Running from You

Why do we so love earthly pleasures
Why do we so easily give up our portion received from You
We run after quick fixes
We love writing new truths

Why is it so difficult for us to pursue You
Why is it so hard to only believe Your Truth
Why do we keep on adding, changing
Watering down Your Word

Can we see, will we understand
Living out our fleshly desires
Running after worldly pleasures
Drains and destroys all the fullness found in You

By running from You
We are running from Life
Straight into death
O Lord please help us to start seeing You!
