Work In Progress - Poem by Joseph James Breunig 3rd

This body is imperfect and flawed,
originating from earthly dust;
it houses a spirit searching to find
the one, true God in which to trust.

To see myself as Yahweh does,
requires mustard seed of Faith’s leap
and to take tangible action
since people know that “talk is cheap”.

Separated unto holiness
to accomplish His Purpose and Plan
while sharing the Salvation Message
is the whole duty of man.

Expanding my personal growth
by a divine, refining process,
inspires a desire for betterment
and to expedite this “Work in Progress”.

    interesting piece. insightful and empowering, yet humbling at the same time. a bit cliche with 'since people know that talk is cheap, ' i'd stear clear of lines like those.

    best care,
