    Love 


    Tell me, Love

    Does anyone really know how to love?

    Is love an action or an emotion?

    Or is it both?

    Isn’t love God

    If love is God

    Then love is perfect

    Love is forgiving

    Love does it all

    So how can I love

    When I’m not perfect

    I’m so far off perfect

    When I’m not so forgiving

    At times revengeful

    When some days I

    Can’t do nothing at all

    So tell me love, what am  I suppose to do?

      Well love is god. but I believe god gave us feelings to feel for him and others what he feels for us. he loves us. and yes at times we are full of vengance and want revenge on those who hurt us. but if god forgives us for all the harm human beings have done and hurt theyve caused then why cant we take that as a lesson learned and do the same? I love you maybe not as much as god does but i think its pretty close. its a wonderful feeling or emotion at times and then other times its painful. but hes given us that sence of emotion and we have to take advantage of it. Once theres love in your heart nothing seems the same… love this blog!

    The truth 


    I keep myself busy

    Running away from the reality

    Of all this pain

    Pain that could easily be washed away

    By calling on your Name

    By letting You take over

    So You can put things in place

    I just seem to be making a

    Bigger mess of it all

    Attempt after attempt

    Only to fall

    Yet again

      What is it that stops us then? Is it our pride. Once again great little short poem.

    Out of the soul 


    I feel alone

    In this cold world

    Holding on to this hurt

    That I have to bear on my own

    I spend my days

    Listening to everyone’s problems

    Helping out

    Giving advice

    Forgiving over and over

    When is it going to be my turn?

    When are you going to do that for me?

    When are you going to all realize

    I’m angry

    I’m hurt

    My soul is tired

    I fight everyday

    To prove everyone wrong

    Still, I get no satisfaction

    When I do

    I’m taken advantage of

    Misunderstood

    But no one listens

    No one listens to my screams

    My plea for an embrace

    To you all- I’m just a burden

    A nice girl turned mean

    In reality I’m dying inside

    Broken in every kind of way

    No longer caring what you think

    Left here

    In shambles

    Crying

    Crying out to the only one

    Who hears me,

    God.

      Very beautifully, heartbreaking as usual. I love this. So very real.

      This is why the ONLY one who deserves our complete all is God. He’s the only one who is truly faithful and stays by ourside regardless of what happens.

      I’m sorry you feel this way. I pray God will continue to always help you and that He will glorify Himself in your life in an amazing way!

      I love you lots!

      I identify with this one a great deal as well. You have no idea how much. I’m pretty angry at god at the moment, so I haven’t been turning to him, but the rest of what you said is right on the money for me.

        You should pray and hand that anger to Him, He will know what to do with it 🙂
        Thank you for the comments, I really appreciate it.

    Save Me 


    I get so lost

    In this person I don’t want to be

    Hoping to unlock any kind of happiness

    Unlocking only all the bad memories

    Of the heartache I repressed long ago

    Making fresh all my healed wounds

    Unleashing all the anger within

    I have only ruined me

    I kneel before You

    Humbled

    I can no longer keep running

    From this vacancy

    With this yearning to be filled

    I ask that You fix

    This desolate place

    That has become my heart

    Heal my tainted eyes

    That refuses to see the good

    In anything

    Clear my mind of this useless clutter

    And fill it with visions of You

    Save me from Me

    Save me from the nothing that I’m holding on to

      Amen!! He hears you. He knows what you need before you even asked Him. Always know that Hes in control. Hes going to glorify Himself in your life in a great way!

    Unexplainable 


    How did I get stuck in this place again-

    Desperately looking for a way out?

    I led myself here

    To then figure out

    I forgot my way back

    I run in circles

    Only to be left in a daze

    Just to end up in the same place

    Same pain

    Same darkness

    The one that wraps itself all around me

    Until I can no longer breathe

    Or function

    But you always come on time

    Your love- Your light

    Makes the darkness no longer surround me

    You never leave

    You wait for me to call out Your name

    Even if I can’t mutter the words

    You hear my heart cry out

    And there You are

    To save me

    To give me love

    To shower me in your unexplainable mercy

    Unexplainable warmth

    Unexplainable light

    This is where I’d rather be

    Lost in the unexplainable

    In all that is You

    Beauty 


    Mid afternoon

    People rushing through Park St.

    Completely oblivious to the beauty around them

    The crystal clear sky

    With a few strokes of clouds

    The leaves that are starting to sprout out

    Birds flying- swiftly moving with the breeze

    They notice none of this

    Yet the men do not fail to notice

    The young girls who are lost

    And do not know the danger of no values

    Or the women who are too preoccupied

    With their fresh curls from the salon

    To notice anything

    Consuming themselves and their time

    With superficial beauty

    When the true beauty of creation

    Surrounds their every being

    Free Me 


    The sadness I escaped

    Is trying to hold me captive again

    It feeds off my tears

    And takes joy in my fears

    Slowly evaporating my hope

    Vanishing it before my eyes

    How can I run from something

    I was comfortable in for years?

    How can I stand

    When it is easier to stay down?

    God, are you still there?

    Will you free me

    From these chains

    I locked around my own heart?

    Or will I be imprisoned

    And tortured

    By these self-inflicted wounds?

    The way I love you 


    I love you, My child

    I express my love for you everyday

    When the rays of light slightly

    Warm your face

    When the breeze gently caresses your body

    When the leaves on the trees sway side to side

    Dancing for you

    Yet you don’t notice these things

    Everything I have made in this world

    I have made it for you

    With you in mind

    You are so special to Me

    My creation

    You cry because you say

    You are not perfect

    Yet you were perfectly created

    By My Hands

    Look around you

    And you will find Me

    Seek Me

    And you will know

    All the ways I love you

    Anger 


    I was so built up with anger

    Unable to do anything about it

    Except cry

    And shout Your Name

    I shouted out

    Over and over

    Left exhausted

    Finally I close my eyes

    To see You

    Holding me

    Brushing my hair back

    Comforting me

    You came in my time of need

    Wiped away my tears

    And rid me of that

    Unbearable anger

    That was consuming me

    Destroying every ounce of strength

    But there You were

    When I called You

    There You were…

    Again

    Help Me 


    God,

    Help me. Take away anything

    That is holding me back from you

    Help me change

    Help me  get lost in You

    I’m tired of feeling empty

    So eerily vacant

    Only You can make it better

    You can heal my heart

    And rest my fears about the future

    Without You

    I’m lost

    Looking for a purpose

    When my main purpose

    Has always been to love You
