The Meaning Of Life

November 8, 2006

If you’ve never asked the question
Who or when or why or how
Give your mind that great suggestion
Go ahead and do it now

You will find when you consider
All the options that abound
There is still but one conclusion
Where peace of mind is found

It not in education
In religion of in books
In retirement funds and IRAs
Or how the market looks

It’s not in status or in style
How low in golf you score
It’s not the running of a mile
Or who you’re working for

It’s not the price you pay for things
It’s not the jewels and fancy rings
It’s not the checks and credit cards
Secured by all those guns and guards

It’s not the beauty of your face
It’s not a matter of your race
It’s not the muscle on your bones
Your classy looks or great skin tones

What matter most in life today
Is where you stand along the way
Not what you have, but what you are
How faith in God succeeds by far

God is the answer to the question
Of the who, when, why or how
And he gives the invitation
Trust in me and do it now

You’ll find God meets your deepest need
With His kind words your soul he’ll feed
He guide your steps and make things right
He’ll turn darkness into light.
