Stone Tongues

"My arms are filled with stones... I'll stay silent for the ride... breathless & suspended... it's impossible to love a stone tongue... I exit and feel myself coming into my skin..." - from Sarah Aked's "Galatea on 8th Street"

I’m tired… (Personal. New prayer.)

I’m tired of people not really knowing me, of living in a world where I don’t really feel seen. Not in the sense that I want to be popular or want more attention or anything like that. I just feel like I leave church on Sundays to retreat back into myself in order to avoid the world because it doesn’t have a whole lot to offer me. I just wish I had more of an opportunity to show people who I am and be a more present witness… I’ll keep praying for God to direct my path and use me to touch the lives if those I come into contact with in whatever way he sees fit.

Still Processing

I am not
who I once was.
You were never
who you said
you were.

We are both changing,
we have both changed.

I have never know an apology
to hurt so deeply.

After years of hanging on
your every word,
after 10 minutes
I hung up the phone.

I forgive you
but forgetting
has never been
so slow.

spiritualinspiration:

The scripture tells us that we shouldn’t follow the pattern of the world. What is the pattern of the world? It’s the constant striving to do more, be more and have more that only leads to weariness, emptiness and frustration. That’s not what God intends! Instead, focus your thoughts on the Word of God because when you make the Word your number one focus, something supernatural takes place.

Only you can control the doorway to your mind. Nobody can do this for you. You choose what you meditate on and what you set before your eyes. I encourage you to stay on the offensive and diligently guard your mind and heart because when you do things God’s way, you get God’s results - life, peace and joy!

This is the official ‘i care’ symbol. This is how it works:
Basically you reblog this, and your followers know that you care and that they can message you about anything anon or not and you will reply back or at least look at their message.
