Something novel, Something new,
Something always distracting you.

Satan always stirs the fire,
Trying to control your heart's desire.

He can never satisfy,
All his ploys are but a lie!

Temporary pleasure you may find,
But in the end, sin will leave you blind.

Only God can set you free,
And satisfy for eternity.

He longs to give joy and peace to you,
And prove that His promises are true.

If you turn to Him in times of trial,
You'll see He's been there all the while.

When times are hard He gives abundant grace,
To those who come and seek His face.

Seek Him first and his righteousness,
Then you will see His great faithfulness.

~ Lloyd & Bethany Estep

Amen! If only people would realise this before much time is wasted or it's too late!

May your children seek the Lord from their youth and redeem the time.
