City Lights

City lights 
Tight dress on 
Know I’m moving too fast 
But I’d rather drive slow 
Meet me at the diner 
Where we use to go 
Sitting at our same spot 
I want to stay 
But you always want to go 
Don’t go, don’t go city lights
Don’t go, don’t go city light 
One last kiss 
Before I walk into the sunrise 
Sunrise
City lights 
One last kiss 
before I walk into the sun

Need Somebody : A Song of Longing

Photo by Iclea

Waking up with my eyes red

Tired of feeling misunderstood

Some pretend that they love you

but they don’t mean you any good

That’s one lesson my mama thought me

she said “Don’t trust nobody. “

“Soley God only .”

but what happens when you need somebody ?

Somebody to know me

Somebody to hold me down

Maybe she was wrong , maybe she was wrong

because I’m feeling alone

Somebody to know me

Somebody to hold me down

Somebody just to hear me out

I need that somebody, because I’ve grown up now.

Dream Dreamer

Dream deeper

Live lover, grow

Stay with me 

See with me 

How our love does know

That we recognize and memorize 

That which has been imprinted in our hearts

We embark, on a journey

Embarking from the start

Don’t hesitate to dream my love 

We are walking hand in hand

Solid we stand on ground unbreakable 

Love is the more we have

Live with me side to your side

You’re my endearing bond 

Keeping me connected

No harm in your arms

And I was destined to fall

I am walking through the open door

So I dare to dream 

Translucent me

Dreaming candidly 

The intentions of my soul

Landing On Solid Ground

Today I exercise my spiritual authority. I can manage my life. I can withstand the unexpected inconveniences and stressors that may be before me knowing that I have been given the capacity to demonstrate and receive radical love. Also knowing that I have been given the ability to extend fathomless grace to myself and to others.

Today I have been invited to expand my mental real estate. I have been invited to release the tension and heaviness that wants to accrue in my body and experience restored health to my soul.

Today I use my spiritual wherewithal to secure the resources I need to carry out my life’s work assigned to me by the creator.

Today I will move throughout my day with gratitude, peace, joy and in power.

Purpose,Passion and People -Part One



Untitled


My treasure is my passion

Kept in empty containers

Hidden under old mattresses

I’ve been so careful, but careless

Storing up my value

I’ve misplaced that which I love

I retrace my steps

Asking people to help me

Asking God to remind me

Frustrated, I feel hopelessness flooding me

Can I forgive myself ?

Then

In the waiting I found her again

My treasure, my passion

I celebrate

And in my joy I will hold her

And in my life she will never be lost again

Challenged Heart

Distinct growing pains

I’m changing again

Momentous

But am I recognizable ?

Celebrating through the trepidation of having to learn myself again

I remember to be kind to myself

I’m excited and vulnerable

I’m challenged in the unknown

I remember to love intentionally

I’m no longer withdrawn

I’m challenged to love radically

For The Quivering Heart

2 Corinthians 4:8 , 4:16,18 New International Version (NIV)

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

 

Living Your Best Life

Be your authentic self .

This phrase feels good, but what happens when you realize you don’t really know who you are ? How can you then live your best life?

When life events such as a change or loss of a job, marriage, divorce, the death of a loved one, or  health issues, have turned you inside out and your world upside down, it is a challenge to be real when your reality has shifted.

You start to doubt everything. You start to shut down. You don’t recognize yourself anymore.

Finding your identity begins with digging deep and  allowing God  to transform your mind and your heart to bring healing to your soul.

Following a major life event living your best life might look like:

asking for help

being generous

forgiving

being hopeful
