Nothing More Important

Nothing More Important

GOD, sometimes we just get so discouraged
confused, and don't know what to do
Our lives are lived at such a hectic pace
that we lose sight of You.
Why in the world do we scurry about
as if constantly in a race?
Why would we constantly choose to keep
up this awful pace?

LORD, You traveled very widely
but always took the time to pray
For You wanted to do the Father's Will
and knew He would show You the way...
That You could be there for others
and do His Will each day
You didn't have to hurry along
for He would show You the way.

LORD, help me to keep my eyes on Thee
each day that is given anew
I want to be productive for You
and stick with You like glue.
I find this world at a frenzied pace
and want to shout, slow down
For at the rate we live this life
we are all going to drown!

Nothing is more important to me
than spending time with You
My heart slows down, I am at peace
and I feel that I'm renewed.
So "Thank You" Heavenly Father
for sharing with me once again
Your wondrous way of living life
I can always begin again!

up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."
Luke 21:28
