I Am Accountable

By no means do I worry anymore.
I used to until I figured out what for.

I rushed around fast as I could
for much too long.
Never reading the Holy Bible, it could
have told me I was doing wrong.

I had not a moment to devot to reading
any of the Holy Scriptuers.
I never looked at a sunset, listened to
birds sing or admire family pictures.

I was definitely playing with my life,
out in left field some place.
That kind of living left me not knowing
God--I was caught up in a rat race!

God had been trying to get my attention
for a long, long time.
I found myself down and out, I lost all
of my possessions and most of my mind!

But now, I read Scripture every day of my
life, I found love and peace in the Holy Bible.
The Holy Spirit is in me, I stand strong and
for my actions--I am accountable!!
