The Time Has Not Come...

The time has not come
for the House to be built
as we focus on our needs
to cover our guilt

We eat, drink, and squander
and spend more than we earn
and live in glass houses
to prove we don't learn

As if nothing  else matters
we mourn petty losses
although we've neglected
the exorbitant cost

For we've lost all the glory
the Love we once made
then remembered we need it
even though it's too late

But the Spirit remains
although we're not ready
but with shaking and chaos
in time we'll be steady

The blessing will come
birthed in time-tested hearts
when we consider foundations
we've been chosen to start

(inspired by Haggai)
