Seek the Lord and Live

To so many, life is such a chore and a hassle;
Problems abound and the future looks terrible.
The heart sinks in despair for hope is not in sight;
But the Lord gives a word that should bring delight!

“Seek the Lord and live”- what a blessed message!
There is much more to life than we envisage.
God is able to help us face the challenges of life;
He is able to empower us to rise above all strife!

The heart must seek the Lord with true sincerity;
God would be found by all who seek Him genuinely.
He does not delight in seeing people falter and fail,
He will teach us how to make our faith prevail.

Blessed are those who find the Lord real and dear;
They pray and find that the Lord is indeed near!
The heart finds new hope and joy soon abounds;
God in all His love and power will surround!
