Scattered Thoughts

So whenever I have an interesting thought, I write it down. I thought I’d share a few with you. The way I’m doing it is similar to my Things I’ve Learned Lately post, which you should go see if you’re interested, because it is more developed than this. šŸ™‚

I live

To prepare for the absence

Of myself

From this world.

 

I’m a merchant

Who buys and gives away

Because nothing’s mine.

 

He gave His Son to die

So you could live,

Jesus gave all,

So you’d have all to give.

 

Do you ever think something,

And then realize you’ve thought of it before?

 

We only have ourselves,

but looking at God we see He has

Every good thing.

 

Better we be innocent

Better we be brave

Better we be ignorant

Than to know it all

And be afraid.

 

I always have a need because I’m human.

Because I love,

because I hate,

because I die.

 

Oh and one last random thing. GodĀ is all of the Divergent factions (All these areĀ NIV):

Dauntless (brave): “The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.” Psalm 118:14

Amity (peaceful): “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” – John 14:27

Erudite(intelligent): “For the Lord gives wisdom;
Ā Ā Ā Ā from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” – Proverbs 2:6

Candor (honest): “I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacobā€™s descendants, ā€˜Seek me in vain.ā€™ I, the Lord, speak the truth; I declare what is right.” – Isaiah 45:19

Abnegation (selfless): “Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slaveā€”just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.ā€ – Matthew 20:26-28
