The One Who Showed Mercy

Meaningful Moments on a Monday with and Beyond the Memes of the Moment

Slide7

Problems that surround us

Need not confound us.

When love shall abound around us,

Love and grace shall ground us.


Slide7

The fame game and

The blame game

Fan the flame

Of the name game.


Slide7

Life is as much a paradox

As a pair of mismatched socks

On a well coordinated Goldilocks.


Slide7

In silence, I bow,

Low,

Head hung in all the humility

My proud heart can muster,

Listening,

Straining to hear

The Voice

That speaks to the me from which 

I have been hiding,

The one under my thick layers of protective

Gear,

And I do hear

The Voice

That whispers,

"I love you more as you are

For who you are

And not for who you feel

You must pretend to be."


Slide7

I tried and sighed

And sighed and tried

And busted my hide

And swam against the tide

And made it.


Slide7

You said,

"Come unto me."

You called me weary and heavy laden.

You welcomed me and I came.

I come.

I come.


Slide7

 

There was this one last thing before I could come.

I had to drop this hideous burden I had been carrying.


Slide7

Christ in me,

Be the voice that speaks through me.

Be the love that subdues me.

Be the heart that woos me.

Be the life withing me

And through me.

Amen.


Slide7

I am not a victim.

I am not subject to the wind.

I am not brittle.

With the wind, I can bend.

I am not the outcome of outward forces.

I am God's child.

And as God's child, I will respond to every circumstance

With a stance of victory

And grace.
