For My G, My Godsend

The way you say your blessed
And to see, it`s just the best
And to rest
Knowing there`s something between you and me
And to feel just so free
You singing to me so sweetly
I can see into your eyes
No lies
You`re not like other guys
Who cheat on their wives
Destroy their lives
Not you
The son of who
Created me too-
Knowing that soon
We would sit in this room
We would flow
Cause we know
What we do
Is between me and you
And we see
What we`ll be
For the rest of Eternity
Living life so happily
And now I`m down on my knees
Thanking God and asking please
Let him be the one
Who proves life`s just begun
With my son
And my daughter, nothing`s ever done
But we have a lot of fun
I`m so glad he sent you here
That you can be so near
To chase away my fear
And lend to me an ear
And when I go to bed
It`s with thoughts of you running through my head
And the things that you have said
Have led
Me to be fed
In a way
That I`ll stay
Another Day
And I`ll hear the words you have to say
Cause I know in the end
You have become my greatest friend
My ally, my Godsend...

Simple Thoughts...

In a desperate world where only the truth really matters

Children cry and their mothers can`t hold them

A twist of faith changes a single persons life forever

Two destinies collide and a crash course in love is taught in a matter of days

Each tear that falls is a question on that persons mind

Gifts that can only come from within are given without a thought of anything in return

One heart tries desperately to talk to another, no words are ever spoken

Everyday struggles cloud the clearness in was once thought to be a sound mind

A direct quote is spoken from the mouths of disbelievers, not knowing the person they are quoting

Fiction becomes fact when the source is a reliable one

Simple moments are shared with one smile, one wink, one glance... returning as a memory years later

knowing better not always equals doing better, yet tomorrow always comes new

knowledge of life... destiny, created by our own thoughts and actions

A silent prayer before you sleep, "Please give me faith, so I will believe good things come to those who wait..."

My Truth

They say the writing`s on the wall
But the people writing, I can see through them all

God gave me the gift of perception
He sent me as a direct reflection
So when you look at me you will see his perfection

God enlightened me and opened my mind
It`s through him the truth and answers you will find

When you find the truth and you choose to believe
There is no limit to the blessings you will receive
And there is nothing left you can`t achieve

I wanna see the world through your eyes
I wanna know how others live there lives

God didn`t send us here to be alone
The people in the house are what makes it a home
When you share your truth with me, God etches it in my heart like it was written in stone

And be careful with the negative you choose to share
Negativity can be a burden to heavy for another to bear

Instead bring the positive into the light
Add to it until it becomes so bright
It stays with others through the day and rests with them at night

And it doesn`t matter if your beliefs are the same
After God touches you it`s only the truth that remains

God blessed me with this life so I can
Receive truth from child, woman and man
Each truth bringing me closer to the great I AM

And I`ve stopped trying to run away from my past
But instead focus on the good memories so they`ll last

I`m thankful for the bad, so I can appreciate the good
I appreciate beauty, if there was no ugly do you think I really could?
Would you appreciate a mansion if you hadn`t come from the hood?

God gave us agency so we can choose our own way
Without night, how could there be day?

People say God sent his only begotten son
But if he created all of us, how could there be only one?
If that were the case my life was over before it had begun

Instead God created us in his image so we`re all the same
So when you point the finger, it`s really yourself you have to blame

People think that through religion the truth and answers you will find
But then they let their religion completely close their mind

If it`s the truth that sets you free
And I find truth in you and me
Why do I need a religion to really see?

I can be in jail and fill the spirit
If the truth is spoken, do I have to be at church to hear it?

It`s okay if you don`t agree with the words I say
But please try to understand I have found my own way
I feel content with each new day

I respect whatever you choose to believe
I just hope you can have the same respect for me

I know for some people this is hard to understand
It`s like hearing a foreign language in some far off land
Reaching out for something and missing the outstretched hand

If you second guess what really comes from "above"
Is there any difference in how you outpour your love?

The Bible stems from the time of God`s creation
He wants us to know that time, but leave room for modern day revelation
How could one book be the only truth for every coming generation?
Do we have only one man that is able to lead a nation?

Can all of God`s truth be contained in just one book?
If he handed us all of his knowledge we wouldn`t continue to look

God wants us to find what works for us
That`s why he`s given us so much trust

He`s provided so much more then just one book as a guide
He gives personal inspiration to help us survive
So when truth is found even in small things, the spirit of God is very alive

I felt inspired to write these words
Is it any less inspired then the book of Proverbs?

When a truth is shared between me and you
God sparks a flame so we know it`s true
And it`s in that moment where he makes one out of two

If you feel with these thoughts your spirit was fed
Then it doesn`t matter if you remember a word that I said

I just hope that you remember one simple thing
When you open your heart and mind, your spirit will sing
And God will bless others with the happiness you bring

Because when you try to do your part,
God offers the ultimate blessing: Contentment in your heart

Receive truth, however it comes to you
And you can feel honored in everything you do
So in turn you can be one of the lucky few
Who is content and unafraid, living your life the way God intended you to

I have a feeling this is the start of something good...
