Love is Stronger than Hate


Hate is powerful and it destroys all it touches, causes great devastation in its wake. Hate fuels a mind to do awful things and sometimes it seems like there isn’t a weapon strong enough to stand up against it, so we lose hope.

Yet there is something that is more powerful that can be wielded against it, something that can triumph. Love is a force that can overcome hate’s strongest arsenal, against its every attack. Love is what hate fears most. If we, one person at a time, seek within ourselves that strength, we can stand up to hate.

It’s natural when provoked to get defensive, lash out with harsh words and hurtful actions. That’s what hate is counting on, for us to let anger, jealousy, greed, spiteful behavior, and the temptation to succumb to the dark parts within us to win.

It takes true strength to resist the dark sides within us, to find the good and let it prevail. When we know love, both how to give and receive it, it’s easier to listen to the goodness we have in our hearts. Sometimes it’s hard when we’ve been hurt to trust in love’s existence and in its power to heal. It’s easier sometimes to build walls and keep it out, to try to prevent it from hurting us again. What we don’t always see is that it’s not love that hurts us, it’s the absence of it that does.

It took me awhile to see just how strong and wonderful love really is, but now I know its power and refuse to turn from it ever again.

I’m grateful for love. I’m blessed with knowing many forms of it. I have God’s love with me everywhere I go, a love that overcomes everything. I have the love of two wonderful kids, a love that lights up the darkest days and shows me what it’s like to love another without reservation, a love that will last as long as I live. I have the love of an amazing husband, the kind of love one reads about, but isn’t sure really exists. He’s my best friend and partner. I have the love of family, a bond both bound by blood and something more special. I have the love of incredible friends, a love not bound by blood, but something just as strong. What’s even greater still is that I have the love to give back, love that inspires and fuels me daily. To be able to give and receive love is the biggest blessing I have been given.

Let love fuel you, heal your wounded heart, help you let go of anger, and inspire you to show it to others, so it may help them as well. Show a little love today!


Love Is


Love isn’t perfect. for those who feel it aren’t

It’s only as strong as we allow it to be

It can be blind, fall into an ignorant state of bliss

But it can also heal wounds that time alone can’t


Love will see difficult days and darker nights

There will be disagreements, struggles, and pain

It will take individuals committed to get through

Its success or failure rides upon our efforts


Love won’t stop the hurdles from coming

But it can help us jump over them, if we allow it to

If we but see the strength within it, within us

It will become as limitless as we allow it to be

No Shame in Walking Away


When you see someone you love in need

Often times the first instinct is to help out

You want to erase all pain, sorrow, & doubt

To see their minds at ease & hearts freed


Sometimes, things work out for those we love

Our efforts are successful & they’re grateful

Other times, things go awry and instead they’re hateful

Or we’re simply taken for granted & we cry to heaven above


Why is that sometimes those who are supposed to be closest to us

Are the ones that cause us the most heartache & pain

It should be easy to walk away from those only interested in what they can gain

But when there’s bonds that tie, it’s often not easy to leave without a fuss


Sometimes we never find the strength to walk away

For we’re family, family sticks together always, right?

Other times though, we rid the toxic from our sight

And we see there’s no shame in not wanting to stay


We ought to look out for one another, especially our family

But there’s nothing wrong with not tolerating abuse

Sometimes we find after trying to help for so long, what’s the use?

One can only try for so long before they need to set themselves free.

You Are My Strength


Beaten down once again for my mental crimes

I lie on the ground shaking, in tears

This has happened to me one too many times

Being brought low by my own insecurities, doubts, & fears


I have been my worst enemy for years

Allowing my own mind to wage battles against me

I do more to harm myself than any of my peers

It is time to stand up right now & from the evil within be free


To know my own worth is key

Being able to hold my head up high

Lord, in me You made someone of great beauty

For all you make is wondrous, that I can not deny


The road ahead will have many twists & turns

And I will surely stumble & fall flat on my face

But because within me Your strength brightly burns

I won’t be kept down long, for I am saved by Your amazing grace

The Power Within You


The sun has set
But it’s not time for bed yet
The rain is still falling
And I hear the night calling

I think of the sun
Where it is now, are people having fun?
While many here prepare to go to bed
Elsewhere upon daylight’s beam do people tread

Across the globe, we’re all in different stages
Some sleep, some play, some earn their wages
Here it rains, in other places it snows
And yet in other places the sun glows

I like to contemplate what it’s like far away
Wondering what others do, what they say
Do they ever daydream about life over here?
If somehow offered a look, would they peer?

If I was offered the chance
I think I’d take a glance
So that I might know how others live
Oh if only that chance were possible to give

I snap out of my reverie
Beautiful and bright, it’s the stars I see
Singing a song of joy foretold
For those brave enough, those who are bold

Soon it will be time to dream
We will carry you through slumber’s stream
See your future bright
Once you lay your head down and turn out the light

After awhile, the night will fade and you will waken
But do not from your dreams be shaken
Know your path and make the dreams come true
After all the power to make them real lies within you.

A Fragile Soul


A fragile soul struggles
Giving all it has to survive
To not be torn apart
As hate spreads across the globe
It prays to never lose its ability to love

Such suffering is seen everywhere it looks
Rape, greed, murder, war, violence, pain, death
So many people knock others down
Having no regard for other’s feelings
Meeting their own needs is all that matters

How can one not be skeptical
Not become jaded and hide their heart away?
It’s a struggle every single day
Listening to the news
Hearing about more and more tragedies

But the soul still pursues the light
Pulling back the curtains of despair
It sees healing, helping, joy, hope, compassion, love
There are many people who care for others
Who seek peace, who practice what they preach

As the soul has aged
It’s found it’s not as fragile as it once thought
Through the darkness, it’s found light
Found its strength through weakness
And despite the hate it sees, its also known friendship and love

My Plea


Up, down, and all around
I’ve been looking all day
But my sanity is no where to be found
There’s so much I have to say
But the words won’t come, to my dismay

So isolated, feeling cut off from those I love
Frustrated and just at my wits end
Crying, I look to the Lord above
To my angry heart, please attend
Peace and tranquility, do send

It’s become so difficult to undertake the task
I know I’m the only one who is here for her each day
But all that’s now required is becoming too much to ask
Please Lord, help me before I lose my way
Renew my strength, give me the patience somehow I pray

The anger builds and sometimes I yell
The waves crash hard and throw me into the harsh sea
I know it’s not her fault, that much I can tell
But sometimes it’s just too much for only me
Take away the bitterness, please set me free

Wrap me up in your love, hear my plea
Remind me I’m not going through this alone
Show me who I am meant to be
And surround me with the friends I’ve known
The ones who have stood be me as I’ve grown

Together we’ve stood through many dark days
Weathering every storm, finding ways to dance in the rain
Then laughing when the sun comes out and basking in its warm rays
Thanking You I do for bringing us together and healing every pain
In the end, You helped me overcome every hurt, heartache, and strain

So again I ask You
Help me get through this, I feel so weak
I need love that’s true
Here I stand, humble and meek
Give me the strength, wisdom, and love that I seek
