Lasting Changes

Based in part on Hebrews 12:1:

Tramore Inn - Not A Whole Lot That I Would Change

Lasting Changes
by Michael Romani

Lasting change can be elusive
Burdens are felt so intrusive
It seems that in our gut
We get stuck in a rut

It's a fatalistic mentality
That feeds our mortality
We need to hang on in belief
And we'll find our relief

Sometimes we have no choice
To keep within our servant's voice
So we then need to fake it
Until back on our feet, we make it

Morning by morning, we see
The faithfulness of His mercy
Pressing on as best we can
Despite the unworthiness of being man

Life offers its hard resistance
To be faced in our persistence
Pressing on in our every day
Moving forward in every way

Not giving up is often the key
To becoming our best we
In so doing, we find victory
Already won for you and me

Step by step as long as forward
Is what it takes to move toward
The righteous goals we keep
Paying the price however steep

Pick yourself up and stand tall
Dusting off without recall
Of anything but the goal
This is the path to our best souls

Without intentional sanctimony
Life is its own living testimony
We push on as we drive on
Never allowing faith to be gone

Putting away the ole song and dance
Taking responsibility for our chance
Put forth the effort that is needed
Doing all things through Christ heeded
