Independence

Independence,
What does it mean?
No rules, no laws,
Come and go as you please?

You do life your way
I’ll do it mine.

But is this Independence
Or bondage of it’s own
Making all the decisions
Is it right or wrong?

We don’t have all the answers
Though we act like we do
And Satan keeps on lying
You know what’s best for you.

Man talks about his freedom
But is he really free
Consequences follow choices
That are paid by you and me.

If independence means no boundaries
Then there is no good or bad;
But are God’s rules a burden
Are a tool for man to have?

When a car’s traveling down the highway
That’s when it’s most free,
For when it leaves the roadway
It wrecks and becomes debris.

Adam and Eve found out the hard way
That independence isn’t free
Trading walking with Jesus
For shame is true stupidity.

But if we come to our senses,
Admit we haven’t a clue,
The only choice that matters
Is the one you let God choose.

Independence is not important
It’s what you’re independent of,
And dependence on the Savior
Is true freedom wrapped in love!

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
