Simpler Life

I’ve tried real hard 

throughout my life

To be a step ahead

The hurry and the scurry 

always kept my

Wondering

What if I resist

The urge

To keep up with the Joneses 

And I just lived

A simpler life

With Christ
What I found 

When I slowed down 

Was peace

And joy

I’d never known

I found contentment 

Even in hard times

Because I knew

He was there

What a find

What a privilege 

To have Him

There
Now I do my best

To resist 

The call of the world 

And respond to

The call of

Christ

In response to the daily prompt Resist
