My World, Your World, Our World………. An essay by William Marshall

My World.

I am charged with saving my world.  That’s what Jesus says, I’m the savior of my World.  Jesus walks beside me in Spirit, through the Holy Spirit.  There is nothing hard in my World.  In my World, my yoke is easy, my burden is light.  In my World, there is nothing I must do but respond to my brother’s call.  When my brother needs me in the least way, in my World, I will be there to help as the Spirit leads me and my brother beckons.

Your World.

Your World is similar to mine.  At least I think it is, only you know.  If you see me here in my World, know that in my best way, I want to give you a hug and tell you that I love you.  Show you that I love you.  It is confusing for me about how to best do it.  This seems to come easy so here I am. I think it might be my way of asking for your help. Help me change, help me be better in your World…………….

Our World.

Our World seems confusing.  We have polarized everything.  We have done that, you and I.  We have decided to be against on another.  To pick sides, to not share.  We have decided to be whatever we have decided to be because others before us told us and shaped us.  Just like all the new moms and dads are doing right now as they raise their children and shape young minds and their values.  I just had my first grand child in our World.  I’m excited for the possibilities a new life brings.

We can change our World I think.  Make it a better place.  But the only way, that I can figure out that seems to work, is the way Jesus says.  I have to save mine first.  I have to be the light of my own World.  That’s what Jesus says John 12:36  Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” 

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.  I am trying, to shine my light, to spout my truth, to show you I love you.  I’m on a mission to save my World.  Wanna save yours too?  I think I know how we do it.
