Insecurity…lack of confidence or assurance; self-doubt….Jesus is the antonym and He says…balance, constancy, soundness, stability and steadfastness. Pretty sure I’m latching onto His definition of who I am!
I share the hope of my heart. I laugh with the joy of life. I give to help the poor and needy. I shine my light in dark places. I choose to love the unlovely. I speak in truth the name Jesus. I know I am only a messenger, but what a great message!
I look into the distance before me, watching with eyes focused upon the horizon. I can hear voices call to me from behind, but I do not turn to look back. It is enough for me to remember where I’ve been without positioning my eyes upon these places of old.
For the umpteenth time I blew it! The voices coming wanted to shame me into guilt. I took a deep breath and purposed myself to blow out all the candles lit by my accuser. When the smoke cleared I could easily see truth again.
Awake, awake, sing a song! Arise ….(Jdg 5:12)
I have slept for too long and awakening from my slumber, my song is YES!
To be a visionary can cost you comfort. You see possibilities beyond today. The very definition of visionary makes most pragmatists want to shoot you down with mere logic.
I am the simple
I am the free
Because I am simple
I can be me
As the night draws deeper in hour, we strive to settle ourselves.
Inventorying our days, we come to the reality of time spent.
When I can look at someone and ‘only’ see their potential, then maybe?…I’ve matured some? Until then, I know I need better eyesight!
“I know about you but what about Me?”….*
Moving closer I can only see the One who matters. My need to exist in my flesh fades into nothing as I am absorbed into His truth.* Lyric from Opinion by The Fixx
