Inspired by…

At this moment I’m needing to write… No focus but to press play on different songs and then let the writing flow freely from me… and so, here we are… random streams…


~~Song:  Pearl Cadillac by Gary Clark Jr.~~

When love was fierce, we inspired each other. Nothing but living the day-to-day.  First thoughts of each other on the mental and sending love via text, via voice, via “step outside and give me a hug”… now those days have turned to complications. This guitar contains the heavy sorrows that encase my heart. My heart strains against the weight. Pulsating, pulsating. A sweet moment of pause and a resurfacing of a memory. Let it sit: “I don’t want to let you down. Ooh woah, I only wanna make you proud.” Reality smashes down full force. Bring my tears back and drowning me, dear guitar. Let me heal through your strums… “If I could I’d give you the world”… *fade me to black*


~~Song: Steady Love by India Arie ~~

Joy. A Smile peeks from my heart

Hope and love watered these seeds

Past pains smothered, Resurrection

A path paved by the Son’s rays

Grateful for a steady love

God, you are good

“He touches my soul and my spirit”


Goodness, I love this song. No, I’m not in a relationship but this song instantly makes me sway and just smile inside out. This is definitely a blessing of a complement of a companion for the journey that only God can construct with His plan. Steady love from God and steady love for the moments of each day. This song is a choice of love and vulnerability. It’s a celebration of the individual and the union. Snap and rock and hum. Let gratitude just coat your spirit. It really is a shame how much this has been on replay. You’d think I had a special person in my life.


~~Song: So Will I (100 Billion X) by Hillsong Worship ~~

This song and Total Praise just make me stand with my hands raised and heart just open… God, I need you to speak to me. I see your presence. I see your creation. I see your light even on this dark, evil earth. The magnificence, the splendor, the gravity of a power greater than myself. I am humbled. Thank you for your grace. Thank you for your mercy. I lift and cry out for your healing, your fullness, your love overflowing in my life and all that encounter you. May we be carriers of your light and allow it to minister to others. You know their needs. You know their desires. Your plan is more than we can understand or construct. Our faith and trust reside in you. “I can see your heart in everything you’ve done.”
