Child, You Must Start Somewhere

image

Child,
you must start somewhere.
Or you’ll never go anywhere.

Child,
take a step and follow your own star.

Child,
you must start somewhere.
Your dreams are out there somewhere.

Child,
feel your fear and chase your own star.

Child,
you must start somewhere.
If not it will leave you nowhere.

Child,
know you are strong and reach for your own star.

Child,
you must start somewhere.
If you do not nowhere becomes your somewhere.

Child,
you are loved and made to reach the stars.

Child,
you must start somewhere.
If you hope to go anywhere.

I wrote this from the simple line ‘Child, you must start somewhere’ as a fun sorta Dr. Seuss like, encouragement to my young daughter. After writing I had the realization and belief that this is how God feels about us as His own children. So, where are you going to start? I’d love to hear about it!

Adventure, Art, God

Be “Unstoppable”

We make our moves in mysterious ways

We’d rather burn up than stick to the shade

Not of this world so we live on the run

We keep our eyes set

On what is to come

We are, We are, We are Unstoppable!

TobyMac from the album ‘Eye On It’

(Sorry I could not get rid of the 30 second commercial at the beginning, but the song is worth it!  Promise, now go be unstoppable! ~M)
