Precious Present

There are days when I feel happy and I just do not want it to end. Days when I could just savor this moment for it to last forever. These days are just like today, yesterday, and since Christmas Day. My special one has brought color and joy into my life and it is just right to savor it for however long I want to, wherever and whenever. These are moments when I want to remember when I am down in the future, just in case, to give me a little pick me up, to tell me to not give up because these days are up ahead.

As you can tell by now, I am happy. Plain and simple. Yep, that’s right. Not the elaborate “overjoyed” kind of way but the good ole’ “joy”, and yep you guessed it right. It is because of this one person. I used to think happiness depending on a person is ridiculous and do not get be wrong, it still is sometimes, however, that person also has the ability to add color into your life. Love, people may say… infatuation to the others, who wants to tone it down a little bit. However, the important part of it is happiness.

Since we are now talking about importance, I think it is just write to talk about its root. Why am I happy? Who is responsible for this burst of emotion? Is it really just this one guy? Or is it this man watching over us, making sure the guy I am happy with and about are experiencing joy instead of just plain happiness. See, I believe “joy” is a little bit deeper than smiles, laughter, euphoria, etc. I believe it comes from within and not only that, I believe it is given.

You may ask, “given… by who?” In my own spiritual understanding, I am absolutely positive it is granted by our Lord Jesus Christ. In Psalms 16:11 it is written, “You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.” This is the root of my joy, Jesus Christ. He is the reason why I sing His praise & worship when I am taking a shower, doing my makeup, doing my chores at work. He loves me deeply and he expresses it to me through this joy.

All I can say is thank you Jesus Christ. Before this year ends, I encourage you to reflect on what He has done in your life, how much he loves you, how he died and rose again to save you from your sins, and who He is in your everyday life. He is always there for you and for me, it is just a matter of us constantly reminding ourselves to not worry because He has gifted us joy, so we must live and act upon this precious present He has given.

Remnants Resurface

I do not want to know
But somehow
Time
Has its way
Through accidental glimpses

Are they accidents?
Are accidents even real?
I try
To cover my eyes
Hide my mind

Still
Remnants of you resurface

Your presence
Lingers
As they creep up
Silently
Too late to stop

Making its way carelessly
Stepping through cracks
Visiting facts
Replaying such acts

Will I ever get away?
From your shadows of relay
and
Accidental display

Mediocre Be Bold

 

Mediocrity
Tell me
How I can write away with thee
Ordinarily
Blandly
Simply
Tell Me
How I can write extraordinarily

Scribbles
Doodles
Loopholes
Will I hit my goals
Touch souls

Teach
Reach
Preach
Will hearts be stitched

Attentions lured
Brokenness cured
Intentions pured
Fill a void

Whose heart will I hold?
Mind forever fold
Silence told

 

Mediocre be bold

 

He Believes He Never Leaves

God says,
“I believe in you”
It whispers into my soul
Soul full of doubt
His voice I cannot live without

Jesus says,
“I will not leave you”
It speaks into my heart
Heart full of hurt
His presence I want to be part

He believes
For He knows who I am
He never leaves
For He understands
He whispers
For He wants silence
He speaks
For He loves to be heard

My soul
Weak
My heart
Sick
His touch
Meek

He Never Leaves
