Journal entry #5: I feel the need… the need to fly! ✈️

 :

21st May 2017

I’ve been doing some thinking lately.

I am content with what God has given me: life, family, friends, church, pets, this blog, my job etc. But I’ve been doing some soul searching because I’ve been feeling restless lately, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I am ready to turn another chapter in my life. I am ready to do whatever it takes for me to achieve this goal. 

It is time for me to fly once again.

I keep telling people to do what they love and it’s about time to do something else that I love.

June plans! – La Petit Muse:

The “old” me..

Margaret is a testimony of His love and whenever He blesses her with poetry such as I can testify because I’ve been there at some point in time.

The Word

The “old” me
hidden away, no one could see:

panic attacking
life hijacking
forever wrong
never strong
self hating
inside debating
tears shed
eyes red
nerves throbbing
endless sobbing
tirelessly mad
always sad

It didn’t have to be
God rescued me.

February 17th: Mentor

clouds, devotional, faith

Have you ever had a mentor? What was the greatest lesson you learned from him or her?

My mentor is the Lord Jesus Christ. It is Jesus that I look to at all times. He has taught me many lessons, but the top one for me is to “Love one another; just as I have loved you.” John 13:34. Without love, one cannot appreciate life.

The Poem

 :

No Time
I knelt and prayed, but not for long.
I had too much to do.
Must hurry off and get to work,
For bills will soon be due.

And so I said a hurried prayer,
Jumped up from off my knee,
My Christian duty now was done,
My soul could be at ease.

All through the day I had no time,
To speak a word of cheer,
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They’d laugh at me I’d feared.

No time, no time, too much to do.
That was my constant cry.
No time to give to those in need.

At last t’was the time to die.
And when before the Lord I came;
I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands he held a book;
It was the Book Of Life.

He looked into the book and said,
“Your name I cannot find,
I once was going to write it down,
But I never found the time.”

*** I’ve always loved this poem. This is what most of us go through on a daily basis without a second thought for our Father. When you wake in the morning, the first thing you must be is grateful in seeing another day so we thank the Lord in prayer. Don’t let life get the better of you. It’s time to stop taking God for granted and put Him before all else.
