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.

Aaron Was Mightily Used

Set aside and chosen for God,
yet made of flesh, able to sin.
Aaron was mightily used
despite disobedience again and again.
A leader to the people,
responsible for cleansing and prayer.
God told Aaron certain things
to do to show he’s there.
The molten calf, conspiring with Miriam,
even death as a consequence,
did not keep God from using him.
God was his defense.
Just like Aaron, you and I
are made with a promise in mind.
Don’t get defeated and quit.
God can help you shine.
