I want, I need You

Am I not
If You said I am
Then why has my mind
Played with my thoughts
Causing me to doubt...
Causing me to ignore...
Causing me to lose out...
On You... yes, You, Yahweh...
Allow me to decompress
And regain my strength
As I want to climb
This mountain with Your hands
With Your arms
With Your back bone
With Your thighs
With Your legs
With Your feet
With Your mindset
And Your heart...
Never letting go...
Never losing focus...
And if I faulter...
Let me regroup
Within the Most Holy Trinity
As our Blessed Mother embraces me
And release me to continue.

Making Sense

Towards the within
Is where it all begins
Birthed from within
Our Mother's body
Month after month
Growing and growing
Nurtured and nurtured
From within
Nothing compares
To such protection and love
Ask our Blessed Savior Yeshua
While He too grew
Within our Blessed Mother Mary...
Towards the within
Is where we have all
All that it takes
Because God, our Father
Created all that is good...
That is why now,
Now that we have been birthed,
Walk and run, think and talk...
We must continue to nurture
That which is within
By staying connected to the Maker
Of it all... God.
Look around and see...
Our society, our city, our state, our world...
Loss of connectivity to Him
And the end times grows thicker at our feet...
So many turn their backs on God,
Losing that nurturing miracle from within
And falling for anything
That the devil throws at us in general.
We can read it in His Word
We can see it in the Word
That became flesh...
Toward the within,
We have all from the beginning,
But right after the beginning,
Came the disease of our soul called Sin.
Within us are the cries for healing,
Within us are the cries for deliverance,
Within us are the cries for forgiveness,
Within us are the cries for love,
Within us are the cries for acceptance,
Within us are the cries for a new beginning...
All because of this disease called sin.
Close your eyes... See God within
And let your true life begin.
Yeshua came, He saw, and He conquered...
Don't fall for the devils lies and tricks
Your worth is more than you know,
Your worth is within.

God is Forever

The lies within the mind
Will ruin all in time
What love is this
That seeth not whom
Truly is upon the rise
What's best is best
And time will tell
No doubt will ever
Flourish well;
For if He is on top...
Then be it so...
For if He wasn't
Then the story goes
As it unravels now.
Hold on to never?
Hold on to forever.
He is forever!
The world is a never!

Mark David Grijalva Peres

A Prayer for Redemption

Like the winds that blew
Knocking down
That which seemed to be built tough...
So did this day,
It blew so much away,
From what was meant to be?
But it turns out,
It was not what words constructed...
I am at the end of my means
And I ask You...
God, my Father, please...
Lift me away
from this pain and shame
That I have no one else to blame for
But me...
The laughter of madness
Churns the thoughts
That come thereafter...
Human disaster...
Lord make me good enough
To walk Your path
And away from the evil
Which lurks within me.
Only you are the good
That is within me...
Left alone,
I am but filthy rags...
Forgive me
And allow Your loving grace
To restore me.

It's Yours For The Taking...

Why fight the love
That created you?
Why move the opposite direction
You were created for to walk upon?
Why listen to the lies
When He gave you truth?
There are things worth fighting against
And there are things worth giving up
and there are things worth giving into...
Choose your battles
Choose your destiny
For it has already been written;
It is up to you
To allow the enemy
In distraughting the true meaning
Of God's truth in your life...
No one can tell Yahweh what to do
But align their thoughts...
Align their emotions...
And fulfill His love in you
Through living His words,
Asking in prayer
And accepting His gifts of the sacraments
His gifts of the Holy Spirit
His everlasting unconditional love...
What will you do?
What will you choose?
There is only life
When choosing Him.

God bless us all

Grace Your Life With Divine Purpose

We look but do we see
That which we are to see
For the battles have been won
And we walk amongst the ashes
Fighting ghosts from a past
That we have no business living in
Swords have slaughtered
Bullets have shattered
And you stand there
Swinging your fists
To the very sight of your own shadow
What was lost in the wars
Will no longer rise
Or live again on this plain field
We can look back and admire
The heroes that rose
And those that took the fall
But never dwell, just learn
Our minds do tend to dwell
But that will just cause hell
Here on earth…
Bury the past
It did not last
And birth your thoughts
To the new breeze of today
And prepare it for tomorrow
Never again living in sorrow
Look at what we were meant to see
And never again look
Into the dark shadows
For lies do lie upon the land
It is your choice to take them by the hand
Grace your life with divine purpose
And drop the can of slow death
Fill your heart with joy
And let all the distress go
Today we are here
Yet not promised tomorrow
So learn from yesterday
And grow today
To live a better tomorrow.

Mark David Grijalva Peres

Been There, Now I Am Here

I have seen
I have lived
And been...
But now I am
And must truly live
The way I was meant to
For alone I felt
But never was
He was always there,
I rejected His light.
But now I see
With my eyes closed
His hands that led me
To the place I am
And have the faith
I will reach
His full potential in me
That He has planned.
Lord, hear my heart
Let me be healed
Allow Your Holy Spirit
To reside within my soul
Let me love
With Your love
Let me speak
With Your words
Let me walk
With Your feet.
I am nothing without You
And I love You Lord...

Glory be to God.
