Wishing for Wings

Have you ever had a dream where you had wings and could fly? Have you ever wished you really did? I know I do. Often! But what’s the point of having wings if you are too afraid to take the leap to fly? Some birds push their young out of the nest and off the branch to force them to fly. We as people can be like that. We have to be forced. Instead we should look around at the other flyers around us, learn from them, take that knowledge, apply it then…take the leap. You can fly, you just haven’t tried.

Blazing Trails

It doesn’t matter what anyone tells you. Have you been told “that’s not possible”, “no one has ever done it”? Blaze your own path. Have you been told “there’s too much on your plate you should take a step back”? Blaze your own path. Have you been told your ideas are silly, unreasonable, impossible, our of your realm of expertise? Blaze your own trail. If we listened to every naysayer we wouldn’t be where we are. So much of our way of life now, especially when it comes to technology, at some point was dismissed. Don’t let anyone dismiss your dream. Set a game plan, time frame & pathway to accomplish it, then blaze your own trail.

Shame Poem

Deep in darkness you stay
Trying to make me lose my way
In the recesses of my mind you rest
Always telling me I don’t deserve the best
Reminding me of all of my regrets
and of all my failed tests
An invisible weight, you rest on my shoulders
turning my heart colder and colder
you cultivate and grow bitterness in my soul
never allowing God to make me whole
so today I tell you shame
you can no longer remain
in my God I am redeemed
and He is giving me back all I ever dreamed
In Him I am made whole
in Him I am bold
I’m a failure & unworthy of love are the lies you told
in Him I’m everything and more
in Him I’m redeemed forevermore
He is my light in the darkness
He loves me despite my life’s mess
Redemption, healing & wholeness over me He spoke
now my life is forever filled with hope!
