A Writer's Journey of a Secluded Mind

It is not through good works one will be saved. Not through obeying the law and persecuting others. Is this not judgement in itself? Are we to judge knowing in our hearts that we have sinned? But what sin is not pardoned if we follow the greatest  commandment: to love. For in true love there is no judgement. 

And the only work required:

“The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” (NIV John 6:29)

How then can we spew hate and persecute those “different” than us.  Do not quote scripture at me when you yourself have left your children to fend for themselves. 

I can only apologize that I have not a way to help. The snares in my own life are far more than I can handle. I can only preach love, though I cannot feel it. My own child is with his father, not because of man, because of courts and judgement: but in a moment of clear lucidity I knew his father had a far greater capacity to love than myself. There he is safe from this self-destuctive spiral I find myself on. This merry-go-round has room for but one passenger and I would wish it on noone. 

Be careful how you raise your children so that sins of the father do not reap what you have sown. In man’s quest for excellence we have so poluted the world that what was once cured by faith may no longer be. I am how I am for a reason, though I know not what it is. It is through faith that I put one step in front of the other. Yes look both ways, but move forward. 



For man will read something, and based on his beliefs and experience interpret it one way. 

A man full of love will see hope and redemption. 

A man scorned, bitter and angry will seejustification for his lashing out. 

How much of the languages have been interpreted through a lover’s rejection?

You can. You can do anything under your own steam. On your own. But eventually you will wear out. You will lose your way. You tire. 


You can ask God (your religious figurehead) for the Holy Spirit (spiritual guidance) [you have to get what I mean here. It’s easier for me to go forward referencing my God. But this is true, two make a task easier than one.] and be moving everyday in His direction under His infinite steam. With Him you can go forward, have the energy, be a beacon. Doesn’t mean the task ahead of you is easy. He never said it would be. In fact I am  sure it us said many times it won’t be. But with Him you will have the strength. Which is greater? Man or the Supernatural?

If you tire you are at crossways with Him because nothing done in true love is tiring.  In true love, the Father’s love, Abba’s love, there is no end of the strength and flow of the love pouring out. Filling you. Reviving you. 

The eternal spring is that, eternal. 

In our hunt for rigteousness we forget what is good. “‘ I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Matt. 9:13) We forget what it means to survive, not live. We seek glory and riches at the expense of others. The saddest part? We glorify the evil, the things of this world. Our media is full of lies and contempt. We are Shocked when something is shown in a good light. As a whole those who are ‘good’ are ridiculed and made less. It appears we have forgotten to hope. 

Mercy, not condemnation. Love not pity. Hope. 


I forgot all about yesterday. It was rough. Everytime I get a little foundation built, my world goes poof. Then, well I am waiting for this love everyone talks about. Freedom from oppression. I fully believe   when someone comes at you with the expression I do this out of love it is not that. It is my association that those words mean pain for me. I hope I pray for an understanding. 
I wonder what Frank is up to. I think the last I left them was huddled on the floor in a safe spot. 

My wish for all of us is that safe spot. May you find yours as I search for mine.
