Friends with benefits!

Posted by appolus on February 20, 2017

So, I was talking to a young woman this morning. She is in her 20s and is a smart and good looking young lady. I asked her about her weekend and she told me she spent it with her friend. Oh, I said, not your boyfriend? She kinda struggled with the words to tell me yes, but not really. I asked her what that meant? Well, we have not called ourselves that. I asked her how do you introduce each other and she said as friends. I asked her if she loved him and after some struggling she said yes but you cant say that, you have to wall it in. And I asked her if love could be walled? ( which is where the idea from the poem below came from) Bottom line she said they were friends with benefits. I asked her who that really benefits? I told her she was worth more than that. She is not the first young person I have spoken to who are afraid to commit to a relationship. It seems that the 20 something generation are terribly insecure, am I right or have I gotton it wrong? Here is the poem ……………..

Can love truly be walled
Does it really matter what a relationship is called
Even if we deny the word for fear of rejection
I think what is really happening is called protection

So, you have given what you have away
Do you really think he is gonna stay?
You love him but you cannot say it aloud
Your introduced as a friend when he is with the crowd

A friend, really? Is that all it is?
Is this what you imagined before your first kiss
When you dreamed of love and being swept off your feet
He can sleep with someone else and he is not even a cheat

And so love dwells deep within your heart
Are you truly close or are you really worlds apart
Is he there for the benefits and that’s all he really wants
And dreams of relationships are nothing more than taunts

And so love is real and it can never be walled
No matter if your “only” a friend and that’s all your ever called
This is not your destiny you are called to something higher
A commitment, a promise, a ring, is what you should require

Overcoming mountains

Posted by appolus on February 20, 2017

Have you ever seen the mountain goat traverse almost vertical sheer cliffs? It is a sight to behold. In the making of these goats God withheld fear. It is as if the mountain is not there. There is something in their very make up that causes them to move with ease in surroundings that would kill almost any other living creature, God made it so. When gross darkness comes upon us brothers and sisters, there is a perfect love that casts out all fear. We traverse the mountains and the valleys and the shadows of death with power and love and a mind that is stayed upon Him. He is your strength and He will make you fearless when the time comes and you will walk in high places. Even in the midst of great turmoil and chaos, peace will reign in the hearts of the saints whose eyes are stayed on Him.

The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon my high places. (Hab 3:17-19)
