Temporary

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

This whole world is just temporary

Everything is just passing me by

One day you’re here

The next you’re not with me

And all the while I am lost in the temporary

The pressures of this day pretend to thrill me

Another mountain scaled today

And while I’m conq’ring

I am missing

The precious little lives that are right at my feet

Can I get it into my head

Without the pain of death

The only things that matter at all

Are made in the image of you

Given the privlege to do

Life in you

This whole life is just slipping away

Tomorrow is never a guarantee

I can’t hold onto any piece of it

Cause it’s only a shadow – it’s just temporary

Can I get it into my head

Without the pain of death

The only things that matter at all

Are made in the image of you

Given the privlege to do

Life in you

Lord open my eyes

Wider than I thought possible

Help me realize

That our hope is not temporary

That you are not temporary

That I am not tempoary

Pain is just temporary

Our hope is in you

Our hope is in you

Give me hope

Beyond the temporary

Lift my eyes

From this temporary

Today

(the tune and words will be solidified later, but this is what was coming to mind today. my friend joe (who already sounds almost world-famous if your frame of reference is this blog…) lost his sister-in-law (was his wife’s brother’s wife) to cancer yesterday. life must be hard there. it certainly made me appreciate that i got to wake up with my wife today. and made me realize how life is so temporary. thank you jesus for the hope of more.

Concert was good tonight. Lots of people. Believers and non-believers alike… having fun and hopefully experiencing God in a very public community event. Very cool. more later… (probably should check out our main web page for more on that… if I ever get to writing our news page!!! http://www.basicmm.com — http://www.basicmm.com/news
