Which Is Better?

Which is better:
To play loud music for the masses
Or to sing softly for the Holy One?
To soar among the heavens
Or to walk beside God's Son?

Which is better:
To touch the lives of others
Who only touch your own?
Or to reach toward another
Who feels left out and alone?

Which is better:
To climb the highest mountain
And to swim the raging sea
Or to worship Him who made them both
And who also created me?

Which is better:
A life filled with rose-strewn pathways
A life of ease and luxury
Or a life that has its pain and suffering
And a God who cares for me?

Sometimes I want the easy way
A way that doesn't test my faith
But then the hard times come along
And my dreams vanish away like wraiths.

I don't want to stumble blindly in darkness
I would rather pierce the night
But I will gladly give away all my candles
And let Jesus be my guiding light.

I won't let my emotions play upon my faith
As if it were a jungle gym
I will let life's situations be the pressures
That ever draw me close to Him.
