan doesn't involve a retreat, but rather a crushing of the enemy. I understand wanting to go be with God...but all in good time, you know? I mean, there's work to do first.
