What are you scared of?

  We as Christians have all passed on the opportunity to help someone else. We tell ourselves things like "someone else will do it", "I don't have the time to help", "if I give that guy money he will buy beer with it".
My personal favorite and probably the most used phrase among Christians has got to be "I will pray for you". I am not saying prayer is not effective, quite the opposite. But prayer should be used in combination with good works. The man on the street does not need your prayer so you feel better about his situation, he needs shelter, he needs basic human understanding. Most of us are a paycheck away from being in his situation anyway.
Imagine yourself out there homeless. What is it you would need first? What would be your first move to get yourself and maybe your family off the streets? Would it be prayer? I will tell you this - prayer without action will result in your death. I have a saying I frequently use: God feeds the birds, but he doesn't put the food in the nest. They have to go get it.
Sometimes God tells us to be still while he works. Obviously hearing the voice of God is an attention-grabber, and what you are told to do should be done. But to pray and then lay down and die is against God.

From Gods mouth to your ears

A few weeks ago, God inspired me to write a song. The song is from God to us. I would like to know what you think. I am still trying to put it to music.

I sent the word
you refuse to read
you rather smoke weed
you cant plant a seed

I said spare the rod
spoil the child
and still you run around
like girls gone wild

I have shown you that
you are saved
but you cast your
lot among the depraved

hanging with friends
who don't serve me
after i sent my Son
so you would see
walkin that fence
tryin to avoid disaster
but i told you before
you cant serve two masters

when will you turn
from your fleshly ways
cause tomorrow can wait
but not today

all your life its
sin you ate and
judgment day is
one day too late

in the enemy's rubble
is where you live
I can dig you out
and I can forgive

you turn a blind eye
to the broken and meek
and you come to me
one day a week

what about the other
six that I made?
for you reap what you sow
you've already been paid

you don't like to hear
when you're wrong
so I had to write it
in a song

you're supposed to live
your life by my commands
and when you pray
it's all demands

come to me
with all your heart
I've been reaching out
you gotta do your part

you're walking around
like you have the light
but I know your heart
and it's dark as night

so come to me
repent, and pray
'cause there is no time
not like today
