Five Decisions for Life

February 22, 2015

*

I need the tools
The ones that open the mind
To inexpressible joy
There’s a way to find peace
That passes understanding

*

Five decisions must be made
First a decision to live
Then don’t make friends with your pain
Are two essentials

*

Now you are ready
Take Responsibility
Stop blaming others and self
This is the big one
There’s no growth till this happens
Life begins with your beliefs

*

The past is a gift
You know what you don’t want
Or you know what you do want
Get a clear vision
Of who you are and what you want
Then you will know the questions

*

This is the big one
Decide you are worth fighting for
Yes, you are worth it
Your value is in being
You must learn to love yourself

*

So there are five gifts you must give yourself
1) Decide to Live
2) Decide to Not Make Friends with Your Pain
3) Decide to Take Responsibility
4) Decide to Get a Clear Vision
5) Decide You Are Worth Fighting For

*

All the best on your journey.

Gift of Forgiveness

January 31, 2015

*

Looking back I see
The blind spots in my own life
Born of ignorance
Then the intentional wrongs
They can be overwhelming

*

The blind spots are important
Learning points to remember
Because they are there I see
The damage I’ve done

*

I’m responsible
For the suffering of those
Given to my care
Children, family and friends
I found forgiveness with God

*

To face the truth about myself
Is a surprising gift to all
When love becomes the focus
And forgiveness reigns

*

I forgive myself
God chose to forgive my sins
My heart was broken
When I saw the price he paid
Incomprehensible love

*

I’ve sought forgiveness
From those I know I have hurt
From those I don’t know
I pray God covers us both
With gentleness and mercy

*

In stillness I come
I am focused on His love
With no one but God
I draw near seeking His mind
And I discover His heart

*

He has favored me
Claimed me as “His Beloved”
This promise given to all
Is sealed with His blood
Established by resurrection
Embraced by trust in His words

*

I practiced feeding this truth by reflecting on the words given in the Psalms this morning. Psalm 31, 91 and 121. The judgment of my own heart is so great that if I don’t establish who I trust in the morning I am manipulated by my worldview and the worldview of others who also hide behind the noise in the heart.
