As we continued our walk with God by faith, we were disillusioned about our relationships with religious people and family. We discovered the value of true friendship, the cost of walking with God and how few there were willing to pay the price.
The walk with God will start out simply;
Religious people will throng your side.
As you go on, you’ll have to leave them
If it’s in Christ that you’ll abide.
Don’t let them you fool you, it isn’t easy;
The road is hard and lonely too.
Don’t let them fool you, it isn’t easy;
It’s just like He said it would be.
Your folks may say they have the answer;
Your peers will say that they’ve arrived
But they’re the ones that’ll really hurt you
With the love that they’ve contrived.
Count the cost before you start;
You’re ploughing fields, not picking daisies.
Building towers takes strength and patience;
The cross you bear will cost your life.
