TALK TO ME

What do you think that you know about me? Now what do you really know about me? Not much huh? Social networks provide us with a false sense of intimacy. So you think that you know me based off of pictures that I post, tweets that I share, and text messages that we share. If only it was that easy. I show you what I want you to see. Even though it is the real me, it is not all of me. We no longer take the time to really get to know one another. It's easier to get on Facebook to see what's going on in each other's lives. Yeah, that might be a portion of what's going on in my life, but trust me there is so much more.

 Yes, we are all busy but sometimes a text message just doesn't do it. There is no life in a text message. It brings me so much joy to receive phone calls from special people in my life. I don't see my family as often as I would like so we talk on the phone and skype. They know that I still exist. This is coming from a person that rarely opens up. However, I still prefer to open up over the phone or in person. Many times I write because I don't like opening up in person, but it must be done my friends. Don't expect relationships and friendships to last if you can't communicate with other individuals on a personal level. Real friends and real family make time for the ones that they really want to know about.

SOS-SAVE OUR SOULS


Searching for a church
Has made me so distraught

I mean this can't be
I want to find God easily

Where is the church?
Because I can't find it

Better yet...
What is the church?

So called Christians
With no commitment?

It's become a business
We must grow

More money
For a bigger building

Bigger building
For more people

In and out
Let's get the next group in

You mean....
Just an hour or two will do

You right....
Time is money

Plus we must accommodate
the saints....

The goal....
To fill every seat

But is it the soul
That we are trying to reach?

Meeting goals
But my soul is still lost

You welcome me
But don't even check up on me

Impersonal gifts and letters
barely impress me

But hey...
That's just been my experience

Finally understanding
What's really going on

Now I see....
The church is really me

Bought with a price
I have to share the life

But sharing is no good
If I'm not living it

So I'll keep living
I'll never stop seeking

Narrow is the way
Very few find it.


ROMANS 1;16-UNASHAMED


*There was a time when I couldn't understand why a Christian would stop going to church, but now I know that sometimes God is dealing with us.

LOSING MY GRIP

Sometimes I feel so strong,
Then sometimes I feel so weak.
Even when everything is going great, 
There is always something that could be better.
Every time I try to fill a void,
I'm always left feeling unfulfilled.

Busy with so many things in my life,
But wondering which one is the right thing.
It seems the stronger the desire, 
The harder it is to determine what is right.

I pray and I wait for direction
But waiting is not easy.
This test of patience,
Sometimes drives me crazy.

But I take the good with the bad,
Never will I stop trusting God.
For I know that he has a plan for my life.
Even if his plan isn't my plan,
I still accept his will for me.


FOR I KNOW THE THOUGHTS THAT I THINK TOWARDS YOU, SAITH THE LORD, THOUGHTS OF PEACE, AND NOT OF EVIL, TO GIVE YOU AN EXPECTED END.
- JEREMIAH 29;11
