The Rooms

In the halls of discontentment

In the crowded spaces of resentment

Are these cloth coverings of protection?

Because of our wounds of rejection?

 

We are all mummied up

Spilling this blessed cup

Blocking our vision because of these cloths

We are could-have-been-butterflies moths

 

When will we allow our ugliness to shine?

That’s where mess and glory allow the stars to align

God is a Ghost

6E4B8927-E9F3-4BE1-A8A0-5A8624008966

This is a poem from a while back. Enjoy!

The cobwebs, the crooked doors, and the darkened hallways
I forget to acknowledge myself in all my ways
I forget there is one constant in all of the universe
It still has to run its course
When I feel all alone
I forget there is a soul of mine I can call my own
Aliens, ghosts, and skeletons
But don’t you forget God is a ghost
He has come to give you what you need most
You should fear this ghost
He can mysteriously pop up in front of you during the day
Sometimes it appears he is unseen
But he knows what you need
He has come to reap and comfort
For he alone can heal our hurt
Don’t forget God’s a ghost
And he loves you very much
Don’t forget his mysterious power

If You’re Passing through the Waters…

I don’t know why I had the urge to write this tonight. It kind of washed over me, like something I knew I had to do. I mean- I haven’t written a blog post in months, but tonight…it’s something I’m doing.

I hope this blog post meets you right where you’re at. Maybe you’re feeling great- I’m glad! Maybe you’re not feeling anything in particular. Maybe you’re feeling the whole world crash around you, and you don’t know why…or you know exactly why.

The thing is, I don’t know you’re situation. All I know is that when we go through heartbreaking moments, moments when we have little to no peace, moments when we are being challenged in all we are and all we stand for, we often feel like the pain will never end, that we’ll just be stuck in it forever. We feel like we are alone in our suffering, and that no one understands. How wrong we are, my friend.

The truth is, there are many of us who feel the same way, we just never speak up. We feel that people won’t look at us the same way when they see us in our struggling moments. Maybe that is the case, but I want to tell you something…nothing in your life happens on accident. I don’t know your worldview, what you believe, what you put your hope in. But I trust that God has an infinitely bigger plan for you than you do yourself right now.

And because nothing happens on accident, as I stated earlier…your story, however unique and tough that may be, was meant to happen just the way it did. Maybe to grow you as an individual, maybe so that you can be challenged in your beliefs, maybe so you can use your pain and lessons to help other people who are going through similar, maybe we won’t completely know why! But-we can take comfort that nothing is going to go to waste!

These waves that are tossing you about tonight, they aren’t meant to drown you, my friend. They’re meant to make you a better swimmer.

So, no. You aren’t alone tonight if you feel like you’re barely getting by. You’re not alone in all those tough moments that no one else sees, and all the pain no one else knows you endure. You’re only being made stronger by the trials that you are going through, and while each wave takes us, we can have full confidence that we will be growing through it all.

Isaiah 43:1-2 says,

“…Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
    and the flame shall not consume you.”

When we place our trust not in ourselves, but onto the God who formed us and takes care of us, we are made that much stronger by His power. The chains that once kept us from being free are released, and we can live happier, more joyful lives, trusting the Lord with all our cares. He promises you won’t drown. He will lift you up through it all.

Your trusty blogger (who seriously needs to find time to blog more),

The pen keeps flowing

I write, I write, I write;
On one day, I write many posts;
Short, and simple posts, I write;
No pains to read; no stress at all;
Yet,only the best aren’t bored
By so many posts flowing in;
More or less like a river they flow;
Yet, no option do I have but,
To pour it out of me;
To free the way for the spring
To keep on flowing down,;
Those that like it; like it;
We can’t have everybody with us;
Those who like us will stay;
Those who don’t will not;
That is well and good for us.
Gratititude to you friends;
Who are with us day and night;
May God abundantly bless you!

Communication prowess

Whenever I peruse a literary piece that is well worded and exquisitely penned, I feel rejuvenated, motivated and inspired to sharpen my own writing skills and consolidate my communication prowess.

Effective communication ability tops the list of attributes anyone with an aspiration to excel should gun for.

Through superbly crafted communication you can attain the entrails of anyone’s heart.

Thus, spending time to build solid communication skills is a worthwhile endeavour. That is what I urge you to do.

Build an unshakable communication powerhouse for your self and let it skyrocket you to the summit.

Dexterity with words

Her story touched my heart;
And I wanted some more;
A wonderful gift of writing
Some people have;
With simple words,
Brilliantly weaved together,
They not only reach the human heart
But touch it in a way as never before.
That dexterity in weaving words,
I recommend to you;
Acquire it and have the world
At your beck and call.

The Way To The Other Shore

Move on, move on,
find your way to the other shore.
Climb up the mountain,
cross over the river,

overleap the deep valley,
leave the places of darkness,
leave the people of madness and strife.
Find your way to the other shore.

There begins the path of courage,
there you become a warrior of love,
a fighter for freedom,
there you find the sense of life,
the meaning of the world,
there you‘ll find your destiny
and the one friend that will never leave you.

Never be lonesome.
There you find the peace inside,
the wisdom, the smile.
Move on, move on!

Move on, move on,
find your way to the other shore.
Cross the ocean to a deeper sea.

Push forward, don‘t hesitate,
there‘s no time to waste.
You must feel it, you must experience it.

Be yourself to the depth of your soul
or you will miss the way, will miss the chance.
Move on, move on,
find your way to the other shore.
