I find I am much happier when I am at rest.
Note, I am seldom without something to do;
but, there is a significant difference between
having a schedule that’s full to the brim,
and doing what needs to be done as the need arises.
I have a knack for overbooking.
Why? I don’t know.
It takes me away from my wife, it robs me of my joy,
and it depletes my finances,
yet I overbook all the time.
Maybe I just desire the fame, or the attention?
Or maybe I am just afraid of being alone.
God, you are enough.
Let me be proactive about pursuing peace.
Welcome me in to Your Sabbath rest.
There will come a day when we will live together in harmony
for now there is in-fighting, dissension, and discord,
but I hold onto that bright bright future
for one day it will come-
I see glimmers of it, now and again,
like stars in the sky, often covered by clouds or smog,
but every so often revealed in their full wonder.
People fight, they do
it’s part of life
but it doesn’t have to define us
We fight today, we make up tomorrow
We fight not to divide but to wake up the senses,
we want peace to win
There’s a time to clench fists
and a time to let go
Me? I’ve lost all the sensation down there
The blood vessels are too restricted
So, I’m letting go
Let’s shake hands
God be with you!
You’ve exorcised the demons,
you’ve washed in the water,
you’ve made your peace;
now, it’s time to embrace your calling.
for we all have one, and it’s rich and wonderful
it has been waiting for you since the dawn
Don’t wait any longer
Go, seek it out.
If you’re ever caught in the rain, it’s only natural to seek shelter,
but what if you stopped and stood and turned your head to heaven,
and began to catch the rain in your mouth, taking in every last drop
This torrent is a gift from God after all, and sure it’s a lot to take in,
but why shy away from it? Just as plants are watered by the rain,
so too can we be.
Whether that rainfall is actual or metaphorical,
we have the power to take ownership of it, to use it for our betterment,
rather than our detriment, to enjoy life to its fullest and realest,
even when the rain falls
We are all like the waves,
we ebb and flow,
all our sandcastles are swept to sea,
yet there is peace in the coming and the going
of the waters
