A Midnight Poem

Here's a midnight poem from my heart to yours, 
May you discover your open doors, 
May your love run deep, 
May you have treasured friends to keep, 
May you have someone to catch your tears, 
May you conquer your fears, 
May God stand as your guide, 
Always by your side, 
May even when you have it tough, 
You know God's love is enough,
For your life I pray,
May God watch over you day by day,
May on your darkest night,
God be your light,
I want you to know,
That wherever you go,
God's created this life in which you star,
And God's never far.

Human Beings

We are people. Yes this is the start of a very intelligent blog post. I really aced that one. We are not aliens, we are human. H-u-m-a-n. It's not an excuse being human it's a fact. We fall under the same category as human beings.

What does it mean to be human? Maybe you can tell me. In an ever changing world with all kinds of people there is a way we as people would describe being human. Human beings are kind to one another. I am sure if other species could study us that's not the definition they will find.

Especially when human beings + social media mainly shows the hurt people feel from others. Whether it's from a break up, friends or colleagues or even strangers. Everybody hurts.

What we all have in common is that we all have feelings and feelings are what drives us. However feelings are not what drives God. God loves people who hate him.

I am not such a fan of social media at the moment because of the way people are written about. Not to say I haven't written things when I have been hurt too, I am not saying I am any better.

It reminds me how different we are compared to what God wants us to be. Mark 12: 30 - 31 says "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: 'Love your neighbour as yourself'. There is no commandment greater than these."

It said love your neighbour. It never said except when they... It said love. We are asked to love. February isn't the month of love but all our lives is a time to love.

Human being - it doesn't matter how they are treated they love anyway. (A definition I would have liked to see).

Your heart can get crushed when you open your heart to others, it can can hurt but God heals all wounds and keeps you strong to keep loving. He gave us the ability to love.

It doesn't matter what people do to us; what matters is what we do to them.

A good verse on this and part of my favourite bible verse is: Matthew 5: 38-48.

Love to all,
Until I write again,
