Do you feel an “urgency”,
AN “URGENCY” in your life?
Not to be confused with “anxious”,
For that only leads to strife.
The two are incompatible,
Together…they can’t exist;
Still…no matter how hard we try,
“Anxious” will always persist.
Taken full-circle…what is the end,
When “anxious” we indulge?
Why…sin, sickness, and death,
This is what “anxious” will divulge.
Is this what we really want,
“Anxious” we want to be?
I think not…and on this,
I think we all can agree.
So, let’s be “anxious” for nothing,
Give it no place…whatsoever;
Let’s erase it from our lives,
A worthwhile choice…endeavor.
There is however…an “urgency”,
And, that is quite okay;
A desire to accomplish all,
And that…without delay.
The only difference and it’s plain,
Not in our own strength…here;
Bring all things to our Father,
For He is always near.
To our prayers and supplication,
He has an attentive ear;
He wants to be included,
In our hopes, dreams, and in our tears.
Things of “urgency”…His specialty,
The impossible…His best work;
His delight is in our relationship,
He and each one of us…teamwork.
After the “urgency” has passed,
Let’s remember…on bended knee;
To thank Him for His presence,
For all He’s done for you and me.
A thankful heart is all He asks for,
When we know He is our strength;
“Anxious” is far-removed,
“Urgency” takes precedence.
