    My feet are hardened from the
    path I walk; journey’s long and
    harsh yet I traverse;

    i am faithful...

    I continue through the wilderness
    following the fire in the sky, that
    light from afar, the star that led a
    triune of wisdom to a new born carpenter.

    A carpenter of old who takes wood (humanity)
    and forms it into a new creation.

    my journey keeps me thinking...

    How ironic, a man so great, born in
    a manger [wooden] died on a cross
    [wooden] is the only one to see he
    left this world the same way he came?

    I am astounded...

    I think about a man brave enough to stretch
    his arms wide, blood dripping from his wounds,
    suffering for me yet, everyday, the words
    I say, the things I do, the places I go
    could reopen those wounds healed by grace;

    I am ashamed..

    I cringe when I see Christian laden
    carnality stepping its way into my
    life judging me with the same wood
    they used to judge others?

    My peers have been blinded by their own
    splintered covered veil as they beat me
    with words till I bleed from within.

    I fight back...

    i refuse to be their victim so when
    I grab their plank I find my wounds
    healed; the blood that drips from this
    stick of judgment is 2000 years old;

    i endure...

    My persecution is constant, but I
    fear not for my Spirit is reclaimed
    and my soul is restored;

    Now I see that I no longer walk where I
    want and do what I choose for I am led
    as one in the herd constantly looking up
    to be comforted by the sight of the shepherd.

    I thank God for the sacrifice

    no doubt bishop. GOD is really dwelling in this place today...

    so many seek for GOD to visit never to experience a visitation...there is a difference...

    we are in the midst of a visitation...
