Out of beat

September 29, 2008

Time pulses on a constant, like ticks on a metronome, a constant 4/4.
Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years.
I recollect, reflect, resolve.
I took 1 second to recall the lost of years.
A split second, a fleeting thought, a reminder rather.

For a while, it seems that time has gone off beat as I relinquish from reality, soaked in a familar melancholy that warms my heart.
I feel as if I can feel your heart again.

E is for…

September 23, 2008

E is for emotions.
E is also for education.

There was a time, that I value my emotions more than my education.
It was a time that I had plenty.
Opportunities, finances, peers, and grace.
As time goes by, I find myself having lesser opportunities,finances and peers.
My emotions got the better of me and my education fail me, or rather I fail it.
Yet grace was extended.

Tonight, I’ve drawn an important conviction.
I will manage my emotions and value my education.

Emotions fail, but I will not allow myself to fail because of emotions.
Neither will I allow it to fail my ministry, relationships or any other area.
I am claiming this area, in Jesus name and with the power of the word.
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”2 Corinthians 10:5

An Elusive syndrome

September 18, 2008

The coming and going.
The gaining and losing.
The holding on and letting go.
The paradox of a fallen perfection.
We chagrined at irony.
Life is but an elusive syndrome.
