How Much


Kristine Cucinotta Murphy

How much discomfort can you bear
Before you lose sight and just don’t care
How much pain does it take
Before you decide to break
How much of someone’s ways
Keeps you from giving God praise
How much does someone have to push you
Before you waiver and move
How much can you truly take
Before trying to escape from suffering for his namesake
Are there valid excuses to faint
Who is to blame to no longer live like a saint
What keeps you from being rooted deep
What makes you so mad you no longer weep
How soon do you take your eyes off of Jesus
What trips you up to scream and cuss
What stops you from asking God to search you
To know your heart and all you do
What’s that one thing you’ve been keeping a secret
What sets you off to throw a tantrum fit
What have you yet to confess
That keeps you from making progress
You dont have to tell me
But, think on what blocks you from the Almighty
What distracts you from being intimate with the LORD
What keeps you from devouring God’s Word
How much longer before Christ’s return
Will you be found guiltless or will you burn
What’s that one thing nagging on your mind
Keeping you from repenting and always in a bind
Is your conscience clear this hour
How much longer before God’s mercy will expire
Are you willing to take such a risk tonight
Or are you willing to be shown under the spotlight
I don’t know what you do that God calls sin
But, I do know time is running thin
We are in the last days, this I am sure of
God’s Word said and he sent a ransom out of love
Are you going to deny such a beautiful gift
Because within yourself you allow pride to lift
There are three that God did categorize
Pride of life, lust of the flesh and lust of the eyes
Which one do you fall under that will cause God’s wrath to fall
Does God even know you, I mean really know you at all
How much time do you give him one on one
Sometimes, maybe none
Is there enough time left, none of us know the hour or the day
But, you better be alert and ready
Because God isn’t going to stop his wrath
Better be walking on that straight and narrow path
And if you believe you do enough, there’s always more you can do
To spend quality time with God so He keeps you
Do you believe you have a good enough reason
To not be sentenced by God’s judgement of treason

Matthew 7:21-23
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
