God is There

Do you ever wonder if God is there or not? Do you wonder if He hears the cries of His suffering people? Do God hear when the sick and needy call to Him in prayer? I sometimes wonder whether God cares about my burdens. But in spite of my problems, I know that God is there!

When I was in a cold lonely jail cell I began wondering weather or not God cared about me.  "God is You There" was my constant prayer. "If You are there than please say something or reveal Yourself so I won't feel like I'm by myself".
This is a short poem called "God was There". He was there during my hardships and frustrations. He was there to give me the strength to contiue forward. At my lowest point God was there to provide hope and inspiration!

I wrote this poem to encourage anyone who may be going through a difficult time in their life. It's for anyone wondering why has God forsaken them. This short poem about my life is meant to let you know that God is there when it appears He isn't! God was there to comfort me and help me get through my darkest hour! 
I pray this poem can provide a little comfort and answer the mystery about God being there.

God was There

O Lord, sometimes I wanna break down and shed a tear,
when I think about all my trials I endured this year.
My anguish causes me not to sleep,
though I'm suffering I try not to weep.
I asked You repeatedly to send a little help,
I asked You to guide my every step.
I thought today would be a better day when it got started,
but I’m still lonely, depressed, and brokenhearted.
I’m so discouraged until I don’t know what to do,
I've been hoping and praying to at least
get an encouraging word from You...
                 “Behold, I was there when you was worried, 
                                     lonely, and depressed,
and  I was also there when you was unable to rest. 
I was there when things appeared to be at their worst,
 all you have to do is keep Me first.
 During the times you were in despair and needed help, 
I was there to guide your every step. 
Yes, I stood right by your side, even when you doubted-- 
My love never died. Are not all My words all true?  
Was I not there to strengthen and comfort you? 
Wherefore, look back and pay closer attention,
 I bear witness I was there through your all affliction”

Isaiah 26:3-9, Proverbs 8: 23-30, Isaiah 61:1-2

                 Inspirational and Spiritual Poetry

We all need inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes just a kind word can be a blessing and it can help us get  through our darkness hour!! During those struggling times, I try to find some inspiring words to share and comfort. A good encouraging word can turn someones life around.

"He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted and proclaim LIBERTY to the captives."
Isaiah 61:1

                                  My Testimony 

I was born and raised in Detroit MI. I grew up in an unstable home. My father physically and mentally abused my mother. His abusiveness had an adverse effect on me as well as my siblings. It caused homelessness and a lot of mental anguish. It also caused a great deal of hardship and grief.

As a result, I did not attend school regularly. I developed a leaning disability. I did not like going to school. I could not read and comprehend like other kids in elementary. I struggled though middle school and eventually dropped out in the 9th grade.

 I did not get involved in any criminal activity during this time, but I wasn’t doing anything constructive with my life either. I was not interested in sports or anything else that would make my life better.

 I began smoking marijuana at around sixteen years old. I tried alcohol, but didn’t like the taste or the feeling of being drunk. So I stuck with smoking weed until I meet crack in 1984.

 My life quickly grew out of control. I lied, cheated, and stole to support my crack habit. My only purpose in life was to get high. I lost friends and family members trust and respect. Getting high was all that mattered to me.

 At twenty-seven, I committed my first felony that lead me to prison. It was one of the worse experience s of my life. I was completely lost and did not know or understand just how serious things were.

 As result of my insanity, I went to prison several more times. My last visit was indeed the lowliest and darkest periods in my life. I lost all hope about myself. Despair became my best friend as I sit in the cold jail cell. I thought of ways to end my life because I did not want to go through the pain and suffering anymore. But at my lowest moment, something happened. The Lord came and touched my heart and gave me a reason to continue on.

Today, I use my experience to help inspire and uplift others. I want my poems to glory God and give encouragement and inspiration to the "Brokenhearted"
