Behind These Shades

 

Image result for hiding from god bible verses

Behind these shades

Eyes are a little blood shot

Sitting here with just my thoughts

Lord knows I’ve seen better days


Behind these shades

I don’t see the world as it is

I think there has to be more than this

Lord knows I need to escape


Behind these shades

I can live in my own little corner

I can be a remarkable performer

Lord knows I’ve done it for decades


Behind these shades

I wonder what it’s all about

No one hears me when I shout

Lord knows I need to change my ways


Behind these shades

I can hide my pain

I know I’m the one to blame

Lord knows the demons that raid


Behinds these shades

I can hide my tears

I can hide my fears

Lord knows all these things I hate


Behind these shades

I can smile and disguise

Happy with a pocketful of lies

Lord knows I need His aid

Image result for bible verse on living in the dark

Behind these shades

The battle rages

Turning pages

Lord, He patiently waits


 

Behind these shades

Across this great divide

I can never hide

From God whose love never fades


Behind these shades

A light starts to shine

A light so bright it blinds

Lord knows nothing separates


I take off these shades

My mind blocks out the fiction

I can remember the crucifixion

All the lies evaporate

No One Cried

Image result for divorce

My new smash #1 hit song. Crossed over to country, rock , pop and Christian charts. #1 in 37 countries, over 3 million downloads.  That my friends is called visualization. Now let’s see what you think and make it happen.

Just add music and the right voice, maybe like Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October or Chris Brown from One Less Reason or Meat Loaf, but the last two have new cd’s out so maybe the next one and Blue October had new cd at beginning of year so…

No One Cried

No one tried

No one died

No one cried

We just walked away

Like tomorrow is just another day

No words left to say

We just walked away

No one died

No one tried

No one cried

 

Tore our world apart

Can’t stitch a broken heart

Cupid missed the mark

Too much hurt, too much pain

Does it matter who’s to blame

What did we gain ?

(No one cried)

 

Pulled out my hair

Thought I still cared

Looked for us everywhere

Thought I wanted more

Picked myself up off the floor

Walked out the door

(No One Cried)

 

We said forever

Made a vow together

Guess we forgot to remember

Doesn’t it make you sad

Doesn’t it make you kinda mad

How did it get this bad

(No One Cried)

 

No one tried

No one died

No one cried

We just walked away

Like tomorrow is just another day

No words left to say

We just walked away

No one died

No one tried

No one cried

 

No more slow dances

No more second chances

Maybe under different circumstances

The candle flame burned out

Nothing left to work out

Nothing left to talk about

(No One Cried)

 

Two became one became two

Apart we grew

Same picture different view

No one tried

To keep the love alive

No place left to hide

Tears from the past

When love was meant to last

The end slowly came fast

 

No one tried

No one died

No one cried

We just walked away

Like tomorrow is just another day

No words left to say

We just walked away

No one died

No one tried

No one cried

 

(Guitar solo  then next part is acoustic slow)

 

Maybe someday we will find

Why we couldn’t  hit rewind

Back to when you were mine

When you cross that memory

The one of you and me

And you smile for what used to be

When the memories fade

We remember what we once made

We will let a tear escape

 

As the love we had disappears

Throughout the years

We shared some tears

There’s no more left to cry

We said our final goodbye

Wish we would’ve tried

(No one cried)

 

No one tried

No one died

No one cried

We just walked away

Like tomorrow is just another day

No words left to say

We just walked away

No one died

No one tried

No one cried

 

I wish we would’ve tried

A part of me died

A part of me cried

I wish we, I wish we would’ve tried

A part of me died

I cried….

She Doesn’t 

Image result for superstitious

She doesn’t step on a crack

Afraid it’ll break her mother’s back

She doesn’t open an umbrella in the house

Doesn’t need more bad luck than she has now

She doesn’t make any funny faces

Afraid it’ll get stuck that way

She doesn’t walk in a black cat’s path

She’ll turn around, walk all the way back

She doesn’t walk under a ladder

She doesn’t think she can be any sadder

She doesn’t believe her wishes will come true

But she’ll throw a penny in a wishing well, sometimes two

 

She doesn’t care if others think she is deceived

She carries around a four leaf clover and some rabbits feet

She doesn’t cross her fingers or knock on wood

Seen so much bad she doesn’t believe in good

She doesn’t smile very much

Does her best not to judge

Image result for matthew 24 11

She doesn’t know about the man who died to save her

I saw her one day and told her about her maker

She didn’t want to hear any part

I prayer for her, prayed for her heart

A few weeks passed until I saw her again

She didn’t want to hear about Jesus, my friend

I asked her if we could just talk

She agreed and we started to walk

We talked about little things, like our jobs and the weather

She seemed to enjoy our walks together

She doesn’t trust most of those she meets

She slowly let her walls down over the weeks

I told her how I was once like her

Then someone told me about our savior

It wasn’t much longer until she said she wanted to hear more

More about this man I had mentioned before

I told of the words I knew

Gave her a Bible so she could read too

She doesn’t live like she did

She has a new way to live

She doesn’t believe in all that superstition

She has taken a new direction, a new mission

She doesn’t care about her past mistakes

She doesn’t remember her heartbreaks

She doesn’t live like she’s unloved

She knows she’s forgiven, she knows of grace from above

This Darkness

I wrote this several years ago when I was trying to turn the words into a song. That hasn’t worked out, maybe because I’m not as good  a song writer as John Cooper and Skillet.  The first two songs after the post reflect that. Some day I will get there. Just have to keep writing.

This Darkness

 

Even when I’m in this darkness

I feel your hand reaching out

When every night the skies are starless

You whisper and it sounds like a shout

 

I fall deeper and deeper in

I run from You, run from my shame

I sin, I sin, I sin, I sin again

I don’t understand how You still call my name

 

This darkness is overwhelming

Your voice is like a rope

This darkness is all consuming

Your word is my hope

Image result for God reaching down into the darkness

Why can’t I get out of this mess?

Why do I run from Your love?

When I am struggling to find rest

I hear You say lift your eyes  above

 

Everytime I feel your warmth shine

I run, I run, I run to the cold rain

Everytime You say give me all I says it’s mine

And I fall, I fall, it’s always the same

 

This darkness is overwhelming

Your voice is like a rope

This darkness is all consuming

Your word is my hope

Image result for 2 samuel 22 29

As I struggle to comprehend

As I struggle to understand

I hear you say this isn’t the end

and then I reach for your hand

 

This darkness is overwhelming

Your voice is like a rope

This darkness is all consuming

Your word is my hope

I reach for your hand

When I am consumed by all my problems

When I have hit rock bottom

When I can’t see through the darkness

I hear You say you love me regardless

I reach for your hand

For The Memories

momdad

For my mom. I know you will cry, especially being so close to dad’s going to Heaven three year celebration.  I am always thinking of you, praying for you, and loving you. Even though I don’t call home enough.

For The Memories

I booked that old hotel we always stayed at on the beach

The one you loved so much, the waves were within our reach

I made reservations at the restaurant you like

I took a walk on that trail you loved to hike

I bought that old movie you raved about

I know you love me, that’s no doubt

I bought two tickets to the baseball game

I had to laugh when it was cancelled because of rain

I got two scoops of ice cream, one for you, one for me

I changed the paint in the bedroom from blue to green

I got out that old rusty bike and took it for a spin

I was excited when we first got them way back when

I got out the boys old ball gloves

I think baseball was their first love

I dusted off all the old trophies they had won

Even though I knew the tears would come

CAM00457

I even got out a few of those old records

The scratches and hisses, the old covers made of cardboard

I got out the old photo albums

I remember  you were so handsome

I heard our granddaughter playing your old drums

I had to smile as she played to the words she would  hum

It’s all the small things I seem to miss

As I sit here and silently reminisce

All the things that were little all are now  grown

All the things we did together I now  do alone

For the memories,  filled with so much emotion

I reach for your hand and take a step into the ocean

A Fight Worth Fighting For

 

She took her place at the back of the bus

The other passengers looked at her in disgust

She was brave, walked to the front and took a seat by the door

Rosa Parks knew this was a fight worth fighting for

Abraham Lincoln said a house divided against itself cannot stand

Civil war ensued and divided our great land

All persons held as slaves shall forever be set free

The fight he fought forever changed our history

Martin Luther King Jr. helped create the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Non-violent protests, Ending legal segregation forever more

He had a dream, all will be treated by their character and not the color of their skin

Sometimes I wonder when will we begin?

Barbara Johns was just sixteen years old

Protesting the conditions at the school she was enrolled

A boycott of classes, Four lawsuits filed across the nation

In 1954, the Supreme Court outlawed public school segregation

July 26th, 1990, the Americans With Disabilities Act was signed

A progression in recognizing all people of all categories was defined

All people should be treated equally, even when they are different

Common sense if you ask me but the passing of this act was significant

Susan B. Anthony and many others fought for years

For women’s rights for all their peers

They fought for fair hiring practices, paid maternity leave and child care

They fought for equal wages, to be treated fair

He said : I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love  have always won

Gandhi fought for Indian independence and in 1947 it was done

He believed  different religions could live together peacefully

A seeker of the truth he taught endlessly

She said: Not all of us can do great things but we can do small thing great love

Sister Teresa fought for the poor and was an angel from above

She lived to help all those in need

God’s very own servant indeed

Tortured, beaten, murdered for what they believed in

They know that Jesus  died for all their sins

Death was no longer feared, lives filled with hope and more

They knew that was a fight worth fighting for

 

We can all work together to unite the world

Every nation, every man, woman, boy, and girl

Hold each other’s hands through open doors

We all know it’s a fight worth fighting for

Birds Of A Different Color

We sit on this branch all flocked together

All of us birds of a different color

We fly from tree to tree and limb to limb

Helping whoever is in need for we are all friends

There was peace in the land, air and trees

We were brothers and sisters, no difference between you and me

Until one day the robin said I can do better on my own

Off to another land he had flown

Then cardinal said, I can do that too

Off to another land he flew

One by one they each left the branch

Scattered apart through out the distance

The only bird that stayed was the dove

Because he still believed the answer was love

One day the cardinal didn’t like the land he was in

He flew off and attacked the land of the robin

Then the yellow finch thought his land was too narrow

He went and attacked the land of the sparrow

The robin and the sparrow started a new land

Joining together, they formed a very strong clan

They attacked the yellow finch and the cardinal

The destruction of all the land was quite remarkable

Then the eagle was flying around

He couldn’t believe the destruction on the ground

He knew he had to make a stand

He had to do something to unite the land

What could he do? he thought in his head

If he didn’t do something soon, almost all the birds would be dead

He could use force, tear all the birds apart

But today , love was the only thing in his heart

He wanted to try love, to put it to the test

He flew down to them, he was much bigger than the rest

When the eagle came near

All the birds cowered in fear

But he gave them a helping hand

He helped them rebuild the land

He said “My fellow birds, is this how we want to live?”

“Instead of taking, we should learn to give.”

“Remember the time when we were never in need?”

“When one of us bled, we would all bleed?”

“Let all of this land be united as one.”

“It doesn’t matter our color, or where we came from.”

“Give love, teach love, be the love you want to see.”

“You see I have learned, the greatest change has to happen in me.”

With that said,  the birds joined together

To make this land great again, forever

I Was Going To Change The World

 

I always thought I would change the world. Then I looked at the world and said good luck Rob.

When I look back on who I was and who I am I can honestly say I don’t think the world has changed me. At times it did. At times I was completely different than the person I knew was. I let external circumstances affect the internal me. If I were to count I would have to say those times I could count on one hand. God has changed me a lot more than this world ever could.

If you knew me when I was fifteen or now, at the ripe old age of forty five, I think you would say I am the same. Not all of that is good.  I don’t talk much. I keep my thoughts to myself. Not much bothers me. Some would call it emotionally detached but I call it life goes on. Does that make me a bad person ? I don’t think so.  Do people often think I don’t care or I am self centered ? I bet they do, but that’s not the case.

I don’t have a “Facebook ” life or a perfect marriage. It’s not all sunshine and roses. Sometimes it’s thunderstorms and thorns. I am being more vulnerable that I ever have and it’s scary. I know God is with me every step. It makes me braver. It doesn’t matter if people approve of me or what I write. I try to please one person only and since He gives  me the words I only hope they come out as He intended. I honestly don’t know how or why some of the thoughts I get pop into my head, often at the weirdest times.

A little over a year ago I felt God push me to start this blog. After many no’s from me and many yes’s from God, I started to write. One thing that I found when I was looking how to get followers was to be consistent in your theme. Consistent is one thing my brain doesn’t follow. Yes, I talk about God , life and music – but I am all over the place.

Whatever God puts in my head or on my heart.

So maybe I haven’t changed the world. But I haven’t let the world change me either. Maybe, just maybe, God has taken these words and changed one of you. Made you see things differently.  Made you think if God can do this for him then maybe He can do that for me.

If I helped change one person then that is enough.  Because maybe that one person can change one person who can change one person and when it is all said and done,

WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER.

I won’t be posting anything else this week to spend time with the family and disconnect from the world.

Here are a few of my posts over the last year plus a month. If you are a new follower and missed the old posts, feel free to click on whatever catches your eye. Maybe some followers that have been with me for awhile would just like to revisit some that touched you before. This isn’t all my posts.

The Moon Keeps Chasing The Sun

 

I thought I knew where I was going with this but it might just be a lot of gibberish. Basic idea is trying to live this life without Jesus is like….

The moon keeps chasing the sun all the while it is waiting to be caught

A very smart friend said I could use her thought

So there, I used it before I forgot

That got me thinking about more lines

That maybe you could use from time to time

After all not using your brain isn’t a crime

Like a  dog chasin it’s tail

Like trying to slow dance with a snail

Like catching the horse in front of you on a carousel

Like the imagination of a child with a box of crayons

Like the singer dying but the band plays on

Like when the band stops but you march on

Like trying to throw darts in a hurricane

Like trying to convince you I am 100% sane

Like being caught red-handed but saying you aren’t to blame

Like being broke and but looking at all you just bought

Like going to school and forgetting what you were taught

Like  writing a book when you can’t think of the next thought

Like having the answers but forgetting the questions

Like a rooster saying its a hen

Like an elephant trying to fit in a rabbits den

Like writing a poem and saying its a book

Like thinking you’re not in trouble when your mom gives you that look

Like saying that’s a river when it’s only a brook

Like catching a touchdown pass when the quarterback still has the ball

Lie wiinning the Indy 500 but on  499 your car stalls

Like having a house with no walls

Like trying to finish before you started to begin

Like saying you are perfect because you don’t sin

Like being a Christian and saying Jesus isn’t your friend

Like trying to play a game when you don’t know the rules

Like thinking you’re the smartest when you’re actually the fool

Like being in first grade and thinking you should graduate school

Like trying to out run a train

Like being a passenger and trying to fly the plane

Like knowing who you are but forgetting your name

Like seeing an empty cross on a hill

Like  running when Simon says be still

Like trying to lose weight with some magic pill

Like trying to pitch a perfect game after you walked the first batter

Like trying to put the pieces of a mirror together after it shatters

Like trying to live this life like none of it matters

I don’t have to be an art critic to recognize a priceless piece of art

I don’t have the answers but that doesn’t mean I don’t start

How can I say no to someone who is chasing after my heart

There is a simple truth to be known

Three days later the tomb didn’t have a stone

Why live  in the darkness when His light has shown

Some things are deceptively easy to see

A captive saying he’s really free

I guess it all depends on what you believe

Have we all become mad or are we just blind

There was a time in the distant past when people were kind

Now it just seems like everyone takes selfies of their behind

Like spilling a glass of red wine on white carpet but not leaving a spot

Like me saying I’m going to heaven while watching my soul slowly rot

I’m chasing the SON but all the while He is there beside me waiting to be caught

Be still long enough to know He is there

Pen To Paper

 

I start to put my pen to  paper

Before a word gets out I start to waiver

What if the darkness is too much for them to bear?

What if their reaction is they just don’t care?

No one will care, that’s what one voice shouts

No one cares what you are all about

Can I really let all the words go?

No, no, I can never let them know

I crumple it up and toss it away

Who really wants to hear what I have to say?

I will let the words vanish before I put pen to paper

Do they really want to hear my dreams?

Are they as impossible to reach as they seem?

I see the stars so far out of my reach

What words to toss, which to keep?

So many doubts controlling my thoughts

If I wrote a book would one copy be bought?

Throwing away more words in the trash

How long will I’m not good enough last?

How will my words make them feel?

Before I let the words become real

I will let the words vanish before I put pen to paper

I guess these words are coming from somewhere

Should I waste them by throwing them over there?

Here comes the truth, even though it may hurt

The voices in my head sometimes sound like a concert

One telling me this, one telling me that

One telling me to move forward, the other to go back

Twisted thoughts do battle with words of hope

Letting them all out is the only way I can cope

I look to God for a little inspiration

A few words of His He  gives me as a donation

I will let the words… No, no,  I will put pen to paper
