Choose Life

Breathe Life


Jeremiah 29:11
New Living Translation (NLT)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Breathe Life

Our hearts are empty as can be
When we first take a breath,
And we must choose what enters in
Between that moment and our death,

We can bathe in hate and fear
Or fill ourselves with love,
The former comes from down below,
The latter from up above,

We can close the door on life
Or we can enter in,
We can sit inside with darkness
Or be filled with joy within,

We can wear a solemn face
And shun friendship’s open hand,
Or meet halfway a lover’s glance
And see what fate’s got planned,

We can live concerned and scared
That we’ll be left alone,
Or take a chance on happiness
On something that’s unknown,

I know that seems quite risky,
You might get hurt again,
But what’s to lose at this point
You haven’t a single friend,

So trust me once and listen,
It’s good advice that I share,
The Lord above will help you
If you just get up from you’re chair.

Help us each day to live this life to the fullest. May we reject all the evil and embrace only love. Thank You, Lord for loving us in spite of our wickedness.
