If

If we aren’t best friends what’s the point?
If I can’t hold all of your secrets, who will?
If I can’t tell you when you’re wrong,
how will we grow together in this thing?
If you don’t see the value I can add to your life,
why still hold on to such a liability?
If I’m not the first person you call when in need,
how could I ever be your lifeline?
If our life experiences aren’t synonymous,
why does that have to mean we can’t relate?
If I don’t impact your thoughts & decisions now,
what future is there between us?
If I am none of these things to you,
why are we even still a “we”?

Maybe

Maybe I want you to suffer a little bit.
Maybe I want you to feel one ounce
of the pain you may have caused me.
Maybe I want you to go out of
your comfort zone to make me feel
comfortable in this relationship again
Because YOU created this distrust.
Maybe I want you to swallow your pride,
let go of your balls and kiss my feet
in an effort to show that you care beyond
the shadow of MY doubts.

His Teachings: Seasons

Many who’ve met me in this season and see my successes tend to think I’m just lucky. No such thing. If only you knew the PAIN and trials I went through before receiving favor. If only you knew the many years I lived mad at the world, sorrowful and not trusting in Him. When I finally gave in and gave it ALL to Him my blessings poured in. Run your own race, trust in your own journey. If you get caught up comparing yourself to where others are in life you might miss your turn. Your current trial is only for a season. Let go and let God!

Quotes For The Soul: One More Time

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” –Maya Angelou

I choose to be vulnerable in love, in like even and that always leaves my heart bruised. Broken once but bruised often. But even still, the nostalgia of the perfect moments in between is why I’ll forever allow my heart to love and live in a vulnerable space. I can’t and won’t apologize for who I am and I can’t make anyone see the beauty in such a scary, thrilling and risky approach. I can only continue “to trust love one more time and always one more time.”
