thin line between love and war.

22 Oct

How does it feel to be on that thin line that separates love from war? How does it feel to be torn between two feelings? How does it feel to not be able to choose between your heart and mind? Between your flesh and your spirit? It’s the most calm chaos you will ever experience. Can you choose a side? Or are you left on the fence forever? On one hand your heart is telling you about the love, the calm,the faith, the peace…and it all makes you smile. Meanwhile your mind is reminding u there’s a war going on outside; that this needs to be done, that this needs to be fixed, that you can’t get too comfortable with that peace because you will watch your life fall apart, you WILL be defeated. You choose to ignore and step over the inevitable because you feel you’re not strong enough for that fight. Being on that thin line feels stagnant, unsure of where to focus your focus. Being torn will have you on the fence saying you don’t want to go either way because no matter what, you’re not complete without having both…the peace keeps you sane and the riot makes you stronger. Can you have sanity without strength? That thin line is a mother. The best thing to do though, is to keep the peace and the riot separate. Don’t let the war make you think your love is not perfect. Peace is within and happens to be a controlled substance. But do not let that calm make you think the chaos is over. In this life, it’s never over. So in all, do you ever choose a side? Or is life one big peaceful riot….one big thin line between love and war?

Life.

5 Jun

Wow has it really been that long since I’ve been on here? Sorry Rioters I’m in VA with my sisters 🙂 will post a pic later but…I’m in thought right now.

I’m thinking about LIFE. And about what it means to be free. I mean you can’t

love

the

life

you

live

, without really feeling completely liberated. For me at least. I want to be at complete peace and completely enjoy what has been given to me. I want to be so wrapped up in God that if you aren’t as well, you won’t desire to be around me. Those are things I pray for. If everyone could feel the same way, more people would be more concerned with good rather than bad. Life is special. And everything happens for a reason. Do good things.

Use me!

17 May

so not too long ago, i had a dream that i was on a train with my cousin talking about getting our lives right with God. After a while on the train my cousin ended up falling asleep. While she was sleep the topic was still heavy on my mind so i called someone to pray with/for me. As i was calling the train started to fall off of the tracks over a bridge! i woke up as the train hit the ground. WHAT A DREAM? Usually when i have dreams they all have some kind of way of coming true or to send me a powerful message. I definitely received it. Do not wait until it is too late to get right! & that’s with anything, but more so with who you believe to be the most high. Lately i have been wasting no time and beginning to create and shape the kind of future i want for myself. I have been trying to remain healthy and take care of my body by watching what i eat along with plenty exercise! Working out has me feeling better than ever!! Also, i have been praying and praying for God to give me answers on certain problems in my life and also to bring me closer to his word. A lot of changes have been going on in my life and i now understand why. Last night i happened to turn to a random page in my Bible, something told me to stop there and just read. It happened to be the book of Colossians Chapter 2 Verses 6-23 & Chapter 3 Verses 1-25. It speaks of living a new life and walking in the path God has provided for us. Explains to us the dos and don’ts and also the why’s and why not’s. i encourage you all to read it 🙂 it spoke to me and answered every question i had. It was so intentional and deliberate that i KNEW GOD brought me to read that, at that moment, for a specific purpose; and i knew i was ready to change my life. I understood why i am having certain problems, why people are being removed from life, and what i must do now….now that i TRULY BELIEVE IN MY HEART.  It will be a struggle & i much prayer will be needed to make it through, but i believe it will be worth it. Delight in the Lord & receive the desires of your heart (Psalms 37:4). God Bless 🙂
