Thank you

 Thank you for encouraging this heart of mine. The way you love me is something I can’t repay. Thank you for giving me a smile today. 



Thank you

For another day

Please rid me

Of the anxiety

That is racking

My mind and body

Monday, April 25, 2022


As I sit here, I was reminded of someone’s words yesterday. My gift is not for my benefit. It’s for others. It’s for His glory. These past few weeks have been anything but stellar. I’m realizing I still need help, whether I want it or not. This has been one of the hardest things to accept. When the world preaches independence, I let myself fall into the trap. I’m not normal. Never will be. This hurts my pride like no other, but in order to grow…. The pride got kicked to the curb in embarrassing fashion, and help is a necessity. Whether my writing still is the gift God intended, I can only hope. If you will humble me with your prayer, I’d be grateful. 

Good morning

 Good morning 

Still recovering 

Going slower

Than I’d like

Tell me

What is making 

You smile

 I contemplated not posting. I’m under the weather. Ricola and I are in a relationship this week. My mind has been working overtime and not in a good way. I need prayers that my pride doesn’t impede progress. Trying to do it all myself is having unnecessary consequences. There is no eloquence. Just raw and unfiltered

A word

 My life

Should be

A proclamation

Of what this

Holy Week 


In Your Word

The sinner

Is forgiven

And life

Is lived

With divine purpose

And grace

That is

Given freely

Every day

Let my worship

Be one 

That glorifies



My own selfish ambition
