Confrontation is Kind, Not Cruel

Confrontation is not cruel, but kind
Otherwise you will remain pitifully blind
Blind to your own foolishness and deception
Blind to your own agenda and motivation
Blind to your people skills and offenses caused
Blind to your self-absorbed nature and flaws
Blindness is not a desirable trait, nor is it great
Therefore when someone lovingly gets in your face
Don’t get your back and dander up, nor be an ingrate
Because they’re helping you to improve your state
To reverse the deadly curse and bless your life’s fate
Otherwise you will blindly carry on until it’s too late
Only to awake one day alone with no love in your home
No money in your bank account and no goodness in life
Therefore when confrontation comes receive it humbly
Before getting angry and allowing it to produce strife
Let confrontation for righteousness sake make you great.

Seasons of Suffering

Seasons of suffering

Dear God, will they ever end?

Seasons of suffering

Bringing me to my wits end

Seasons of suffering

Teaching me heartfelt obedience

To live in the realm of the Spirit

Seasons of suffering

Until I embrace and hear it

God Almighty come and stop it!

Seasons of suffering

Grinding down my motives

Seasons of suffering

Persistent like a locomotive

Seasons of suffering

Continually coming

Although I be running

Sometimes in anger cursing

Always hating and resisting

Such perilous times and measures

Yet within my heart is a treasure

A far greater weight of God’s glory

Therefore He applies divine pressure

To change my wayward character

To rewrite my pitiful life story

To add integrity when I don’t care

To give me peace deep within

When I want to pull out my hair

To calm my nerves, silence the storms

Help a heart that is worn and forlorn

To uplift my spirit when I feel like a worm

To encourage my heart when I wish to depart

To comfort my soul and make me whole

To restore to me what the devil has stole

Seasons of suffering not always as they seem

For in actuality God is good when He seems mean

Nevertheless when you learn the life lessons

He’s endeavoring to instruct and teach

In the end you shall rejoice and be complete.

Therefore surrender to your heavenly Father

Your distant heart, dirty hands, and frail feet.

Why Moms are Mean – Frustrated, Angry, and Irritable

Moms become mean when they give their lives away to everybody else and have no time or life left for themselves.

Properly handling feelings of rejection is important to bounce back and be whole.  When you are willing to be brutally honest with yourself, face your past hurts, examine your internal world, and process your pain you can experience a breakthrough.

Making Bricks for Pharoah

Oh, no my wonderful Lord

We’re making bricks for Pharoah

Jehovah-jireh don’t delay to show

Your mighty power so all may know

That you provide for your people abundantly

Once again come forth and open the Red Sea

Provide miraculously and pay taxes supernaturally

Open the mouths of fish to cough up cash happily

As in times past as you did for the apostle Peter

Don’t let financial constraints silence and deter

Your people from seeking first the kingdom of God

Show yourself strong so greedy creditors will applaud

Let debt cancellation and cash flow magnificently

Let financial acumen and skill break forth intuitively

Within your people’s hearts and minds spiritually

Creative ideas to solve all our monetary problems

Divine appointments, alignment, and relationships

So we can rejoice, stay afloat, and not be a sinking ship

El Shaddai the nourishing one Father to whom we come

Help us because of our endless toil life is no more fun

Grievously vexed by our employers we cry for liberation

We need far more than the power of the resurrection

We also need wisdom, wealth, prosperity, and satisfaction

Alleviation from this gruesome plight of financial despair

Arise for your namesake oh God and show us you care

Before stress and strain prematurely grays our lovely hair

Or makes it fall out entirely as we worry and agonize daily

No more do we wish to make bricks for an oppressive Pharoah

Arise dear Lord so with the Great Commission we can boldly go

And preach the Good News of Christ throughout the entire earth

Telling all souls the glories of your name and about the new birth.

Job Hunting – A Full Time Job

Job hunting

Has become to me

A full time job

Never ending

My qualifications

Always refrencing

My past accomplishments

My endless education

My work experience

My professional acquaintance

With key people in the work place

God Almighty give me some grace

To endure and continue pursuing

Meaningful employment without complaining

Because I get rejected because of my skin color,

My age, my looks, my limitations, lack of conformity

My authenticity, humanity, and bold individuality

Shall I cease being a human and just be a conformist

Sell my soul for money and do whatever comes along

Or believe for the best, be selective, and stand strong?

Yes, I have to pay the bills and can’t be a ding dong

For one who doesn’t care for his own family is an infidel

Or even worse according to the Bible, but help me God

I’m drowning in applications and this employment process

Arise and give me a breakthrough loving heavenly Father

For your Name sake answer my prayer and don’t delay

For years of tireless job hunting has left me most weary

As king David in distress prayed, “Send now prosperity”

Enough of my dire poverty, inconsistency, and calamity

Bring on the blessings God and use my talents and ability

To glorify thee and build your people and kingdom in the earth

Bring forth in me professionally and occupationally a new birth.

Open the windows of heaven over me and move hearts favorably

Direct me inwardly by your Spirit so I know where to labor specifically

Whom to entreat professionally and where to work purposefully

Help dear God, hearken to the cry of your child crying out to thee.

Jean Dominique Bauby – The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

Jean-Dominique Bauby (April 23, 1952 – March 9, 1997) was a well-known French journalist and author and editor of the French fashion magazine ELLE. On December 8, 1995 at the age of 43, Bauby suffered a massive stroke. When he woke up twenty days later, he found he was entirely speechless; he could only blink his left eyelid. This rare condition is called Locked-in Syndrome, a condition wherein the mental faculties are intact but the entire body is paralyzed. Bauby also lost 60 pounds in the first 20 weeks after his stroke.

Nevertheless despite his condition, Bauby fulfilled his dream to write a book which he titled The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by blinking when the correct letter was reached by a person slowly reciting the alphabet over and over again. The book was published in France in 1997. The diving bell of Bauby’s title was his bodily confinement and limitation, the butterfly his imagination.

After fulfilling his dream, Bauby died just 10 days later of pneumonia. In 2007, painter-director Julian Schnabel released a film version of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly which won Schnabel the best director prize at Cannes, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination for Best Director.

A remarkable and inspiring true story about the awesome power of imagination, perseverance, and dedication to live one’s dream!

Now arise, transcend your excuses, triumph over your circumstances, and live your dreams!

Bauby’s life story gives me hope to find a way to live my dreams when I have no money to travel internationally and uplift humanity ministerially as is my customary life tendency. Nevertheless perhaps like Bauby through the printed page and my writings, until I lay hold of some money, I can journey my world inwardly until I resume my travels globally.
