Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

In my own retrospective I see how complex life is. It’s a constant string of events of cause and effects. Some good. Some not so good. We are all on a collective journey. Some to more insanity. Some to a place of healing. Which one will you choose?

Daily word prompt: Retrospective


What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree?

Family and friends make up the delicious pie of life. While bitterness fosters the box of grand illusions of hurt. Where do we turn in this dark and chaotic time of ours? The TV is another box of confinement. Any screen, hand held or not is for that matter.

Is God in our midst? Or He just laughing on the sidelines? Reveal who you are Papa on this rotating rock of madness and grace. We need You more than ever now!

We get so complacent like a spider in a web. So comfy. Shake us up Lord to make us sons and daughters for Your upcoming new Earthly Kingdom! 💐🙏👸🤴

I count stars on my fingers One Two and Three Until they turn into infinity I count from zero again And reach to certain certainty I count till my fingers are tired And eyes strain with fading shine Somewhere in me a two year old is still alive Surviving just another night I count stars […]

sunshine window

Sunshine, where is the sunshine?

Why is this cloak of darkness all around me?

This orb of light represents a channel of peace

But where is mine?


People go to and fro

Their little banks of loans in their hearts

Or trying to win the lotto of the soul

But we have more control than we like to show

Not Love

Carly (message in stanza)

Am I loved?

My heart was smudged

Is love just an action

Out of a response of connection?

Or an attitude of the heart to see the best in someone?


I know love is a give and take

But sometimes me you forsake

In the name of reputation

That is honor and pride

Not love


It all comes down to being insecure

Let’s build a rock on you and I bonding more

Let’s ignite your gifts and mine

And dismantle the ones that don’t make sense

All in the name of love

I miss You Lord
Take our hearts
Make it one accord

I hate being lonely
But You come in
And fill this empty vase
Your hands cover my space
They are bigger than my body

I am exposed before you
I have nothing left to hide
You ask me if I’ll stay true

I would hate being unfaithful
To my God
I hold His big heart
We are forming a work of art
Love with every brush stroke

Transformation is afoot
We will be at the gallery
Where beauty and originality is put

God change me
From the inside out
I am ready for You
My vibrant spirit is here too
Put our love on display

We are all going through an evolution to better ourselves. While I believe satan’s evil’s plan was to break us and shaped into beings who don’t trust God. A chipping way process to make us less and dependent on God because all of the pain and injustice we observe and experience in the world. We would be left with only the belief that we were forsaken by our Maker. But do you find in our existence you hope the opposite is true? While I find that evil schemes and followers of evil plans are prevalent everywhere and increasing. I believe because of the fall of man we all tempted to do things against God’s will. But I like to believe that humanity deep down is suffering and looking for help. I believe that we are on the cusp of major changes economically, spiritually, relational there is a whole lot of Earth shaking going on now.


God is using this interesting time to be alive to help us chip away our insecurities, doubts and bad habits and attitudes. The devil hates and will do anything for us to think this is the worst time to be alive. Don’t let him win! We are all the fringes of major love changes. For examples, as harmful and exhausting social media and instant communications like texting can be it motivates to dig deeper to inspect our limited beliefs about ourselves and of others. To purify our hearts and minds we must going through an uncomfortable and vulnerable refining process first. Also sometimes health issues reveal who the true Healer is. And an imperative reminder that physical healing and nourishment is just as important as emotional and mental healing. Hang in there. God is on our side. 🙂
