John 1:12 “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God” John 15:15-16 “I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the father told me. 16 I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.
I am generous and sensitive I wonder how nature and nurture Intersect I hear ghost of laughter Echo off the hills I see faded memories come to life I want my life to glorify God I am generous and sensitive
I pretend to be confident I feel my grandmother’s hands Playing “Run About” Upon my youthful back I touch hope like fire I worry that I will feel Too much I cry at the time lost to eating disorders, neuralgia And beer commercials I am generous and sensitive
I understand that I belong to God and not myself Nor eating disorders or pain I say to my children “just be enough for yourselves The rest will rise out of your truth” I dream my voice will glorify God I try to do the next right thing I hope to share my journey; That my life will matter I am generous and sensitive
1Corinthians 15:10 (NIV) “but by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them-yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.”
