Be You

No matter how many words you write
you will never write
like her.

No matter how many hours you practice
you will never play
like him.

No matter how many lessons you take
you will never sing
like her.

You will never be able to do it the way
they do it.

Never

Because

No matter how many words you write
you were designed to write
like you.

No matter how many hours you practice
you were designed to play
like you.

No matter how many lessons you take
you were designed to sing
like you.

Practice

Learn

Create

But most of all

be you

Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.
Galatians 6: 4-5 (Message)

    I like the part of the Scripture that says, “Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself to others.” Sure way to failure and being down if you do. Good thoughts Eileen.

    This is beyond glorious. You can do so much with such few words. The truth you speak just washes over me and I can grasp hold of just what I need. You are special.
