Labels we are given
By man can hurt the heart
When negative words they impart
Listening to this noise can put chains on living.
We need to change the words we hear
Say I am worthy and made in the image of God
I will use my talents and give while traveling this sod
Too slay the giants of negativity and fear.
We all have a place on earth and given a reason to give
So let us tear off the labels that hold us back
Disability, illness or living in the land of lack
No longer will these words have power as we truly live.
How do I know such things?
Labels have been placed on me all my days
However God’s love and acceptance I crave
Life is what you make of it and God only know what tomorrow brings.
May each day we follow our dreams
Oh and yes we all have our critics and there is a cost
But with the love and approval of the Father we are never lost
The label of love flows like a trickling peaceful stream.
