A life worthy

Consider Abraham: “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” (Galatians 3:6)

You try so hard

to earn a smile

a nod

a “well done” from the one you serve.

And yet, the only way to earn it

is to understand

that you can never deserve it.

The only way to achieve it

is to admit

that it is forever beyond you.

The only way to arrive

is to realize

that you are already there

and always have been,

carried in his arms.

Why do we make things so complicated, Beloved?

We are very silly people.

Happy Tuesday.

  1. Nicely said, Michael! Most readers will identify, including my younger self.

    Your post also reminds me of the Bible verses that helped me.

    John 6:28-29, New King James Version

    “Then they said to Him, ‘What shall we DO, that we may WORK the WORKS of God?’

    “Jesus answered and said to them, ‘This is the WORK of God, that you BELIEVE in Him whom He sent’.”

    Wow! Adding those caps now for emphasis, I saw something I hadn’t previously seen this way: GOD’s WORK is for us to believe!
