Obsessed



Currently, the last thing that the world wants to see
Is some unbalanced acting fanatically
It makes us feel embarrassed or outright scared
To witness a situation where we feel unprepared

But remember when it was you, eager to proclaim
feverishly stirred to tell of salvation in His Name
Stories of deliverance and miracles of Grace
Every waking moment, obsessed with seeking His face

In the days of our youth we were on fire for God
excited to GO! ...before the spouse, kids and job
Then the fire dies out, the passion starts to fade
though we want God to bless all the plans that we've made

We adopt a sort of normalcy and we go with the flow
we don't raise concern by an over-emotional show
we even go to church, hesitant to lift our hands
Are we moved to worship God but scared to offend man?

We learn and we grow, there's nothing wrong with that
but if you were once on fire, why do you now hold back?
As our years tic passed, we attain to more stuff
With our accumulation, when is enough, enough?

I hope we can go back to when God was All in All
When we were enthusiastic about being involved
Crazy things for the Gospel with no sign of retreat
In Him we had our being, in Him we're complete

I hope you see that I'm not saying -"Find a corner and preach"
but there's a world of billions we're compassionately trying to reach
let a desire for His pleasure lead you wherever it may
let the fire of your devotion shine like a sunny day

What a testimony, to your spouse and your kids
Reignite the fire let it burn hotter than it ever did
It's not about easy, but I'm sure you'll be blessed
rather than reminiscing about being obsessed.

Here's The Word:

Romans 12:11 (ESV) Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.

Acts 18:25(a) This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord



In Him,
Cros
