There’s no need to dull our days

With half-heartedness and lukewarm living.

I want my moments made alive

By a warrior’s love

That goes out of its way

To threaten the lies

That tell you you’re unseen and unloved.

I want to tell you even louder,

“The King sees you and what He sees is good”

Until you let it change the way you live,

The way you love.

I want to treasure today’s moments

Like they’re clustered diamonds

And cradle their brilliance

Even closer during the hard days

When I forget His grace

And need to remind myself again

Just how wonderful it is to live today.
