Who can say this song does not apply to themselves?
I doubt but maybe a few who are not in some way reaching for the worldly things they see. Maybe a monk on a mountain with no contact with anyone…at all and no electronics whatsoever.
But for most of us it a daily struggle between trying to please God and denying ourselves.
I’m one of those weird guys who does not want a lot of things. A modest house, a car, someone to love me and a job that allows for needs to be met. I don’t care about the newest gadget, car, boat, gun, etc.
At moment I am blessed with a house and a job. The other two are in God’s hands at moment.
But, one thing I have noticed since rededicating my life to the Lord is that the more I seek His holiness the less I worry about the other stuff.
But I do still seek the worldly things.
I still seek the approval of man…we all do to an extent.
I do want a house that is not falling apart at the seams. But to move requires transportation not only to move but to be able to come see the kids every night.
Heck, I want a DVD player that doesn’t skip!
The desire to be with Angie will always be present.
So see I have the worldly desires but…
The better part of me is actually Him shining through helping me walk in integrity with a humble heart.
May we all seek the better part of ourselves…the Lord!
