I hear you say, "I need that car-
look, shiny paint and chrome!"
But listen up you foolish one,
it's breaking up your home.
Your spouse is mad, your children cry,
your bills are piled high.
It's envy, greed- not self-control.
It's all a sinful lie.
Trust in anything will wither,
no matter how it shines.
Time rots and rusts our newest wants,
can you not see the signs?
So turn your head, and turn your mind,
away from all that flaunts-
and set your eyes on God above.
Ignore all other wants.
Now should you hold back hope in Him,
a quarter or an eighth?
No, put ALL trust in God above,
oh, ye of little faith!
The armor from our God above,
shall never rust or dent-
by faith in God who meets our needs,
one hundred full percent.
