Daily Wisdom Words, DWW Music Prompt

DON’T TRY SO HARD BY AMY GRANT

DON’T TRY SO HARD BY AMY GRANT

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Mathew 11:28-30 (NIV)

I never had this song, Don’t try so hard by Amy Grant, as an option but it dawned on me that I needed to take you all to church today.

Why are you trying so hard? What are you trying so hard to do? I can go on to make this whole talk a long one but I think there’s really no need when I can tell you that trying to get things done is great but always know the place of the grace of God. He makes little things big.

Enough talking. The song is ‘Don’t try so hard by Amy Grant’. Do you think you can write about it? I am Abuh Monday Eneojo. This is Daily Wisdom Words Music Prompt.

Cry so hard, try so hard Come as ye are People pleaser; endured life O’ strife never good enough it seems, no matter how much ya care no matter what ya do for others, seems like everyone’s lookin with blind eyes at your love which seems disguised, in a world full O’ lack of love & affection misconceptions and assumptions that ye must have secret deceptions not good with spoken words, so ya show em with deeds, but still love sometimes hurts when ye have expectations for love in return thankful for Jesus, who showed the way the truth &… Read more »

Desiree

You pull out all the stops with a smile
No stone left unturned for awhile
Hearts moving mountain clover
Bent backwards over & over

Boiled ocean heats my neck of the wood
Painted lady short cut neighborhood
One shot Mountain Back in three
Broke a Desiree

A word is just a word
It becomes a concept when
You put meaning on them
It can englobe the world

A paper is just a paper
It can turn into a letter
Whenever you fill it with letters
It can turn you into a lover or a hater

Beautiful Soul
Where were we before time
days seem as summer’s past
as autumn’s loom
caressed our sweet hopes.

We move in graceful beauty
as children wondering
is love enough
can it heal our yesterdays.

You have everything inside
such a gorgeous soul
sing to us your delight
no one is real without you.
