Wanting things to be a little bit different ...

I've been waiting for spring, and, here, it's in its first week, and still the temperature is barely above freezing and tonight it will drop as low as 19 °F. 



This morning, a light dusting of snow was coating the ground. 



I thought with spring, immediately things would be a little bit different around here. 



It isn't so.



I suppose I need to journal a little bit, too, on my recovery. 



I don't really view myself as recovering, or being in… Continue

He is All I need.

It's cold, 18 °F, and Winter Storm Titan's wave of ice and snow showers has passed, leaving behind it an accumulation of several inches, and this morning's glare of bright sunlight was very reflective off of it, blinding, but also very misleading, as its rays were emanating no warmth and a bitterly harsh wind was blowing. 



I praised God that I and my family were safe and warm. 



I praised God for Who He is, His power and greatness, as I read through Psalm 135.

I find it hard to rest.

I have lost faith and trust in people. I must force myself, pressure myself to do things. I think now that suppressing bad memories is actually not a bad thing, and I wish I could return to that state of mind. Dwelling on negative experiences and the painful emotions they bring up will cause post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression, but it's too late now for me. What's done is done.



I set small goals and focus on what I can do. When Sunday comes, I want to go to… Continue

Hard things from your heart

Snowy weather returned last night and several inches blanketed the ground and trees by morning, making a stark contrast set against the blue sky.



Clouds were dissipating and the sun was out but it was still very cold, 26°F.



It's been one of those days when I can't seem to get warm. 



My devotion today said to "speak the hard things from your heart to the Lord."



When you're depressed, you live by sight, and then life is a very cold and dark place, and… Continue

Something else is more important.

I'm so very aware that I've been in some ruts and that, while God may accept me for who I am, God doesn't want to leave me the way I am. He doesn't want me staying in these same ruts that I've been in for many months now.



I think the best quote I've run across so far regarding fear is one that I've only recently read: "Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."



For me, that something else must become my… Continue

Poem: Called To Worship (III)

As a Child of God, you're blessed with favor,
since you're a joint-heir with our Savior.
Don't be "eaten up" with unending discontent;
know that He has promised to keep His covenant!
So regardless of the latest, spiritual deluge,
in the Lord, you'll always find safety and refuge.
Relief for your earthly suffering is coming,
provided to Him your heart-felt requests you bring.
Despite your painful past,…

Poem: Contemplating the Lord’s Prayer

O Lord, holy is Your Name!
As one of Your many children,
my inheritance I openly claim.


Willingly I lift my voice in praise,
thankful for Your new mercies
and the warmth of the sun's rays.
 

With genuineness of heart
and a simplicity of words,
I desire for Your kick start...


to begin this glorious day,
as I'm covered with blessings,
and faith's fragrant…

Poem: Etched In Stone

Ongoing studies of Egyptian history

demonstrate lessons can still be learned.

Their oversized achievements were possible,

by having its peoples’ hearts turned…

to the idea of a national identity.

Around the Nile’s life giving source,

the commonality of personal survival

eventually produced an effective workforce.

Since times of Middle Eastern antiquity,

the annual flooding of the coastal plains

created the opportunities to trade away

the…

Poem: Transformation

O Lord, I know in my heart,

that I can be truly transformed

from impure and tainted thinking,

when my spirit is daily reborn.

Cleanse my mind, my thoughts

and raise my eyes unto Thee;

alter my vision regarding…

everything that I may see.

Renew in me a fresh heart;

modify my ungodly behavior;

keep me solely focused on the…

permanent work of my Savior!

Spark my being with the Divine;

rekindle my love of Your Word;

rejuvenate the…

Poem: Rejoice in Everything!

O Lord, my God and Heavenly King,

my heart continues to rejoice;

for You alone are worthy of praise!

I honor Thee with my poetic voice.

Despite the scars of emotional hurt,

that constantly seek to swallow me up,

I know that You are nearby, having…

sipped from Your sacrificial cup.

Patiently, I wait, shedding anxieties

about my earthly troubles and circumstance.

Joyfully, I petition Thee with prayers,

thankful that You are… Lord of the…

Poem: Tears of Contrition

Circumcise my sinful heart completely,

cutting away the unnecessary leaven;

give me Christ's aching heart for others,

that they may hear the message of Heaven.

Consume my existence with Your Presence;

permit my measure of faith to expand;

train my tongue the fervency of prayer;

demonstrate O Lord, the working of Your Hand.

As a Child of promise with sober reflection,

allow me to share Your anguish for the lost.

Wash over me with the wisdom to…

Poem: Destiny Helpers

Many have heard that "No man is an island."

And over most circumstances, no one has control.

So I ask you... "Have you found purpose for your life?"

"With your identity, are you fulfilling your role?"

Escape the snare of delusional grandeur,

for God Almighty has an assignment for you.

Are you prepared with your life skills

and has your Kingdom mission come into view?

Previous individuals came to you (before me)

and broke the fallow ground of your…

Poem: Temptations

Why is it, that the vilest of temptations

seek to violate my mind, during moments…

of weakness, solitude and prayer time?

Is it not enough that my inner person

has been consumed with the filth of my flesh?

How much longer must I wait for the body

of incorruption that will suit me in eternity?

Though I can’t seem to stop sinning,

is it wrong to want to curb its unwanted flow?

These temptations appeal to my carnality,

but I find their continuing stream…
