Owner of Your Car

By Eugene Seah, Singapore

In the mayhem, I busy myself
Daily and constant

In the mayhem, I lose You God
Repeatedly in folly

Still in my stubbornness, I persevere
Like a car that just won’t park

Always I toil and labor
Though You’ve said, “My yoke is easy and My burden is light”

Always I wonder if it’s time to let go and let God;
And always I ponder if it’s giving up too early
Though You’ve said, “Seek and you will find”

Still in my confusion I frenzy
Like a drunkard-driven car skidding on thin ice

Lord help me park the car
In Your peace offered for free
Lord help me brake the skidding car
And drive me back to You today


Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you,
because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest
for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden
I give you is light” (Matthew 11:29-30).

“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.
Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” (Luke 11:9)
