Musical Chairs

Remember kid’s parties and musical chairs?
Circling about til just one seat is there.
The excitement and fun as the music begins
And the last person seated is the person who wins.

Now imagine your life as an ongoing song
Through starts and stops we struggle along.
There’s only one chair and it’s your choice to say
Who will be seated and who’s kept away.

Here YOU pick the winner and who plays the part
Of who’s in control, for THIS chair is your heart.
By nature, we’re enticed by objects of pleasure
Forgetting our affinity to exalt them as treasure.

Depending on the nature of the childhood we’ve had
The treasure seated first, is our mom or our dad.
But if all goes well, they’ll introduce us to Christ
We may wait to commit, but the direction is right.

That’s no longer the norm as such horrors are faced
by children who are traumatized, their innocence erased
And this has the effect of distorting their view
Of who should be seated, “Now what do we do?”

But later in life, we lean to our “OWN” mind
And the treasures we seat become whatever we find.
Things that make us feel safe, or celebrities we “love”
These icons and idols are not from above.

We must surely be careful with treasures of this world
For you girls it’s some guy, and for guys it’s some girl.
Or it’s either your job or the money you make
You must keep in mind that your soul is at stake.

We honor our efforts and laud our own strength
Dismissing the mission, we seek to be content.
And even our religion can wear a sinister mask
Because we seat our own piety, too blinded to ask.

So as the music keeps playing, keep checking the chair
God is not honored unless He’s seated there.
Sadly, worldly success may come as you reach for the top
But who will be seated when the music finally does stop?

Here’s The Word:

Deuteronomy 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;

Proverbs 10:2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

In Him,
