All those times I feel pathetic and useless,
Just because I got fooled by the devil again,
Fallen into one of his filthy traps.
All those times I was ashamed of myself,
And couldn’t meet the eyes of my Father,
Disgusted that I had failed once again.
All those times,If I only knew,
I wasn’t attacked cause I was weak but because I was valuable,
They didn’t come after me time and again cause I was easy,
But because they couldn’t risk letting me escape,
For my impact stretched beyond timelines.
When they spewed nothing but lies all day long,
Hoping that I would believe them to be true and succumb to my fears and fail.
All those times,
I was a Jar of clay with treasures from beyond this galaxy.
They knew, oh my enemies knew that so very well.
Well, now I do too! For the devil only attacks what is valuable.
With the Holy Spirit beside me, I have got nothing to worry about.
2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (NIV)
7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Crossroads and crossroads,
How many have I seen…
In a life full of choices,
They are just never-ending.
Although it isn’t easy to choose right from wrong,
It is way more daunting to choose right from the good.
In a seashore full of fishermen,
He chose only a few.
Of all the thirsty women,
Only the one samaritan woman got to drink the living waters.
Of all the Pharisees with their prayer shawls,
Only Nicodemus got the one on one session with the Saviour.
Here I am today,
In a world that calls me in every direction,
What am I called to do!?
