That Takes Guts - Poem by David Knox

Dude what you do really takes guts
I want you to know that I have some serious respect
For the risk of coming to this country, it's not what you'd expect
It's a move of boldness and don't underestimate that
You left your home to live here dude be proud
Proclaim your faith loud
While you have this small window of ministry and missions
In a foreign country

Dude I can see the power of God inside of you
Don't worry about your english
Because God is fluent
Don't discount your knowledge of the bible
Because God's Spirit who gives all wisdom lives inside of you
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity
But of love and power and a sound mind
Live in that promise and remember His love
Remember the dove
That descended upon Jesus
Lives inside of you

It encourages my faith to see your hunger to know Him
It encourages my faith to see the fact that you came to the states
I'm glad for sure that I met you
Hopefully we'll see each other again too
I just wanted to remind you of the gift God gave you
Just wanted to say coming here took guts too
I don't know if I'll study aboard even when I'm 20? !

But you came before you were even 20, but now you are
So happy birthday, thanks for traveling so far
Because now I got to meet an awesome friend
Sorry it's late but this is the only gift I could think of to send.
