He started it !

Inspired by scripture and my girls who bicker and back by popular demand is my second Sunday stanza:

He Started it

In the dirt, from the dirt, this dirt came to life, then,

In the dirt, from the dirt, this dirt took life.

The dirt made a choice,  the dirt used its voice

And he, started it.

He chose to disobey,

He chose his own way,

He chose not to stay,

He started it.

In the world, from the world, the world wanted life, but

In the world, from the world, the world lived in strife.

The world made a choice, the world used its voice.

And we, started it.

We chose to disobey

We chose our own way,

We chose not to stay,

We started it.

In the midst, from the midst, He came to live, and

In the midst, from the midst, He did forgive.

He made a choice, He used His voice,

And He, started it.

He chose to give grace,

He chose to take our place,

He chose to run the race,

He started it.

He started it! He started it!

Though few understood when

He bled on a piece of wood,

He fulfilled eternal good.

And He finished it!

May you have a truly blessed Sunday and know that even though we may start one way, He finishes better than we start.
