    I have always enjoyed solitude. Taking long strolls in quiet neighborhoods or just sitting alone and thinking. I love being awake in the darkness dwelling on the peace and quiet the night time brings. My mind is always on an express trip going beyond the present and visible. Often times i’m an emotional mess,I have to take time away to regroup.

     A couple of days back my mind became a tangled mess freestyling into nothingness, my schedule was too busy for a stroll and my nights became noisy so I went to a place I knew somehow I would find the peace that I sought.

    One of the reasons I love going to the scriptures is because its so relatable.

    So I opened up a psalm to read, it was like the words came to life jumping right at me. You see, this was a psalm I had read a couple of times but somehow on that day it got me like “for real?”,”How did you know what I was thinking?!”,”wait!!!thought it was just me”and on and on.

    It opened my mind to see troubled and broken men who found grace in the face of I AM and I came to understand that there wasn’t a time I AM did not come through.
    That alone sparked up my dose of confidence that when I get tossed in the wind admidst the rain, I could  always find peace in the one that turns things in time and rhythm. I AM.

Dear God

Dear God,
Am writing you today because lately I’ve been feeling pressure from every side.
I’ve been trying to fix a lot of things,
Making things make sense.
I’ve been trying so hard God,
I know I should be letting go and letting you
But deadlines staring me in the face
I don’t know what to do.
Dear God, can you please calm this storm within me?

God,
You know sometimes faith becomes work,
And doubt crawls in like ivy
Forcing its way into the smallest cracks of my defenses,
When that voice keep saying:
“No you can never get this”
When the fear of “what ifs…” Rears its head like the afternoon sun coming through a stained glass window,
When I struggle with the need for control.
Please God
Give me strength and remind me I am not in this alone!!!

Lord,
As the day goes by
My needs keep piling.
So am wondering,
Should I keep asking?
Because,
The more I keep asking the more I keep wanting.
Its so confusing.

I know sometimes I don’t deserve all that I ask for
Because I keep failing you
But I need you
I need you like a thirsty pilgrim
I need you God
I need you in all this.

Finally dear God,
How have you been?

Its me
Christy

My Soul was quiet

My street was loud
Deafening song ripped through the city block,
But God was not in the guitar.
Music blasted through,
But God was not in the radio
Yelling cut the thick air,
But God was not in their teaching.
Phony laughter shouted through the streets,
But God was not in the television.
Then I heard a still,small voice telling me that God loves me.
And my soul was quiet.

God is Always Beside You

With faith in your heart,
Reach out for God’s hand
And accept what He sends,
Though you can’t understand…
For Our Father in Heaven
Always knows what is best,
And if you trust in His Wisdom
You life will be blessed…
For always remember that
Whatever betide you
You are never alone
For God is ALWAYS beside you

God never plows in the soul of man
Without intention, purpose and plan

So whenever you feel
The plow’s sharp blade
Let not your heart be sorely afraid,
For,like the farmer,
God chooses a field
For which He expects
An excellent yield…

So rejoice though your heart
Be broken in two–
God seeks to bring forth
A rich harvest in you

God’s love is like an island
In life’s ocean vast and wide-
A peaceful,quiet shelter from
The restless,rising tide…
God’s love is like a fortress,
And we seek protection there
When the waves of tribulation
Seem to drown us in despair…
God’s love is like a beacon burning
Bright with faith and prayer
And through the changing scenes of life
We can find a haven there.

I said I wouldn’t
Yet I still
I don’t want to
Yet I do
I promise
I still fail
I don’t know why
Yes,am a little confused here
Its a wonder
How I manage to do
What I so despise
I go back again
And do the same
Again,I’ve lost today.
So I ask
How do I win tomorrow’s battle?
