New Be-attitudes
« on: June 09, 2016, 08:33:25 PM »

BLESSED are the weak and powerless ones,
for we can appreciate the One Who has all power.

BLESSED are the unsane and unmanageable ones,
for we can rely on the One Who manages our sanity.

BLESSED are the defective character ones,
for we can trust in the One Who rescues and restores us.

BLESSED are the lowly, lonely addicts of this world
for we have our steps, our literature and each other....

I have been thinking about making this semi-poem more new-life oriented, like this:



BLESSED are we who have been so weak and powerless,
for we can express gratitude to the One Who has all power.

BLESSED are we who have been unsane and unmanageable,
for we can rely on the One Who manages our sanity.
 
BLESSED are we who have been such defective characters,
for we can trust in the One Who rescues and restores us.

BLESSED are we who have been lowly, lonely addicts of this world,
for we have our Power, our steps, our literature and each other.


And i may add another:

BLESSED are we who have been intimate with insanity and death,
for we have been given transformed minds and new lives of service.
