Big Things Comin!

Okay I'm posting from my phone for the first time so overlook any typos or format mistakes please. This is just something I typed out on my notepad during a free minute. Yes it's lyrical but I don't have a tune to go with it. Anyone interested in writing a piece for it? Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Big things comin! Just around the bend
Though we can't really know the how or the when
Lookin through glasses shaded with faith
They let us look to the son and feel his warm embrace
Just takin steps now not knowin where they'll lead
I know I'll end up in his will becuase my sins I did plead
Left all my guilt and my shame on that cross
All my do goods and acheivements just so much dross
But I didn't stay there after laying my life down
See the one who leads me is on high keepin my crowns
If I'm truly gonna follow I can't just stand and stare
That tomb is now empty there ain't nobody there
Gotta pick my feet up and take it one step at a time
And the places he will lead me they're gonna be just so sublime

Big things comin just around the bend
Big things comin don't know how or when
Don't take it from me just step with the one
Put those on those shades of faith and look to the son
Big things comin just around the bend
Keep walking in his grace and the joys never end

Take it from me these big times are comin round
Don't matter where you're walkin could be your hometown
Could be a Florida beach or an Israeli coast
Doesn't really matter long as you goin with the ghost
Live it where you are make an example of your faith
Garrauntee it works for good no matter what is at stake
Youre made for big things so don't shut your dreams up
He's said he's gonna overflow not half fill your cup
So don't just sit around and be okay with what youve got
Gods promised us the world if we'll just let him make us hot
Thoughts from above or things of below
If you'll just follow him then soon you will know
That there's

Big things comin just around the bend
Big things comin don't know how or when
But don't take from me just step with the one
Put on those shades of faith and look to the son

Inspired by Charles Schuett and his search for God's will in his life. Keep stepping man! God's got huge things for you if you'll wait in faith.

Writing Creatively

Yes it has been quite a while now since I last blogged. I have been ridiculously busy with school and work as of late. Hopefully it will settle down into some kind of rythm in the near future. Various things have been inspiring my writing lately, although I have not written any of them down in public view. This is a poem that I wrote for creative writing class a couple days ago and I liked how it worked out. It was on switching point of views mid-poem. I received an A from the teacher on it but feel free to grade or comment yourself!

There he goes

Racing down the street in his car

That engines gonna blow

Just like his life, it won’t go very far

Always driving fast

His lifestyle probably matches

That wasteful lifestyle won’t last

Him and his car will end up crashes

His whole life I’ll bet

Is set at the same pace

Stupid boy doesn’t realize

It’s not speed but how you run the race

Trying to escape

From all that has gone wrong

With my foot pressing the pedal

Suddenly I feel strong

As my speed increases

All my cares just slip away

I live my life so serious

This is my one chance to play

So many struggles in my world

I’m always living right

This is my one small way

Against conformity I fight

Gone for another week

We’ll see him by the weekend

Unless that horrible acceleration

Has his motor far too weakened

His plight just won’t end well

I’m sure we’ll see him soon

Pushing that poor vehicle

Ever closer to its doom
