Words are powerful, but actions speak louder than words.
This question says a lot: Can we put our money where our mouths are?
What we feel and what we believe reflect in what we do.
But who are we when our actions contradict our words?
We're no better than the man we've pointed fingers at yesterday.
We can know a lot and say even more, but how well do we live out our words?
When we speak truth, do we speak truth in love?
Words are meaningless without action. They're powerless without belief.
Who we are develops out of what we believe about ourselves. What do we believe?
What is hope? What is love? What is purpose? Where is home?
Charisma over character, religion over love, agenda over sincerity.
Disrespect, Disbelief, Dishonor. Vanity vanity vanity.
These days, who acts secondly upon emotions and first upon truth?
Integrity and honor are weak. Where are the warriors? Where are the resilient lovers?
Too many Leaders are those led by the masses of popular opinion.
Leadership is not a popularity contest.
Now, leaders follow their followers and care more about people-pleasing.
Money making, self-glorifying, shameless, ruthless, cowards.
Liars. I don't believe a word they say.
Political agenda, money talks. Wolfish leaders, slaves to those whom they 'lead.'
Follow the leader, who follows the followers. The blind leading the blind.
When will this end?
Those willing to stand for something they believe in - I see your courage.
Those willing to fight for a real thing - I feel the warmth from the fire burning in your soul.
It gives warmth to all nearby on these colder nights. So don't grow cold & don't grow weary.
You've known truth. You know love. You have hope. Don't ever give up.
Who will take no for an answer? Who will say yes to justice and love?
There are many hopeless, but we're too focused on ourselves.
Will we choose to love before waiting to be chosen?
Too many compromises, too many giver-uppers. Too many facades.
I'm not a pessimist but I call out what I see - even in myself.
The struggle is harder when we focus on the but's and the cant's. The who's and the wont's.
Of the loads of information given daily, discernment weeds out deception. Do we have it?
We need heavenly guidance. I need my daily bread.
How can we be set free when we've been bound by so many lies?
Twinkle twinkle little star, How I wonder why we doubt.
Spiritual nerves foreshadow something that's coming; courage will be required.
Our conscience was meant to guide us.
But ego has been puffed up at the expense of the soul. Where are all the lost souls?
I want to find them.
False truth, false image, false identity. Material things only give us a false sense of worth.
Can we break ties with our cheap contract with fear? This cheap, false God we worship.
She breeds cowardice. She breeds hate. She covers our ears and makes us deaf.
Eventually, leading us to a self-destructive, ignorant death.
Resist her venom, resist her snare. Don't be enticed by her seductive glare.
She bit me once, and I was almost blind. So I had to walk by faith and not by sight.
Though my visions blurred, from a distance my cry is heard
I set my eyes on this thing I see, not with my physical ones but spiritual senses-
My ears guide me towards a voice that beats like a heartbeat - subtle, but deep.
It syncs with mine and I feel close to home.
From a distance it seems, but I feel it's not too far from me
I hear, not with my eyes, but with my heart alone.
'Don't give up, don't stop, don't look back,' a voice beckons me.
Flashbacks of memories taunt me and my past latches onto me like magnet.
An enemy mocks me and says I'm not good enough to last.
Resistance, I feel. Rebellion, I've known. Death, I've tasted. Darkness, I've seen.
Beyond my strength, I feel forces pulling me away from destiny.
So deep, so low, so high, so wide, so strong, so weak - I am.
Confusing feelings spat up by a spirit of darkness whirling so fast
I know it wants me. I know it needs me. It surrounds me.
But I keep gravitating towards this gentle voice that's calling me
Sweetly inviting me to a place I've always longed.
Unfamiliar, yet I know - this is my destiny.
It's greater than my past. it's power is greater than this spirit of darkness.
I believe and I'm not afraid, I'm not ashamed, I'm not alone. I believe, this choice is mine.
I take a vow, and marry destiny.
Freedom. Clarity over confusion. I'm confident in this hope - my salvation.
I'm in hope's arms and now I know it was meant to be, all along.
My truth, my hope, my longings were all guiding me here on this journey.
Peace is not promised on this path, but eternal peace I have within that will forever last
I can't explain - it's not a feeling. I can't describe - there is no ceiling.
I'm free, I know - I've always been. I claim this hope, I claim this journey, and I claim the prize.
I've finally realized now - that destiny is calling
This love is my reward
And I'm all in.
