The Darling 

Everyone seethes

The darling

Oh it seems

To be favor

It seems a

Sweet kiss

But the favor

Is fiendish

The worship

A leash

Keeping her

Sedated by

The applause


Poppies before Oz

The cheap replica

For the presence

Of God

He loves the


He knows her heart

He longs to

Hold her

Keeping her

Set apart

They use

The darling


Her charm

She knows

Her father

Will rescue

Her from harm


For such a

Time as this

Fear Not

Unlocking Your Potential 


What is “potential”? 
I like to think of it as simply “Unrealized Ability”

I saw this list recently of 10 keys to unlocking potential. 

            10 keys to unlocking potential:
You must establish a relationship with God — the source of your potential.

You must understand how God made you to function: by faith and by love.

You must know your purpose in life (your potential was given for just that).

You must identify the resources that help unlock your potential.

You must know and find or create the right environment you need to function at your peak performance level. Part of this is daily contact with God.

You must realize that potential is expressed through hard work.

You must cultivate your potential. Fertilize it like a seed.

You must guard your potential — from laziness, distractions, and compromise.

You must share your potential. No potential exists for itself.

You must understand and cooperate with the limitations God has placed on your potential. Remember, you’re not God! When you violate these limitations, your potential actually decreases.

                                    ~ Miles Munroe 

What do you think?
Are you ready to realize your ability and unlock your potential? 
A great place to start is in God’s Word.
Don’t ever let the world tell you what you aren’t-

Let God show you who you really are.  

Grab your Key (The Bible) and start unlocking your potential today!

Stop Striving And Start Thriving 

Sometimes we work harder, do more, grip tighter, and grind our teeth more thinking that is what God needs from us to earn His love and redemption. 
What if I told you that is not the case at all?
Our strength has nothing to do with it.  

God is not impressed with performances. He simply desires to be in your presence and wants you to practice living in His presence continually fully relying on Him, moving in tune with His Holy Spirit. 
Redemption is all about God and His lavish Grace and Love for us and actually it works the best in our weaknesses.  
              Stop striving & Start thriving
