it's just a little flower pot filled with sand & stones
yet it holds my very pulse my inner core my bones.
six small stones in a bed of white sand
deep and rich in meaning yet smaller than my hand.
the red marbled stone set in the center is the heart of my Father
reminding me just how much He loves His sons and daughters
at the center of my being
is the heart of my King.
the second stone is small and black and odd
it's the small rock of great faith in our father God.
the unshakable unwaivering faith that God can do all things
and we His children consider it an honor to serve this king of kings.
the third is white and round and looks like a stone ball
it's the fire starter spirit spreader - it's my love for God & yall.
the fourth stone is gray and brown to remind me to pray
to love & see us all as God does day after day.
every single one of us is special in His sight
we are all His holy body and together we will fight.
the fifth stone is my rock of peace, what else can i say
sweet peace of God right now and every blessed day
the last stone number six is the hardest one for me
it's the stone of discipline & self control you see
it's being daily in His word and Spirit, floating in His river
being missional compassionate a lover and a giver
its just a little dish of sand and six smooth & tiny stones
but it holds the key to my inner being my core my very bones

a Saviors letter

remember Morph, the Prayer Maze, i found my old notes, there was this one stop on the maze where we were guided to read Psalm 23 and pray to hear from God and journal it, following is what i wrote - oddly - rereading for the first time since the night I wrote it, it looks like a letter from Jesus. this is weird, hold on. yall i don't know what else to do with this but share it with someone so i picked you. tell me honestly if you think i'm losin it.

(i feel some of this is for you)

Be at peace my son, everything is prepared and ready and perfect. You do not have to fight or struggle, I have done it for you. This is not your fight, it is mine and I have already won. Sit with me, laugh with me, let me use you.

Struggle no more, be still and quiet. keep your heart open and your eyes on me. Love All - Always. Be bold, but humble. I will give you what you need when you need it. You lack nothing!

Don't worry too much about friends and family, am I not big enough to love them too? Press into the lost - raise the dead - breath life into the dry bones. Be light and salt, I will show myself in you.

I will show my power in your weakness. I will share my love with your heart, hands & tongue. I will plant gardens with your hands and water them with your sweat and tears.

Be willing, humble, gentle.
Go where I am, when I am not there - bring me.
Move mountains for me!

Pray and teach others what I have taught you. Heal in my name. Encourage in my name. Make disciples everywhere you go - for me! Teach, sew, nurture and reap the fruits of my spirit. Watch for the fruit - watch for miracles, they are everywhere.

Pray but ACT! Pray but Celebrate. Pray for righteousness. Keep me with you every minute of every day.
Look for my coming.
