Pleasing to God

From Proverbs 13:7:  “Some pretend to be rich, yet have nothing; others pretend to be poor, yet have great wealth.”

Living a life, pleasing only to self

Ignoring God, leaving Him on a shelf


Competitive world, craving ambition

Pleasing to God, never this life’s mission


High expectations, demanding more time

Living the dream, seeking ladders to climb


Mankind commands, chasing full-time career

Pleasing to God, never happens this year


Targets set higher, with each passing week

Hustling to scale, another highest peak


Life fills with emptiness, something amiss

Pleasing to God, change focus . . . lasting bliss


God lights the way, spiritual journey

Coming to Him, forgo the attorney


Heart and mind, accept Father’s deepest love

Pleasing to God, eyes now find Him above


Daily meditation, filled with God’s Word

Rejoicing in His truth, no longer blurred


Priorities flip, following the Lord’s light

Pleasing to God, faithful voyage takes flight

From Ephesians 5:8-10:  “For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light–for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true.  Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord.”
