Hello everyone, I go by the name of Gracia Devon. I am new to blogging and I am super excited to be apart of the blogging community. What inspired me to start blogging is my new journey to becoming a Christian. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences and what I learn through out my Journey with you all. I am open and looking forward to receiving feedback and stories, bible verses, quotes, poems etc.. from my readers. Let the blogging begin! 🙂
Take me back before all of the hurt and all of the sorrow, before there was ever a tomorrow-
Take me back to the times when a smile could light up a room, with such a unit one can feel the happiness that could never be taken away; till this day-
Take me back as I slowly attach the apple back to the tree, as I step down kneeling on one knee-
Heaven and Earth where there was only you and me-
Set the clock back as I cry and beg for forgiveness, can you hear my sharp plea? –
As I convince you to let me live for eternity-
Reach down from above and hand me life’s pencil so that I can erase you and me; for when you are gone there will be no more me-
Take me back to where I didn’t need a vision to see, that my destiny was designed right in front of me-
Reverse my tears and dry them up won’t you please?
Not for a couple of years, oh what a tease, maybe this time for eternity-
Take me back to where the river use to flow, at night time when the sun would set the stars would begin glow-
Leaving not a soul around to show, only you and I could ever know, implanted in our hearts as we continued to grow…
As I inhale my deepest breath but never my longest, I sit and listen to the crickets sing as I await for the morning-
My heart is heavy, but my mind is on an overload, rushed with emotions and feelings that has been taken overboard-
As I sit and I look up to the sky, I ask myself why?
Why does life have to be the way that it is, or what I’ve made it out to be, preventing life from being the way it is destined to be-
I’ll never know, or allow my true feelings to show-
What it all means to me, what life means to me, what he means to me, what they mean to me-
All I can do is look up to the sky, admiring the beautiful clouds as night arrives, and hope and wonder, will the sun ever shine? Or will my days always be so cloudy and so cold-
I look up to the sky but eventually my hopes and dreams begin to get old-
I look into the sky and over the horizon of the ocean, as my life begins to go in slow motion-
Never loosing hope, only gaining trust, that there is so much more out here than just lust-
As I look into the sky, I watch all of my dreams and inspirations, twinkle like stars in the sky-giving me every reason not to question god, why?-
— Gracia Devon–
Maybe I’m foolishly filled with hope, hope that I can be all that I choose to be, all that stood between you and me-
Maybe I am stuck in this world and I will never know, maybe my hopes and dreams of success will never show-
Am I hopeful that one day I will succeed, is hope for success permanently implanted in me-?
Drowned in success my heart will bleed, pouring out all of my dreams and all of my ambitions, and all of my visions of being everything that I’ve envisioned-
I will take off the shoes that have been given to me-
Because I cant stay still because its driven in me-
And push back all of the lies, all of disgrace and let it flow back as I stand in my place-
Where I am going is further then the sky, further then the title that you’ve given you and I-
– -Gracia Devon–
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
This is one of my favorite prayers that I say daily that is in the bible. It prepares me for my day and reminds me of my higher power and after life. I believe that to die is to be born again in Christ. I am curious, what impact does this prayer have on you all? Also do you have any favorite prayers that is in the bible that speaks to you?
