To live fully for The Name

Not so long ago

Words seemed too many and so large

And towns seemed so small

That has all changed since my call.

It’s a different world once you have received a charge.

Today my books are full of words

That help me to understand

Things past and present once distraught

But at the cost of reading in microscopic font.

While striving to live the greatest command.

And the towns which once seemed empty

No places to go hang out

Now seem so full of hurting people and needs

Will I be able to plant enough seeds?

And finally let the good news out.

The world has really not changed much.

It lives for glory, fame, and even wealth.

But my eyes are set upon another place

Where stored up treasure is truly safe,

And my purpose is beyond myself.

I see the world through different eyes

Though physically they are the same

My vision responds to a new paradigm

One which embodies both rhythm and rhyme

And calls me to live fully for The Name.
