For The Life of Me!

Lord,
for the life of me,
please do tell me,
exactly what is going on?

Lord,
for the life of me,
please do tell me,
exactly where we’re headed?

In my daily struggle to survive,
to get ahead, to harvest the fruits of my labour,
I find so much sadness, and so many obstacles,
not at all in accord with that legacy which You left us then...

When...
devotions ran high, and aspirations even higher,
when...
sacrifices were said made for future generations,
like myself, like he, like she, like for humanity.

Lord,
for the life of me,
please do tell me,
how best may I serve thee?

Lord,
for the life of me,
please do tell me,
how best may I honour thee?

When...
dignity has become imposed rather than innate,
when...
our values have become measured not by self but by others.

Lord,
for the life of me,
please do tell me,
when shall our world finally be ruled by the Spirit?

Lord,
for the life of me,
please do tell me,
when shall true love, peace, compassion and justice finally reign?
