3 things to do when you hit rock bottom…

Sometimes life hits us hard out of no where. Our lives can literally change in a matter of seconds. What do we do when we find ourselves at the bottom? When there is no one to call on and we’ve done everything we could possibly think of?

Well for starters, PRAY!

Many of us don’t take prayer for what it really is. An intimate conversation between you and the all powerful, all knowing. If done with your heart in the right place you are guaranteed an answer. An answer, maybe not the one you except or want but the one that is needed. God is so much bigger than our minds, he can take us places we can’t imagine.

The next thing you do is WORK.

What are the steps you need to take to get yourself closer to the top? I mean the smallest of steps you can take, because there is never a time where nothing can be done. Talking to someone, shifting your focus on the positive, not gossiping. Whatever it is we have to be willing to do work after we don’t have anything left, because this is more than that. We’ve done what we wanted and ended up here, now we need to do the hard things. The things God has been calling us to do.

The last thing, WAITING

Waiting is no sitting around doing nothing, it’s getting the little things done. We do what we can control. So stay focused, share your story, be positive, whatever you feel like you are lead to do. If you are busy at work pleasing God with your life, God is working on your behalf. Wait, because he sees us and now that we see him it’s all about to change.

You

I cover you in prayers.

I cover you in kisses.

I cover you in love.

I prayed many nights for you.

I cried many nights for you.

I lusted many nights for you.

I can not get over you.

I’m  the other half of you.

You thought you knew

at the time I thought I knew me 

turns out… you ain’t my type 

I don’t like the way you look 

definitely not the way you feel 

when I think of you I start to itch 

 So bye-bye ugly blue sweater. 

Be a Star

I’m a star but not according to you

you don’t look in my mirror 

It’s all kinds of lit 

No extra stuff to spice it up 

just me being me 

My spirit is feeling up all the empty space

I’m behind the door in the back of the room 

looking directly at you 

You don’t see me but I you can you feel me

I’m the smile that creeps across your face at a memory 

I’m the melting when someone says just what you needed 

I’m the high you get after yoga 

The sleep you get after you get off the plane

I’m the chills you get when they find your spot

I’m the star 

You see me small but I’m a big deal 

Just back here gleaming 

waiting for you to recognize me. 

Earth

i am grateful for the wind

and the sun light the moon

and the stars the birds 

and the bees the plants

and the trees the dirt 

and the grass the warmth 

and the cold air 

i am grateful for nature the one who heals 

 and eventually calls us home. 

Sprinkle me over the earth 

when I’m gone so i can in a way always live on.
