This piece was written by Feyi Sodipo (follow her on twitter @feefey). I love it because its written so simply, honestly and beautifully and I can identify with it.
I just had to share this so enjoy!
They don’t understand, yet I must stand.
I’m all alone but I need space. Is it in my mind or is it my mind?
I must be free but they push and prod. They don’t believe me...how should I believe?
I must retrace the steps and enter into my psyche, then I can help me and He could fix me.
But I being weak think I am strong. The admittance of frailty I mistake for strength, being broken, presuming whole.
I fake it and feign it, I am invincible and tough and smart and I hate it.
I need Him. He loves me but my folly has me in shackles. Beautiful shackles, they adorn me I say.
Now I turn violent, the chains are tightening. I’m on the edge.
I am tall and strong and...Empty.
He stays calling, reaching out. Unconditional love.
He frees me and holds me and loves me. And I hurt Him and push Him
I weaken and fall. Yet He holds on, drawing me close and helping me up.
I feel the love, it heals me. I need no analgesic, His love is my drug.
I am His, He is mine.
My saviour, my lover, my Jesus.

The past few weeks I've been learning alot about faith. Belief is soo important. People talk about the power of believing in yourself and how much we can achieve by doing that. So, imagine how much more power there is in believing in God and His word. The Bible seed says faith as small as a mustard seed can move a mountain. People were healed by Jesus according to the level of their faith. My prayer is God helps us all to tap into the power of faith in every area of our lives. Amen

I saw this once on someones facebook note and after reading, I literally brought out my pen and paper and wrote it all down..for me. But now I'm gonna write it out again for you:
Every woman has an insatiable need for relationship, one that can never be filled. It is an ache in her soul designed to drive her to God. She aches for intimacy, to be known, loved and chosen. It also explains her deepest fear- abandonment/rejection.
You have to have someplace to turn... For comfort, understanding. For the healing of brokeness. For love. To offer life, you must have life. And you can only get this from God.
We live in a great love story, set in the midst of war. The great and terrible clash between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness continues. They are fighting for the human heart.
Jesus is the hero of this love story and we are his beloved. So the greatest gift you can give yourself is to develop a real relationship with Jesus Christ, where you are finding in God the life and love your soul desperately needs.
