Something for me
I am a representative, ambassador, and spokesperson for battle scars.
Self inflicted wounds were created by a silver spoon.
Low self esteem use to be my life rule; use to run with deceptive fools, which was cruel.
No father figure, letís paint a bigger picture, no mother, I guess thatís why my emotions were always smothered; because she was supposed to be my cover.
My sister left earth early and gave my soul a blister and my circumstances turned into a result of a repeated twister.
Neglected, misused, and abused, stranded from lifeís tune.
No past nurturing to let this constant flower bloom.
In the midst of all the self destructive tragedy grooves; I turn to Jesus.
With Christ I gain my life I lose, to his call, I canít refuse.
Heís the answer to all lifeís clues.
I must carry my own cross.
For my renewed mind, He bled over 2000 years ago, just so I could live.
They made Him carry his own dogwood tree.
Weights of pressure and rugged intentions shaved my image that was full of blemish.
Now my soul has been replenished.
He was misunderstood; they nailed Him to the cross, nails in His hands, they pierced Him in His sides, and they nailed Him in his feet.
They made the crown of thorns on his head run deep.
He put the devil in defeat.
This is how
All of my life, Iíve waited for a resurrecting moment like this; his love for me takes me into pure bliss.
I never knew
He has all power to change what you use to be, into who you should be.
Heís all seeing, all knowing, and full of all wisdom.
Heís omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient.
He is simply God in trinity- the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Heís the creator of smooth, clean lyrics.
My scars have healed and now the word of God is my daily meal.
I am a warrior, no longer in chains, I canít be killed.
Jesus erased my pain.
So are you ready for battle?
What about your
What took place in your life that made you a stronger person today?
Live life the battle scars way, donít play, run the race, and flow at Godís pace.
Now you know me a little bit.
