Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me
I sit here wondering why, for all of my life,
I have allowed one person after another to make a fool of me.
Why can I not see myself
Through the eyes of God...who loves me beyond measure?
And why can't they?
What is it that makes some people feel so easy about using others?
What is it going to take
To finally say that it has to stop?
Because really, it's just a form of abuse...
Whether it is abuse from them
or if it's
I haven't quite determined that yet.
There was a time not so long ago
that I would have been in a heap on my bed
Crying my eyes out
There's a certain numbness about it all
And I haven't yet determined what that means either.
This I do know...
I am slowly but surely
Being nudged to look beyond myself
To get out of my little pity puddle
And take a good, long, hard look at the tragedies
that are happening in the world around me
To move, to take action, to leave behind those things in my life
That really have no eternal bearing
And to finally fulfill my purpose in life...
To be the hands and feet of Jesus
I pray that you will join me
