Hope that Outlasts…

My hope is sure to outlast the impact from the most recent test Growing eyelids, the tempest is steady, hope here is narrow Reminded that my character is being built even as the sun sets Sunny days took the year off but You never forget those sparrows Even what is common to man God repurposes…

Endurance Shoes

Jesus’ presence is akin to having the winning medallion on prior to the shooting of a starter’s pistol in a race. His third-day resurrection defied death, changed time, and disregards human reasoning. 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…

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. The issue is that we are trusting God to put out all our fires. God is not in the business of putting out our…

Do You Know Him?

“That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.” John 1:9 We may read that verse and immediately exclaim Jesus, the verse is talking about Jesus! Yay! But do we know the true Light is in our world when everything, I mean everything is chaotic? Can we quickly say…

Feeble Warrior

Is my faith weak or am I so fickle? That I melt in the face of adversity like an ice sickle Surely, You’re aware that I’m in this pickle My emotions cry faint,  then the tears trickle Is my life a metaphor; are Your promises a riddle? The closer I get to freedom, doubt gets…
