Seeking the Favor of God

In days of old, God sought out after even one righteous man.  He found him in Noah.  The following is based in part on Genesis 6:5-7:

The World's End Cafe - A Walk Into Time II

Seeking the Favor of God
by Michael Romani

In the fabled days of antiquity
The world became one with iniquity
A loveless world hard to embrace
God searched after one faithful face

All seeing; never able to be blind
God regretted creating mankind
Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord
In so doing, he became salvation's sword

The lesson to be drawn isn't so odd
But that we should walk in the favor of God
Avoiding the certain destruction of our tomorrow
By making our ways pleasing not those of sorrow

We must seek to heal and not to add injury
Living life's of joy spent in His divine energy
Acceptance and support should be our intention
These are what bring the Lord's eternal provision

God's presence in our lives burns holy fire
That guides us to our every righteous desire
Bringing the best that might truly inspire
The absent of this is perhaps equally dire

The Lord's love is necessary to save us from sin
Poured out on each of us as needed again and again
There are consequences in choices in our life style
That can be questionable and result in our denial

We can check this by what other might deduct
From the witness of our character and our conduct
Watching carefully the words chosen in conversation
And how these match an outsider's observation

All of these things hold their particular relevance
As evidence for the loving touch of divine providence
And where these things seem to be a bit amiss
It is wise for God's children to pay attention to this

God has gifted us all with the ability to truly listen
Not just hearing but yearning to be truly blessed then
In taking in the lessons that we each need to hear
And from these knowing and growing as we persevere
