“MORE THAN I KNOW”
Lord help me know the value of a soul…even my own.
These things we take for granted.
The sun rises. / Just another day?
Is there really any such thing?
A stone drops in water. Is that all I am?
Just the plunk of a stone?
Is that all I am?
But no…there are ripples.
About those ripples. Do I care?
We all cause them.
Every action…every deed….every word.
Even if I don’t care, I still cause ripples…
I am a stone dropped in water.
But I’m not “just” a stone. I am ripples,
and the ripples are very important.
Jesus said, LIVE FOR THE RIPPLES.
Ripples speak louder than words.
God will judge.
How to fix so many little waves?
Do not take for granted.
Jesus said, “I am the way.”
The only way.
This day is important…
I am important…
MORE THAN I KNOW.
I believe in the Ripple Effect. The ripple effect of discipleship. “Go ye therefore and teach all nations…”. The personal story of “Gotham” will continue soon. I am more than a month behind on it now. Much is happening. This poem was written as I worked my new job. (I do not end up at STARBUCKS. Details will come in the story.)
The fact that so much is happening is part of the reason my story is farther behind. If you go to the first chapter of “Gotham” and read of its humble beginnings, one might surmise there was little hope for one such as I. But now I find myself in a new job, going to a new church, and having made many new contacts outside that church. God is doing a thing and it is blooming and blossoming one day at a time. Not on my timetable, for surely I would have rushed into things more quickly if I could have.
The first “House of H.O.P.E.” is about to launch! More can be learned about that by going to 1000housesofhope.wordpress.com
Since I’m so far behind, I will try to squeeze a little more into the next chapter of “Gotham”. But may the reader understand that those things happening now, would not have happened without being faithful to God’s leading in chapters 1,2,3,4, and so on. Every chapter has been important, even when it may have felt like I was getting nowhere and did not understand what was going on. Should you decide to become a Caped Crusader for God, you can find inspiration and understanding in every chapter. It’s hard to get people to actually read and study, these days. But for those who do, God has his rewards. Let it be a Holy Spirit Ripple Effect.
