Sin Births Deep Wounds

love_heart_broken_enameled-svg
In the moment,
it feels like love.
The hugs, the kisses, the staring deeply into each other’s eyes,
it feels like love.
Even afterwards,
laying in each other’s arms, basting in the joy of the desires of the flesh satisfied through physical acts…
it feels like love.
But the reality is…
The Spirit recognizes it as counterfeit,
as a separation from God
that leaves an unbearable emptiness on the inside
The emptiness highlights every negative feeling inside.
The insecurity, the loneliness, the faithlessness, the weaknesses, the shame, the depression…
every LIE from the enemy
that leaves an emotional and spiritual hole in the heart.
The struggle is real…
Even in the midst of it all,
He knows how we continually fall
to sin
and do exactly what we don’t want to do.
But He opens His arms and protects us anyway;
that is love.
The Grace, the mercy, the constant fight between the flesh and the spirit,
that is love.
In Every moment,
thanks be to God, for
He IS Love!

—————————————-

I Found

The Love of my life
You are my friend.
The Love of my life,
But are you a dude I can depend
On?                           
The Love of my life,
But how can there be a happily ever after if right now I’m not happy
Ever
Even after
Walks in the park,
Movies, drinks and Hanging out past dark.
Emotional rollercoaster going up and down
Mental merry-go-round spinning ’round ‘n ’round
But I found
The Love of my life
You are my friend.
The Love of my life
Waiting
Until you are transformed into a dude I can depend
On
The Love of my life,
But there will be a happily ever after
As soon as you become happy
With who you are for-ever
After
He renews the Spirit in you.
The Love of my life.

SUNSETS



IMG_1706
I’ve been wrecking my mind
Just trying to define
The beauty that I see
When the sun is staring at me
Just before it emits its greatest shine
Signaling that it’s completed its time
For this day.

But the words escape me
This indescribable glory that be
Stretching across the horizon like
Those famous across the court dunks by Mike
Listening to the sun’s last cry before it falls
Into the darkness that engulfs all
In the night.

Sleepless Wandering

sleeping is so hard

I lie awake at night,
sleepless,
because so many thoughts run through my head.
I am empty inside,
heartbroken,

because you let me run away from you.

My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.

Why did you have to do it?
Why did you have to say it?

Why did you have to mean so much to me?

Why?

I didn’t need your hello.
I didn’t won’t your goodbye.
I couldn’t stand your….look into my eyes,

“I’m going to miss you.”

Why?

Why did you have to mean so much to me?
Why did you have to say it?

Why did you have to do it?

My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.

Because you pushed me away from you,
heartbroken,
I am empty inside.
Because the thoughts won’t turn off in my head,
sleepless,
I lie awake at night.
