UntitledWhat kind of love has set me free and bound me at the same time?Untitled1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The love of my one true Savior; because of this I chose to bind
His righteousness in my heart.
Fear has fled from me, and I feel powerful as a lion, but kind as a dove.
This fearlessness comes from my donning the armor of the Holy Spirit.
I know Jesus is with me as I charge into spiritual warfare.
The battle is never ending, but He provides the strength when I am weak.
My heart in prayer is my shield, and His word my sword.
The attacks will continue to grow, but I know in the Father's power I will not submit in this duel.
Many times I will waiver in my resolve, but His perfect love shall renew me once again.
This strength that dwells within me is not of this world.
I must continue on the path less trod.
It may be the straight and narrow, but it is not the easiest path.
It took so long to find; may I not stray even in the darkest of days.
This is the main road, and may I help my brethren and comrades in Jesus.
If it is You
Live abortionHello I am, Jenna well I was going to be. Today my mommy went to this hospital thing, and they made her have me. They called it induced Labor. I was born and my parents wouldnt even hold me. The nurse took me to this soiled linen room. She wouldnt hold me either, she placed me right near the urinals, needles, and dirty sheets. They just left me there. I was so scared and I struggled to breath. Then another nurse came in and saw me and began to cry. She picked me up and began to rock me as I felt like I was about to sleep. She kept holding me up and looking my chest, I wondered what she was doing, but was too tired to think about it. Then everything went black and I was up in heaven. What happened to me, why was I hear. Why could I not be down on earth with my mommy or maybe the nice nurse. It turns out that my mommy had an abortion, it was called live birth abortion. She was just going to throw me away, even though if she had waited just a littleLive abortion6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This

or even today.
Others may mock you,
and revile you.
You're friends may even abandon you,
leaving you alone.
But you'll never really be alone
You'll always remain forever,
forever in the arms of Jesus.
And that is enough.
God will never shun you.
Even when you turn away,
forever will he love you.
In love for you,
and for the world,
Jesus was mocked and beaten,
shunned and abandoned.
you may be shunned away,
you may be abandoned and mocked,
but you will also be, sheltered.

"NO!!!" I screamed back as I stared at the water below.
Today was the day I would jump off London Bridge and take my own life away. I didn't care anymore. No matter how hard I tried, I never would be as pretty as the other girls. I will always be the nobody in the back of the classroom. I suffered from depression for too long and I didn't want to keep living my life this way. Today I shall end it all.
"What's going on?!" I heard a man say from above me.
"Is someone jumping?" I heard another girl say. I didn't dare look up. I didn't want to see who would witness my death. I just wanted to end it. I need to jump now before I get tempted to look up.
"Clara, go back into the TARDIS and get my old really long scarf from the wardrobe!" I heard the man

I learned who I was going to be today. You were going to name me Mirabella, the name you had always wanted to give to your baby if you had a girl. You loved the name because it was unusual and you always wanted a daughter who would stand out of the crowd. Id have looked like daddy with my brown hair and blue eyes but I would have had your face. Youd want to spend every moment with me from the minute I was born and I would love you.
On my first day of kindergarten, Id cling to your leg but once you finally pried me off, I would have so much fun at school that Id never want to leave. Id get straight As all through school and Id spend a lot of time reading. That always gave you something to brag about since none of the other kids would ever read. I would have had quite an overactive imagination and you would constantly tell me I should write some of the books that I read.
You and daddy would look so proud on my first day of high school

When you sign your name on the waiting list, you're signing your child's name on the Death Note.
When you sit and watch the clock tick, you're watching your child's life clock.
When you say it is a mistake, you're saying your child's existence is a mistake.
It is not right.
Because of you, two more eyes will never see.
Because of you, one more mouth will never laugh and smile.
Because of you, two more hands will never hold yours.
Because of you, two more legs will never run and play.
Because of you, one more heart will never beat.
A child is a miracle.
Don't destroy it.

Not caring what goes by.
Well I never seen a sight so dreary
A man so weary
And shattered in between love and hate.
Give me a reason to hate the wicked
When they deserve love.
Oh, give me a reason to look down
Without the eye of mercy.
And would you give me a reason to hate this man
When he has only made a mistake.
We are all human, sacrificing what we love
For the things we want.
But I can say that with the weight of my sins
I won't get to fly
From the mess I made, oh
The mess I made.
A woman worries all alone
Wondering what she will do on her own.
Looking to the skies the tears stream down
Like the river she was in; destined to drown.
Scared out of her mind of what will happen next.
Give me a reason to hate the wicked
When they deserve love.
Oh, give me a reason to look down
Without the eye of mercy.
And would you give me a reason to hate this woman
When she has only made a mistake.
We are all human, we sacrifice what we want
Spiritual RetaliationHumans, being made in the image of God, are loved dearly by their heavenly Father. However, we also have an enemy that hates us, and will do anything to lead us away from the destiny that the LORD calls us to. Christ promises those who are loyal to Him that they will inherit the kingdom of heaven, but we are also promised the relentless deception and attack that comes from the devil.Spiritual Retaliation3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Matthew 24:9 - "Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are My followers."
1 Peter 5:8 - "Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour."
There are no quick fixes to keep off enemy attacks war between the powers of light and darkness is constant. However, there are some crucial factors to fighting back in the Spirit:

Waiting for the day when her life would be complete.
Crying her heart out for the ones she loves most
While all the other people have everything to boast.
She struggles with pains, she struggles with herself
Is there anyone you can think to care besides yourself?
Hope is gone her fears are strong
The struggling days go on and on.
She prays at night and hopes for light
And all of a sudden everything’s bright.
He comes and holds her tight in his arms
Her breathing, heart, and mind He calms.
Yes there’s a girl on the corner of the street
No longer waiting for her life to be complete.
Praying at night for the ones she loves most
While all other people have nothing but ghosts.
She is happy and free, she loves herself
Is there any happier day you can think of yourself?

It is the part of the brain that runs free.
It is the push behind creativity.
Imagination and creativity go hand in hand.
Each pushing the other in the right direction.
One without the other is unproductive .
They are the release from our day to day lives.
If we put our hearts into whatever the result of what these two will be; it is bound to be amazing.
Many a priceless piece of art ,and inspiring literature has had these two behind it.
This amazing duo is one of the reasons that life isn't quite so bleak.
A world without books and paintings would be a very boring place indeed.

When can I get off the hurtful ride
They threaten to eat me alive
Anger, fear, and desire
A few of the many that can rage inside
I turn away
There's only one place to go
Into loving arms
The arms of the son, Jesus Christ
The only one who can save me
The only one who knows me fully
And is there for me when others fail
Life isn't all sunshine and roses
But God sends storms to liven the garden of your soul

A sea of tears wouldn't even scratch the surface of the agony I am in.
Every day like the one before; an endless drag through life.
Emotions and pain course through my endless soul.
My mind is screaming for understanding of my heart.
I feel as if my heart has been shattered; making me fear the day I have to be vulnerable.
The knowledge of people is clouded from my vision.
What goes through their minds; I know not.
I know I have to be the one to make myself make it through each gut-wrenching day.
I cannot claim responsibility for those who surround me.
Their foolish ways will leave them in ruin.
I can let each person know these things, but my pleas fall upon deaf ears.
I will continue in this trudge in life.
My very limbs weighed down by those around me.
Each day going through this sludge.
I have to be the one to continue my battle; though it be uphill.
The reward at the top is greater than
the fights I must endure.
My time here is short, and each
