it's not that complicated

i don't mean to beat a dead horse,
(which, by the way, is a weird idium)
but i can't get over this article.

where have we gone wrong, american church?
where did we begin to read into scirpture more than need be?
when did we stop trusting our Creator?

i used to be so eager to go,
to participate in the task that the Lord has entrusted us with.

but over the past few months, i forgotten this longing
and have ignored the blatant call of Jesus to go.

forgive me, Most High, for forgetting Your call.
forgive me for allowing this world and its desires 
to sway and distract me.
forgive me for forgetting the lost that surround me.
give me eager hands and feet once again,
renew this sense of purpose and urgency, Gracious Lord.
