Get Comfortable

Insatiable hunger Seeking spiritual food What I found was clichés Traditions and rituals But I sat still, hastened to pray Found that I was looking for flaws Negativity seeped into my quest The issue wasn’t the church It was my brokenness I’d put on these glasses Viewing the Body through my pain My heart lies…

Loved On Purpose

I’m always confident until I blow it As if grace is only for the put together My mistakes pale in comparison to the blood I’m a mess at the well and He comes and sits As if mercy is only for those who do better My failings become beautiful testimonies by the blood It’s okay,…

Free Indeed

The poem, Cut Loose,  triggered something in me actually it was the visual of the featured image. The picture shows an orange bellied bird pondering his or her current plight as it is trapped in prison, evidence by the barbed wire gates. The Lord showed me that in the spirit realm, I look just like…

Cut Loose

As confusion abounds, I must praise Distractions fail completely; hands raise Simply because You are I AM Existing before existence You never began Everlasting Father with You there is no end Faithful, Consistent where I fall You extend Reaching into the muck and mire and dislodging me Each time I consider your diligence I become…

Endurance Shoes

Our Saviour’s attendance to our melee is assurance that we are merely tapping into a fight that He’s already won. Death could not…

Afraid of Heights

Tempted to run Nowhere to hide From my destiny So much fear inside Life was miserable But I stayed on the ride Afraid to fail so I never tried To walk in greatness So much on my mind I’ll give it to the Savior And step to the side Changing behavior As I change gears…

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,…
