By Our Love

Judgement is a thing
We each fear and face
In ever set of eyes
That we encounter
We guess and wonder
What is going on
Behind each pair
What thoughts pass through
Each mind and are they
Silently judging us?
The only way to know
Is to see what the person does
What they say
And how they behave
As Christians, we are called
To behave out of love
Not out of judgement
Our scriptures say,
“For the judgement
Belongs to the Lord.”
And the Bible tells us
Others will know
We follow Christ
By the way we love
I see the way clear
Between these passages
To act in love
And speak love
And behave in loving ways
And let God be the One
Who does any judging
We don’t have to
And we shouldn’t.
We get to just love people
They will know Who we serve
By our love

For Everyone

God’s love isn’t a color
His love is for all of us
Everyone struggles with something
None of us are immune
And God is for all of us
No matter what some humans say
God’s is for all of us
And there is no obstical
Between us and God
That can block His love.
There just isn’t
Love wins, love teachs
Love has no conditions
He made sure of that
God’s love is forever
God’s love is for everyone

God’s Justice

The thing about God’s justice
Is that it’s for all of us
It’s for each person
No matter how I feel about it
The thing about God’s justice
Is that it’s filled with His grace
And tempered by His mercy
And also His forgiveness
And none of us deserve it,
But He gives it to us all
In equal measure impartially
No matter what we’ve done
He forgives all who ask
None of us deserve it,
But it’s still there for us all

See Them

See then with My eyes
Look how beautiful they all are
When you just see them like Me

You smell smoke and see flames
I smile as I watch impurities
Burning away, look with My eyes

See this world how I intended
Just take a look
See it with My eyes

My child take one look
At these people through My eyes
See them the way I do

Then you might start to understand
Why I came down and died
Why I love them so much

Once you see them the way
I see them, you’ll never fail
To see them with My eyes

Together

And God says follow Me
Put Me first
Don’t worship other things
I have plans for you
To show You who I Am
The road won’t be easy
But the entire way
We’ll be together
And that will never change
I’m proud of you
Just the way you are
And I can’t wait to show you
Who you will be
Though this journey
Will challenge you
In ways you don’t understand
I’m right here with you
Your life is in my hand
And I have a plan
A perfect plan
Based on who you are
And how I made you
It’s who I created you to be
So come and follow me
Put Me first
Don’t worship other things
I have plans for you
To show You who I Am
The road won’t be easy
But the entire way
We’ll be together

Worthless Worth

This world wants us
To think we need enough
Stuff and then we’ll be happy

This world wants us
To think we need success
And then we’ll be happy

This world wants us
To accumulate and build net worth
And that will make us worthy

But all that stuff
Just causes more stress
As does chasing
The ever rising bar of success

Things and praise are temporary
They fade and are gone
In a breath this is
All worthless worth

There is another kind of worth
The kind that tells us we were born
With inherent value
That worth comes from God

We were made in His image
He doesn’t need us
He wants us
And that is a worthy worth
