“Flush it Out”

so many people offended
by bathrooms
by prayer dates
as if we need a “day” to pray

look beyond the bathrooms
into the hearts
do you realize
people are changing into
who they want to be
because who they are
isn’t right to them

can you imagine
not loving yourself the way you are
so intently
that you have a surgery to change

finding identity in labels
gender
religion
addiction
label
after
label
instead of in Him

do you think Jesus died
for only those…
do you think He died
for everyone but…

oppression: mental pressure or distress
remember who the enemy is

look past the restroom
look past the calendar
and declare the victory
that’s been won

“Chains are Falling”

keys
keys to the Kingdom
the Kingdom is here
chains need to come off

normally
chains have locks
locks have keyholes
to be opened by keys

often
keys make me think of doors
but as I live my life
I realize I have keys

to open chains

chains of addiction
chains of pornography
chains of promiscuity
chains of rejection
chains of religion
chains of sin
chains of unworthiness
chains of unforgiveness

chains
that need to be opened
with the keys
of victory lived
