Gifted, not Re-Gifted

You are not a broken box

Expecting to get met with a scowl

and returned to sender

No, you are a present,

impeccably wrapped

and beautiful,

carrying wordless

worth and beauty

How lucky we are to have you

be present, be now, be loved

and, of course, open yourself up to others,

the true treasure’s inside.

 

Chutes & Ladders

We all have flaws

Things we need to work on

but if we start with a mindset of brokenness

We’ll always be swimming upstream

Exhausting yourself

trying to keep up with the invisible Joneses

Instead, focus on Jesus

approach life with a perspective of self-love

Then life will become more a celebration,

and invitation

Rather than a do-or-die situation

where every failure

sets you back a billion paces

This is not chutes-and-ladders, folks

It’s your life

Live it well

Release Your Inner Geek

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 =)

o, Sweet the Blood of Jesus

Oh the sweet, sweet blood of Jesus

Cleansing and nourishing

to the body and soul

His sacrifice is our atonement

His suffering is our joy

for now He stands as king and LORD

above all the nations and angels and Universe

All of us call out His praise

For He is glorious and wonderful and good

His blood flows free through my veins

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
