FULFILLMENT, LOVE, PURPOSE & JOY
A wise man gives up what he can't keep
To gain what he cannot lose.
Through life we make our judgments
Praying for the right path to choose.
Believers feel God is a footstep away
With His love, forgiveness and power.
All we have to do is observe His word
And by divine intervention we flower.
Never be afraid to pray humbly to God
For His light to shine from your face.
The more we surrender and obey His will
The more we facilitate His Grace.
Life without faith, deliverance and love
Becomes a selfish person's hell.
By severing our Lord without question
We stay happier, productive, and well.
The Lord is aware of all we commit
Our secrets, joys, evils and fears.
Loving us despite our repeated mistakes
And even more, when we cry out in tears.
When the voice of wisdom cries out
The grace of God is never-ending.
Search for those who highlight the worthy
And shun what is selfish and condescending.
Wisdom is better than the touch of woman
Rubies, silver or kingdoms of gold.
Blessed are those who follow God's path
Without fear of their deeds being told.
Man's fear of death sustains his repentance
As God's seed of Goodness stirs within.
When sinners entice you, refuse consent
For the shameless shall suffer without end.
When the gift of wisdom glorifies your heart
And the harmony of knowledge is pleasant to your soul.
You will be delivered from the deeds of ignorance
As the numbers of the wicked register their toll.
God's wisdom is inspiration of spirit
In every thing we consume and employ.
Knowledge is mankind's only hope
Of fulfillment, love, purpose and joy.
