The Big Question

July 3, 2013


Two things offend God for sure

When we judge one another

And indulge in self hatred

Who gave us this charge


The higher love comes

Magnificent promises

For those who listen


Getting past yourself

Arising to behold God’s love

He knows your story

Decision each one can make

A painful but joyful choice


Thinking clearly brings power

It cuts through the distractions

Awakens a whole new world

From the inside out


Transformation can take place

Energy is ignited

When I decide to give thought

And take the action


Distractions follow feelings

Feelings are ruled by the mind

Winds of desire can destroy

Or they can give life


So the big question

Is what do I really want

The answer shapes the vision

Then the questions form

I follow seeking knowledge

Being shaped by the answers


Respect for myself

And for all those around me

Even enemies

Leads me to reconsider

And think about what matters


I will decide that

Not a generational

Relational lie

That will revolve around me

But revolves around life
