I Remember


This year we especially feel the weight the world presses on our shoulders. From natural disaster to unnatural massacre, the human race has been rocked hard the past 365.
Glory to God for His promises and for the weight Jesus carried and still willingly totes on our behalf. There is rest in Him, but that is the testing we must live in. Every day is a battle, as it was for the One who has already been named the victor! This CHRISTmas, I remember the Man who was, who is , and is to come.
Be blessed. Be loved. Be victorious!

Song Lyrics- Josh Garrels “SISU”

By the word and command, mortal man can stand, son of man is the manna manifest In the flesh and the blood, and the bones and the rocks, in the valley of the dead
The dry bones are gonna walk and talk
To the rhythm of the saints y’all, to the rhythm of the saints And I paint it red to remember the dead,
who layed down their lives for the truth And the seed that is buried takes root, and this ignorant world will have proof I remember the sins of my youth,
the path and the madness of unrestrained pleasure The heavier trip it made the heavier debter In the deepest of dark without a wing or a feather,
The spiral closed in like a cage, like a cage A maze that’s amazing for days turns to rage if the page it refuses to turn And the hopeless will hope the book burns
When the lesson it returns, but the lesson is still unlearned See I yearn to discern if a life can be earned or is given as a gift to the dead I read and I bled and I fed to the full my soul on the sickest of sickness
Seeking the light of a saviors witness, a way that one day that I might forget this But slave master wont permit this
Cause I’m a hooker I’m his mistress And when I look for freedom he puts more chains on me Strangles my hope so that I live like a zombie
What masters house can this be, that when I look for freedom he still deceives me If there’s a God I screamed, “Answer me!”
I didn’t expect an answer to be received, He said You must die, to be set free, living in the kingdom of God eternally Open up my eyes so that I may see….

We will all be a witness.

Trust


“A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

I am one woman
I have one voice.
I have two options
Everyday I make a choice.
To trust in a God and blindly follow
Or to see my way through a world leaving my soul feeling hollow.
To trust in a God who I can’t hold or hear
Or to lean on a reasoning justified by my fear.
I am one woman
I have one voice.
I have two options
Everday I make a choice.
To trust in a God who has written my salvation
Or to continue to rot in self condemnation.
To trust in a God who holds the stars in His hands
Or to cater to people and their petty demands.
I am one woman
I have one voice
I don’t need to have options
To trust God is my choice.

Something Sweet


“Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is.” -Gary Zukav

Tootsie Pops

What makes you smile?
What takes it all away awhile?
Kids are obsessed with it and they cry if deprived,
The stuff that makes you feel you’re alive.
Is it in a wrapper? Is it in a box?
Can you buy it or if too much of it requires detox?
Is it in the frozen food isle or at the end of the street?
Does the rush we feel in our lives come from the stuff we eat?!
O.C.E.A.N Personality TestFaith is not frozen, hope is never sold,
God did not intend the sweetness we crave to expire when it’s old.
Think of the way chocolate makes your worst mood lighten.
The way candy makes your declining energy heighten.
These things we associate with the words rich and savory.
What about the ocean, a good friend, or an aviary?
National Aviary

If you limit God’s given pleasures to what you can taste or feel,
You will miss out on exactly the things He intended to be real.
Somethings can temporarily serve you as a tasty treat, but
Salvation, Forgiveness, for an Eternity???

NOW THAT IS SOMETHING SWEET!!

What Is Your Life Stance?

“…pleasure, of course, is a slippery word…. Our pleasures ultimately belong to us, not to the pleasure’s source.” -Billy Collins

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10 NKJV)
