day dreaming...

the more time I spend in Detroit & the more people I connect with & meet the more my mind starts to drift & dream.

Thus causes me to blast Dreamers by Daniel Bashta in my ears, while gazing out the window at Thistle Coffee Shop on a gloomy fall afternoon.. {not doing homework...}

dreaming of...
...a broken city coming up from the ashes, into the Light. amongst a community of people who have heaps of hope for a city that most of the world fears & have given up on.
...seeing God sweeping up the broken people who have lost the sight of hope for themselves & their city.
...everything we (as humans) deem impossible.. even though nothing is impossible for our God.

{picture: clf}

they'll rebuild the old ruins,
raise a new city out of the wreckage.
they'll start over on the ruined cities,
take the rubble left behind
and make it new.

the heart..


the presence of the living God overtaking my whole heart. holding it really, really, REALLY close, and not letting go of it, even for a second.

despite all the hurt, pain, heartache, heartbreak, wounds, tears, anger, the unknown, and the other million negative, worrisome emotions, feelings, & things that cause my heart to be heavy, dark, & a dangerous or scary part of myself to open... still coming really close to me, to take the heaviness & pain of this world away. to take the burdens off of my {really} fragile heart. to give me rest. peace. happiness. joy. love. even in the midst of valleys & storms.

{Therefore you, do not lose heart. Though outwardly you wasting away, yet inwardly you are being renewed day by day. For your light and momentary troubles are achieving for you, an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.}

HE overcame.
