Outside the Lines

He ignores all the rules.
He won’t fit inside the boxes.
He paints outside the lines.
He delights in paradoxes.

He calls us to wonder
At the miracles we find.
He draws us to think,
And to leave our thoughts behind.

When we follow the Maker
There’s always more to know.
When we live with the Father
There’s always room to grow.

He challenges us to change
The paths we know the best.
He waits for us to put
His challenge to the test.
