My Future Son

to my future son
the world
hasn’t met you yet
but Heaven
sees the breath
you’ll take
for the
first time
when the light
your eyes
to shine
your time
is perfect
by the highest
God who reigns
over the earth
wisdom is your crown
justice is the sound
your voice will make
when nations rage
His truth you claim
honor you take
along with you
you go
aspire to Jesus
when they tell you
what a man
should be
He is what a man
should be
they can’t define
what a man
will be
live for Him
and you will see
your strength
comes from
a higher King
than earth could ever render
engender God’s heart

they will
want you
to be ruthless
heartless and senseless
but you will see through this
and choose to refuse this
corrupt way of life
take the way of the light

Jesus is the light
they will
tell you
to use her
abuse her
and taunt her
but you will see through that
reject that and flee that
for He didn’t raise you
like that
my son is
stronger than that
better than that
braver than that

Jesus is love

God’s sons personify love
love well
forgive quickly
work hard
and give freely
when the weight
of the world
is pressing down on you
and it will press down on you
when you expect it
and when you least expect it

failures won’t break you
they will make you
who you are
listen to Jesus
near and far
and let Him
lead you
from His heart
speaking to yours

you don’t want to miss it
the moments each day
you were made
to exchange
with your God
and Savior

Jesus is your lifeline
the world hasn’t met you yet
but God has
and when He breathes
your heart to life
you only have one chance
to live it well
so live it well
live it for The King

“Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to the royal son! May he judge your people with righteousness, and you’re poor with justice! Let the mountains prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness! May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor!” Psalm‬ ‭72‬:‭1‬-‭4
