Blessed Life

 Blessed Life

Everything worthwhile is up hill
and the Son shines there the brightest.
A blessed life gives life,
abundantly,
continually,
without fail.
A blessed life lets you follow
a stream of comfort when you are low
and makes your faith grow and grow.
It lets you leave the darkness behind
to follow the light.
It takes you from the end
and brings you to a newness
you could never comprehend,
unless you had seen it.
Your problem meets your best life,
with your blessed life,
cries with joy and surrenders all.
At the core is the source of all life
and whatever you lose
will come right back to you.
That is a blessed life.

Stuff

Stuff

Stuff's just stuff
nothing much
can be realised
with stuff.
More money, cars and so much stuff
just not enough
to keep you satisfied.
Stuff gets damaged
stuff gets destroyed
stuff doesn't matter
when they become your toys.
Stuff is a choice of whether you have enough
Stuff are just stuff
in the end,
they do not matter.

Revolution (I’m Willing to Fight)

Revolution (I'm Willing to Fight)

All the way up
I' willing to fight.
Who knows what's right
When it's your very life
at the stakes.
Death seems a shadow
vanguisehd by the light
that suddeny
bursts inside your head.

Fear is dead
in the fight to thrive
in a system that seeks
to lock you in
landlocked.
The enemy is within
your own camp.

Must I draw my weapon
show you my mettle to tear
you down?
After all, you don't care.

Wait

Wait

Now wait.
Wait,
wait the livelong day,
the steps may be shorter here
and you may fall.
you may be tired
but wait.
it's hard 
when the way is cloudy
and everything seems in vain,
wait.
The waiting is hard
but wait.

You move premature
grab at straws,
fall,
into detours
that make you obscure.

Wait,
and while you wait,
pray.

Dis ease

Dis ease

Discomfort
disagrees,
causes dismay
and distrust
causing dislike.

Dis ease
disconnects
disgracefully,
dismisses
disintoxication
disrespectfully.
makes you its slave.

Dis ease in the body
will make you sorry
if with it you tarry too long
and make it feel like it belongs.

But For the Grace of God…

But For the Grace of God...

But for the grace of God
there go I...
Broken I am not
defeated no more
I can speak
of past disasters 
that remained untold.
But for the grace of God
I can stand
after sitting in decay
to the Light I prayed
I said yes and was blessed
for I could have been like the rest
forgotten,
downtrodden, 
but my weakness I confessed
and by grace finished the test.
Now I know,
but for the grace of God
there I go.

To Encourage You…

There are times when we need to remember to look beyond the now to the truth of what has always been. So, here are eight way to rethink, and eight encouragements for any situation.

Don’t make yourself small to fit into someone else’s plan

You will shine the brightest once you have learned how to navigate those dark places

You do not fit where you are and so that is where you belong

You can only be a victim if that is the story you sell to yourself

You have to be ready to receive the table that God has prepared for you

Being stuck forces you to get stronger to push those stones out of your way

Hard times are the best times because they challenge how you think so you can finally make real that potential that’s been waiting in the wings.

Changing your location does not solve your problems only you can decide when there are no problems only opportunities.

Your thoughts impact your quality of life
