Quenched

The world will tell you

To “follow your heart”

and trample God's word

in the name

of humanity and art

But I tell you

as a beggar and sinner

but no longer a slave

that this advice

under God

puts the world

to great shame

The world defines goodness

in beautiful delusions

like a siren taking captive

whoever will listen

leading souls towards wrath

with a seductive song

while God's heart

aches and grieves

each whiplash of wrong

against Him

all are evil

not one of us righteous

We must realize that evil

has many disguises

and it's not how the the devil

would have you define it

To God

wickedness is anything

against his word and his willing

Any time we choose ourselves

over God is sinning

Only in the the light of Jesus

is our darkness revealed

and with this admission

God's goodness, revealed

This freedom from death

is no longer concealed

and I urge you, my friend,

despite your rebellion

it's not too late but it is today

that you can find food

and you can find water

For that unquenchable longing

in the arms of your creator

The Father





He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction. Peter 3:16


"Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life." John 5:24


And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:13
