Patterns

By Ana Renee

My life is like a pattern,
That other people see;
And long before I know it,
They’ll follow it with glee.

If I laugh at something funny,
Then they’ll laugh at it too;
If I spread tales of others,
They’ll quickly spread it too.


If my styles change with each season,
Theirs will change as well;
The things I do shape others,
As only time will tell.


If I am not too careful,
My followers will become
Something that is not the best,
Something troublesome.


God gave me a big task to do
In every day I live.
Will it be what He wants to see?
To Him the glory give?


Lord, help me as I live my life,
Which others often see;
And if they follow, let it be,
A life that follows Thee.

Wow. This was very good...and challenging. Convicting, actually. This is something I often struggle with, knowing that people are watching me and that they might emulate me. Never a good thing to think about, when you know yourself so well. :P

Thanks for the challenge, and for the comment on my blog. :D
