Action/Initiative

There are prisoners in jail

There are poor needing food

There are lonely needing friends

There are opportunities to better the lives of others

and ourselves

around every corner

Will you keep your eyes open to see them,

your ears to see them,

your hands to reach them, your feet

to go?

The opportunities are there

Will you accept their invitation?

If You’ve Made it This Far

If you’ve made it this far,

You’ve made it this far

It’s not easy

I’m sure there were times

Maybe you wanted out

to give up to give in to say it’s not worth it

I’m better off gone

but you’re not gone, you’re here

Thank God for you!

You are wonderful!

There’s no time like the present

Start making a difference

You are the pebble in the pond the endless ripple

Go out and touch the lives of many

who will benefit from your light

Expel the darkness

It’s a new day

Live it to the full

Here, Today

*Mark 6:7-12

 

Jesus sent them out

in pairs

first the twelve, then the seventy-two

He sent them out with nothing,

reminding us all we don’t need all the baggage

all the stuff

to accomplish His mission

We just need Him

And if His message is not received

that is okay,

just knock the dust off and keep on going.

We’ve got to do,

miracles to perform,

demons to expel.

Let the Kingdom of God begin here today!

You.

Forget about confidence

Focus on the real

Get out and try

do and fail and do again

Learn from the old school

of hard knocks

Confidence

Comfort

Those all come later

But remember:

you left the safety net behind

that’s why it’s new and difficult

why it takes effort and time

You’ll get it

You’ll excel

It WILL come

Just keep going

learning

loving

being

you.
