Soul Loss
What can you buy with the ultimate sacrifice
When you gave up your path to eternal paradise
All that we touch and see will never ever last
For the Almighty promise everything will turn into flame and ash
So will you give up your soul for a piece of the spotlight
And walk down the road darker than a moonless night.
My friend let me help before there's no time left
I'll show you the path to be blessed and have rest

My Valentine
On Valentine's Day, I think about
The people who are dear,
How much they add to life's delight
Whenever they are near.
You've always been a total joy,
Such pleasant company,
I very much appreciate
Our compatibility!

Adultery
Your infatuation with the world has grown
You’ve really matured it and made it your own
I think you’re ready to move on to the next step
Have you sent out the wedding invites yet?
I must question, though, whether your groom is content
To let you speak with love of the man you left
For I still hear you speaking so confidently
About your commitment to the man I watched you leave
Yes indeed, I still see you often in His house
Sometimes with your old photo albums out
Recounting the days, as if they were yesterday
What does your new love, the world, have to say?
Or is he permissive, and rather happy
To let you divide your love between Him and he
Ah I see, he takes no issue
As long as you honour him by the things that you do
In that case you are doing rather well!
You really are walking steadfastly to hell
As long as you do so, it doesn't matter what you say
Betray your first love, and say you love Him anyway!
Ah, but my dear, I'm afraid there’s a problem here

A Prayer
God, grant me wisdom
To see through Your eyes
God, grant me wisdom
To fight Satan's lies
God, grant me wisdom
To live every day
As though Your returning
Were moments away.
God grant me courage
To seal not my lips
God grant me courage
Help keep me equipped
God grant me courage
To hide not my light
To shine with Your glory
And fight the good fight.
God grant me refuge
When evil assails me
God grant me refuge
When I come to calamity
God grant me refuge
A place of His rest
A haven of safety
When I am oppressed
God grant me hunger
For more of Your truth
God grant me hunger
Though I'm but a youth
God grant me hunger
A yearning for You
A thirst for Your water
A longing anew.

Breaking Chains
I struggle and scream
Wishing it all to be a dream
These chains pull me down
Dragging me into the depths of despair
Please Save me
Break the chain set me free
All I see is never-ending strife
Give me the light of life
Where is the light
Where has it gone, nothing seems right
Then I see it, a light
The demons scream at the very sight
They yell out the name Jesus
He rips of my chains leaving me speechless
I have seen the light, it now lives inside me
Sorry Beelzebub I have found the light

Uneven Love
Awhile ago I read from Ephesians. It says "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her." This is a impossible task for any man. The author is saying I should love my wife as God loves us. I am one person I cannot match the love that God give us. In 1st John it states "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." I will always try my hardest but no one male or female can love their partner as how God loves us because His being is love. And by trying to match that is unattainable. But don't let that discourage you from trying to love how God love.

Praise Lord all the earth. Praise him for who is more deserving than He.Praise our God the creator of the heavens and earth. Praise He who gives free salvation to all the nations.

Yesterday vs Tomorrow
The sins of yesterday May haunt us. It may leave upon a stain our souls. Torturments us with our daily failures. Tomorrow is a new day, a day of redemption and forgiveness, a day of praising for His grace and justification.

The Dream
I woke up with the scars on my arms and legs completely gone I was standing up in the middle of the sky see all of the Milwaukee Skyline wearing a gold and white check it and a gold and white T-shirt with a huge cross on it gold shorts with a lightning white trim and golden basketball shoes. I was flying upwards towards the heavens I I left the earth atmosphere but still somehow able to breathe and I was able to see the entire planet. And I was able to see all the constellations  a magnificent sight A great voice all around me told me told me to choose the Earth or the Stars I spoke and no sound came out the great voice says excellent decision then I woke up out of my bed confused as hell what did I choose.

A Roaring Flame
For a long time my heart was a icy cavern. Then the Spirit spark a flame of faith inside that cold Cavern. The ice cavern in my heart was melting away the flame inside me got more intense the coldness in my heart was gone and the flame is roaring with passion for the gospel. The faith that God blessed is a faith that will not be easily snuffed out.

My Love
Into your beautiful eyes,
with raw obsession I stare.
With each passing breeze,
I watch your smooth silky hair.
But that's just the beginning,
next comes your voice.
As I hear you approach,
with each word I rejoice.
When you're walking towards me,
it's just the way that you move.
I can't wait to hold you,
as I totally approve.
Our lips unite in celebration,
while holding you close.
The love that we share,
is like a scent from a rose.
Our hearts sing together,
with each passing beat.
I live for these moments,
they're always so sweet.
I love you my sweetheart,
there's so much more and beyond,
these words that I speak,
are just the tip of our bond.

My Redemption
This is my illusion
Beneath the dirty walls
And fallen towers
Digging through the debris
All that's left in me
Blinded by a twisted reality
This is my surrender
Bathed in Your rays of light
And everlasting hope
Lifting my hands to free
All that's left of me
Finally opening my eyes to see
And this is my redemption
Wrapped in Your sweet warmth
Stepping into Your sun
All that I have become
And all the lies You've undone

What is a painter without his brush? What is a poet her pen? What is a Christian without love ?This is clearly rhetorical. Obviously the painter cannot envision the world how he sees it without his brush. The poet cannot inspire others without her pen. For they are tools of the occupation. So in the same way Christians cannot be Christians without love. For our job is to show the love of the Father by loving one another. This task may be hard and difficult. The painter imagine his next Masterpiece and the poet can have severe writer's block. Yet they continue on even through the severity of their situation. So let's envision the world how our Father want it and speak life even in the dead of night.
What can you buy with the ultimate sacrifice
When you gave up your path to eternal paradise
All that we touch and see will never ever last
For the Almighty promise everything will turn into flame and ash
So will you give up your soul for a piece of the spotlight
And walk down the road darker than a moonless night.
My friend let me help before there's no time left
I'll show you the path to be blessed and have rest
17 years of God's grace. I look back over all the years reflecting my how blessed I am. God placed several people in my life to support me and there when I help the most. Naming everyone who support me and still continue to support me would be too long for a deviantart post. I admit I am not that amazing without my family and friends who give my strength enduring my hardship. I confess my life is the story of God giving his undeserved love to a kid filling with discernment for His word inside him and creating a passion to preach the message of salvation. I thank God and all who love me for bring me to seventeen years of life.

Ah, but my dear, I'm afraid there’s a problem here
Your  former love was abundantly clear
That He is furiously jealous and will not be ignored
Did you skip over it, or ignore that clause?

Your adultery has settled the grounds for divorce
And you proudly accept it, though of course
I’m not convinced you ever were
Anything but the world’s betrothed

The irony makes me want to laugh, or cry
For I just cannot reconcile this in my mind
How in one breath you declare your love for Christ
And in the next declare your sinful ways with pride
God, grant me wisdom
To see through Your eyes
God, grant me wisdom
To fight Satan's lies
God, grant me wisdom
To live every day

I recently discovered that I am the only active at admin of ChristianPoets. I can still accept people submissions into the folders but I can't add anyone to feature because it required two admin votes but I'm the only one that's active therefore I can't add anything to featured and I believe that's not fair so is there another person who like to be an admin of ChristianPoets. The only requirement I ask is that you are active enough accept people artwork.

I'm a fighter for the pacifists .I'm a voice for the oppressed mute. I'm a missionary of justice. I am Montrell Washington; this dream I will achieve. My determination and passion make these things reality. I need to stop putting too much pressure on myself. I need to stop bringing myself down so one day I can raise everyone up. I allowed myself almost snuff it out. But now after some self-reflection my passion hotter than ever before. My mind finally put back together. My soul at peace. I am Montrell Washington I will not allow anyone including myself stop me achieving my dreams.

I would say to myself and other "I fear no man,I fear no death and I fear no devil.", but now I afraid of one woman. She is gentle and beautiful as a flower. I love her "just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her". She love me back, yet I afraid that I will disappoint her somehow. I fear that I'm not good enough for her. I fear that I won't strong enough to protect every time. My fear always paralyzed when love gets involved. I don't know what to do. Maybe I should stop relying on my strength but rely on His strength.  
  • Listening to: My Heart.
I invited the love of my love to thanksgiving dinner. I'm super nervous. She said yes. Now,I feel a got shot in the stomach.
I loved darkness. I loved not caring a damn. I loved being a lying thief. I relished in my sins.The Spirit changed my heart and mind.Now, I have passion to save anyone through the gospel. I know in my soul I'm justified freely by his grace through the redemption of Christ Jesus, yet I feel this dreadful guilt inside me. It eating me alive. I beg for forgiveness from God and from the others I did wrong against. 2 years later, I still feel a devil in saint skin.
