Life and meaning.


Life

and meaning

We assign so many definitions.  We come up with so many quotes.  We ask questions.  What is life?  What is meaning?

Why are we wasting our time when You already asked these questions?

You’re the only One with the answer.

Life

and meaning

They’re You.

It’s just that simple.

To live as You lived, act as You act, love like You loved.

Life

and meaning

Beyond what we see, beyond what we feel, beyond how we act, because we are not what matters, we are not what is important.  You are what matters. You are important.

Life

and meaning

You believe in us.

You believe we can be like You.  You believe we can aspire to do more, love more, live more and we can make it.  We can make it, because of You.  You are our Father, seeking to help us, to hold us up as we slowly inch, dangling, across the monkey bars, clutching us so we do not fall.

You would never let us fall.

Life

and meaning

Help us be like you, Lord.  Help us be your disciples.  Help us love You, live You, be You.  We are Your hands, Your feet, and You know we can do it.

You believe in us.

Life

and meaning

They’re You.

  2. Thanks. :] It was inspired by a devotion at my co-op this morning... We start out every morning with a devotion and this morning's was particularly poignant. It just really made me think, so I came home and this happened. :]
