Foolish Voices – Proverbs 18:2

Foolish Voices – Proverbs 18:2

Around me so many
Who like the sound
Of their own voice
Of opinions above others
Delight in their own
Not allowing others
To be heard
Not willing to understand
Not letting others
Have a voice
These people in their world
Just keep on going
Believing they’re the only one
That needs to be heard

Proverbs 18:2

The Fools – Proverbs 18:2

The Fools – Proverbs 18:2

They speak
Yet won’t listen
They force
Still never receive
The fools
Who delight in opinion
No thought
For the feelings of another
Each their own
An opinion of freedom
Not forced
From one to another
For the wise
They listen and consider
And they trust
In the truth of the word
And believe
in the wisdom of the Spirit

Truth – Proverbs 18:2

Truth – Proverbs 18:2

Never do I find these words
So true as they are today
Where the fools find only pleasure
In bringing down my name
They know not of understanding
Just delight in their own opinions
But here I choose to rise above
Oh Holy Spirit show me the way
To be bigger than their comments
To conquer their hateful words
So I trust in Your truth
That my past has be forgotten
I raise You high above their words
And rejoice in Your truth

Defeating The Trump Card

Defeating The Trump Card (Proverbs 18:2)

I bite my tongue
A sigh escapes
Here we are again
Another crazy game of cards

Am I here?
Can they see me?
As I’m sure they don’t hear me
Do I have something to say?

A thought so valid
But the foolish carries on
Their opinion the only one
Used like a trump card
Pulled from a crazy deck
One to beat all others

They erase all other sound
Here I close my eyes
And look to the Father
His word is the truth
And will not be broken
It will not be defeated

I turn and walk away
And become the bigger man

Verse of the Day – Proverbs 18:2

Proverbs 18:2

Proverbs 18:2

I found today there is sometimes no getting away from people like this, the only way to rise above them is to find the strength from the Holy Spirit to chose the right words and actions to deal with them.

RISE ABOVE by FIREFLIGHT
Too much time we let pass by
Broken dreams and idle lives
Waiting on the way it ought to be
Pushing forward, falling back
Counting scars and losing track
Afraid to crash we never spread our wings
And with every chance we take we find a reason
To give up on the hope that we all need

Maybe today we all will rise
Maybe today we all will rise
Above the mistakes that we’ve made
Sometimes we’ve got to face the fall
Before we rise above it all

Can’t give up on second tries
Leave the pride that blinds our eyes
No one taught us how to say goodbye
Now’s the time for broken hearts
Embrace today a brand new start
Leave the past and let love lead the way
And with every chance we take we find a reason
To give up on the hope that we all need

Maybe today we all will rise
Maybe today we all will rise
Above the mistakes that we’ve made
Sometimes we’ve got to face the fall
Before we rise above it all

If we just lived like we mean it
If we loved even when we don’t feel it
We would suffer for a reason
And see there is more to who we are

Maybe today we all will rise
Maybe today we all will rise

Maybe today we all will rise
Maybe today we all will rise
Above the mistakes that we’ve made
Sometimes we’ve got to face the fall
Before we rise above it all
Rise above it all
Rise above it all
