Good to Go

 

Stepping out without breathing in…  taking that first step, where it all begins

To go without, one searches within… needing more than him, feels like a sin

Bags packed, hat tipped at the brim… Painstaking thoughts come on a whim.

No looking back, no other option… Found the path to my destination.

Knowing this chapter has to end…  Where everything else begins.

HIS-STORY IN THE MAKING!

 

A Soaring Sight

FAIR GAME DAY

What a soaring sight, birds of a feather, once flocked to be caught by the fowler together
Wings weighted in squalor in a world full of muck
In proclivities of a poverty mindset found stuck
Unworthy vessels in light, now seen fit in His sight
Sanctified and set free, take toward the sky in flight

Game over for the love of my past days … now I’m ever looking forward to the sun going down, gracefully on a Sunday night!

ONWARD AND UPWARD TO FACE THE NEW WEEK I TAKE FLIGHT

I have a new Sunday night game.

The love I once had cannot compare to the love I have found. There is more than one way to express it. On top of that there is more than one level and way to experience it. In the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual realm…I can feel it, see it, and give it, because I have received it.

I did, once upon a time fall in and out of love but that, incidentally, was not the true love for which I was meant. It was a just a feeling through times endured and well spent.

Now into a new chapter, I experience it through a place that I have arrived each morning. It’s more than a memory I can’t let go of, a treasure I pursue, a pleasure I indulge in… it’s more than a pain and trial, it is a gift from God.

It is my opened relationship to Him and all He has given me to do for YOU every day. Each day is now filled with one single full heart longing to serve at a table for two.

This morning’s revelation…

A fruitful love is one that is shared!

 

A More “Uh-peeling” ME

The Unveiling Nature of Love

It’s no secret, without regret… I’ve decided since we’ve met, it’s time to peel back some skin.

He purges the urges… to search any further without going deeper within.

Skimming the surface, He sees that I’m nervous… but let the exfoliation begin!

The thoughts have been daunting because I know what I’m wanting requires much more digging in.

It’s both truth and dare that I start this, I was alone in the darkness… no time for games, now it’s just me and Him.

His light pierces through the layers of all the nay-sayers, for what no longer exists… is separation

Love reveals and changes everything…

 

Getting the Message

Words for the Weak

Retracing my steps along the shoreline.

No longer lost, just passing time.

The message easily missed, while in search of a sign.

His ear to my heart, is always inclined.

The whispered answer to my question

“He knows that you’re mine”

Psalm 23: 3

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 

And verse 5

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

When I ask why the fight for love has to be such a battle and I want to retreat, God is there to remind me why it has to be such a fight. The enemy knows who I belong to and so… I can only rejoice. That’s why he tries, with all his lies and tactics to steal and destroy. He sought me in the desert, and the dimly lit secret places I went to hide and escape. He makes every effort and still takes aim in the midst of the week, but discernment is a gift given to help determine which voice I hear speak.

Don’t just stand there… the message is ready to be received. I am glad it’s where it can be retrieved. Thank you Lord for putting Wednesday where you did to help me survive another day and the end of this…. WEAK!

At his table… my cup is replenished!

 

 

While I Wait…

Ready, Set, Rise

When the sun is set… and the day melts away… COME WHAT MAY!

With the setting sun comes a single thought… of anything left that has not been bought. My mind draws a blank, for there’s nothing there, no worry, fear or unaddressed care. It’s all been purchased and carried away… to be handled by another, so come what may.

With the rising sun…  the day has just begun… SEE THE LIGHT!

As I look forward to the morning’s new cup of tea, I also look forward to the company. Time to rise to the challenge of a brand new day, what’s in store is more than I can say.  He knows and sees all, from the very first light… to the darkest hours that fill the night

His cup, it overflows with all the need but He listens and answers as if He’s just with me. There is comfort in trusting He knows all that I need and every thing that He started…

He will surely complete

On the edge of the shore… ask once more… DO YOU LOVE ME? He says… I DO! 

 HIS LOVE is enough to WAIT

As I think and ponder on every written word and deliberate on all the things I’ve heard, what He has whispered I can not forget, He’s been telling me since the day we met. Before you knew me… I have always known you and I’m here to stay… forever with you!

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” PSALM 27: 14

Seasoned Beauty

Becoming Changed

Time passed pressing in

Pushing out what’s within

Constricted to move in this fight

must breakthrough to the light

Wings built under pressure

The painful process I treasure

Now freed to take flight

What a beautiful sight

Seen in a season of change

                                               Thoughts on His Beauty and Creation

Flutter by thoughts

#BEAUTIFUL

Thoughts are like butterflies meant to give us evidence that there is beauty in change,

but we often let them flutter by… and so our perception remains the same.

A beautiful time of day for you to join me…. my morning drive with tea on the go!

I am enjoying the last few days of summer traffic… a new school season is upon us.

More to learn… Are you ready for the change? I know I am. Hello Yellow!!!

“Change in all things is sweet”

Sleepless Seasons…My Many Reasons

Confessions and Expressions of a Night Owl

It’s that time again… late to bed. It’s just all the thoughts still caught in my head. Just me.

Another night and good morning the facade passed their test.
Inner view eyes heavy laden, my heart under duress.
Unresolved anxious queries leave one without rest.
Time is unyielding to the need to progress.
Going where awards go to the show “er” up “er”s best dressed
Though alarm clocks stopped sounding I am somehow sleepless

Feet upon pavement pounding,
Each day brings a quest.
The question worth asking sits still
and we move on to the next.
Ask not and have not,
And so I am put to the test.
In whom shall I trust, do you humbly suggest?
Won’t the clock soon stop ticking? This is why I sleep less.

The race that I’m running,
it seems it’s endless.
While others make the marathon appear effortless.
I seek escape at the ninth mile to be laid to rest.
All the while, deliberating increases my weariness
My shoes, I am re-lacing, though I’d like to walk less.
Intentionally sleep walking improves my sleep less.
