Much To Perceive

Looking for inspiration
I began searching high and low
For something of meaning and value
But for what…I didn’t know

I longed to captivate my readers
Engage their hearts, their minds intrigue
By words given to me from The Father
A rhythmic story with…

Much to perceive

Today He speaks to me on criticism
With loving acceptance when we’re wrong
But in turn He is expectant of us…
To sing our debtors the very same song

Constructive criticism from a loved one
May sound harsh at best
By Not allowing it to fall on deaf ears
Will lead to greater happiness

Yes, critcism can be hard to swallow
Especially when believed it’s undeserved
But with closer introspection we may find
What we needed… is just what we heard

Like iron sharpens iron it is our duty
To Instruct and admonish one another
Helping each other stay the course
Losing not one sister…not one brother

Because the heart is inherently selfish
Of this fact we don’t have to learn
Yet, the heart is also giving and caring
Expressing the deepest of concerns

Yet, sometimes it takes harsh words
A wake-up call to make you realize
Due to your own actions or misgivings
You, yourself…compromised

Your own integrity,
Respectability or situation
Your work, your health,
Your dreams, your goals

So we must lovingly give and accept
Constructive criticism
Especially…
When it hits home!
