To the world
we may need to make ourselves
strong and wise and fearless
But to God
we must always be
His vulnerable, little child
But hold on to choice
The decision to be a better man tomorrow
Is only a decision to remain the same man today
You can beat any foe into submission
Just by standing up more times than you get knocked down
When I do something that I know better than to do, I do not shame myself with messages like “I’m not any good” or “I’m no longer worthy of love.”
I do, however, remind myself that because I am still good and worthy of love, I deserve to do better.
Today we are not denied access to the written word of God, as in the Dark Ages. Today the existence of the gospel is not hidden from view. Today the love of God is readily available to any who seek for it. Today we have the ability to do all the right things that are stirring in our hearts.
Today, ignorance is a choice.
