I’m ready. Want to come along? Settin’ out on a long trip to that place called Compassion.
Come along, to that place of passion with me. Leave all that intentionality.
Reroute from your nod and shoulder-shrug to a highway, no – a FREEway to tangible Love.
Complacency, have no place in me! Stop trying to invade my destiny.
You seep into the everyday. Like acid, slowly eat away at empathy and sacrifice,
God empty me of this crafty vice
That saps the oxygen from lungs, and soaks up light inside my eyes
Absorbs the voice inside my mouth and robs me of what love’s about
Til all I’m left with at the end of a day, The end of that year, the end of my life
Is me and my shallow thoughts of me, MY stuff, MY job, MY family
Compassion land is calling now and these seats are filling fast
Complacency, have no place in me; too many await me to act
Want to come along?
This is something I wrote this morning while I was supposed to me paying attention to the teacher @ church…but he kept saying things that made me think…and then I just started writing…
Spirit of the living God
I’m calling out to you, gurgling my request
From this thick pool of pride
About to submerge me.
Sweet Spirit of the living God,
Whip me around, get down on my level
Look in my eyes and speak with the fullness
Of your strength and subtlety.
Touch me inside
With your discerning love.
Point me in the way of my destiny,
Designed by your Word from before time began.
Impart your power that changes my life
That changes a life…that changes a life
That changes a church
That changes a city
That brings back a NATION to its founding truths!
“God’s goal is not to make sure you’re happy. Life is not about your being comfortable, happy, successful, and pain free. It is about becoming the man or woman God has called you to be. Life is not about you. It’s about God. He doesn’t exist to make us happy. We exist to bring Him glory.”
what’s one thing you will do to take the focus off of yourself and bring God glory today?
