One of my hobbies is songwriting…I’ve been doing it for the past few years and have written over 40 songs, most of them pretty lame. Anyway, while I was on the theme of faith in God today, it reminded me of one I wrote about two months ago using “Seek Ye First” as the chorus:
You are so worried about your life—
How you can get the things that you want.
First are His kingdom and His righteousness;
Leave all the rest behind;
Leave your desires behind.
Why do you waver in trusting the Lord?
When has He failed to give what you need?
He is your Father, He loves you and knows
How He will show His grace
So you can see His face.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness,
And all these things shall be added unto you.
As we grow older, we see every day
The wisdom of God in all of our pain.
We leave our wisdom, our sorrows behind
So we can find His grace,
Seek Him in all our ways.
Ask, and it shall be given unto you;
Seek, and ye shall find;
Knock, and the door shall be opened unto you.
Yeah, it sounds better when put to music. Not a lot better, mind you.
