White Noise

Written by: Evan Perkins

Today we’re caught up in so much noise
We spend so much time on our gadgets or toys
We worry about Facebook, Twitter, and all that’s online
But when it comes to Jesus? Nah we don’t have the time
There are so many things packed into our day
But do we take that precious time to pray?
Now I get it, we all have stuff to do
But Jesus could have been doing other things when he was dying for you
Now we have to spend our time wisely
Cause when I look at my life, it always surprises me
We have school, sports, homework or a job
We think “Ya I can handle this…no prob”
We say we can handle it, but this is just a fake façade
What we should do is cast our anxiety on God
1 Peter 5:7 says he’ll do this cause for you he cares
He constantly pours out his love that he shares
He can make our lives so much less stressful
So to his offer, why are we so resentful?
We should want to cast our anxieties on him
Sometimes, we just don’t know where to begin
Even though God has so many things to do
He’s always there waiting to spend time with you
He’s there to help you, comfort you, or wipe away that tear
He can fix any wound no matter how severe
So let’s slow down and take our foot off the gas
And let’s put our hope in Jesus for it will always last
Some of you might think that God is outdated
Check your glasses cause they’re probably jaded
Unlike our gadgets, he will never go out of style
Whether you know it or not, he’s been around for quite awhile
He’s been here since the beginning, he knows what he’s doing
So he should be the one that we are pursuing
