WHY THE RUSH?

 
Assembly of Firstborn, University of Ibadan, Nigeria)

 
Why rush away from His presence
When is yet to finish with you
Why rush away from His presence
When what you think is out there is right here with Him
 
Why rush away from His feet
When He has so much to tell you
Why rush away from His feet
When right at His feet is mercy and hope
 
Why rush away from Him to seek solution elsewhere
When He has said He would do it
Why rush away from His to seek help from the outside
When He will give freely and in fullness
 
Why the complaints
When He said be patient for some time
Why rush to love the world and its pleasure
When He’s madly in love with you
 
Why the rush,
Take your time
And be cooled with Christ.
