Busyness . . . .Oy.: Part 2

Hi everyone,

I apologize for not posting an entry last night as I promised I would. I have been really busy over the past couple of days and I hope you can forgive my slip-up. I also promise to post more consistently, starting again tomorrow. Thank God, the semester is almost over and I think I can relax a bit even though I still have much to do before the 17th! God Bless all of you, pray for me regarding the end of the semester and the needs of my loved ones (family, friends, even acquaintances), and I will also be praying for you however you ask me to do so, whether for specific requests or life in general.

God Bless, as always,

Michelle

A Bit of Writing: Part 7: Spoken Word Poetry: Frustration and Reflection

Hi everyone,

As I promised, I am back to writing. This poem will be a bit darker but end on an optimistic note, like usual, as a long day and perhaps getting sick inspired it. After all, an irregular sleep schedule since Thanksgiving and slight dehydration today can be enough to make the average human being, like me, sick. I hope it was just a fluke, which I think it was. That said:

Frustration and Reflection

Sometimes I think I can’t take anymore

That my life’s going nowhere or I’m not sure/

What God has for me, though I know it’s something.

After all, having no purpose would be no reason for living./

Thankfully, I needn’t worry nor despair

For I know my God is everywhere./

And nothing I do or say will ever be in vain

For there is a time and a purpose for everything. /

That said, I am thankful to have this gift of life/

To know my Lord and my God, by the grace of Jesus Christ

My Lord, my master, I will serve You until my dying day/

Then again when I see Thy face in eternity.

There it is. I may add to it later, but I doubt it. Clean, civil, constructive, and other such comments are welcome, of course. God Bless!

As always,

Michelle

A Bit of Writing: Part 6: Something in French (Un Peu d’Écriture en français)

The image is from http://www.bestclipartblog.com/clipart-pics/poetry/clip-art-2.jpg. I felt like that, while the art was meant to represent the act of writing poetry, it can represent any kind of writing, really, if taken alone!

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re having a blessed weekend so far! In case you didn’t already know, my native language is English of the Standard American dialect, but I am also fluent in French of the Standard Parisian dialect and know some French of the Quebecer dialect as well. That said, I thought I’d share something I wrote in French the day before Thanksgiving:

La vie instable, c’est une leçon pour moi

‘A faire la confiance en Dieu pour ma vie et mon âme/

Il me connait le mieux, je suis qu’Il est Dieu……

(This unstable life is a lesson for me

To trust in God for my life and my soul

He knows me best, I know He is God….)

It is a work in progress, but I will try to write more in the coming week and update the poem as I am able. Out of curiosity, as well, do you any of you dabble in creative writing? If so, do you write poetry, song lyrics, music, novels, short stories, serials, et cetera? Let me know. I’d be interested in reading more about you as well as sharing my heart with you and allowing my life to be an expression of the living God. Praise Him, I get to do that because He died on the cross for me and rose again, atoning for my sins in my place and rising again to show He is Who He says He is!!!

That said, I welcome any and all comments as long as they are clean, civil, and constructive. Thanks!

God Bless,

Michelle

A Bit of Writing: Intermission: Brokenness and Love That Heals

I can guarantee in no uncertain terms this is what life is for and meant to be for: God. Healing. Love. Redemption. I am proud to call Mosaic Christian Church my home church and thank my God every moment I realize how blessed I am!!

If you take nothing else from this excerpt of what the sermon at Mosaic was, know this: we are all broken and helpless to save and heal ourselves. Thank God, He is our Lord and Father, ever willing, ready and able to forgive. 2 Peter 3:9

By the way, in case you are interested in the full sermon:

It is 40 minutes long, including the excerpt of the video I just featured. I promise every minute is worth watching. God is working at Mosaic and everywhere else in the world. Don’t let the opportunity to find Him and/or grow closer to Him pass you by, now or ever. Living for Him is worth every moment of your time here on Earth and someday in Heaven if you have found Him. Matthew 11:28-30, John 3, John 17-21….I could go on, but this is it for now, to be concise. That said, I am also praying however you need it. Be blessed!

God Bless,

Michelle

Giving It All Away, or Rather, Giving 100% of What I Am and Have to Jesus

http://birdieinacoffeecup.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/yeah-ninety-nine-percent-of-you-is-an-incredible-liar/

I don’t have much to say tonight, but I want y’all to read this given the chance, reflect, and then go dedicate (or if you are already saved, rededicate) your life to Christ and live for Him as He has permitted you to do: shamelessly, freely, joyfully. Living your life for Christ won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. It is worth it; I promise.

God Bless,

Michelle
