Strength By Weakness

Bring the rain.
Bring the pain and sorrow,
To make us stronger, and truly see your grace and mercy.
When all is well, and we live on not knowing
That what we have you gave.
You bestowed by the power of  your grace.
Its when we hit our darkest places, we truly see the light
Its when we have fallen so far, we finally give up the fight
Giving you the perfect moment to pull us up
To show us your grace and mercy
To show us your love
So here I am in a messy place
Here I am needing your mercy and grace.
So bring the rain
Bring the pain and sorrow,
Show me your grace and mercy
Give me strength by weakness

I remember

I remember the feelings i first got,

the first few nights we would talk to each other,

i remember thinking, is this turning into something deep?

a deeper love than i want to tread?

i remember the butterflies that began, the gut wrenching feeling that i couldnt contain.

i remember the pounding of my heart, that i could feel throughout my body as you would say you love me.

i remember it all,

like it was just last week.

the first time we kissed

it was magical.

i remember the first time we took it to the next level, and i didnt care.

i wasnt scared… because i knew you werent a theif in the night.

trying to steal my treasure then leave

i knew who i was surrendering my heart to.

i knew exactly why i did, because i wanted to be with you.

 

i remember it all.

the warmth of your humid breath on my nose.

with the 43 degree weather, it was cold.

i remember your leather jacket you let me wear, and i remember your cologne you wore,

oh, it smelled so good.

i remember when you picked me up and i felt like a princess,

i remember when i was holding your cold hand, and we were walking.

i remember loving every picture you hated most.

i remember wanting to talk to you more but you would have to go

i remember when i finally had enough and i weeped

i hadn’t seen you for weeks, so you came to see me.

the long distance thing… it was hard

here we are now, and we can say we passed a chasm.

the chasm that separated us from being with each other.

here we are now, and we can say love truly conquers all.

here we are now,and we can now say, im taken, im married.

here we are now, and nothing can stop us from fulfilling what road God has mapped out for us,

let us embark on this journey of marriage.

Good in Your Eyes

Lord, reveal yourself to me

in a way i cant escape it

Lord, bring your power in me

and give me the strength to let go

 

for if I fight im sure to fall

lord please take all of me

and God, I pray,

knowing that you stay,

I will never stray

 

for i am nothing

i am weak

i cant manage on my own

i need strength to carry on…

 

comfort me,

give me peace in life

help me be

something good in your eyes

Greater Than All Sin

Who is greater than all sin? Who will keep us from falling? Who supplies our every need? My God, your God,  our God in heaven.

His name is Jesus, our only salvation. He is powerful; He is the great I am; He is so much greater than all our sin.

Why should i ever fear? Why should I feel broken? When i stumble and fall, My God will life me up, because He is greater than all!

He alone, Jesus, my rock…

He alone, Jesus my defense…

no prayer goes unanswered, no cry goes unheard, no, not one, shall be forsaken. Jesus, alone, greater than all sin…

Prove

The 15th of April…

that marks the ending

the beginning of the end.

the end of the beginning.

saying vows… that should and would last eternity.

vowing my allegiance to a man i barely know, now thats security

for what is love that isn’t ever lasting?

who says time is what it takes to truly love someone?

time for me to take up my words,

put them to use

to prove them.

to prove myself.

to prove.

Free

The ultimate nirvana… freedom.

being free from yourself.

i have been my own worst enemy.

and the thing is, i acknowledged that ages ago,

but i just now truly understood it.

i just now truly seen what i have been doing to myself.

i have just now truly seen the harm i was inflicting upon myself. and i am ending it now.

thats what freedom is.

letting go of what things used to be.

things of the past that caused harm…

thats what freedom is.

i can honestly say, that now, i am free.

free of the chains and baggage, holding me back of my full potential.

i am feeling of good courage, to share who i am with the world.

and TELL THE WORLD about what has changed my life.

my testimony.

my freedom.

 

Being the Example

It’s amazing how people can act. One thing you say or do, will throw them off.

One thing you say or do, and your friendship is lost.

its amazing how juvenile thinking can ruin your relationships

patience is to come in from one side and the other, but what if one side it doesn’t come?

does that then mean that patience is a one-sided thing? almost like a one-sided friendship…

not very genuine. not very considerate.

where has consideration gone these days?

why is it non-existent??

no one understand that you should hold the door for the one behind you. or put your turn signal on to let those behind you have a head’s up what your planning to do.

but NO. no one lets people know their plans, or anything… why?

pure selfishness.

 

its amazing what is considered selfish these days. its amazing how people can call others selfish for not putting themselves out for others, but yet. they do worse. they are more selfish than any other.

hypocrites rule the world.

in the highest places hypocrites dwell.

I’m sick of it, and I am supposed to deal with it??

I am to “turn the other cheek,”

I am to “have patience for them who know not…”

well, when will things turn around?

I wonder things. maybe I shouldn’t.

I think too much. thinking turns into actions…

maybe the more I think on things that work me up, maybe one day I will act on it.

try to make a difference myself…

but not with myself. that’s the dangerous part.

I am to be an example… that’s how I should be making a difference…

but if I am not careful. I will set another example that is much easier to follow. a bad example.

and that isn’t what I want.
