Certified So: Redefining Happiness
The Curse

Had only found

One little tiny fig

Clinging to its branches,

Do you think

He would have cursed it?


Because it's never been

About how many figs

Are on the tree.Mark 12:41-44

But rather,

It has always been about

The infinite amount

The Lord can make

If He is in the tree,

When the tree

Seeks to feed the needs

Of others first.

And we are

The fig trees,

The planting of the Lord,Isaiah 61:1-3

If our deeds feed

Our neighbors need

For love and understanding.1 Peter 3:8-9

Or if we seek to sow

A seed of patience

In those we deem to be

Impatient or demanding.Galatians 5:13-16


The overwhelming fact

That we feel like

We only have

One little tiny fig

Of happiness

Clinging to our branches.

But why,

Should we even try,

To do the things

That often seem

So impossible?Isaiah 58:6-12


The very instant

That we seek to feed

The needs of others first,

In faith,

However small,

A miracle occurs.

And even though

It seemed like

We had hardly any

Figs of happiness

At all,Galatians 5:22-23

God will always give us

Just enough

To always have enough

To feed the needs

Of one and all!
