Today I Will

Yesterday I said, “I can’t. ” Tomorrow I think, “I can.” Today, right now… I will. I will walk away from oppression and strife. I will walk out of yesterday’s grief and into today’s peace. I don’t need a New Year’s Resolution to start living. I’m fixing my mind on good things, holy things and remembering that God knows the plans He has for me. He has plans to give me a hope and a future.
Expelling the fear and welcoming His light.  Tomorrow is not promised to me or to you. Today I will!


Love? Life?

I loved really hard once. ¬†But that love betrayed me, slayed me and left me penniless and forgotten in a dense well of sorrow and grief. ¬†Another love I found and swore I’d never lose it. So I gave myself away completely, denied my inner thoughts and ultimately forgot my own name. I hated myself but couldn’t let go. I needed that love, to be held in that love, cradled and squeezed until…I couldn’t breathe. Tried to let go but life was ripped away from me. Had my chance at love but forfeited my opportunity to live. –Cheylly Purch
