What started out as just a little snippet of encouragement on one page is now an ebook! If you are in a cold season in your relationship with God, read this book and “Come in from the cold!” Check it out, it is on Amazon or wherever you get your ebooks.

Sometimes, we need details on the what and how of relating to God and embracing the love that He offers.

If my mind could forge a thought to be thunk

My mouth would have trouble releasing such dribble

Life is not linear yet winding in most ways

Flipping my insides until they’re strewn outside

My mouth would have trouble releasing such dribble

For my heart endures parity wrecked bass and treble

Flipping my insides until they’re strewn outside

Refusing the malady and melancholy of others I contrive to unwind

For my heart endures parity wrecked bass and treble

Bending my ear to my lowest space listening for melody’s pace

Refusing the malady and melancholy of others I contrive to unwind

For at my center is my soul made whole

Bending my ear to my lowest space listening for melody’s pace

Life is not linear yet unwinding in most ways

For at my center is my soul made whole

If my mind could forge a thought to be thunk

Who could explain 

The tears in one’s eyes

No brain could conceive

The terror that racks the soul

Striking at the core of the stories untold

Repudiating emotional weakness’ lies

Fortify that passion aroused on the inside

Air it in the gait of your stroll

Who could explain

Looking for the prize of the highs

There’s no denying historic rise

Hearkening ears unable to discern sounds

Refusing to shuffle or labor bemoaned

Emerging against the cynicism around

Who could explain

Arising from the clay

I’m here to have a say

What will I relay

I’m going to pray

 

For the sound was sent

As my image was cast

Like a water fount

I will shoot up

 

Doing what I’ve never done

Or only done obscure

Unaccompanied ee

Knowing that I’ve shone

 

For the clay

Was my mainstay

Before His hands

Shaped me

 

I can never go back

To who I was before He

Wanting to see the sky

Above it, I’ll elevate

 

The sky releases the sound

 

Rise

Unafraid

Rise

Speaking Aloud

Rise

 

From within

The power of the word

Causes this clay to rattle

As my feet begin to scramble

The ground beneath me

Seems to push against me

 

Arise Girl

Heaven’s waiting

Arise Lady

Your time is swaying

Arise Woman

You’re oblation

Arise Daughter

You’re My Vision

Arise…

I’m dead to living a lie

Being on standby

Watching my dreams drive by

So you can fly

 

I’m dead to being less of me

Giving my best to thee

Because I chose not to be

What I know to be

 

I’m dead to skirting my words

Easing your burden

Forgetting I’m flirtin’

With Kamikaze’s sword

 

Your words won’t frame

For they don’t contain

My real me

Seeping out from my enemy

 

I refuse that part

Of this destructive story

That seeks to make me a victim

And a martyr

 

Dead is lifeless

Dead is hopeless

No use in speaking with a dummy

I just don’t have the tummy

 

No light in sight

No song to be sung

Here we end

At the Reaper’s bend

 

I’m looking at you

You’re looking at me

Without words spoken

With nothing exchanged

 

Adieu

Without anything due

The only echo heard is the scripture read

‘Let the dead bury the dead’

Removed

Discouraged

Your eyes tell me more than your words can say

 

Downcast

Withdrawn

My heart feels the pain of yours

Swollen

Darting

My eyes are awakening in the dark

 

Fierce

Resolved

My mind shifts to where you are

 

Looking into your eyes

I saw the pain

Seeing the depth of the well

I knew far too well

 

Setting my will to think

You will not sink

For you I will not lose

You are not alone

 

I have looked

Into your eyes

And saw your truth
