Be The Change – yes you!!

So today is a big deal, I get it, we all get it. However today saddens me, from what I see online & talking to people it saddens almost everyone.

The best is yet to come

From the darkest of nights Dawns the brightest of days The best is yet to come   Fear is real, tangible Yet I will not listen to it I am no longer a slave to such things   Hope is my dawn Faith is my armor A new day, is what awaits

Afraid For The Future

I’m no politician, no expert, I find the whole thing so utterly distasteful & corrupt that I try to stay away. I live my life the best I can (most of the time), enjoy myself & try to make a small positive impact in the world. Yet at times it is hard to ignore it... Continue Reading →

2 Sides, Perspective

Sometimes I wish I was offended or repulsed by things that don't bother me I wish the effects of my damaged past were not still so evident in the choices I freely make Why do I sin? What is sin anyway? Is it really just bad words or lust? Or is it hurting people? What... Continue Reading →

The Feelings of a Victim

Fear of confrontation You have no right You have no worth This is what you deserve   Emasculated through neglect Fear driven to the core through punishment Don’t respond, don’t be angry, turn the other cheek You don’t deserve your anger, your pain   Don’t defend, it will only provoke Make things worse, you are...

Just Some Bloke

What if I really am just some bloke? What if Spielberg doesn’t spot me in Wal-Mart Saying I’m the superstar he’s been waiting to discover?   What if my ramblings are just that? Not literary genius just waiting for Oxford head brass To say this is the one, the one we’ve been searching for?  ... Continue Reading →

Do Not Cross

The recent sermon series at my church was titled The Power of Everybody. It is no surprise to me that I loved it (I love all the series my church does), but this one particularly spoke to me, and not that there was a doubt, showed me once again why God moved the way He... Continue Reading →

Fear

So why write and record music & place it on my blog? One word; fear. I have lived with a crippling fear of rejection for most of my life. There was not one giant incident that caused this, it was built from the cumulative effect of many small things over many years. The fear of... Continue Reading →

Can’t Watch the News

As the chaos of the world moves closer & closer to home I had no choice but to reengage & find out what was going on As my heart breaks & my soul bleeds I fear for my child & the world she is going to have to live in Such unspeakable horrors Everyday, in... Continue Reading →

Almost suicide

Do you know what it is like To hold a knife to your stomach To want with every fiber of your being to push it through To see the blood & intestines run out To find out in that moment if anybody really cares Then to hate yourself even more because you couldn’t do it?... Continue Reading →

The armor of God

So God was talking to me in church this morning, I almost called it a vision, but in that it wasn’t visual I’ll go with God was talking to me.  How does God talk to me? Usually through thoughts implanted in my mind by His Spirit. How do I know they’re not my thoughts? You’ll... Continue Reading →
