The Roars

John 19

Posted on January 26, 2017 at 5:25 PM Comments comments (0)
This first post of 2017 comes from a day of no motivation with a slight pinch of indifference. This was the day when God would eradicate all of that with the most beautiful and brutal part of my faith as a Christian; the Cross. As I read through John 19, it hit me once again how great the sacrifice, the grace, the price, the love. And there went the apathy. Thank You, Jesus, for the Cross. Thank You, Lord, for letting me behold Your glory again. ~~~ You were flogged for me. Mocked repea... Read Full Post »

To Weep and to Worship

Tear stains on my glasses

Smile for the masses

Everyone expects it.

 

The classic, "I'm okay" with a happy emoticon

For if you say you're not, you've sinned,

You've committed a grave wrong

 

Yet, I've read my Bible cover to cover

And those are verses I have ye...

Inherited Insecurity

Check out the (rough) audio of this poem here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEZswZpSH7A


My smiling lips and yet sad eyes are only the tip of the iceberg for this person that you see

Beneath my everything that makes me me

Is my inherited insecurity


Melanin has rendered my skin darker

And has subjected me to the darkness of humanity

The depths of how devastating misinterpret...

Soulmate

Hey everyone !


So, in our culture, there is a lot of emphasis on finding your "soulmate". But, I've come to realise that the creator of my soul is my soulmate. Think about it, Ephesians 1:4-5 says:


Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave hi...

It Is Finished

Hey y'all!


It's Good Friday, the day we choose to really reflect upon and remember Jesus' death on the Cross for our sins. Here's a poem that I wrote earlier this week that I felt should be shared today; It Is Finished.


 

The cross hanging from my neck is heavier than anyone will ever know.

When I wear it,

It's not my status as a Christian that I'm attempting to show.


How could I ever show-off my salvation?

Confession

Hey all <3


This is a poem that I wrote - according to my IPod - 604 days ago, though it feels like just yesterday because a lot of the emotions still ring true. I guess that's because we are never truly done confessing to Him. We will always have things to bring to Him.


Proceed with Caution: this poem is not filled with pretty emotions, but it's honest. I was debating whether to post it or not, when the Holy Spirit nudged me and used someone in my life t...

This Joy

Posted on March 10, 2014 at 3:05 AM Comments comments (0)

1 Thessalonians 5:16 tells us to "Always be joyful" (NLT).


A lot of the time, this verse is skipped over for those that follow it as someone preaches about prayer and thankfulness.


Or, it may be skipped over because it seems too difficult.  


Come on, who can honestly stand up and say that you've always been joyful?
