Surrounded by people, fam’ly and love,

I cherish the blessing of prayers and hugs.

We gather as one, all children of G-d,

But sometimes I feel… so diff’rent inside.

 

The wellspring of my walk that flows within

Comes from a depth many don’t comprehend.

Often I pause and ponder where I am,

Obeying His call, a journey with Him.

 

I can’t resist as His manna unfolds.

Bubbling, I’m excited with truth untold.

G-d keeps pouring as I’m willing to learn.

My cup overflows; more of Him I yearn.

 

Do I express myself or bite my tongue;

Will they accept me or will I be stung?

Tempted to pull back, I’d surely fit in,

But it’s G-d that I please, not world or men.

 

Still, sometimes I feel… so diff’rent inside,

When we blend as one, all children of G-d.

I cherish the blessing of prayers and hugs,

Surrounded by people, fam’ly and love.





Sometimes as people transition from a "western mindset" to a "Hebraic mindset," there are challenges and feelings of being different (in expression or understanding of Scripture) when in the company of family or friends. This is an encouragement that many have walked this path before.
