“Blooming Late”

sometimes I feel
as if I’ve started too late
what prize have I become
at this age

sometimes I feel
as if I’m failing to sell flags
because of struggle
at this age

sometimes I feel
as if my house
will always be messy
at this age

and then I remind myself
“feelings aren’t truth”

God, Who cannot lie
reminds me to stay
young in faith
wise in decisions
holy in living

He doesn’t see my age
He doesn’t see past sin
He doesn’t see my house
He looks at my heart
and likes what He sees

I’m not afraid to press through
I’m not afraid to move forward
I’m not afraid to grow up in His heart
I’m not afraid to become love

feelings aren’t sin
actions have potential to be

although I “feel” at times
I’m the only one missing out
on the freedom inside of me

living through feelings
is NOT Kingdom Living
living through Truth
