Pulling Weeds

Pulling Weeds by Gianna Elyse

Sitting on the sidewalk
Watching birds find their purpose
I just wanna reach the surface
To breath
So I'm waiting on the sidewalk
Pulling Weeds

I was made to fly
Much like a sparrow
Mocked in the spotlight
With no strength to fight
I know where to borrow
Pulling weeds at midnight

Shuffles on the sidewalk
Strangers' feet are hurried
I can taste the dust as they talk
They can't see I'm drowning
I look up

I was made to fly
Much like a sparrow
Mocked in the spotlight
With no strength to fight
I know where to borrow
Pulling weeds at midnight

Where do you go when you need solitude?

Solitude can feel painful, because so many fail to master it. My solitude is found in Jesus Christ. I love to walk in nature, because I feel close to Him, as it all points to a magnificent Creator (Romans 1:20). And when I do not read and apply His Word to my life, then I am failing to find solitude (James 1:22). Prayer is also an important aspect of solitude, as it expresses reliance and trust in God through every circumstance, because “Nothing of eternal significance happens apart from prayer” Jerry Falwell Sr.

In Hebrews 4, the rest that believers have in God is considered in greater detail.


Verse 16 says: “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12

When I fail to find solitude, things like envy and depression seep in. The scripture rings true: “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12

Jesus said: “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.” John 15:4

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. John 15:9-11

And I saw that all toil and all achievement spring from one person’s envy of another. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:4

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21

take a walk everyday
