Be Still

My head won’t be quiet.

Spinning and running it never stops.
Songs playing at the same time.
Thoughts of the day and days before.
Memories keeping me awake.
It Plaques my existence.

Be still my soul
Be still and sleep.

Sitting up in bed while everyone sleeps.
Wondering when it will be my turn.
When will the voices cease and I can rest?
Replaying events of the past.
Wishing they were different, Wishing I could change. 

Be still my soul.
Be still and sleep.

Be still and hear God.
Block all else out and only hear Him.

Pacing back and forth,
And rocking.
The noises never stop.
Pieces of songs, bits of advice.
Filling my mind keeping me awake.

Be still my soul.
Be still and sleep.
Be still my soul.
Be still and rest.

Block all the noise out. 
And only hear God’s voice.

Be still and only hear him.
Block all else out and only hear him.
He is calling to you!

I Lost

I lost
People I thought I would have forever.
I lost
Chats and talks I thought I would always have.
I lost
Though how do I get it all back, and do I even want it all back?
Socially impaired.
No idea how to make or keep friends.
Socially Impaired. 
With the world so busy, and my mind so confused.
Socially impaired. 
In this world of confusion. 

How do you move an acquaintance to a friend or a friend to a good friend? 
How does one keep friends and how does one make friends?
I lost a sense of myself and my own desires. 
I lost the nuances and gestures that help others to figure this out. 

I was lost, but now I am found. 
I Found
Strength in myself that I will have forever. 
I found 
Chats and talks I will have forever. 
I found
I love that will not quit and I never have to wonder where it went.

To Keep a Promise

To Keep a Promise

A promise is something sweet,

A caring gesture of friendship and love.

Sincere thoughts and a heartfelt vow,

A pledge of honor and faith.

When promises brake and friendships shattered,

You blackened your heart with lies.

How far do you go to recapture that trust?

What will you do to regain that love?

The vow and the faith you once had,

Why do you keep your promise when others do not?

Should you mend something that’s broken?

How do you fix the friendship all in ruins,

A trust that is a dilapidated mess?

How far will you go to keep a promise of a friendship long gone?

Throw my feelings in the trash and stomp all over them!

Do my feelings not matter to you?

Do you think you can do what you want?

Screw me, because I don’t matter!

Throw my feelings in the trash and stomp all over them!

 

Did you even think to talk to me?

Did you think I wouldn’t care?

Did you even think of me?

 

I know you didn’t think of me!

I know no one does!

 

It’s better to not expect anything from anyone!

They always disappoint!

I expect too much from people and I am the one who gets hurt.

 

Did you even think to talk to me?

Did you think I wouldn’t care?

Did you even think of me?

 

Throw my feelings in the trash and stomp all over them!

You’re in My Seat

Photo by Karl Fredrickson on Unsplashchurch

I had an interesting experience at church last week and it reminded me of these two stories I have heard pastor’s use for their sermon.

In the first story, a man is visiting a church. This man sits in a pew and a lady came up to him and said, “I’m sorry but you are sitting in my pew.” This man got up and moved to another pew. Again, a man came up to him and said, “You’re sitting in my pew.” This happened several times before the man left the church. I have heard this story told by pastors with the message of welcoming new members.

There is another version of this story where the man sitting in everyone’s pew was a homeless man who smelled and wore torn clothes. At the end of this story, he came to the front of the church and said, “You asked me to move because I was sitting in your pew. I have sat in your pew and have died for your sins.” The man was Jesus. The Bible says giving to those in need is giving to Jesus. We should embrace people in need and welcome them.

When I went to church last weekend with my children, I had a similar experience. I drove into the parking lot and saw an open parking space. I drove in and parked, while a car came up next to mine and rolled down the window. A middle-aged woman was in the driver’s seat, so I assumed she needed directions or something.

So I asked, “Can I help you with anything?” What came next surprised both me and my children. She said, “It’s my parking spot. We only have six spots, so you need to move.”

I looked at her confused for a moment, then I realized that she was attending the church next to mine. So I replied, “Well it’s a good thing I am not coming here to visit your church because I will never come back.” I then drove off and parked my car elsewhere.

The woman pulled out of the spot she was in and moved her car closer to her church. My kids caught this and said, “So she just pulled in next to you to tell you to move your car. Jesus will not like that.” And my kids are correct. What if someone was planning on visiting this church or someone thinking about becoming a Christian? That person may never want to visit another church or becoming a Christian if Christians treat others this way. My daughter said, “I guess that’s why they only have 6 parking spots; no one wants to go to their church. I love our church. Everyone is nice and friendly.”

People expect Christians to be perfect, but we are far from perfect. Sometimes it takes compassion and common sense. This woman didn’t have either. She taught my children a lesson. She taught them to always welcome others because they know what it feels to not be welcome. It might be a small thing but for someone searching for a church of someone searching for God, it’s a big thing.
