“Amidst the Garden”

sometimes people
only read
what they want
to hear

this move
moved me
in a saddened way
too much for words

but some words
revealed a state
too much for some
to handle

where friends were needed
but not always wanted
where cries were answered
by heaven’s yes

for those who looked away
through tougher times
thank you
for not putting me down

for those who called
to leave a message
thank you
for leaving your voice

for those who rose up
from out of nowhere
thank you
for being somewhere

in the end of now
I’m able to relate
because of what
I’ve gone through

or better yet
what “I’ve” put “myself” through

“Open Harms”

people tend to yearn for acceptance
whether from themselves
or from others

I’ve heard countless people
come to God
relieved to be accepted by Him

how accepting is the church?

they claim to love you where you’re at
but do they
do we?

if a male couple came into church
holding hands seeking God
what would you do?
would you embrace them
welcome them into your life?

take that same couple
but a man and a woman
after unkown surgery
would you embrace them
welcome them into your life?

people tend to jump on banned wagons
and declare what’s wrong
instead of being what’s right

if Light boycotted darkness
what would happen

if Light ONLY stayed inside
would the doors be locked

Words that Pierce

Have you ever been attacked by words? If you’re alive, your answer’s probably yes.

Before my retreat, I was attacked harshly by two different people, both “Christians”…both “speaking their truth in love,” but this isn’t a post about bashing them. It’s about continuing to move forward in spite of them.

If you’re new or old to my blog, you’ve probably noticed how I love God and how I live through His Heart. In doing so, I’ve realized all the dreams I have and how they’ll become reality in due time. One of these dreams is to write about whatever God puts on my heart and/or mind, and that’s what I’m currently doing, but it’s more than that. Continue reading

In, Not Of

Yesterday, God gave me something to write about, but I didn’t want to write it, so I didn’t. What do you know: He gave me the EXACT same thing to write about today! I have a feeling, if I don’t write about it, I’ll be asked to tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that, until I write, so here we go.

This post will be like tequila: you’ll either love it or hate it, and frankly, I’m not looking forward to the results. Continue reading
