Every second

I survive

Is a second

I should strive

To be loving.

Every minute

That I live

Is a minute

I should give

To Your glory.

Every day

That I'm here

Is a day

You hold dear

For Your work.

Every week

On this Earth

Is a week

That I hurt

From this sin.

Every month

Before I die

Is a month

I should try

To follow You.

Every year

It gets harder

To do

All You say

Since I'm "wrong."

This world

Thinks I'm crazy

Old fashioned,

Heartless, and lazy.

Are they right?

I then

Realize that Satan

Tries to make me

Think I'm hating

All that's good.

When in fact

My anger's pointed

At the sin

People commit,

NOT the people.

For God said,

"Love your neighbor"

Not "Love the sin

That overtakes her"

So I don't.

Instead

I stand beside her

In case

She tries to find love

In Jesus.

Every second

I survive

Is a second

I should strive

To be loving.

Every minute

That I live

Is a minute

I should give

To Your glory.

But it's hard.
