Excuse Me, Potter (poem by me)

When one studies men throughout history,
one must befriend their own mediocrity,
he must confess his grievous apathy,
and admit his pathetic passivity.

He must go to God humbly,
and say, “Lord, do what thou will with me”
for I am weak and unsatisfactory,
and You are strong and mighty.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” —Romans 12:1

Sometimes we forget God has a plan for each one of us, and we try to create our own legacy for our own glory. Do you have ambitious plans that you need to let go of so that God can accomplish His great plan for your life?

His Likeness (poem by me)

C onsider how unique God made MAN
A dding vision and emotion, there IS
S o much man has invented and MADE,
T hose raw ingredients mixed IN.
N ever picture a big eye in the sky, GOD’S
E specially not a bloated brain, Love is His IMAGE
T ake care to nourish, preserve, AND
S ustain your body. It is His LIKENESS.

And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” —Matthew 4:19

See what I did there? I knew you would ’cause you’re clever like that. 😉
