It’s coming.

It’s time to face reality.

Stop looking back. What’s there but pain and regret? You may find happiness but that happiness is gone, and honestly, it may not ever be coming back.

Look ahead. You have no idea of the wonders God has for you. Just keep looking towards Him.

And don’t be like me. Don’t try to conjure up a wonderful new fantasy of your life ahead. Just stop. Wait and see.

Don’t look back. Don’t create an imaginary future that may not even come true.

Espera.

Coming Home

This must just be a thing now.

Whenever I come home, I learn something new about myself. Something that needs to be stripped away and that I need to get rid of.

I catch myself always saying that “I don’t like guys.” Literally, it’s said all the time and I never knew out why. Until the LORD brought it to my realization. Praise God because that one really made no sense. So…

…I realized tonight on my ride home (you know when you’re driving home late at night and you just start thinking about life?)┬áthat it is not that I dislike “guys.” It’s that I’m afraid. When it came to teenagers (when I was one) and young men, saying, “No” became a constant thing that either didn’t matter or rarely changed anything. And when I said, “Yes,” I soon realized that it was all for nothing and found myself left even more broken than before.

So I’m afraid. I’m afraid of what a man can do to me physically and emotionally. It’s not like every man in the world has done something to me, but it’d be nice to meet someone who can show that not every man in the world will hurt you.

Tomorrow

Jesus said, “Here I stand
Won’t you please let me in?”
And you said, “I will
Tomorrow”

Jesus said, “I am he
Who supplies all your needs”
And you said, “I know,
But tomorrow”

Tomorrow
I’ll give my life
Tomorrow
I thought about today
Oh, but it’s so much easier to say

Tomorrow
Who promised you
Tomorrow?
Better choose the LORD today
For “tomorrow” very well might be today

Jesus said, “Here I stand
Won’t you please take my hand?”
And you said, “I will
Tomorrow”

Jesus said, “I am he
Who supplies all your needs”
And you said, “I know,
But tomorrow”

Tomorrow
I’ll give my life
Tomorrow
I thought about today
Oh, but it’s so much easier to say

Tomorrow
Who promised you
Tomorrow?
Better choose the LORD today
For “tomorrow” very well might be today

And who said your tomorrow would ever come for you?
Still you laugh and play and continue on to say

Tomorrow
Forget about
Tomorrow
Won’t you give your life today?
Oh, please
Don’t just turn and walk away

Tomorrow
Tomorrow is not promised
Don’t let this moment slip away
Your “tomorrow” could very well be today
