comsuming darkness

"groping in the
darkness,
thrashing my
arms at anything
in hopes to touch something real
. . .
something firmilar
. . .
as my very breath is
being held from my lungs and
my heart races at
this unhealthy pace
I am lost in this darkness
. . .
where are you
as I am being taken
into this this other world.
This voice booms in my head
and i can do nothing
to wake up
from this. . .
Fear has gripped onto me,
becomes so much of
all I feel
and refuses to let go
Everything I feel
is nothing of you . . .
where are you
as i wake to find
this nightmare is
now
my reality ?"

Count on Me

I was in the car the other day and this song came on and as i listened to the lyrics i heard something .. God whispering to me - telling me ... through this song all that i needed to hear in that moment.. that he is everything i need and he is here for me and will always be and will carry me though the tough times and just be there with me ... and it is something i should never forget! so i thought i would share it...

"Count On Me" - Default

"I know that life ain't always good to you.
I've seen exactly what it’s put you through
Thrown you around and turned you upside down
and so you
You got to thinking there was no way out
You started sinking and it pulled you down

It may be tough you've to get back up
Because you know that life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
You can count on me
Cause’ I will carry you till you Carry on
Anytime you need someone
Somebody strong to lean on
Well you can count on me
To hold you till the healing is done
And every tim…

quiet reminders

I truly know
right now
...
in this moment
that you are here.
I know right now
that there is more
to this
life then
it alone
can give me
and i fell
the greater
story being
played out
through my heart
. . .
but when the
darkness comes
and hoping
not knowing
becomes reality
-
when blind faith
is all there is to
grasp with
my fingertips
. . .
when I am
searching for life
again
and start to panic
i beg you to
whisper into the
darkness
once more
quietly reminding my
heart

"I exist and I am here"

(because that simple fact
can be so easy to forget)
