The Song That Got Away

Of the things I lost fighting for my destiny was my song. I cannot number the day or the hour but I stopped singing. The fullness of God’s presence was not there; I had no reason to sing. But I was around Jesus believing people, doing stuff that He said we should do. Where did…

The Resistance

Guide these clumsy feet up this mountain My weary soul finds rest there Hesitant again, but who’s counting As I learn to release all my cares The heavy wind blows; I am frail at best Tempted to resist Your strong arm shamefully, I confess Daringly I reach for the Consistent & Everlasting Boastful winds become hailstorms,…

Scream Intently

Winnowing the delicate sores upon my heart in stride I notice that sorrow is where suffering and purpose collide An explosion of mercy depicted as raindrops on a face Witnessing the collision, I’m just a bystander in space Surreal, how one can endure such agony and live to inform Bearing the unbearable has seemingly become…

Doubtful

Brimming are the reserves where doubt is stored. As one need is supplied another need cries out in discomfort. There’s constant inward, and sometimes outward struggles to regain ground by faith.

Corrected or Condemned?

The Bible is clear on the stipulations for condemnation. Of which, is this powerful verse found in Romans 8:1 KJV, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”. Several versions left out the last portion of the scripture, I suppose…

Get Lost, Get Empty

Casualties of war. The carcasses of saints either ineffective in ministry or absent altogether linger about. We must stand guard and pray or become one in that number. Our prayers go out for the Lord to do restorative work in those brothers and sisters. God will use prophets, and messengers to warn us of the…

Suffering for the Right Reasons

It stings when we realize that the trail from our current position to our destiny is riddled with detours, stumbling blocks, and pitfalls. Even with the best navigation system, we are in for quite the trip if we do not faint along our travels with the Lord, and we know it is all working for…
