Through The Eye of a Needle

Living a life
That seems so smart
but not giving the Lord
All of our heart.

With something lacking
And not at our max
Since trusting in ourselves
But with God very lax.

Trying to earn our way
Only with upheaval
Like the camel through
The eye of a needle.

But we can surrender
It all for the cause
Instead of following
The impossible laws.

Choose the only ONE
Who is in control
For Jesus is the ONE
Who saves our soul!

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God – Matthew 19:24

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    This poem is inspired from a recent sermon at the church I worship at. In Matthew 19:16-21, the rich young man is told by Jesus that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. For rich and poor, what is impossible for us is possible with God. By surrendering to Jesus, we are free and no longer slave to the things of this world that try to control our soul.
