Value vision

 

Figuring what do I have to give

to a bunch of teens

Listening to the call to look at

the bits of me

that litter the information highway

my desk and journal

covered in micro version of me

my children living – breathing

inside -outs- of- me

my patterns painted across my  life,

my values

my hard held

tight gripped musts

 

KINDNESS/LOVE

seeing the unspoken

and letting it be unseen

Sometimes space is all that’s needed

Listening and letting it breathe

quietness

 

TRUTH/TRUST

pointing out the obvious

in a push for clarity

Keeping open my mind for newness

and my heart for Light

 

CONFIDENCE/WILLINGNESS

having a vague knowing

of where the goal is

having the courage to run toward it

even though I have no idea

where it will end up

I just know it will all be ok

-God’s got this!

 

PREPAREDNESS/ORGANIZATION

getting lost in the detail paradise

to see what is

it’s like being covered

in comfortable pillows

arranging the pieces that I have found

fills me with excitement every time

 

SELF-RESPECT/COMMITMENT

Not moving

if I know its not right for me

stay the course to see it through

 

CO-OPERATION/HELPFULNESS

Paint the colors of your vision

tell me where the pencil starts and stops

I will follow along

 

INTEGRITY/TIMELINESS

A clock it runs on the inside

flagging me and ringing me

It’s loud, it must not be ignored

 

SUBMISSION/CLEANLINESS

cleanliness is next to Godliness

picking up after yourself

lets you see where you are a mess

Give it to GOD,

do the work and move forward anew

 

LOYALTY/HUMILITY

hang in there with you

together we will make it

Giving up is not an option

What I am is all for the Glory of God

it’s not about me

 

SERVICE/WORSHIP

These hands were made to serve

and lift high in thanks to the God

who made me who I am

 

Values are the power drivers

behind what we do?? What are your values?

  1. Wow, you’ve brought out insights regarding each of these words that I wouldn’t have thought of without your help, Starla. I really like this and I’ll pray for you and your impact on those teens. You have a lot to give!

  2. This reads like a personal manifesto – of a person with very strong values and integrity. I especially like preparedness/organization and cooperation/helpfulness. You sound like a good person to be around 🙂 I don’t know if I could summarise myself quite so succinctly but it’s really lovely to read yours!

  3. Confidence/Willingness reached out and grabbed me. Especially the way you put it. Sounds to me like courage to go where you can’t see the bottom. I love that.

    I also loved your intro, how you said these were the patterns painted across your life. Oooh, such imagery. Thanks for this!
