Slaying Hopelessness!!

At times it feels like we are broken beyond repair.
This depth of despair has no returning back..
Yet He is stronger than grief and grave
There is no valley beyond his reach
In the darkest hour he shines forth
like a billion sunshines slaying hopelessness!
And when he is for me! WHAT CAN STAND AGAINST!


ప్రా - అర్థన మనవి

భాష మోయలేనంత బరువు మనసు మీద...
కన్నీరుగా ఉబికివస్తోంది... ఆపగలనా...
ఈ కన్నీళ్ళు ప్రాణం పోయగలవా
పొనీ నిలుపగలవా...

ప్రాణమైన మనుషులు కొవ్వొత్తిలా కరిగిపొతున్నారు..
నా ప్రార్థన సరిపొతుందా ...
కన్నీటి భాషని విన్నపంగా స్వీకరిస్తావా..
నాలో ఉండి నాతో కూడా వేడుకుంటావా ..

Processing grief with HIM is the best way to process grief. He is ALWAYS faithful to lift us up and walk us through the dark night. Learnt of a family member facing terminal illness. Heart broken and processing grief.
 If you have a story of greif. Take Heart HE IS THE SUPREME! over all we face!

Closing The Distance

I realize now.
Distance comes easy.
Distance is inevitable
all I have to do is be wrapped up in my own world
Oblivious to the truth that in distance iam dying...

Distance is easy and mostly feels safe!
Safe from hurt or hurting you
Safe from disappointment/being disappointing.
Although I am desperately missing the love- I have once known.
The goodness I have tasted and seen.

I'd still say distance is easy.
It helps my heart grow cold.
Even at times when there are daggers piercing  through..
I can bleed but not be in pain.
Distance feels safe and easy.

"But the Father having seen the son at DISTANCE runs to him"   ( Luke 15:17)

You have always been the faithful father.
For every time I chose to take a step closer ..
You ran to close the distance between.

Once again to vow..
Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither present nor future, neither height nor depth. Nothing in all creation ...
Nothing is able to separate us
from love of God the Father  given to me in Christ the Lord!

Also the one I would live for!

Fought the roaches for me so I wouldn't be scared 
Ran to fight the unseen enemy in the dark coz I was afraid.
I didn't need a knight on horse shining and armored.
He was my hero.
The one I would die for! 

As a teacher he is a festival that came in class everyday.
As a preacher he is a lover of the cross on display.
As a writer and philosopher he valued people always and ever more than money.
He was my hero. 
The one I wanted to live up to.

He's an example in kindness to poor and needy . I admired him
His poetry set fire in places dark and shady. I Adored him.
He won hearts everywhere. People sang his glory.Always proud of him!
He is my hero! 
The one I would die for!

Love greater and stronger than grave
He stalled death for my sake. 
He stood as an epitome of Fathers love!
He is my hero! The one I would die for! 
Also the one I would live for! 

-ever yours
