"People always told me,
from past to present,
“You talk too much,
be quiet,
reflect.”
Well I have reflected.
They tell me I am controversial,
they tell me my heart for the broken is silly,
they tell me my heart pumping
ba dum
ba dum
ba dum ba dum
for the justice of Jesus,
is too out there.
My Jesus is controversial,
my Jesus loves the poor,
my Jesus works in the worst places,
my Jesus lives in the most dusty heart,
my Jesus lives in the immigrant,
my Jesus lives in bloody fences,
my Jesus lives in the radical.
And Daddy…I am so..
tired.
of arguing
of loving enemies,
of denying myself the right of self love.
Daddy,
my heart is beating fast again,
Daddy,
did your veins in your heart rip when you saw the woman at the well?
Daddy,
did you feel your bones creak as you walked towards the yelling at the tax collector..
Daddy,
did you know that we are all monsters under children’s beds,
waiting to be appeased,
as you hung on the cross,
waiting to descend into the depths of our dirty messed up broken souls..
Daddy,
did you know one day you’d redeem us?
Daddy..
Did you feel your heart rip from your chest in joy
as you saw the monsters turn back into prince and princesses?
Daddy..
save me
because my heart is tired,
it is worn.
It is bitter.
It is tired.
Daddy,
I am not sure how much more my heart can take these ripping veins.
Because I choose not to wage war on the marginalized,
because I choose not to hate my neighbor,
because I choose to love the one who loves differently than I,
and because I choose to radicalize normalized christianity.
Daddy,
did you know I long to be with you?
Daddy did you know,
I love you this much?
Daddy..
did you know I will go to the ends of the earth for the monsters,
Daddy, I will hitch a ride on the missiles of hatred to show them the sun of salvation,
Daddy,
can you make us lovers who never leave their beds because they want to be at each others sides?
Daddy,
can you make us into listeners, so that we are like the sea, there, waiting, listening, watching, just there.
Daddy,
make me into a heart, with veins that cannot rip,
make my compassion into an understanding friend,
saying I love you no matter the circumstance.
Daddy,
make me into a friend.
May I tell the marginalized you are loved.
Teach me.
I want to know.
I want to know how to get rid of this tiredness..
I want to be whole.
Teach me how to do justice and be like the sea..
Listening.
Waiting.
Watching.
Seeing."
This tiredness of justice makes me exhausted, but Jesus teach me how to be new in You by jesusiswhatthisworldneeds (via jesusiswhatthisworldneeds)

Sad that it takes a white dude saying what black people have long been saying for other white people to understand but regardless, he’s not telling any lies here.

spiritualinspiration:

Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 to “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Notice the key in this verse: seek first the Kingdom. In other words, don’t seek the blessing, seek the One who blesses. Don’t be consumed by things. Don’t chase after money, fame, fortune or a bigger “this or that.” Instead, chase after God! If you will seek Him first, then all of His blessings will be added unto you. Not a few things. Not a half a dozen things. God is a God of abundance, and He says “ALL things.” In other words, when you keep Him first place, you won’t be able to contain all the good things that He will bring across your path! He’ll fill you to overflowing. He’ll give you things that money can’t buy. You can work 24/7, but you can’t buy health. You can’t buy strength. You can’t buy a good night’s rest. Seek first the Kingdom, and God will reward you!

That word “seek” is a strong word. One definition says “to require as a vital necessity.” That means we should consider spending time with God as vital to living a victorious life. That means no matter how we feel when we wake up, no matter how tired we are on Sunday morning, we are going to get up and honor God as if our lives depend on it!

Today, make sure things in life are in the right order—seek first God’s Kingdom. Seek His way of doing things. Honor Him at the start of your day and make it a part of your routine. As you do, you’ll see His reward on your life, and you’ll see all of His blessings added unto you!
