They are not your tragedy

 

They are not your tragedy

Shield the little girls hide them from your cruelty, they don’t need their innocence being robbed away,

Let children be children allow them to play, run around don’t ruin their fate,

Allow them to play while it is yet day,

Allow them to run and climb, don’t shut out your mistakes into their existence,

They are here now and they are golden, precious diamonds,

Many babes have so much dirt cover them that they lose their true self

Growing up with a false image of who they really are,

Don’t mold your child’s mind with negativity,

Instead speak life, declare the greatness you want your child to become

For God ordain that they be great and leaders of tomorrow,

Allow these babies to grow.

Thank you for the Cross

Thank you for the cross

On the cross you stood bleeding, every drop representing your endless love towards me,

Me, the thief who was by your side, me the spiteful soldier who pierced your side,

Me who said let him die,

You still chose to die for me; your obedience set me free,

I was the one, who didn’t choose you, laughed and scorned you, took the whip to strike your back,

And I was the one, who betrayed you with a kiss,

And today who got my back, who promises me eternal bliss?

Who would lay down his life for me like this? Bless me even when I deserved to be cursed,

I didn’t love you but you loved me first, kept and protected me through birth,

You loved me first… died for me when I didn’t deserve it,

All the pain and shame you bore it,  you  took it,

You were bruised for my iniquities, my sins,

Wounded for my transgressions,

Today I stand in admiration, and I salute the greatest hero,

My Lord who died for this zero,

I am, eternally thankful that you obeyed,

And chose to die for this cruel world,

Came to save every boy and every girl,

I stand thankful and I am looking forward to

His second coming!

Dare to live and not just exist,sat back in my chair and watched people live, run,laugh, and love,life seemed to be passing me by like a train living winds of hopelessness. A yearning was stirred within me,I realized that  i really love life and i love people and i want more than just embrace routines and schedules. i wanna ruffle your sheets with my  wild perspectives of life and how simple it really is. Fun realization,

Embrace your Greatness

Whatever the enemy meant for evil God do turn it around for good.

Jane walked into her bosses office to carry out some assigned task and within a few minutes her boss Mark started playing music very loudly even dancing  to it, Jane as amused as she was couldn’t resist to state that the music playing was the one needed in the store, immediately Jane”s boss snapped at her,” you have been saying that for so long,why don’t you take the initiative and add the music on the disk so that it can be played”

Jane stared back in shock, Mark continued” I want to put the music on the disk but i do not know how,but that’s the difference between us,I am not a follower, you will be a follower but I am going to learn to put the music on there!”

” I am not a follower” Jane grumbled turning away from her bosses spiteful gaze,Mark continued, “I am sure you know how its done, you are smart enough,went to College, so you must research how it is done and not just stand by!”

Jane felt she could slap the smirk off his face, she felt so disrespected yet she felt speechless as if the words were some what true,she left his office rather dejected as Mark sat at his desk laughing.

She saw him as an evil agent sent by the enemy to put her down, Jane was on a road to self growth and motivation, convincing her self that she was strong,better than she was months ago and on her way to being a leader. She prayed in her heart binding all his negativity against her, declaring that she was great, a leader not a follower and she was going to make it in spite of how she presently felt. The words Mark said was stuck on replay in her mind, was that how she was being seen? She wanted so desperately to change,his words began to add fuel to her hunger to change,improve and prove him wrong.

Minutes after she still sat struggling with a disturbed state of thought, and then she saw an email from Mark, he stated that he wanted the others to show her how the music is uploaded to the disk, and he encouraged her to learn new things as knowledge is power.He further stated that he wanted her to teach him when shes done.

Jane smiled as she realized that her boss only wanted the best  for  her, he saw her potential and therefore refused to settle for her mediocrity, he knew she could do it, she just had to believe in her self first.

Self motivation is good, we often convince ourselves that we are good enough until we are given the test to prove ourselves, sometimes we let fear cripple our potential, we are afraid of being our great selves so we live below our expectations just to get by,shyly unnoticed. but  i am here to encourage someone including myself that we were not born to be ordinary individuals, we were not created just to exist work a 8 to 5 job  and just make ends meet. If you  were created just to exist God wouldn’t keep sending people to motivate you to try and work harder to become better.

You are great, an extraordinary person with a unique task,chosen to change the world and make a difference. You seek to grow and make positive changes in your life because God is going to use you as a changing tool, you are a natural born leader,stop fighting your greatness,embrace it,become it.

Change

Change

My reflections somehow caged in this bottle, stuck in a liquid form of oppression and disgust I am at it again,

Early  hours of the morning breaking promises time and time again, I promise I am going to change,

Yes! This time I will pass the bar straight and won’t cancel our dates, I will break the habit because I can see that you are hurting, I see the pain on your face, I want to change that,

As a matter of fact tonight is the last time I’ll drink,

It hasn’t helped in making me better but worst the sting of alcohol what a curse,

I hate what it does to us, and what it does to me, to the hang overs and regrets there is no remedy.

So I am going to change my ways and become better,

Fight off the old spirits and dance in the walls of sobriety

Yes I am stepping out a new me.

I will change, no longer be a nuisance in society,

I will be my best self.
