I’ll Never Be The Same


John 10:9-11
King James Version (KJV)

9 I am the door: by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Life Disrupted

Right in the middle
It happened so quickly,
Before I knew it
It had up and hit me,

It was a thought so certain
A message quite clear,
It made me think about
Just why I was here,

So I set out to pondering
The meaning, the reason,
Was there some kind of purpose?
Some special season?

But after I had thought
For nigh onto a year,
I could not for the life of me
Figure out why I was here,

Then I met a man
With eyes shining bright,
Who asked to sit down
And share some insight,

“I’ve been watching you struggle”
“For a very long time”,
“About what is the reason”
“What is the rhyme?”,

“And I decided to drop in”
“And give you a hint”,
“About how you should live”
“How your time should be spent”,

“God made the heavens”,
“He made them for you”,
“Life is a gift”,
“There is but one thing to do”,

“Begin each new day”
“With a song in your heart”,
“And be grateful to Him”
“For all He imparts”,

“There’s really no more”
“That He wants you to do”,
“Just tell everyone”
“They can start life anew”,

With that he was gone
And that’s all that he instructed,
But I was never so glad
To be so completely disrupted,

You see, now I’m not striving for
Fame and notoriety,
I know God will be happy
If I just live life abundantly.
