More than miracles,
I think people are looking
for Jesus to stop on His way to wherever He is going,
to look them in the eyes and see them as they truly are
Not all of us are ready to change,
but all of us want to be loved,
love is the foundation for everything else
It is easy to look out for yourself
It’s hard to look out for others,
to truly put yourself out on a limb,
At the same time, it’s necessary
You may not save a life
but you may make one a little bit better,
and in the end that counts for something.
Waiting to be called
to not rush ahead,
to go the speed limit,
to see my opportunity
and take it
to be okay with being empty-handed
until the LORD wills, fills it up.
It’s important to enunciate when announcing
you’re going to a tapas bar.
We often get so caught up in semantics,
with the bigger words getting all the “oohs” and “ahas” and accolades,
but I find
that the most powerful words
in the English language at least
are simple ones,
I am a saint.
You are too.
It’s not our doing.
It’s just our state of being.
We are all heroes to somebody.
Let’s live up our call.
