Unsung Songs

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."1

How many songs never sung,
poems never written,
pictures never painted,
risks never taken,
bridges never crossed,
romantic words never spoken…
locked inside a lonely heart
the prison of another’s making...
are left unexpressed
because somebody
shamed us, abandoned us,
or perhaps silenced us
with a cruel word,
a thoughtless deed,
and said or just implied
we were not good enough?
And tragically
we believed them—
so let this be the moment
we choose to believe them
no more ... and sing, sing, sing.2

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, Please help me to know and appreciate the talents You have given to me, get the necessary training to sharpen these, and the opportunity to use them to be a blessing to others and to bring glory to Your name. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."
