Perhaps that is because it never really was.
But, rather, "it" was something else, all along.

Pure Useless

When I forget to put my armor on
To run the race before me,
To be prepared for all that comes,
Naked for the world to see,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that the battle I'm fighting
Was won by The Lord,
Not man,
Nor man's sword,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that the weapon of God,
To fight the enemy,
Was every Word that came from Him
And not a word from me,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that His yoke is easy
And how His burden is light,
That He is where I find my peace,
Cause I am precious in His sight,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget to shake the dust
Of the wicked from each sandal,
To realize when my job is done,
That I won't get more than I can handle,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget when troubles
Are with another bound for heaven,
That I am to do as Jesus commands
And forgive seventy times seven,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that Satan
Sends many to stumble me,
And that God will use their fiery darts
To make a pearl for all of them to see,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget to love those who hate me
And spitefully use me for their gain,
To say kind and loving words to them,
And turn to God to ease my pain,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget what's done in secret
Will one day be revealed,
That no weapon formed against me will prosper,
That the fate of the father of liars is sealed,
Then I am  pure useless.

When I forget that God has
Sent me out as a sheep among the wolves,
To be wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove,
And that I'm always to do good,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that the gospel is offensive
To those souls who are perishing,
To not cast my pearls before the swine,
Nor give to dogs, that which is holy and to me, cherishing,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget to be swift to hear,
Slow to speak, and slow to wrath,
That speaking quickly words of anger
Leaves me in shame of the aftermath,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget to fret-not over evildoers,
To not be envious against workers of iniquity,
To trust in the Lord and to do good,
Knowing He will bring it all to pass for me,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that those who reject Christ
Do so willingly,
That in the dark they choose to hide,
To continue in their iniquity,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that I am not of this world
But a foreigner, who'll never fit in,
That I am salt to the world,
And it only takes a smidgen,
Then I am pure useless.

When I forget that I am a princess,
A Child of the very most High,
A pearl in the making, cleansed by the blood,
And that on wings of an eagle, I can fly,
Then I am pure useless.

Wait On The Lord
He will bring it all to pass.

Sometimes life just hurts. Sometimes there is no right answer.
Sometimes we simply have to move and trust the Lord.

Sometimes nothing makes sense.

Sometimes I cry. Sometimes love does not just fix things.
Sometimes things just are what they are.

Sometimes I lift my hands and cry to God, to heal my heart.

Amen.

The Depth of a Soul

Can anyone measure the depth of a soul,
How far down one's trueness can go?
If man were to seek, could he ever find this,
The bottom, the end all,
the depth of a soul?

It's where one holds the happy, the sad,
The place where all the emotions are sent,
The laughter, the smiles,
the good, and the bad,
The love and all the contempt.

Would we dare, if we could,
Open up and let known,
All the trueness of who we are?
Would we dare, if we could,
Let our feelings be shown,
Knowing how easily we scar?

O, the depth of our souls, we can hide,
Knowing that no one can measure,
All the truth of our person deep down inside,
All our secrets and all that we treasure.
