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
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.
