Tides of Curved Lips

Smiles split empty spaces
Spread through crowded places
Creating scenes seemingly fulfilling
And yet void

Smiles of unexplained origins bring about uncertainty
For as they flit from face to face they may seem out of pace
And place on the side confusion

As though common place emotions are forgotten
And monotonous existences are never foregone
Even as such a youthful world
Burns through its young years at unrecorded speeds
And reminiscence is but faded history

Smiling faces become dust in the wind
Never sticking around for long
But always returning with patient times

Titles Belongs To Those Who Act Upon beliefs

Where is the world we seek to save?
How must we go about saving it?
I tell you now it is within our very grasp
but we cannot feel that which we struggle to separate ourselves from.
For we are among this struggling world.
forgetting about ourselves amidst all that struggles to save others

and even now as some save others rather than themselves
many more retire to the shackles the broke
keeping a title yet to be earned through saving those who had once stood chained beside them

In Gods Grace we live, laze, and die.
only to be asked by God on high
what make us believe we have earned our place?
how can you claim to be Gods children when you did nothing but ignore the commands of God?

I say to you now Gods word is only understood by those willing to act upon it
so do not claim that God is in your heart when you do not follow his commands
rather repent for your arrogance and plead for his grace again
because you cannot fight a devil alone when he has already won the war.

salvation is free to those who seek it
but those who seek salvation must spread what it has to offer
and should consider salvation only when they are ready to help save others.

so those who hold titles in loose grips
be aware that those titles mean nothing
unless you are ready to spread that title to the next chained slave.

Two Really Good Friends

These are two really good friends of mine, Josh Doneff is the picture on top and Matt Akin is the picture on the bottom.

If I had to use one verse that would describe their individual mindsets best those verses would be.

Hebrews 10:24- And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
is for Josh Doneff

Colossians 3:15- Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as member of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
is for Matt Akin
