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. 🙂
To prepare for the absence
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. God is all of the Divergent factions (All these are 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;
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 Jacob’s descendants, ‘Seek me in vain.’ 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 slave—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.” – Matthew 20:26-28
