In school, we face demands and rules –
But we make the decision to obey.
At work, we face pressure and major deadlines –
Yet we don’t quit but hang in there and stay.
In marriages and relationships, we complain and grieve –
But we push to make things right each and every day.
In our everyday lives, we make mistake after mistake-
Yet we cover them up and pretend everything is okay.
We can persevere in these areas of our lives –
But when it comes to the Lord, why do we stray?
Written By S. L.M.
Isaiah 53:6 “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
