1 Timothy 4:12 (ESV)My ten year-old son wrote this song about his internal wrestling with what it means to truly follow Jesus. I thank God that He has blessed me with a son that has a heart that is seeking Jesus so deeply at such a young age. I pray God equips me to disciple my children as they seek Him.
12 Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
Why do I hurt a lot of people?I know it's all a sinBut I have to remember, once Jesus was my ageAnd he never gave in.
Why do I have answers to questionsBut I only answer them to me?And then I see a lot of non-ChristiansI don't know where I should be.
I wanna careAnd I want to loveBut it's just so hard to do.
I don't want to give inAnd I don't want to dieAll that I want to do is fly.
I only have one question for GodThat if there's so much trouble on earthWhy in the world would he leave it beWhen he can do something.
But I'm afraidThat he just mightFire that questionRight back at me.
I don't want to give inI don't want to dieI wanna love and careAnd I don't know why.
I have a little voiceThat wants me toIt's asking if I willAnd I want to say I do.
I'm getting all confusedIf I could say I doIf I should or notOr if it's even true.
I think I should stopAnd just not do itOr maybe I'll keep goingOn and on through it.
I just don't knowIf I should go.
