No where to turn but to You

Lost in a world I don’t belong, I’d sought for pleasure and sought for peace
And where I looked, temporary was found
Nothing seemed to stick around.
Things I gained, things I loved, rapid changes, loss and pain
Oh how tired the chase made me.
Until I was lost in the darkest of seas.
With nowhere to turn I had to look up, but when I looked up, was directed within
to a hardened dark place that my heart used to be
I praise You my constant for ever-changing me.

“I can’t breathe”

“I can’t breathe,” the police are on my back
won’t leave me alone, it’s cause I’m black.
I didn’t do nothing, yet they’re out here again,
claiming I’m criminal, wanna take me in.
“I can’t breathe,” they’re holding me down,
head smashed to the pavement, in my own town.
Family is watching, my neighbors too,
helpless we are, there’s nothing to do.
“I can’t breathe,” I cry out, with barely a voice
It’s cause I’m black, and not by choice.
Too many brothers been locked away,
The new Jim Crow, taking it’s place each day.
“I can’t breathe,” locked up in my cell,
A cage ain’t no place for a man to dwell.
Protect and serve they claimed as their oath,
But not street people and the brotherhood both.
They’ll lie, cheat, and steal to protect their name.
Yes, some police kill without any shame.
“I can’t breathe,” in a system holding me down,
It’s unjust how they watch the black people drown.
Filling those high walls with the poor minorities,
“I can’t breathe,” won’t someone listen, please!!

I encourage you, “Let your gentleness be known to ALL men…” Philippians 4:5

In memory of Eric Garner and his beloved family.

I Can’t Breathe

Overcome the World

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you WILL have tribulation; BUT BE OF GOOD CHEER, I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD.” John 16:33 (emphasis mine)

This season is easily eluded with storms that blind the eyes, and frost that covers the heart. We see youth dying, love ending, families broken. Easily absorbed in the midst of brokenness we miss the joy and promises of an unending love. We have the power to overcome the pain because a loving Father sent His Son to overcome tribulation on our behalf. In our weakness, He is strong.
Endure! Persevere! You are not alone!

Fallen down, bruised and broken,
This path we walk sure aint jokin.
People crushing, pushing, shoving.
In their mind, only righteously loving.
Wounded souls, one, two, three.
He picks us up while we still bleed.
So look to Him who saw your fall,
And on the cross took it ALL.
For you to live, and abundantly so.
Now get on your feet and THANKFULLY go.

Peace and Love Warriors! Press on, Victory is YOURS!


In love and trust in Him, Samantha Grace

My Wonderful Husband

I’ve sought and cried,
Oh, how I’ve tried,
To find the perfect Husband.
I could not see,
Oh, shame on me,
Your love so eagerly beckoned.
Here I am,
Please take my hand,
Escape with me to promiseland.

For your Maker is your husband,
The LORD of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of  Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth. Isaiah 54:5

I’m so incredibly in love with Him who so overwhelmingly reveals His faithfulness anew each and every morning.

In love and trust in Him, Samantha Grace

Labor of Love

I labor not for wages.
I labor not for goods.
I labor not for fame,
For these are all the same.
I labor for Your goodness
I labor for your truth.
I labor to rejoice in You,
This, I certainly will do.
That my labor will not be vain
And that You may rejoice too.

Inspiration: Ecclesiastes 3: 9-15
