Reliance

I’ve come to an awesome and somewhat terrifying reality. I have no family to rely on in this life. I’m a yankee far from “home,” living alone in the South with a traumatic brain injury and having survived a serious suicide attempt with a shotgun…Things are a bit hectic and tough lol. What am IContinue reading “Reliance”

Edit

Opaque, seethrough, totally bare My mind and my thoughts are not concealed He knows my past, my present and all that’s to come We lie to ourselves “He’ll never know,” so the story goes Our book is bare, every thought and letter fully aware We lie to ourselves thinking we’ll do it on our ownContinue reading “Edit”

Under pressure

We’re all under pressure, right? Most defiently: pressure from the inside, pressure from the outside, pressure all around. Family, friends, work, finances, expectations, decisions, etc., etc. A lot going on each and everyday! Mr. Bowie, and Mercury had it right! 😉 Imagine with me something: say you won an exorbitant amount of money, say 10Continue reading “Under pressure”

Rather offensive

The love and mercy of our, God is beautiful and truly incredible.   With that said, in addition,  coupled with our, Lord’s love is His holiness.  God is ultimately and totally holy, as such He has wrath: righteous indignation toward transgressions, and transgressors. And rightfully so. These two characteristics of the, Godhead in total, are playedContinue reading “Rather offensive”

Let’s be rebels, you and I! Let’s throw off the restraints of society: it’s cultural and religious expectations, customs, opinions and norms. Let’s rebel!

I’m not telling you to stop vaccinating your kids, to be vegan,Continue reading “Rebel with a cause”

Reality check

It’s common to hear that we have souls. Or spirit within us. The thought is we’re physical beings having an immaterial soul. There’s a problem with this however, it’s a misunderstanding, a confusion of priority. We are eternal spirits inhabiting a material body. Why does that matter, Evan, aren’t you “cutting hairs” here? No IContinue reading “Reality check”

The Big 36

It’s my birthday today, not a particularly remarkable event given the number of human beings on our planet. But, wait, perhaps remarkable because I’m alive…in more ways than one! I started off the year with bang (too soon for suicide jokes?) My life as I knew it ended that day, I survived physically but cameContinue reading “The Big 36”

Grasp

We deny you in all we do, Lord We look to the sky without a thought of You crossing our mind The chaos surrounds deep and dark He’s abandoned us we say Natural disasters and tragedy is when we acknowledge Your life You live and You love but we’re too busy for that We deserveContinue reading “Grasp”

All about the blood

It’s all about the blood, people! wait, Evan, that’s pretty morbid. No, it is not “morbid,” it’s truth, it’s life, and heres why: First, what is bood, it’s purpose and significance? Blood is “the red liquid that circulates in the arteries and veins of humans and other vertebrate animals, carrying oxygen to and carbon dioxideContinue reading “All about the blood”
