A Poem of Thought

 Rescue me from me, so I might serve Thee


As to this world how big my eyes do see
Trying not let it penetrate my heart
Rescue me from me, so I might serve thee

Just because everyone does to it agree
In partaking, thinking it makes one smart
As to this world how big my eyes do see

I pray for strength from thee down on my knee
In hope the temptation soon does depart
Rescue me from me, so I might serve thee

The wonderment does cast me to a degree
Thou, my faith is strong never to depart
As in this world how big my eyes do see

As I pray I ask His help in a plea
To keep my soul safe, from this world apart
Rescue me from me, so I might serve thee

Thou here I be, I was yours from the start
Lord I pray, my being yours to impart
As in this world how big my eyes do see
Rescue me from me, so I might serve thee

Thoughts: As Christians in this world it can sometimes be hard to stay devoted to the Lord God. Even harder when the Lord has made it crystal clear to you something you do not need to partake in when it seems everyone in the world is doing it. It may not even be a bad thing for other people, and may even be a good thing for Christianity world wide; just a bad thing for your being or of no importance to you in keeping your soul precious to the Lord. And, in staying on course and devoted to Him in what your future holds from Him. Just because-per say-everyone is partaking in Social Media continuously, does that make it okay for your well-being? Sometimes not! The point is, just because everyone is doing something does not mean it's okay for everyone. The key is to understand this and to protect your heart and soul in this world when your eyes get big for what you see other's partaking in. Knowing this I get down on my knee in prayer and ask the Lord, Please, rescue me from me, so I might serve thee.
