What Works for You?

26 Aug

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

Sometimes it is a dream that keeps us going-
the root of a thought that keeps on growing and growing.
Or, are you motivated by others?
You strive to meet their goals for you.
Just remember, it’s important to yourself be true.
it will only lead to strife.

 

God created you to be You.
He is the one who gave you talent.
He is the one who gave you life.
When you struggle to be another,
it will only lead to strife.

 

Trust in the Lord with your whole heart.
He wants the best for you.
When you are doing what you love,
God is saying “Yes” to you.

 

Don’t let failure define you.
Hold on to your vision.
Ask the Lord to guide you
in making the right decision.

 

When you are doing what you love,
it excites your inner core.
It energizes creativity
and allows you to do more.

 

Keep in mind, your biggest cheerleader
in life is you.
Choose a positive attitude in reaching your goals
and watch you dreams come true.

    Good advice. Why do we struggle to be something we are not when God created us to be a unique flower in His garden?

      ALTA, I LOVE YOUR QUOTE “GOD CREATED US TO BE A UNIQUE FLOWER IN HIS GARDEN”. DO I HAVE YOUR PERMISSION TO USE IT IN A POEM SOMETIME?

    I read to forward to Job by Eugene Peterson in his Message translation and, Louise, he said the same thing your poem says, but in a little different way. What a cool confirmation for readers to know the two of you are on the same page. Lovely poem.
