We all have stuff we’re passionate about
Could be anything from photography to rock climbing
to hand crafts to My Little Pony
Dude, get down with your groovy self
Connect with those who share in your passion
join the fellowship of the saints
You’re not alone, you are love
have fun stay safe
unlock the inner geek =)
It’s time to stand in the gap
Caring for those in need
The government ain’t gonna do it
It’s time to return to our origins
To be so known for our love
that it resonates in every strata of society
Time to make a change now, y’all
Starting this moment
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
Today I am born
Thanks to so many people
and the God who made me
Thank you Jesus for salvation
Thank you Spirit for inspiration
Thank you family for a forever home
Thank you friends for never leaving me alone
Thank you life
for your boundless wonder
Thank you sky
for that starry veil I’m under
Thank you sleep
for reviving me
Thank you wake
for entertaining me
Every breath I take, every step
is a gift
Thank you thank you thank you
for all of it.
The other day I bought a homeless man a guitar.
He promised he’d do all kinds of good things with it,
you know, to sell his worthiness to me.
But I didn’t buy it for that reason,
I bought it cuz he wanted a guitar.
I haven’t heard from him since the transaction,
but a pastor friend tells me he plays it all the time.
DO what is good, not because of the outcome
but because it is good.
Sometimes, it pays off in ways
you could never have imagined.
In my dream I am being chased by Sweetums, the muppet
down an endless hallway
I run and I run, but I can’t escape
so he overtakes me and gobbles me up
and I’m in the belly of this muppet
in the dark
saying to myself,
“It’s a dream it’s a dream it’s a dream!”
But I can’t wake up
and I don’t wake up until I shut up.
That’s when I finally awake.
Life is like that.
There are monsters in our lives
that we can’t outrun,
we can’t negotiate or reason with.
There are monsters we must embrace
Because they’re not monsters at all,
but rather instruments of change.
And change is scary.
But God is good.
He will get us through.
The fluid movement of musculature
Like leaves in the fall
effortless yet trembling
blood coursing through
as the soul revives.
