Puzzle Pieces

Better Off Alone

I’ve learned that we are worth too much to beg another person for their love and attention. Truth be told, what one person is not willing to give, another will.

Who ever said being in your own company was a bad thing anyway?

One and Only

IMG_4458I recently overheard a group of friends who were having a discussion on the correct way to write “God”. The argument was that if someone were referring to our heavenly father, then it should not be spelled in lowercase, because He is not a god, but rather God, the one and only. He is the living genuine God. Ever tried buying an imitation product that did not work as well as the original? Well, other gods don’t quite measure up to Him. Psalm 34:8 tells us to “taste and see that the Lord is good”, try Him today!

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. (Deuteronomy 6:4 NIV)

Offending God

Good & EvilHave you ever had someone upset at you, but you didn’t know why? Then upon questioning the person (or perhaps other people) you realize it was something you’d done but didn’t know it was offensive to others because to you it was normal. Sometimes we become so comfortable with sin, we don’t realize that it offends God. To us these things are “normal”. Society doesn’t help either, seeing as how bad is now considered good and good is called bad. This can all be very confusing but the bright side is, we can ask God to point out those things we’ve become comfortable with which keep us from Him.

Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Psalms‬ ‭139:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

You Probably Won't Read This

If I can’t be honest with myself, how can I be honest with the world? 

Allow me a moment of your time to share a piece of my heart. I didn’t start my page just to paint a perfect picture. Life isn’t always seen through rose-tinted glasses. There are issues, real issues that we don’t like to touch, we turn a blind eye, and pretend like these things don’t happen, but they do. Someone has to speak out, because somewhere, someone is seeking an answer, searching for hope, or simply needs to be reminded that they are not alone. I recall a time when I was that person. I remember being surrounded by many, hearing the laughter, faking the smiles, hiding the tears, playing the part, acting ok, but at the end of the day the mask came off and I was…alone. No one noticed, no one ever does, because everyone is too busy worrying about themselves, trying to fit in, trying to make a buck, getting followers on social media, and wearing their many hats and masks. That loneliness led to many BAD decisions. I tripped and stumbled countless times, I fell in the darkest pits imaginable, and even convinced myself that God would never forgive me, let alone love me. I was wrong.

Everyone is busy, we don’t have enough hours in the day, but take some time daily to share a smile, give a hug, encourage/compliment someone, and be the light we are called to be. The world has gotten so used to the darkness it lives in, that it fears the light. If only others could see with clarity, they’d notice they are not alone, they never were, and that they are loved. Love is not just a feeling, or a temporary high due to a chemical reaction in the brain, it is a lifestyle. God is love. He showed us the truest form of it when He sent His son to pay for our sins. He loves us without prejudice or conditions and it is that kind of love that changes lives.

Share THAT love, show THAT love, live THAT love, and believe in THAT love.

Lets fight loneliness…TOGETHER!

Better Days Ahead

RIP Love?

I attended a funeral today

Love is dead they say

Rest in peace, fresh grave


But I refuse to accept

I would believe it except

I still feel love’s effect


In the stillness I reminisced

Reminded of love’s bliss

It can’t be buried in this abyss


Unable to control or contain

The doubt drove me insane

I dug up the grave, hopefully not in vain


An empty tomb lay before me

Love wasn’t buried beneath me

I had to find love, it behooved me


Desperate, determined, and delighted

My quest for love ignited

In me a fusion of emotions that collided


It peeked at me from behind

The smile of a child, love was free, unconfined


It was in the breeze

In a lovers’ kiss, his embrace her squeeze


I saw it ignite as a passion

To help others with compassion


Satisfied knowing that love was alive

I set out but tripped and took a nose dive

And fell in love when I least expected it to arrive
