Bigger Than Me


I donít need to stand on Shark Toothís Mountain
To know oceans once covered all earth.
I do not believe wealth comes from money,
Or that possessions give you worth.

I donít believe life is a race
But given to the swift or strongÖ
But to he who endures to the end,
Great his reward, and rich his song!

Thereís something out there I canít see,
But donít have to Ė to know itís true.
Something out there bigger than me,
And yes, even bigger than you.

I do not believe independence
To be more than a ball and chain,
That straps lifeís burdens to your back
For the mere price of anguish and pain.

I do not believe knowledge to be sin,
Lest one delude their self with it.
But wisdom always comes a virtue,
Alas, for Godís word begins it.

Yes, I believe in the promise of the rainbow,
And Iíve felt the brush of angelís wings.
I believe in the gift of Jesus Christ,
And in the joy only knowing Him brings.

I heard of a miracle just today.
It is not my story,
so I won't disclose it,
but I also saw a miracle these last
few weeks.

You're home.

Oh, Michael, this is fantastic.  What a profession of faith!  Blessed are those who believe without seeing!

Thanks for sharing your blessing with us here.

God bless,

The whole poem is beautiful, but the last verse literally sings... and its song of praise and belief is a glorious one.

This is another example of that
great insight you have, and your
love for the LORD, my friend.

JL

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Maranatha!
