Life is filled with so much death.
God giveth and taketh away His breath.
So much joy, so much sorrow…
Yesterday always steals tomorrow.
Testimonies are made and broken.
Days are numbered, blessed, and stolen.
We cannot change what God decides.
We must step forward. We cannot hide.
Just like Adam, He calls our name
And takes no excuse for our blame game.
Consequences come from our actions.
Faithfulness comes from our passion.
Ready or not to believe, we must give.
In the end, He decides where we live.
He does not need nor ask permission.
He deserves and expects our complete submission.
We must not think too long or hard.
Death will come near or far.
