Lies / Truth

Part 1:

I lied again today, I can’t seem to get rid of this curse.

Whether it be for convenience, or for fear, I don’t know which is worse.

People don’t trust me. I don’t know what to say.

I lied again today, I can’t seem to get rid of this curse.

…..

Part 2:

May my words be Truth. Infused and emboldened by the strength of Love. 

     Cracking the curse.

May my words be Truth. Bringing freedom in every breath- in every word spoken.

     Cracking the curse.

May my words be Truth. Lead by Love, followed by grace and understanding.

     Cracking the curse.

May my words be Truth. Forgiveness received, fears relieved.

     Cracking the curse. 

May my words be Truth.

 

(This post is dedicated to all the liars, truth tellers, strugglers, enablers, etc… To us Humans.) We are loved, and I am thankful.

Our Stories

Personal, relational, historical, educational, influential.

Our Stories.

Spot drops, deep dives. Literal, metaphorical, amplified, minimized.  

Our Stories.

Truth, lies, helpful, harmful, clear and concise, twisted and winding. Complex and muddied. 

Our Stories.

We all have them-still being written- still being understood/ layered upon/ perhaps dismissed, or altered.

Our Stories. 

What are mine? What are yours? How will they evolve? Will they merge/align? Can we learn from each other’s?

Our Stories.

Painful, Joyful. Boring. Intense. Character development. Plot twists. Growth.

Our Stories.

Personal, relational, historical, educational, influential.

Relevant, useful. Are we listening?

As these are…

Our stories.

… and they are important.

 

I am thankful

Human Choices

Anytime there are humans around there is a chance for us to pervert and abuse.

  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Scouts
  • Teams: hockey, gymnastics…

This has been shown.

 

Anytime there are humans around there is a chance for us to show true others-serving love.

  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Scouts
  • Teams: hockey, gymnastics…

This has been shown

 

Let us be the humans that do this second option. However imperfect- let us love. 

 So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good.”

God

God is breath

God is air

God is in everything

Everything is in God

God is life

God cannot be confined 

Yet God allows for confinement

God is infinite

Yet God works with the finite

God makes himself known

Yet God is so unknown

“In Him we live, and move, and have our being” 

Let us search Him out, grasp towards unshackling the mystery. Open up to the greatness of him – yet unknown – yet ever present…

And always loving. 

  • I am thankful
