My Peculiar Purpose

Set aside and set apart,
I am Your peculiar child.
I have a purpose in being different,
A path in being exiled.
Tears of pain and sorrow
Are preparations for Your will.
Waiting in Your timing
Teaches me to be still.
I know You are God,
And You are my Father.
I know the promises
I have as Your daughter.
My hand in Your hand,
I follow along.
When I am weak,
I’ll trust the One who is strong.

Opinions Are Not a Fault

Someone once said,
So I once did.
Why pretend?
It can’t be hid.

It’s only a trick
To which you know.
As soon as I learn it
You’ll go.

So why agree
On something so false.
Having an opinion
Is not a fault.

We are all different,
Special and unique.
Thinking for ourselves
Shouldn’t make us a freak.

Working as a team,
That’s living together.
The more we share,
We’ll last forever.

Misjudged Servants

A lot of souls are judged by others
to not be of God.
People say because they are different,
they just are not.
But those very people
are the examples God gave,
whether faithful, humble,
without complaining, or brave.
These misjudged souls
are the ones who just don’t judge.
They are so busy loving one another,
whether out of love or a must.
What does Jesus think
of these misjudged ones?
Would he have misjudged them
or would he have been one?
