We've signed that truce a couple hundred times
Still step on the same couple thousand mines
You break apart, make up, break apart, make up...

the suffering i have danced through.
the tears i have bathed in.
I rejoice my survival
Tori Mar 12
We are the rejoiceful few,
when broken down, we rose anew.
Our bitter hearts we threw away,
and fed them to our wallflower days.
Beneath the weight of hurt we bent,
and tempered every sweeping wind.
And when our time for vengeance came,
we loved our enemies all the same.
A new year begins, with hectic schedules every day,
Anxieties overwhelm us- in school; work; in every possible way
Often we tend to focus solely on the challenging and stressful circumstances,
Forgetting the power and the promises of God, which can help us
Our doubts and tough circumstances may come from the powers and principalities of the evil world,
The spiritual war we face each and every day- between spirit and flesh; we may feel we are in a whirl
The evil one tries to make us doubt God’s love and provision during the trying times;
To counter it, we must have our eyes fixed on Christ to be comforted that His love is sublime
When we come before God to acknowledge our weaknesses and inability to stand by our own strength,
Through His mercy, we are beholden to His love and grace which comforts our soul when we get tense
When countless worries come, we must render these known to God in prayer;
His comforting presence reminds us that He cares and that He shall take away all our doubts and fears

Challenges and anxieties from the world can afflict a believer and cause him to go astray,
But if we exercise our faith through prayer, God will help make these anxieties go away
“My child, for all those times when you were full of anxiety and fear,
It was I, who pulled you through; I’ve always been near.”
Inspiration: Psalm 94:18-19

Anxieties often overwhelm us in our daily life, worries come, challenges and all life's strife gets thrown at us. We feel dismayed, discouraged, heartbroken, lonely, so often we forget- that God is here for us! Psalm 94:18-19 tells us about how God cares for us, especially during these times He wants to help us; He is always there, ready to hear our prayers and help us overcome and conquer these problems- but many of the time we do not care to pray to Him to ask Him for help!

Psalm 94:18-19
18 If I say, “My foot slips,”
Your mercy, O Lord, will hold me up.
19 In the multitude of my anxieties within me,
Your comforts delight my soul.

Let our hearts truly be glad and find hope in Him! May God bless whoever is reading this!

I told you how I felt
but you turned the other cheek
I was basically rejected
I feel so small, so very weak

I found the reason why I always keep to myself
I hate this feeling of pain
Of being rejected like I'm not good enough
This will happen never again

I'm tired of letting people in
I'm tired of being alone
I'm tired of being rejected and hurt
This is it that feelings have gone

I'm not gonna let you in
I'm not gonna let you see my tears fall
I'm not gonna let you see me hurt
I'm not gonna let you bring me down most of all

I told you how I felt
Because I wanted you to know
But apparently, you would never feel the same
So I guess its time for me to go
I know what its be rejected, dejected. Only my story's different. He said he liked me too, and then he forgot me, like I was nothing. Loves a royal pain. it makes you thinks of the good times you have shared with that person and the more you think about it the more you cry... Tears come as I pray; but needless, even if the whole world forsakes me, God is still here with me, and that's all I'll ever need :") "He comforts us so we can comfort others", stay strong and press on everyone!

"I love you."
Those three words didn't mean a thing.
I thought we were meant to be,
But I guess it was just a fling.
There's a wall around my heart, stopping me from crying,
But there's something inside of me
That feels like it's dying.
You were everything I needed, cared for.
I chose you, but now my heart is sore.
You will never realize that you were my best friend too,
But believe me when I say this,
I really did love you.
It's been 2 long years, i thought then that we were meant for each other, but well he broke his promises, left me there to suffer. Even when he knew I was hurting badly, he chose to ignore me, chose another girl over me. We were 12. Well time really flies quickly, but thank God for helping me get through the tough times. Press on everyone!

You made me feel like I was flying,
Like no matter who said what you would be there to pull me back into the clouds,
Like I was something special,
You were the first person to ever make me feel this way,
Then when I realized it was all just an illusion,
The fun ended and I hit the concrete with a cold, hard, awakening,
You left me stranded to die alone,
You left me there to cry myself to sleep at night,
It hurt so much to hear you say I was just a toy,
Something you could play with,
Someone who you wanted to wallow in your misery with you,
You ruined me,
I am no longer the girl with the bright eyes or beautiful smile,
I am now the girl drowning in her tears,
Who can barely breathe at the simple thought of what we had,
The girl who deep down, is slowly dying,
The worst thing is that you can never know,
You will forever more think of me as the girl you threw to the side and didn't hurt,
I am so much more that you can never see,
I will forever be, the girl you ruined...
Where to start...
this made me sad and emotional, I have a similar story only different on the part of being a rebound. I encourage you to keep going, forgiving is living and it makes life bearable. Pick yourself up and it won't be easy but get the closure you need writing is good do more venting to someone you feel close to and just as I have you will get over this in time. May we be strengthened and pray to be able to get through the trying times! :)

I said I wouldn't write about you
                                                            b­ut who am I
           to strip myself of what makes me live
in art I've surfaced my own sins

                                                           ­                      and some of yours.
                                                          ­                                         I suppose

I've taken space you've asked of me
                                                     needing to blockmyface
                                                     ­                    whenyouonceplaced
           my name into your skin

in a quiet champagne trip and
indente­d ribs

                                          Take a sip.

If it's "poison" that touches your lips

                                  THEN you could've skipped
                                                         ­              dipped
                                                          ­             flipped   me onto the piles of rubbled                   glass
torn from your walls
placed carelessly cornered or left simply to fall
                                                            ­                                       switched in

some contorted reverse
                                            though my heart refuses to pin you as
     when these colors emerged

Two Years of swells i Chose to forget
                                                  each time that i stayed when I knew

i should've left.
When Everybody told me                      Better was Mine
                                       I wouldn't give in to believe that your heart was

From the moment I knew I'd clutched your stairway-ed arms
                 Ease My Ailing,
sweaty palms in driver-ed cars
Kermit Ruffins and philly beer bars
roller coasters, Christmas lights
                           endless pen-streamed journaled binds
An unopened book
                         pages still blank
                  more than a stitch to ease the pain of your name

   though i mustn't Complain
                                                        ­             ...and I still can't Rejoice

But I'll watch the sunrise through Uncommon windows
              trace folds of your fingers -- sweet struggled wake on your pillow
                            and dance foreign waltz in clipped black-wig nights
           plated sweet nourriture to watch your delight

Watch you dance decorated as I set in Pride
                                hold me to standards --yet bend when I'm Right

Speak to me softly in quiet teared nights
         tell me I'm beautiful when femininity cannot find
                                                            ­                                                 me
Drape me in curtains of love and Security
        Fit so Securely in the curves of my body

Smile in shyness--like absence of tongue
                as your cheeks lift to hide your eyes
                                                            ­                                  in thin rungs

Gold plates of your stomach and skin over hips
           saying my name through pleasurepursed lips
Pounding the pavement in carouseled times
not only Read, but Returned all my rhymes

The fortress is daunting
                     I'm brooding and swift
Sometimes the brick slips but the flips never Switch

So if russe folk dances and stealing lost tea
                     causes your coldness, just slightly, to bleed
                                       Remember what I did
                                                             ­                     --to, your troubles, ease
                               Don't say for this new year I didn't
Prioritize your Needs
                                       MARRY THEM, by all of all means
i never pushed you to choose, instead, me

I've learned my doors close,
       i woke to realize
                                             when those i thought open I faced and
                                                                ­  denied

because nothing matches the pulses and start
                  --the warmth in my chest when your palms
                                                                ­                                 press my heart

that's why with your Run i cannot understand
           feelings and highs
                                                           ­            unsustainable lands
I never demand     -       I never imply

                        but im also neverwrong
   and i can't shake  

                                                        ­                                         You and I.
CHRISTmas isn’t just about glittering decorations,
Or simply celebrating it as a tradition
It isn’t just about the delectable food and drinks,
Nor about the world, as many people think

CHRISTmas is about rejoicing in the birth of our wonderful Saviour-
Jesus Christ, who was sent down from heaven lovingly by the Father
It is about delighting with great joy because of the Father’s great love for us,
His greatest gift of eternal life, none other gifts can surpass!

CHRISTmas is about giving, and for showing that we care,
For honouring the Lord Jesus Christ, with the gifts of love we share
A frequent lesson we learn from the Bible is to give wholeheartedly to others who have less,
Our love for the Lord Jesus Christ, through the gifts, we want to express

This CHRISTmas, instead of simply decorating christmas trees,
Let the light of Jesus in us, be what others see
As we shop, give, fellowship and enjoy the CHRISTmas season,
Let us keep in mind the important truth- the Lord Jesus is the reason!
Merry Christmas!!!
