Words of Our Life

A question to ponder
Of joy or of strife
What are the words
That have shaped your life

Words that cut deep
That make the way rough
Wounds of the heart
You’re not good enough

Or of performance
Of things you must do
If you’re a good person
I’ll be proud of you

Let us take control
To let the soul, grow
For it is time now
To let those words go

Found in the scriptures
One Word to show
Let it shape our life
Its Jesus to know

A Beautiful Life

Just a chance encounter
A woman cut my hair
But of greater value
Where words she had to share

From another country
A Mother and a wife
But those of her first words
“I have a beautiful life”

She offered her story
Of near death and of fear
Tragedy avoided
Power of her prayer

Simple of the daily
In sharing of the bread
Add water to the soup
An even more are fed

A lesson of perspective
When seen in God’s view
That we all can say
My life is beautiful too!

Time of Our Life

The time for choosing
Is in this life now
A choice of eternal
A gift God endows

Not only is this “time”
A choosing of our call
But it’s the only “time”
There will be at all

For “time” will be no more
After this life, be
As we understand it
Just sequentially

A very different “time”
From what we understand
Our “eternity” sealed
At time of death we land

Eleven Simple Words

At time of our passing
Not sure what to say
Advice to die well
Before we go on our way

Eleven simple words
“I forgive you”
“Please forgive me”
Next is, “Thank You!”

And the most important
Words for us to say
Is that, “I love you”
And bow our heads to pray

As we think about it
Why should we wait that long?
Words to share each day
A practice of lifelong
Based upon thoughts by Ira Bylock

Verses of Life

In life’s deepest valleys
Or in our darkest night
Let us proclaim
Walk by faith, not by sight

When lost within the way
Not sure how to cope
For I know the plans for you
Your future and your hope

When doubt overwhelms
Worlds temptation shows
Draw to inner prayer
Lord to whom, shall we go?

When in life of living
Quotes can be cliché
The answers wrapped in love
When we pause to pray
