The Lost Bride
O my dear young bride,
Why did you leave me for other lovers?
Why did you chase over those who praise you on the surface?
Who only give you false and imperfect love?
O my lovely bride,
Why did you lower yourself just to chase temporary pleasure?
Their love like smoke that remain for a while and
will disappear right away as the first wind blows...
O my beautiful bride,
Can't you realise that they will crush you in the end?
Cant's you see that they will leave you soon after they use you?
They will trap you with money, power, prestige, knowledge, and sex
You are so lost and so drunk in their promises that you forget about Me
Not knowing that leaving Me will lead you to death
Come back to me, My bride!
For I am Your one and only Husband
Come back to me My bride,
For I am the Only One who can satisfy you
Can't you feel My love when
I touchy with the tenderness of the sunshine?
Can't you feel My love when I kiss you gently with the morning dew?
Can't you acknowledge My existence when
you see the earth and the sky that I created for you?
Did you know that I knitted you in your mother's womb?
Come back to Me for I have waited for you for thousand of years
Come back to Me for I will provide you with eternal love
Come back to Me for I will take you to Heavens
Where we shall be together forever....
Thanks be to the Holy Spirit for the divine inspiration

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in the view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God - this is your true and proper worship. Do not confirm to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then, you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing, and perfect will."
