I’ll Still Speak for You

Emma&Jackson

I’ll lose friends.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll be shunned by family.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll jeopardize my job.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll be misunderstood.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll be mocked, insulted, laughed at and bullied.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll be despised, hated, taunted and threatened.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll be dismissed and ignored.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll be called self-righteous, an extremist, and a nutcase.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll know you won’t know. 

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll never be thanked.

I’ll still speak for you.

I’ll never be able to save most of you from cruelty and death.

I’ll still speak for you.

You are beloved creatures of the God I worship, a God of mercy and love.

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

  2. What a beautiful post. 1 Corinthians 13 is my favourite biblical passage. I knew it by heart in the AV as a child, and have never forgotten it. I feel that this is all you really need to be a Christian and that Church makes something very simple into a complicated and off putting creed.

    “So many gods, so many creeds,
    So many paths that wind and wind,
    While just the art of being kind
    Is all the sad world needs.”
