Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavour;
be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.

Beyond Mere Existence

Why does it seem so easy
To slowly grow so cold,
To lose that fire we once had known
That burned within our souls?

We start to lose the joy
And life becomes a bore,
We just live from day to day
With no hope in the Lord

We give up on the dreams,
We once had in our hearts,
We settle down to mere existence
Alone within the dark

Oh God our spirits yearn
To know you so much more,
We don't want to just exist
But know you as before

To feel your presence in our lives
And a new song on our lips,
To walk in victory every day,
O Lord, we long for this

Come, O God, and touch us
Ignite us once again,
So we will burn with holy zeal,
More than we had back then

Fill us with your spirit, Lord,
And we shall be renewed,
So joy can be restored to us
With brand-new hope in you.

If you feel God tugging on your heart and want to rededicate your life to Him, here is a prayer you may like to pray:

Dear God, I'm so sorry for wondering away from you. I want to come back to you, so I give my heart to you and ask that you forgive me and cleanse me from all my sins. I thank you for your mercy and saving grace and I receive Jesus into my heart. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit and help me walk everyday with you. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen
