SPEAK: A CALL TO ACTION

The purpose of the poem, SPEAK: A CALL TO ACTION, is to encourage people going through a storm to keep pressing until the clouds clear. If you need help, get up, seek what you need and get your healing process started. It saddens me to see people, esp Christians, bound and trapped in their current or past circumstances. As believers, we know God shed His blood so that we can be free; we need to claim that freedom and start walking in it. As long as we have breath in our lungs, we have a chance to better ourselves and our situations. When we are depressed, upset, confused, angry etc, we have a tendency to want to lay down and give up. PLEASE don’t accept your life the way that it is, don’t throw in the towel. God is faithful. He sees your pain, He sees your tears. Keep pressing, keep praying and praising. When you don’t know what to pray, just say the name JESUS.

SPEAK: A CALL TO ACTION

4/13/10

SPEAK

SHOUT

LET IT ALL OUT

DON’T SIT STILL

DON’T ALLOW YOURSELF TO STAY ILL

GET HELP

GET FREE

LIVE FOR THE FUTURE

LET THE PAST BE

THE PAST

GOD LOVES AND FORGIVES YOU

YOU DON’T HAVE TO ASK

PRAY

CRY

DON’T LAY DOWN AND DIE

FIGHT

SCREAM

DON’T REPLAY THE SCENES

OF TRAUMA IN YOUR HEAD

DON’T WALK AROUND LIKE THE LIVING DEAD

GET RESTORED

DON’T SIT AROUND DAZED AND BORED

GET ACTIVE

BREAK OUT

HAVE A VOICE

YOU HAVE A CHOICE

BE FREE

OR BE BOUND

WOULDN’T YOU RATHER HEAR THE SOUNDS

OF LAUGHER AND NOT TEARS

YOU NEED HELP

NOT A COUPLE OF BEERS

TALK

ASK

BUT PLEASE DON’T MASK

THE PAIN

IF YOU DON’T GET IT OUT

YOU MAY GO INSANE

STOP ASKING WHY

DONT BE AFRAID TO STEP OUT AND  TRY

SOMETHING DIFFERENT

SOMETHING NEW

GOD WANTS JOY AND PEACE FOR YOU

GET UP

START MOVING

EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO GO

JUST DON’T GIVE UP

KEEP PRESSING YOUR WAY

YOU WILL FIND YOUR JOY

YOU WILL HAVE PEACE WHEN YOU PRAY

SPEAK

SHOUT

LET IT ALL OUT

TRUST GOD

BECAUSE HE ALREADY KNOWS

WHAT YOUR STRUGGLE IS ALL ABOUT

A Prayer For Those  In Need of Restoration

Dear Lord

Thank you for giving those reading this blog the boldness to do what they have to do to get better, to be free.  Lord, facing our past is scary and sometimes we don’t want to deal with the emotions that come with confronting our issues. Please give us peace as we seek help and trust in you. Thank you for your unfailing love, your mercy which is new every morning and for peace that passes all understanding. Lord, help us to get free and stay free. Send laborers our way that know you and your word intimately. Help the laborers to be kind and patient as they lead us to wholeness in you. Lord, thank you in advance for restoration. In Jesus Christ mighty name, AMEN!!

John 16:24

Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
