A More Convenient Season

March 26, 2013

A Quest For Truth

My life is good from day to day
Everything appears to be going my way.
So, I have not a need for Christianity
I might call on God, but only in tragedy.

But what if that tragedy is my own?
A more convenient season has come and gone.
My opportunity then dies with my pride
And my salvation… forever denied.

What kind of message does that give His death –
The Lamb who was slaughtered, so I might live?
It is MY iniquity that stole His life…
His very last breath, as He hung there denied.

If I won’t share His crown of thorns
Until I kneel before His throne,
Then Satan wins all of these years and
my soul for eternity… this I should fear.

In a more convenient season…
Maybe I will answer His call.
Either I will die with Him, or in spite of Him
With free will I must choose, if I rise, or if I fall.

    Like your poem, hope you choose well, don’t wait too long. We never know when our soul will be called. Only God knows our life span. God bless, keep up the good work it is enjoyed and appreciated.
