Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 04/26/2015

Allow wisdom into your life, and open the door by starting at Proverbial Thought!

I spent some time both as a teenager and a young twenty-something, both before and as a Christian, despising this world and even this life.

As a teen, I fully hated this world. It offered almost nothing good to me, and even the good seemed tainted by bad.

It was being introduced to Jesus Christ at a small church that my life and my outlook on it began to change.

Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. But that is not the way you learned Christ!— assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.
Ephesians 4:17-25, ESV

 

a regular life

i now give

 

a regular life

filled with the usual

hating the world

but finding it mutual

until God came along

and turned all that around

a brand new life begun

without much resound

but as God was working

through His Son Jesus Christ

this regular boy

was given extraordinary life

now the mission is clear

and the way seems obvious

who am i now

a disciple of Jesus

i will take the news

of the life that He lives

into the rest of the world

my life i now give
