God asked me a question one day that had me at a standstill,
“Why do you write?”
He’s been asking me that for awhile now, but more frequently this week, and normally I would’ve been able to come up with an answer. No hesitation or anything.
But this time,
This time I was unable to give a true (and certain) response.
So, I just gave a generic one instead, “Because I love to write. Writing is my passion, it’s what I love to do.”
God being God, He’s not one to fall for the lies we tell other people. You know what I mean. We have a tendency to try and throw up smokescreens to try and cover up and hide what’s really going on. Well, God sees past our smokescreen and the masks we wear; He sees our hearts and those things we attempt to hide even from ourselves.
Here’s the feature poem from this past Sunday’s 4SON (4th Sunday Open mic Night). Be sure to like and share it, and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel on YouTube!
Originally I planned to put up another piece today called Dear Brother, but after reading it over it a few times I realized I wrote it in anger and that’s not what God gave me my gift for. I dedicated my life to writing things that give glory and honor to Him, whether they uplift, inspire, encourage or whatever God puts on my heart to do through my poetry. I don’t think Dear Brother did any of that.
So, I started over anew. I pray that this poem does everything God intended for it to do and that it ministers to all who read it. Take care and God bless
A CLASH OF DIFFERENT VIEWS 8/7/14
“The heavens declare his righteousness, and all
the people see his glory.”
God gave me this
After I wrote a torrent
Of insults and jabs
In Jesus name
And convinced I was in the right
In Jesus name
But wrong is wrong, all the same
