Courage

Motivational says

You’re doing it wrong

You’re doing it wrong

You’re doing it wrong

Try the diet du jour

Everyone else is

You’ve been doing it wrong

Doing it wrong

Doing it wrong

But the light of the page

Qualifies me by Him

And the light of the page

Sings a different song

Inches supercile my way

You’re not good enough

You’re not good enough

You’re not good enough

Ladder glances over

With lidded sneer

You were never enough

Never enough

Never enough

But the light of the page

Examines blood adopted

And the light of the page

Has the eyes of love

– and you know what? –

If you’re living by the powerless image

Guess what? You’re doing it wrong

If your climb means more than your lineage

Guess what? You’re doing it wrong

If you’re eating from the judgment tree

Guess what? You’re not good enough

If  you’re bigger than Jesus, well

Guess what? You’re not good enough

Courage, courage, dear heart

He’s calling me

“I Am the voice

I Am the boast

I Am the face you seek

I Am the arms

I Am the Judge

I Am the pardon free!”

Courage, courage, dear heart

Courage, courage, dear heart

Courage, courage, dear heart
