Overcomer

In a letter of encouragement to Timothy, Paul tells us young people, "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." (1 Tim 4:12) While this applies to all believers, it is directed to someone "youthful" in age.

Lately, I have been going through some trials physically and spiritually. Spiritually, I'm trying to pick up standards that I dropped out of self-consciousness or weariness in battle, and trying to put things back in their proper place and perspective.

Meanwhile, I have been pondering on whether to share a poem/song- rather a heart's cry- that I wrote several months ago. I have it above the head of my bed as a reminder of my goals.

I have decided that I will share this piece as encouragement for others walking the same road, trying to live in Torah, and be different than the rest.
...Maybe I'm not the only one feeling uncertain every now and again.

Overcome the Crowd
~
I'm walkin' down the road,
Like everybody else.
Am I just one in a million?
Or leading the crowd?
~
I want to be a saviour,
Someone they can trust.
But can I stand out-
Be different than the rest?
~
Can I be a compass,
Acting as their guide?
Or am I just as lost,
Never to be found?
~
With Yahweh's help
I can overcome.
I will be different,
Swim against the flow.
~
With Yahweh's help
I'll be a compass,
Guiding where they should go.
~
I'm not lost,
I will be found.
With Yahweh's help
I'll lead the crowd.
