On My Brand New

Posted by Mimi on March 16, 2011 at 1:18 PM Comments comments (0)

He Redeems me daily, from sin, from me... from what worries me.

As soon as I realize I've begun to worry, I can release it.

Christ bears my burdons.  He knows the outcome.

I'm coming Home.


While I'm here there is work to do ~ God is working in and through me. 

He doesn't want me to be sickly,

But I had to get sick, so He could heal me.

By His stripes I am healed, you see.


Today is not the end, it is only the beginning.

Beginning of a new future.

New Faith.

New Work.

New Purpose.

New Health.

New Testimony.


New.


I am Brand New!



~ All GLORY TO GOD, REDEEMER, HEALER, RESTORER OF MY SOUL!  I GIVE MYSELF TO YOU THIS DAY!

What Is Family

Posted by Mimi on February 4, 2011 at 5:28 PM Comments comments (0)

What is family?

A Mom and a Dad?

A house with a yard?

Or kids?  Your best friend?

The homies?  Is that it?


Or is family acceptance?

Prayers, thoughts and well wishes.

Unconditional love, they'll reprimand and listen.

Share your pain and your tears, and in your joy and laughter.

Your family will lift you up, just praying you'll be blessed.



Dear Father, thank You for my family, especially Your family.  They are such a blessing to me!

Beacons

Posted by Mimi on February 4, 2011 at 5:17 PM Comments comments (0)

Radiant amidst the storm 

Lights the way for traveling souls 

Wandering in the dark 

Drawn towards Beacons in the night 


Child of the Light   

Christ has called you, rise up 

Cast off shadows, step into the Light 

Bask in the presence of your Glorious King

The Light of Life, Jesus 


Shine on

That Wasn't Me

Posted by Mimi on January 21, 2011 at 10:31 PM Comments comments (0)

The last time that you saw me, it might not have been me.

In fact, I hope that is the case, because I'm frightening.

You see, deep down, I'm prideful.  I take control of things.

And when things do not go my way, Watch Out!  She throwin things!

Like words that cut, down to the core, after I built you up.

Insults, cussin', yell and scream, Get Out My Face!  Shut Up!

That's real ya'll, I'm not ashamed, I'm done livin' a lie.

First repented, then moved on, and now focused on God.


When you see me, I hope that you don't see what's really me.

Instead, I hope you see the God that lives inside my being.

A smile, warm and inviting, or kind words to a stranger.

A compliment, encouragement, some time, some funds, or favors.

He loves to help, and pray for you, and I ask Him to use me.

The love you felt, that wasn't me, it came from Him you see.

I pray that when you look at me, His Light is Brightly Shinin'.

My Jesus, Savior, Redeemer, LORD, You alone are purifying!


Split Personality

Posted by Mimi on January 21, 2011 at 5:18 PM Comments comments (0)
Wake up in the morning, feeling good about the day.
Got a good night's sleep, I thank God that I'm awake.
Get the kids up off to school, say my morning prayers.
Sit down to read e-votions, and praise the man upstairs.

Think I need to run the dishes, so I start them up real quick.
Then grab the laundry, got to fold before I take a break.
So much work around the house, I don't have time to waste.
Later will be homework too, need more hours in my day.

Wait!  What am I doing?  I'm supposed to be with God!
Sit back down to focus, I know I need this time.
Oh LORD, the Word is great today, it's always what I need.
Just to be with You, make me feel brand new, any time of day.

Ring!  There goes my phone, I wonder who that is...
I say Hello, we chat it up, and now I want a snack.
Go into the kitchen and grab a bite to eat, 
Now I'm logging into Facebook, to spend more time on me.

I can't believe I'm doing this!  Oh God, how do you stand me!
I put You off, shoved to the side, but still Your grace surrounds me.
I want to seek Your face each day, to see You shine in Glory.
Your Faithfulness, it means so much, I live to tell Your story.

LORD keep me from myself, I pray.  I cannot seem to stay -
Straight on this path without Your help, Your Word: it lights my way.
Steady dreaming of the day when that glorious trumpet sounds,
Things of old will pass away, including this dead personality.

Jesus, You are the only way for me.  You are Life.

-MG



Recovery

Posted by Mimi on January 18, 2011 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

I am not alone

I was drowning

But He reached down

And rescued me

 

Only He can keep me clean

Only He can comfort

Only He can keep me from

Succumbing to Toxicity

 

He is my Joy, my Shield, and Shepherd

He gives me victory

He builds me from the inside out

Jesus: My Recovery



Withdrawal

Posted by Mimi on January 18, 2011 at 12:48 AM Comments comments (0)
Head is pounding
Waves of nausea
Make it stop
Before I collapse

How did I get here
Where will I go
I only know backwards
I need to move forward
 
Toxic is no way to live
How can I stay clean
There is One who paid the price
Through Him I’ve been Redeemed

Toxic

Posted by Mimi on January 18, 2011 at 12:26 AM Comments comments (0)

Thoughts, words, actions

Permeating my temple

Filling my soul

With violent waste

 

Clean shell outside

Burning death inside

Writhing, squirming

Suffocating

 

Rescue me

Purge this filth

That eats me alive

I am Toxic

 


Massage

Posted by Mimi on January 17, 2011 at 2:09 AM Comments comments (0)

Massage me

Work out the the stress and the knots

Muscles tight from unhappy thoughts

Release tension and anxiety

As I exhale


Massage me

Work through years of anger

Tears from past hurts

Guilt from old actions

Held so tight


Massage me

Work in me a new purpose

I yield to Your focus

Let Your hands renew

Refresh and restore

Massage me, LORD


Surrender

Posted by Mimi on January 16, 2011 at 2:59 AM Comments comments (0)

I see.

I see the things that you choose.

Things to fill the days.  Hours.  Minutes.

Numbing things...


Now I see me.

I used to live on booze.

Yessir!  Plus dope, coffee and shoes!

Regrettably I did not always make the wisest decisions...


I know.

Seeking something you can't quite reach.

How do I get there?

I just want some peace...


Peace from the chaos inside of my head.

If it don't come soon I might end up dead -

Dead in my tracks, I can't think or move.

I give up.  I can't do it.  You win.  I lose...


I surrender to YOU...

Use me to fulfill YOUR Will...

Fill me with YOUR Purpose...

And Peace in YOUR Promise...

Please, Jesus!


(Surrender is a daily thing, no exceptions or exclusions.)

A Heavenly Place

Posted by Mimi on January 15, 2011 at 12:43 PM Comments comments (0)

Knees down, hands up.

No words required.

Revel in your Father's Grace.

See Him, as you seek His face.


Weeping, laughing, immeasurable joy,

Coming from deep within.

Filling my spirit, a tune to my song.

A prayer, a praise to the Lover of the lost.


My Jesus, My Shepherd.

Healer, Redeemer, Peace Giver.

Fill me today.

Keep me tomorrow.

Take me to a Heavenly Place.

In The Gap

Posted by Mimi on January 15, 2011 at 12:13 PM Comments comments (0)

Standing in the gap.

Such a lonely place to be.

Between God and humanity.

You look, and you laugh at me,

Because I believe Jesus set me free.

 

I say to you, world:

You cannot have me!

You cannot break me!

YOU DO NOT OWN ME!

Jesus Blood has set me FREE!

 

So free I stand, now praying for you.

Praying one day you will acknowledge the truth.

Praying one day you will give in to love.

Praying one day you'll accept Jesus Blood.

And stand strong, in the gap.

 


No More Pain...

Posted by Mimi on January 15, 2011 at 1:11 AM Comments comments (0)

My pain was different.

It came at a different time in my life.

It taught me different lessons.


My pain was different.

Because my work is different from yours.

But I learned to love my lessons,

And you must also learn to love yours.


My pain was different.

But I know you will live, despite all your tears.

Because God can calm ALL of your fears!

Release this to Him, You must fully give in.


Give into the love that can wash it away.

Jesus paid the price for your pain.

Give Him your hurts, your struggles, your fears.

Let Him heal the wounds that cut deep all these years.


His pain was different.

He bore the sins of the entire human race.

His love can wash away your pain,

And replace it with joy.


He paid for you.



Just Breathe

Posted by Mimi on January 15, 2011 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Everything is moving so fast.

          ~ Just Breathe ~

People, schedules, commitments,

PDA, notebook, wired 24/7.

          ~ Just Breathe ~

Hustle, struggle, try to keep pace.

Repeat.  Regress.  Resign.

          ~ Just Breathe ~


Let Go.

Let God.

Let God do it.

Let God do it for you.

          ~ Just Breathe ~


Faithful, gracious, loving,

Bountiful mercy.

Eternity.


Breathe in me.

Fresh outlooks...

Posted by Mimi on January 10, 2011 at 7:02 PM Comments comments (0)

Been feeling restless lately, and I figured out why!  I've been chasing things that bring me pleasure (intercession and helping are things that bless me), and avoiding the things that will bless my Heavenly Father!  I've felt like I am supposed to write a book for a while now... going on several years, maybe 4 or 5... and also to do this blog, but that has just been since summer 2010.


Last night I finally realized that I just need to do what He wants me to do.  So here I am, blogging.  I realized I already have the time built into my schedule to blog and write, and that I have one main message: Get God or get on, because He is the only way to LIFE. 


I woke up this morning more ready and committed than ever to writing the book.  Plus, I am excited at the idea of writing more poems.  I used to write a lot of poems... here's what came out this morning:



Passion for Him

Runnin' towards Him

Can't ignore Him

Spread my wings


Now I'm Soarin...


Can't wait to see

What awaits me

On this journey

Cast off insecurity

 

As I fly...
