Evil Days

Doing the important. Keeping priorities. Minding p's and q's. Balance.

Distractions. Laziness. Forgetfulness. Lack of focus.

Pain. Brokenness. Consequence. An enemy.

A single-eye. A devoted heart. Seeking first the kingdom.

Life, full of joys and sorrows, wants and desires, hopes and shattered dreams, can push and pull. But there is a path, a way, that leads to eternity, that leads to purpose and joy, that brings peace and strength. Relationships can be healthy or broken. People make choices; we make choices.

"Lord, be the strength of my heart. Be my source of grace to do what I need to do. I want to build, not tear down. I want to choose the way of life, not death. I want to redeem the time for the days are evil. The days are surely evil. And I want to serve an eternal God of Love. I want to live for Jesus only. Amen."
