Fight or Flight 1/30

The fight-or-flight response is a physiological reaction that happens in response to a perceived harmful event or situation What could be seen as a threat to survival I have been in flight all my life Running to, away from, in response or a reaction of… Since I left home I have been running towards the light Been rocking and knocking in the midst of prayer cause a present help in times of trouble wasn’t always present I have been petitioning through partitions asking God to reveal his promises to me Using my vision to see beyond my sight in search of the light at the end of the tunnel Picked up a pen and became the hand I needed in times of encouragement Picked up a pen because it was the only choice between a rock a hard place Picked up a pen because it was the ram in the bush Picked up a pen because it’s the one thing that I would do even if I wasn’t paid… and still be happy I was running in search of something that was more than the nothing that surrounded me Developed a faith deeper than my obstacles Told God if nothing else than to use me as a vessel Changed the perception of my perspective and gave it to Jesus Took the evidence of things not seen and allowed faith to be the substance of the things I hoped for Allowed the works of action to show my faith wasn’t dead Deep dived into the pool of the barren until the only way to birth the seeds inside of me was through Fertile Ground I am the miracle of a harvest not seen until it is reaping It is done because he wrote it as such in the beginning, I just had to run far enough to find myself Stay in pain long enough to lose the distractions Count down the contractions of my tribulations until nothing was left but to pray until something happened P.U.S.H Been pushing these poems Pushing these plays Pushing these books Pushing this hope Pushing this faith Push to served God first…. That’s when he revealed my purpose That’s when my harvest broke the surface
