I want to share a few poetic thoughts with you with the hope that they will stir something in you for the new year and maybe give you a little inspiration as they have for me, to dare to believe..
What if I dared to believe?
What if I dared to really live?
What if I chose to take God at His word
and let His Spirit free in me?
What if I chose to refute and rebuke
Those voices in my head;
The insults and accusations
That keep me locked in fear and dread?
The voices that remind me
of my weakness and where I fall;
that mock and taunt relentlessly
“You’re alone after all”
What if I saw through the lies
and believed He can use even me?
Embracing God’s beautiful truth
That He gives purpose and destiny.
With all my limitations
and though I’m feeling weak
If His Holy Spirit is unleashed in me
Could I truly be free?
Could I touch the world like Jesus did?
Could I know His strength in me?
If I opened my heart fully to Him;
and gave Him liberty?
If I cast aside all doubt and fear
and embrace His plans for me,
What would He do?
How would He work?
If I dared to believe....
