bleak, black billows of discouragement
toss over me like wily waves
and i feel jostled and unjustified.
reality of my fallen state
heaps like bitter salt
on a throbbing wound-
tormented, tattered, torn.
coursing through this madness
blind to the next blow.
these tempest […]
It’s been a while. Miss me?
A couple of weeks ago, I spoke to the church on obedience…..ick.
If I could have picked any other topic I would have. I mean, Grace? Love? Peace? Those sound nice. Obedience, however….it just doesn’t give me that same warm and fuzzy feeling […]
Once again, it’s been far too long since I have blogged. It’s been far too long since I’ve done a lot of things productive, actually.
The topics of truth, honesty and grace have been on my mind and heart for some time […]Continue Reading →
It’s been a while, I know.
I’m going to try to be candid and honest because there’s so much in my mind and in my heart that I can only pray others will be able to resonate with. I can’t think that it’s all for nothing, I have to cling to […]
Been sitting on this blog topic for a few days now. These past couple of weeks seem to have been a whirlwind of events and I have been procrastinating on getting my thoughts in order… and coming back to reality.
A couple weeks ago during Kenny’s message, he mentioned some […]Continue Reading →
I’m pretty sure I have mentioned it before, but it bears repeating. On Tuesday nights a group of us young adults (some not as young as others, and some borderline the ‘adult’ category) get together in different places. We meet in coffee shops, homes, restaurants, etc. Anyway, this group of people, they […]Continue Reading →
It’s pretty early in the morning. Typically, at this hour, I would not be thinking about anything with any sort of substance. But this morning, my mind’s been working at breaknecking speeds, well, at least too fast for not yet having coffee.
Been thinking about hurdles in life. Not the […]
Taking time to pray is hard.
Can I get an ‘Amen’?
Don’t get me wrong, I love praying. Just being able to talk to God so candidly. And I suppose that throughout the day as I am working things out in my head, those thoughts are being […]Continue Reading →
a walking contraditcion
healed yet torn apart.
joyful midst the sorrow
with an enlightened, darkened heart.
a staggering, beautiful wreck
restoration in my rubble
clinging tightly in retreat.
awaiting peace in torrent trouble.
laying down, racing on.
Stitched and sewn.
mortared with Mercy.
Tears uniquely unexampled.
Yet my Redeemer’s requisition.
Girded and guarded
while broken and bandaged.
My benefactioned breath…
a cloak for the King.
On […]Continue Reading →
Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart oh God
May I be like You
You are the potter
Too often we think of church as a place where people seemingly have it all together. And then we realize they don’t, so we then view the church as a place of hypocracy.
We are all hypocrites to an extent though, no?
Anyway, I have been thankful lately for this past […]Continue Reading →
Soiling Your earth with greed.
Making what we want, what we need.
Casting lots for our soul’s worth.
Cheapened purpose for Savior’s birth.
Our hearts are rebellious and proud.
Yet distressful cries we make […]Continue Reading →
Sunday, a group of us from Bethesda along with some friends, headed out to the Soldiers Home in Holyoke to sing some Christmas Carols.
I cannot honestly tell you that my Holiday spirits and jolly joyousness have truly be up to par this season. Generally, this time of the year […]
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has appointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, […]Continue Reading →
