The Joy In My Soul

I want to matter;
I want to stay relevant.
I keep on talking,
I keep on…

I’m running out of days.
I’m a shooting star,
I’m fading fast,
I can’t stop…

Generations come
and generations go.

How do I make an impact?
How do I keep on living?
Only through you
my eternal child.

Commentary: The crisis in the world today is that instead of embracing a new spiritual life, like we were designed to do, people are trying to get as much pleasure out of an aging physical body, for as long as they can. Subsequently egotistical adults refuse to grow up. It it true that people without convictions are prone to depression when they become aged and sickly. However that is no excuse for the obsession with “trying to remain forever young”; this preoccupation of “not wanting to become old” was never supposed to hijack our eternal purposes. That’s why our Creator in His Infinite Wisdom designed us to age gradually so that we could transition into spiritual mature beings gracefully.

“Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things and center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart.” Bible, Philippians 4:8

“Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” By: C.S. Lewis
