Wednesday wondering…

This morning, I woke up with my thoughts bouncing all over the place. My mind races from the state of the church, what God has to say to me personally, to Adele and then back. Our minds are strange this way, we somehow build connections and references without ever acknowledging it. Are we so caughtContinue reading “Wednesday wondering…”

The stupid church…

“His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.”‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭56:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ I listened to a teaching at a prayer congress today. It made my heart repentant and sorrowful for my part in the laziness and complacent nature of today’s church.  Holy SpiritContinue reading “The stupid church…”

To my lover…

You awaken the depths of my soul and breathe life into my weathered existence. Your lips press against mine and your words spill out of me.  Your eyes lineup with mine and you change my vision of the world, of my past, of myself. You love me so completely and with so much fervor thatContinue reading “To my lover…”

As her heart speaks…

Words do no justice For as her heart speaks Her soul cries out strength Though her flesh is weak Though emotions overtake her And life seems to get her down Jesus never leaves her He’s always to be found His love is her heart’s song His grace a melody loud His love is for theContinue reading “As her heart speaks…”

The other daughter…

I’m the other daughter. I’m the one that didn’t happen to be born in the cocoon of a happy marriage as my other siblings and I underwent a much more complex developmental process.

Harlot to Help Meet (Day 63 – 100 Days of Singleness)

And behold, a woman comes to meet him, Dressed as a harlot and cunning of heart. She is boisterous and rebellious, Her feet do not remain at home; “Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with caresses. With her many persuasions she entices him; With her flattering lipsContinue reading “Harlot to Help Meet (Day 63 – 100 Days of Singleness)”

So you think you’re the one?! (Day 37 – 100 Days of Singleness)

Most people LOVE the chase… A person will pursue you to the ends of the earth just for the thrill of the chase. We have to be careful not to mistake persistence with destiny. Not everyone that desires you, deserves you. A man that isn’t led by God should not be expected to lead you.Continue reading “So you think you’re the one?! (Day 37 – 100 Days of Singleness)”

No more locked doors!!! – Pursuing Purity (Day 26 – 100 Days of Singleness)

I know he/ she is no good for me but… Stop right there! Anything that follows this phrase is a sorry excuse of a reason to stay and you know it. I know as the song says, “he ain’t no good but it feels so good”. I know and have experienced the pleasure of sin,Continue reading “No more locked doors!!! – Pursuing Purity (Day 26 – 100 Days of Singleness)”
