Venting-Blowing off steam

We all need to vent to blow off some steam. Life is not always easy and is full of complication, challenges and problems that we all have to face everyday.

A good friend of mine one said to me “Kindness it does not always mean when I say something to you, I want advice or the works but just to get something of my chest”. Than it hit me we all need that be it writing on a blank page your deepest raw emotions or be it painting art work that depicts your truest self .

For many of us we have our friends. Well that what there are there for right. But things never turn out the way you want , if we can get them to keep quite a bit more and listen or agree with what you say at that time no matter how wrong you where.

If you keep something long enough on the inside it will eventually explode and you would not want that happening in the wrong place. So when you feel the kettle is reaching boiling point. It about time to find that person to vent too, if that fails pic up a pen and just write or screaming could work for you too. You never know.

How do you vent ?

Living a Spirit filled life

You may know his name.

His body was brutalized and left for dead.

His hand were nailed on the cross.

His feet bind together and nailed.

The anguish he felt as his flesh

Was torn apart from his body.

 

He paid the highest price, of all.

For only He could satisfy the law.

The law stood against God

It was met for good and for

The betterment of all.

 

But it to imprison us.

To death and sin, for we could

Not pay the price it demand.

For we fall short.

Never seeming able to do enough

 

After the cross He rose

Back to life by His Spirit

He told me that He also gave

You this Spirit, whom broke

the hold of death.

 

Liberated and set free and set apart

My flesh a living sacrifice

My spirit revived within

Death no longer reigns in me.

Only Peace and life.

Lazy

There are days where I spent my days with Lazy.

He is always there asking to spend time with me.

Its hard to resist his word of relaxation and

non-productivity..

 

Hours turn into days each time i’m with him.

After a while I snap out of it,

I realized time went over my heard

like I was counting sheep as slept

  1. sheep 2. sheep 3. sheep …

 

I came to realize that my friend Laziness

was not a true friend but a liar.

When reality struck, he was  nowhere to be found.

I had to do my assignments, projects all the work alone.

Alone and with little too no time to spare.

 

I told myself that in my tomorrow,

I will make a decision.

When my friend Mr Laziness

comes for a visit .

 

We will find out then.

Will I invite him in or

will I ask him to turn back.

The book of the wise Proverbs, states in 10:4

“Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.”

[Student life, or having a job and family can be overwhelming at times and there are days you may feel or drop everything to do nothing all day, the solution is to manage time well to avoid being overwhelmed. It’s good to rest but don’t be lazy]

Identity

Who am I? Am I what I do? Am I who people say I am? Or Am I who my family say I Am?16 years old, lost and confused. Waves swept me from my feet into the ocean. Tossed back and forth by the waves and wind.

Lost at sea, in the middle of nowhere, people pulling me in all direction. Many voices called my Name through the storm, so I swam in circles going nowhere. Putting on the Identities which people gave me but none of them fit or was just right.

I finally stopped swimming, tired and hopeless I was. Every night I closed my eyes hopeless, empty and worn out. Months passed than years I was drowning sinking under the weight of life. Into the water I went slowly. But before I was under I saw something.

There was a man who came to me in the ocean. He walked on the water, His voice was like a roaring lion, He calmed the hash storm I was in with a word, He then pulled me out of the water, saving my life.

The man took my hand and called me son. His Love and warmth was all around me, He guided me to safety. In Him I found myself, my identity. Which is child of God, friend of God and beloved one of God.

In the waves of life I was lost, pulled in all direction by everyone, but one voice was louder, one person came looking. My father came down and found me, in the mist of my worst point, saved and adopted into His family. No greater Love is there then this.

Inspired by

1 John 3:1

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God…

And

Colossians 1:13

13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
