The Heart of the Lowly

Often I've lost my temper, given up on some around me, even broken commands
Many times I've fallen; yet he wiped the dirt from my cheeks and helped me to stand

But he's smiled upon many who have lived lives differently than instructed
Knowing how some wielding his Word will the minds of others have corrupted

My heart will always see a person for who they are; past any imperfection or choice
It is never my place to judge; for 'one day ALL in memorial tombs will hear his voice'
                                                                                                                            ...John 5:28

Do not get on a religious soapbox here;
this was to ease a frustration of my own.

    Well, I will believe enough for all those who are still struggling with it. I loved the poem. It doesn't matter how many times we fall, He will always be there to pick us up.

    Great poem! Philo called the LOGOS "word" Both logos (Logic and os=open) And Lexis are from the same verb Lego, meaning "Tell" "To count". I myself am not religious, I follow the path of Druidry. One could say Christ the Logos. But many Christians are Druids also.

    True words of wisdom, Flo:) It's better to leave to God the judgement, for He knows me and you and all of us better than anyone else:)

    I am so sorry for taking so long to drop by, but I said to myself, please dont wait until next year ( depending on time zone I may have missed even that) Loved the write, but even more I see you as a person with a huge heart, a kind heart, and one who speaks her mind! You inspire me!

    I think it is beautiful and comforting. To have someone who will lift you when you stumble and hold you when you fear, it matters not who it is, just that they are. Beautiful FJ.
