“Get Yourself Together”

​You cannot possibly run forever,

So you may as well get yourself together,

Inspite of the storm and the outpouring of rain,

As well as the heartache and the gut wrenching pain,

You best well get yourself together,

I mean, eventually things will get better.

ASPIRE

ASPIRE:
For many hours until about 30 minutes ago I was feeling a little down. And that’s ok because I’m human and I fight battles too.  But in the very midst of my (self) drawn out moment I hear “ASPIRE STACY!” How many of you know that we can bite that bait and lay down on things instead of giving the enemy walking papers?? So I asked aspire to what??
Aspire to rise above your limitations,
Aspire to move beyond adversity,
Aspire to jump over life’s hurdles,
Aspire to climb above and over your mountains,
Aspire to look past the naysayers, downers, pretenders and purpose killers,
Aspire to be all that God has created you to be,
Hold your head up that you may clearly see what HE has shaped you to be.
Get up!!! Look up!!! Suit up!!! And keep moving…

“WHO”

Who is it that can give me direction and inspiration?
Who is it that will give me strength and motivation?
Who is it that can give me Agape love and affection?
And Who can I depend on for around the clock protection?
Who can I literally talk to all day long?
And Who can I depend on when everyone else is gone?
Who will never leave me and have never forsaken me?
And Who has broken these chains of bondage to set me free?
Who, I say WHO can I walk with whether it be day or night?
And Who can I depend on when I  need to stand and fight?
Who can I look to when feeling lost and lowly,
And Who can I approach behind the veil in awe and boldly?
Who will stick closer to me than any other?
And Who will give me the words to speak when my tongue wants to stutter?
Who, I say WHO can I trust always and forever?
That WHO would be my Heavenly Father, and truly there is no one better!

“MORE TIME”

More time was what he wanted but could not have,
And he desired to treasure it all again, to live life and laugh,
Yet life as he knew it was quickly flashing before his eyes,
As his organs began to malfunction, he cried for more time,
He said, “If I could do it over I’d do things alot diffrently!”
But it wasn’t until death was staring him in the face he received an epiphany,
That he had taken all of the many close calls given him for granted,
And time had run its course, God was now calling as heaven chanted,
“Please give me more time Father,” he said as he continuously wept,
For he wasn’t quite ready to go to his heavenly home just yet,
But he knew it was a matter of time so he began to get his earthly house in order,
As he faced the realization that these earthly bodies are not immortal,
Back into the ground he knew his earthly shell would be buried,
So time was of the essence therefore he knew he had to hurry,
Not completely making the fact that he was about to pass known,
He spent day and night with family with no desire to be alone,
Until the moment was at hand, it was then he sent them on an errand,
And he put things in order where they would be easily apparent,
He knew he was about to breathe his last breath on this side,
But he knew it would have killed his wife to stand there and watch him die,
So he did what he knew to do in order to ease some of her upcoming pain,
And he made sure his last few moments were spent wisely and not in vain,
More time was what he desired but knew time had run its course,
Therefore he decided not to fight anymore and submitted without force,
And although that moment he had with his family would be his last,
He left behind the type of memories that would continue to last and last!  

“Look Up!”

The enemy wants to kill me,
He wants nothing more than to sift us like wheat,
He wants to bring forth doubt, chaos and confusion,
Oh yes, he wants to take our minds off of Jesus,
Because when our minds wander off, the enemy can play,
And as we begin thinking of our circumstances he begins to have his way,
Yet we have to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus,
Because only HE can put back together the scattered pieces,
Are you broken, downtrodden and on the verge of giving up?
Just stop where you are and in the midst of it all, LOOK UP!
LOOK UP to the Holy One that provides strength in weakness,
LOOK UP to the Holy One that gives peace when you feel no peace,
LOOK UP to the Holy One who is the Author and Finisher of our faith,
LOOK UP to the Only ONE that can stand adversity and the evil one directly in the face,
LOOK UP to the Holy ONE who loves you unconditionally,
LOOK UP to the Holy ONE that is ALL YOU NEED.
Call on HIS name, submit to God and the devil must flee,
Come before the Holy One with Gratitude, Thanksgiving and Praise,
Bless His Holy Name because HE is more than worthy!
Glory Hallelujah Father, I thank you for saving me.
Through valleys high and valleys low,
Through the scorching in the fiery furnace, I’m coming out like pure gold,
At the name of Jesus, not even demons can stay,
Call on him throughout your day and watch them run away,
For what the enemy meant for bad, God will turn to good,
Just hold tight, trust him, and watch him bring you through!
I’m in a battle with the Mighty One in the forefront,
And the battle is already won, I rejoice because God never steps off post,
He is the One Who is, Who Was and Is to come,
Give the highest glory today and everyday to the Most Holy One!

“Don’t Want To Let Go”

She knows in her heart it’s time to let go,
Yet when she steps to the edge she won’t break ahold,
Just like a baby bird she’s afraid to leave the nest,
Afraid of what’s above and beyond the comfort of that nest,
Afraid to say goodbye because goodbye sounds like forever,
Afraid to break the unity they have built so strongly together,
Through obstacles, uphill battles and pain, they’ve conquered much,
In times of despair and weariness, it was your hand in which she clutched,
So how does she let go in order to face the path ahead?
How does she enter into the territory in which she dared not tread?
Yet she knows down in the depth of her being, she has to let go,
Because time won’t allot her to stay at the edge of the nest anymore!
