While Staying True...

Love is not about staying true to ourselves but to God.
When we stay true to God, we stay true to the person He created us to be!
Doesn't this fill you with peace and relieve us of much needless fretting?!
If we just stay true to ourselves our pride is injured over and over!
If we stay true to God He helps us weather the 'weather' whether we like it or not!

Staying true, (not to ourselves) but to He who made us
Requires dedication as we forge from here to There
So often what we wait for is not what we thought it was
Thus we need more to live for than Time’s Temporary Care

While staying true to principles laid out in The Good Book
We learn that being true to ourselves is not divine
Thus, we should often ponder the Compassion that it took
As He who loves us so, wept ‘Father, not my will but thine”

While staying true to more than ‘points of view’ on that and this
We become more aware of He whose law is peace and love
Then we are not so easily offended by What Is
Knowing The Hope we fix faith on will be more than enough

While staying true to He who loves us all we should be kind
And find ways to forgive above the law of Duty’s Call
For soon the shell that Soul inhabits will be left behind
And we will see why staying true to God was worth it all

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. 
And His commandments are not burdensome,
