WHAT IT TAKES

What does it take to see clearly?
What does it take to be well?
To love oneself more dearly;
Listen, and I will tell:

Truth mixed with love is the first thing;
Followed by humility;
Joy, peace, hope and believing
Bring true reality.

Respecting the process will be
Essential for your growing;
Patience will help you to see;
Faith brings better knowing.

Most important of all is this:
Surrendering to the Lord;
His revelation brings bliss;
Life is found in His Word.

Then as you know Him more fully
and see yourself through His eyes,
You will become more holy;
You will become more wise.

These are the secrets of wholeness;
This is the essence of life:
Salvation that brings fullness
Given through Jesus Christ.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
