The day I met him (A poem)

Its been a while since I’ve written a poem and when I first started blogging it was basically all poetry all the time.  Of late my blogging has changed. I started to just write whats on my heart and it usually isnt poetry.  Poetry is a good way of ministering to people.  I know a lot of poets that are in the faith who go super hard as poets.  I love poetry I feel like its a craft that I can use to minister to people also but I’ve only done one poem since I’ve been in the faith and I am going to display it here.  What better place to post it, right? lol Well here is it is the debut of my poem on Deja Chosen Daily “When I met him” in its renewed state.

I can’t stop thinking about the day I met him.
You know how you wanna talk to somebody but your mouth won’t let you,
Then your heart jumps out and gets you…because it gets you.
Then your mind starts going this way and that way and you wonder why.
Your tummy is full of butterflies and throat gets all dry.
Then— Wait what’s with the nerves I mean he is just some guy. Right?
Wrong! Cause the thought of him wouldn’t pass on by.
See this wasn’t just some random dude. He didn’t approach me with the typical
“yo can I talk to you” You know, all rude.
And as a matter of fact I spoke first and I thought I was the worst but not at all.
He responded shyly and probably thought I was just some girl.
But truth be told I guess I just wanted a good friend.
See this is a God fearing man and most girls didn’t understand.
They thought his fear of God and Love for Christ was just a front
But I had a feeling it was real and although it was hard for me to trust, I did.
See I wasn’t always Christ like and I came to God only when I was in trouble.
Like that “I need prayer quick, on the double!” kind of trouble.
I was sort of trapped in this bubble thinking God was only good
when he got me out of a tough situation.
 
When He and I became friends my faith increased and
I believed that the closer I was to God the closer I was to Jesus the closer I was to peace.
All my troubles would seize and at least I would have someone to turn to.
But with out the word of God faith is lost.
And you must surrender to him at any cost
cause see his love is so real and so deep that nothing can seep between your relationship.
See he taught me so much and I thank God because without God I would be without him.
And I stand before many today confident in my father in heaven.
I stood before many before I knew who I was in Christ
I could not stand strong alone in my life’s plights.
I know my parents weren’t perfect either
Thats why they fell so Christ could be the redeemer
 
 
I still sin but repentance keeps me clean
and my lord and savior hit the cross because he was keen
On that fact that we would die of our ruthless sin
So God bore his son to save us and now we’re forgiven.
What but God’s unmatchable grace and mercy would save us
Frome the cold wretchen bondage and sins that enslave us.
But most of us take it for granted and granted most of us are blind
and have in our mind that we don’t have to pay God any mind.
So we sit in front of tv and laptop screens watching and doing crazy things.
We say the obscene and see the scene of the sinful and disgusting
and  every single day still talk about God and Jesus with hypocrisy
sliding off of our tongues and then flip the script with scriptures flipped to
to flip the truth make it seem as if we can justify the lie
and try to stand strong in our wrongs when its simply just wrong.
 
So you exchange good faith or should I say lose it for lucifer
who should be your foe and you please him instead of your lord God
and trod with your head down and eyes low afraid to look up and face him
ashamed and full of dismay you may be dismissed on judgment day
when he comes back for this world where you play the devils tricks
and fall for his schemes and he will have you right he wants you; way down deep
in the fiery pits of hell but most of us don’t see that hell is where you will be if you, like eve,
trust the evil but instead of being cursed with pregnancy you’ll see your skin burn and as the
devil churns your soul and turns your role into being his slave instead of a righteous wise slave of God.
And without this man in my life who God has let cross paths with me I wouldn’t pay any of this mind
and in good spirit and in fear of the man upstairs I say I will have earned and won the title of his Ms. Proverbs 31.
 
So thankful and grateful that Christ has changed who I am within
No longer will there be any intentional  corruptible sin .
 

Technology and your personal life

I just want to get something out there that most people probably have been catching on to and if not hopefully I shed some light on it for you today.  SO anyways, I go on YouTube this morning and I click sign in and I notice the page just refreshes.  SO I look up the problem and see if its just me for if anyone else experienced the same issue and it turns out that google addresses it in their forum. I find out that I have to remove the cookies from my browser. Now all that means is that all the sites that you normally go on that you have to sign in to already have you signed in when you go to the site. Now when you remove them you end up just having to type in your user name and password.  That was cool with me even though I tend to forget passwords but either way I cleared all the cookies and I was finally able to sign in to youtube.  But after signing in I noticed that my real full name was displayed which for those of you who don’t know is Latisha, but everyone calls me Tisha.  I sat and thought for a while asking why the heck is my full name showing up and so I say ok let me go ahead and make a user name.  I go to my profile settings and I go to change my display name and low and behold I basically can’t.  Google has a new rule now that says all users have to go by their real full name because its more realistic and people will be able to know who you are and recognize you because they know your real name.  Now first of all I thought the point of usernames were to be unique because a lot of people have the same first and last names so therefore you wouldn’t be able to know who is who especially if they don’t have a picture or something.  So I see options for you to pick how your name can be displayed and none of them give you the option of choosing the nickname they let you create and f.y.i the nick name cannot be your first name so don’t try and put it there thinking you name will be displayed like that by itself cause it won’t.  but I started thinking what if I don’t want anyone to know my real name.  Not that I have something to hide but just for privacy’s sake.  I mean its not like I’m applying for a job or signing something super important. Its just watching and posting videos.  And then I started thinking well what about those people who made usernames in the past how come their usernames are displayed but now if anyone tried to sign up they don’t have the option of choosing a username at all.  I don’t think we should get on these websites and just sing up anymore we should really think about the kind of info we are putting out there before we just sign up for these accounts.  Anyways I just wanted to let you guys know to be cautious and careful about these websites you sign up for.. A lot of times viruses can get onto your computer through these sites and its because of the cookies the websites have that enable them to remember your information and spammers can get ahold of that and ruin you computers. God bless guys and BE CAREFUL!
