Confrontation is Kind, Not Cruel

Confrontation is not cruel, but kind
Otherwise you will remain pitifully blind
Blind to your own foolishness and deception
Blind to your own agenda and motivation
Blind to your people skills and offenses caused
Blind to your self-absorbed nature and flaws
Blindness is not a desirable trait, nor is it great
Therefore when someone lovingly gets in your face
Don’t get your back and dander up, nor be an ingrate
Because they’re helping you to improve your state
To reverse the deadly curse and bless your life’s fate
Otherwise you will blindly carry on until it’s too late
Only to awake one day alone with no love in your home
No money in your bank account and no goodness in life
Therefore when confrontation comes receive it humbly
Before getting angry and allowing it to produce strife
Let confrontation for righteousness sake make you great.

Seasons of Suffering

Seasons of suffering

Dear God, will they ever end?

Seasons of suffering

Bringing me to my wits end

Seasons of suffering

Teaching me heartfelt obedience

To live in the realm of the Spirit

Seasons of suffering

Until I embrace and hear it

God Almighty come and stop it!

Seasons of suffering

Grinding down my motives

Seasons of suffering

Persistent like a locomotive

Seasons of suffering

Continually coming

Although I be running

Sometimes in anger cursing

Always hating and resisting

Such perilous times and measures

Yet within my heart is a treasure

A far greater weight of God’s glory

Therefore He applies divine pressure

To change my wayward character

To rewrite my pitiful life story

To add integrity when I don’t care

To give me peace deep within

When I want to pull out my hair

To calm my nerves, silence the storms

Help a heart that is worn and forlorn

To uplift my spirit when I feel like a worm

To encourage my heart when I wish to depart

To comfort my soul and make me whole

To restore to me what the devil has stole

Seasons of suffering not always as they seem

For in actuality God is good when He seems mean

Nevertheless when you learn the life lessons

He’s endeavoring to instruct and teach

In the end you shall rejoice and be complete.

Therefore surrender to your heavenly Father

Your distant heart, dirty hands, and frail feet.
