Your Spirit Lives

by louis gander © 2022

So you have problems you can't fix and no one seems to listen.
You can't fight back. Things will not change and you're in bad position.
So where is God to fix these things that put you on your knees?
Just where is this amazing God who calmed the stormy seas?

This earth is not like Heaven, for Heaven's free of sin.
No matter how we live our lives, our problem's deep within.
Our likes, our wants, our needs and cravings put us in this fix.
No matter what our burdens are, they're like ton of bricks.

My body's having problems but I live within the Spirit
I stamp my feet and clap my hands and let the world hear it.
The body dies. I can't live there and that I must accept.
I live a life within God's will and that is where I'm kept.

You cannot see the Spirit realm unless your eyes are closed.
You ears can't hear His still, small voice unless they're predisposed.
Do not seek God with earthly thoughts that tear you all apart.
If honestly you speak to Him, you'll find Him in your heart.

So close your eyes and see God's light and hear His still, small voice.
Then shut your ears to earthly sounds for that must be your choice.
Our spirit lives in Heaven's realm where beauty is most stunning -
where struggles end with peace within and everybody's loving.
