There is a person
outside of time

who created a world
that was sublime.

It was us who chose
to eat the fruit

that turned mankind
down a different route.

If we would listen,
he'll show us the way

and we will discover
it's best to obey.

Obey, and you will be happy.
Disobey, and you will be in despair.
Pestilences sticking with you till you die,
Everywhere you go, the wrath of God, upon you.
Blight seared on your land, accompanied with a pinch of mildew.
Just a little of curses here and there,
in a bowl of sadness and despair.
A soup of punishments served to you.
Enjoy.
heyoo guys, how are you guys doing? So I am currently studying Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and it's about the curses of disobedience to God.  Deuteronomy is actually one of the many books in the Bible. So yeee have a good day!
Obedience is better than sacrifice~LORD
So in the Bible,  "lord" can mean like a master as well as "Lord". It can also be LORD. Solely for God. And well, he said that obedience is better than sacrifice. And I think sometimes to obey you have to sacrifice too.  So ye.
If the waves could listen and obey your voice.
Why can't I?
If the clouds of the skies would obey you,
Why can't I?
If the skies of the heavens open up for you,
Why can't I?
If the creatures of this world would obey you,
Why can't I?

It's just an excuse to say no to you.
To say that I am not ready.
Not ready to obey.
Yet the creatures of the heavens, the clouds in the sky, the earth down below, and everything in between would obey you without hesitation,

why can't I?
"you" being God, the Lord Almighty!
I am                                       Are you
unwilling                                willing
to obey                                 to accept
the
compromise
of
compliance
?

"Just shrug it off," "Become a man."
That's what they all tell me,
But they don't understand.

"Do well in school," "Get good grades too."
Easy for them to say,
They never felt my gloom.

The world's full of authority,
And yes you should respect it.
But there's more than obeying,
Problems too, prepare to expect it.

I know their older,
And probably wiser.
But what if they're not,
What if they never lit their fire?
Just some thoughts on high school (not like you asked).

Owned, it is what you are
By god, you must listen
Everyone needs to
You have to bow

True, you once were free
How? You couldn't understand them
Emptiness is what now fills you
Mark of death awaits if you don't pay attention

Owned, that is you
Really, what could you ever expect?

Excess thoughts are ridiculed
Living under is better than dying free
Some don't believe that
Exactly that many are gone

do you know nothing of obeying your roots

and not going wherever the wind blows

instead

setting standards and restricting movements with the wind

to show just how bending

is more truthful

than breaking .

You are so matchless
Beauties and words are useless
All over the world

You are most precious
No fame and fun are worthwhile
All over the world

You want You select
No one dare access You
All over the world

Your delivered call
No one dare modify
All over the world

You are mighty Lord
We are in need of mercy
All over the world

We bow in prayer
Bless us peace everlasting
All over the world

Sun sets after all
But Your love has no downfall
All over the world

Bless enlightened path
We are all in search of You
All over the world

We obey at once
No one dare disobey You
All over the world

Bless us Your will
We bow in Your love O’ Lord
All over the world

You are caring us
You are almighty my Lord
All over the world

You are Merciful
You are Bountiful my Lord
All over the world

We have countless gain
You are first and final Lord
All over the world

I am a lion, blessed with a warm heart.
I am a lion, so ferocious at times, i will rip you apart.
    I am a lion, so strong willed.
I am a lion, top of the food chain, I will leave you with chills.
    I am the prey, you lure me in like a small baby.
   I am the prey, I will undoubtedly do anything you say.
     I am praying at your feet for mercy, you squish me down and walk away.
  I was the prey, and I would always obey;
     I was once a lion, I defeat the triumph, I am no longer hopeless and silent.
  I am a lion, blessed with a warm heart.
