Morning Coffee 7/13/18 Medicated (poem)

Medicated…. That is what the system of this world wants us to be.

They want us so high and doped up that we cannot see.

We are offered pleasure to blind us from reaching our true measure.

We don’t want to face the pain but yet we want to know what riches are there to gain.

Nothing against creature comforts. But If you recline to long you will decline into a             LAY Z BOY.

Sex, drugs and Alcohol are no longer the only addictions. The biggest drug is your self.

“i love me some me.” hold up let me take this SELFie. I did my my part now what can you do for me.

This world wants to dull the pain but i promise you its not for your  eternal gain.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 3/18/18 I Am Not (Poem)

 

I….

I am not your el shaddai

I am not your God that sits on high

My name is not a strong tower

if you run in, i can’t guarantee your safety

I am not the one who walks on water

so don’t cry to me “Lord save me!”

I cannot walk out you salvation and expect to keep my own

I need time to go to the table to feed me!

Yes I know our tradition

but i have moments when i need God so let me be!

I can lead a horse to water but i cant make him drink

yes things are good but i cant always be there when things start to sink.

I am not the bruised reed that will not break.

If i bend to far i will break!

Im am doing my best to point you to the source

but i guess you will learn as life runs its course.

 

 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 5/24/17 2 Lions (Poem)

2 Lions

My mind is a battle ground.

My heart is the prize

With in me are two lions fighting for strength and size.

This battle never ends it never goes

it only ebbs and flows.

This battle is not something I choose.

The two lions do not fight with there teeth or roars.

These lions use words that when acted on can open diffrent doors

The crazy thing about this battle is i decide who wins.

These loins call for my attention and time

they seek to have all my focus

ether one can devour me like a plague of locust.

One lion screams world lust

the other shouts in God we trust.

One lion is boom the other is bust.

So here i am caught in the middle

My flesh and Gods will

I can’t treat this like its lets make a deal.

Because the choices i make will have a lasting impact

The choices i make will leave me tattered or standing intact.

2 lions, my mind is the battle ground

My heart is the prize that leads to my soul.

One lion will leave you broken but the other will make you whole.

Much Love & God Bless

What Am I Supposed To Be?!

Here I am!

Here I am, in a world with so many differences.

In a world with so many choices.

There are so many paths

If I only knew what to do!

They all can’t be true!

I am gifted at so much!

Sometimes the inspiration is too much!

I need focus!

God you created me! You breathed life into me!

You set me on this path and I’m walking it.

But sometimes I feel i never measure up to it!

Give me a focus, give me a line of sight!

I’m tired of wondering if what i am doing is right!

What am i supposed to be?

Show me what is worth fighting for

Show me what is worth shedding my blood sweat and tears.

Come into my darkness and expose my fears!

You are my identity!

I need you to identify me!

Because this world is trying to define  me!

Like aladdin you show me a whole new world!

Well give me the GPS so i can navigate it.

and become who you want me to be!

Renew my mind and show me

WHAT I AM SUPPOSED TO BE!

What Am I Supposed To Be?! by B. Sawyer 8/7/16

Morning Coffee 6/16/16 What Now? (poem)

the new mc banner

Read Psalm 23

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. – Psalm 23:2 KJV

Hello family, this poem is where i am at right now. i pray it blesses you.

What Now? You got me out here in the middle of ocean. You picked me up and dropped me in fathoms deep. You are leading me, but where to? You have me and i am stable, you say trust me. But right now i don’t feel capable.

I want to stay where it is warm and comfortable. Let me be here where i can see the path and wont stumble. No. Like a young eagle you push me out by making the nest uncomfortable. You say “i am doing something new.” i wish i could stay in the place where i know everything to do.

I digress… You are my shepherd and must follow. I just wanted to let you know how i feel. In spite of my feelings i will walk by the faith you have given me. Can’t promise you i wont doubt but it is you i cannot go without. You are my shepherd and i will follow

Much Love & God Bless

I Choose by Brandon Sawyer

I am held to a standard. I am something different!

You haven’t, nor will you ever meet anyone like me!

I am not what this world wants me to be or even what you want me to be.

 

This world did not make me! Social media did not create me!

I was created and then then the mold was broken.

I am not the next this or the next that! I am the next only me!

 

Don’t compare me to the ones that have gone before!

I cannot be cloned! Nor was i ment to be.

I got one life and I’m leaving it all on the floor.

 

I choose to stay grounded in my creator.

Without him I am nothing.

If you like me its cool, If you don’t its still cool

just go sit with the other haters.

 

I choose to be and will always be unapologetically me!

How? by Brandon Sawyer

How can comprehend you?

How can you accept me?

On my best day, I still can’t measure up!
You love me!

My actions don’t always show that I love you.

How can this be?
You reach beyond common sense 

Your hand reaches throug every barrier 

From you my heart has no defense.
You defy human logic

If I tried to figure you out I would grow sick.

So I will just accept who you are.
It is not for me to know how

But for me to listen and receive 

I will not ask how but step back

And say wow!
How? by B. Sawyer 6/3/16

Only Silence

When words cannot be uttered.
Where body language cannot express
When we are left with our mind blown to pieces
 
There is only silence.
 
When it is out of our logical grasp.
When how and why are left unanswered.
When we don’t see how it came to be.
 
There is only silence and it is golden.
 
Because in our silence we are forced to be hushed
It makes us see that someone else is in control of the paintbrush.
So now we see our true status, our true position.
 
Passengers! Passengers that cannot handle the chaos of the ride!
So we must yield the wheel to the ONE more qualified, the ONE with the CDL.
 
We can’t handle it so we in hushed amazement look to the One who will drive us through what my seem like a living hell. The fires are apart of the hardening process leaving us finished with a flawless glaze.
 
So now there is only silence as we look back in hushed amazement wondering how HE got us through.
 
From my mouth there is only silence.
 
B. Sawyer – Only Silence 5/25/16

Love (Poem)

Love……

Love moves to shelter another even if it is the one out in the rain.

Love looks beyond just enough and goes the extra mile.

Love is quick to hold back wrath and even quicker to lend a merciful hand.

Love brings correction to guide us back to life.

Love still calls us, even when we have pushed away.

Love see’s every flaw in you but is willing to correct them.

Love asked for the cup to be passed from Him but still carried out His Fathers will.

Love was thinking of you and me as roman nails were pounded into His hands and feet.

Love bridged the gap between man and God.

Two thousand years ago Loves blood was poured out for You!

Much Love & God Bless

The Numbers (Poem)

Do I have to have a three thousand seat auditorium?

Do I need a grand stage with all the trappings?

Do I need a three piece suit and a degree to boot?

NO!

Do I need to shutdown twitter and Facebook to make an impact?

Do I need the most followers and likes?

Do I need the numbers?

NO!

What I need is to know that the pouring out of my God given gifts is not in vein!

I need to know that the words that God gives me will reach a soul and touch it!

I can have all the numbers but no fruit comes from the numbers then its all in vein!

If only one of you is touched by the words God gives me, the mission He gave me is a success!

I don’t need the numbers. I need “well done Good and faithful servant”

Much Love & God Bless

B. Sawyer
