In the beginning was the WORD
And the WORD was with God.
And the WORD was God.
The WORD –
the Capital Letter change-your-life Word
that winds itself into the sentences of your day
and spells out all the
glory in your ONE
Strung between DISCO balls and WEDDING BELLS
all these years stretch like so many choose-your-own-adventure STORIES,
each new season a REWRITE as you turn the page to discover GRACE, FREEDOM, REST
right here in the middle of the chaos.
This is HOME
This freedom to take a RISK and fly into tomorrow
anchored by the people who HOLD HANDS around your TABLE.
Where you are WELCOME just the way you are.
Where you are PREAPPROVED.
Where you are always BECOMING
Over and over and over again between Monday and Sunday
All this becoming, all this shedding skin and fear
Because if the KINGDOM is a co-op and not a competition
If scared is the new BRAVE
Then choosing FRIENDSHIP ON PURPOSE
Is an act of holy COURAGE.
So we slip out of our shoes
and stand beside you in our DIRTY FEET
and broken, beautifully REDEEMED stories
because our WORDS MATTER
because THE WORD gave life to everything that was created, and His LIFE brought LIGHT to everyone.
Through you and you
and you too
– The Word, by Lisa-Jo Baker
