there's no expiry on you graffiti footscray



All that isn’t
All that is
All out of my hands
but I hold it
just the same

All that is mess
All that is mystery
All that is ‘out there’
and within me
just the same

God, what does Your Great Economy have to say to this who knows its worth? Let me trust to Your providing for what is pleasing to You. Drop what should be dropped, yield what should be yielded, share what should be shared, confess what should be confessed. Let some fall, let some break, let some call, let some run late. If it is not of You – let it lie, let it die, that I might know life anew in You.

You have to start


You have to start
knowing you might not finish
You have to start
knowing you might not get very far
You have to start
knowing it might not make any difference
You have to start
You have to start

Grab some paper & pens (a long roll and colours might inspire some creative enthusiasm)

draw a horizontal axis through the middle of your sheet – this is for time (your age, the year, whichever you prefer…)

draw a vertical axis on the left hand side of your sheet – this is for showing paid work (above the line) and unpaid work (below the line) and should provide an exercise to map how much you’ve had going on at once…

Reflection Questions:

1. At different stages, what have been the priorities that have directed/influenced your work choices and balance between paid work, unpaid work & rest?

2. When you look at your journey, where have you found fulfillment?
In which role or balance of roles?

3. Does the work you do influence the way you feel about yourself?
