There is a lump in my stomach.
A lump so big that it foams
This lump cages my body up
Suffocating the little freedom that is left

Lord I just wish to be covered in your love
Your soothing voice untying this knot
Cut me open oh Lord and remove the lump from within me
Kill my pain with your blood
As you have done before
Whisper sweet blessings in my ear
As you have done before
Speak to my heart
As you have done before
And cover me with your wings
As you do always

Remove this lump from me so that I can be pure and holy as you are.

So I don't normally write my poetry on here but today was an exception... There are some things going on right now - Mainly in college that I just want to get away from. The people, the work, heck even the building itself. I don't know if you can relate to this poem but I just had to cry out to God to release me from this pain, to just pull me through these times. The times where faith is mocked, where the blood shedding of Christ is despised, where adultery is glorified and God is a myth. These are the times when we (Christians) need to come together.For the first time in my life, I realize that this isn't a game, nor is it a joke. This is reality. So where ever you are, realize that people might mock you for your strength in Christ, or will be against you. But know that "If God is for us, who can be against us?" [Romans 8:31]

Plus you must be doing something right when going through hardships "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus". 
[1 Thessalonians 5:16-18]

I yearn to be close to Christ, I want to be clothed in him, wrapped in His love, there is no word to describe me wanting to fulfill His wishes. Though this is not a routin but a mere lifestyle - I still want there to be more time dedicated to not only reading His word  but meditating on it and absorbing it so it can flourish for others to see the Christ in me.

There simply aren't any other words to explain other than I love Jesus - I can't really put it any other way. My vocab just doesn't reach that level. Trying to define His love would be an insult and quite frankly stupid.
In my opinion of course :)
