Happy Wednesday! It is a poetry day!
Have You ever wondered what God’s plan is for your life? Have you, like me, wondered if you are becoming the real you He meant you to be? Reading the Bible and praying is the best place to meet God to talk to Him about it…or…to LISTEN to what He speaks into your heart. My husband and I are joining our church soon and we are so excited for the future of the church and our roles in leading others to Christ. We wonder if we are fulfilling our purpose for God already or if He has something else for us.
For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Philippians 2:13 NIV
One thing we do know…before we accept what God wants me to do, we have to choose what kind of person we want to be. Despite a painful past or ongoing trials, we have a choice to make. Do we want to be positive or negative? If we are psoitive, how can God use that for His good and the good of others? This is a poem about deciding to be a Positive Me. The power of our choice can determine our entire future.
I am more than what happens to me.
I absorb pain and see healing,
but I am neither a sponge,
nor am I a doctor.
I am more or less
who I choose to
I am less than what I want to be.
Though I reach up and travel far
I am neither a ladder,
nor am I an airplane.
I am more or less,
who I choose to
Life’s ups and downs may toss me around
but once I’ve landed, I can choose
to what extent it shapes me.
I choose the better path.
I will be God’s child,
I will be
You made us and know us better than we do ourselves. You think we are capable of things we have not even realized yet and may never realize without Your help. We are Yours; we want to be what You can make of us. Please shed light on what You want us to be, even if it is something uncomfortable or scary. We know that in You, we can do amazing things that reach other people. Guide us to be more others minded with a focus on how we can lead them to You. We ask these things in You most precious and holy name. Amen.
Love and prayers to you. Have a great Wednesday!
Just me. Just His.
