Just Die Already

What do you do when you’ve suffered long? Your faith has taken major blows because it knew how to withstand the storm but not a deluge lasting for an indefinite period. You’ve been suffering so long that it has become your baseline. Discomfort is your status quo. You’ve become accustomed to pain and disappointment. Could…

Cinderella’s Shame

That twelve-year-old dined in the latrine. They bullied her out of the cafeteria, past the principal’s office, all the way to the grimy lavatory. How could a pudgy, intellect overcome such torment? What made her so unworthy? This wasn’t David against Goliath, this was David against Goliath and his three brothers who were just as…

Still, God

Every time, I consider the recklessness of God’s love permeating the earth I am confronted with this truth. He is still God. He never stopped being God. When I get too close to destiny and far from familiarity and get scared and turn back, He’s still God. When sin looks like my favorite dish because…

Shifted

Down, low My head would hang So far beneath Christ’s intent Even lower I’d clang Wondering where all my time was spent Bottled in confusion Nestled in care It was all an allusion How I despised the despair But now I’m aware That even when I was down and low There was no place where…

Established Footprints

“For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do- to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him- then the Lord will drive out all these nations from before you and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves.” Deuteronomy…

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…
