No hard feelings

She has all it takes to destroy you
inwardly and outwardly to cripple you
Filling you with shame for all your games
but her heart is past you
and is being deeply rooted in Him
Her strength for things of value
so don’t tease her to push you
while she’s at the edge of the cliff
no she is the edge of the cliff ,
She might just move from beneath you
saying , “no hard feelings *smirk* just the hard floor beneath you”

This is Your earth

You knew what You were doing when You walked through the darkness
When you decreed let there be light
to the earth’s last detail nothing came as a surprise
You perfectly planned everything out
but things haven’t been great
I know you see it
For He who formed the eyes does He not see
I know You hear our cry
Our cry for you to delay no longer
He who formed the ears hears

The turn out of things may surprise us
It may leave us mouth open
but I know You knew this would be the turn out of events
You put us in a bit of control  but you are still in charge
That is the best thing ever
No not us being in charge because it’s obvious we need You
Lest we self destruct
The best thing is you are still in control
We see that it isn’t so easy
So easy ? Now I’m downplaying it
Things aren’t easy at all
no matter how hard we try to work alone
or pretend that we got this
We exalt the wisdom You put there
Singing our praises when things go as we plan
Forgetting that You already ordained it to be so before it happens

All things work together for good
the expectations of the righteous shall not be cut off
Though we are in pain
yet we would rejoice
No, not in the absence of troubles
Not in the absence of the confusion that comes with uncertainties
but in all these
We are more than conquerors
We do not appreciate peace when there is calmness
but we appreciate peace in the storm
You are the prince of peace
Teach our minds to seek You
and our hearts not to give up

This is Your earth so let me trust in You
for You are an everlasting rock
It is better to take refuge
To take refuge In Him whose very voice is the thunder
Whose countenance is like the sun
The Sun of the sun
Under Your shadow I would abide
Whose breath is the very wind
It is better to take refuge in Him
Whose permanence is the reason for my existence
Who is not here today gone tomorrow like man
Beautiful flower we are, as green as that grass
but we would be blown away
After much noise and life struggles
Silence is the reward and history we become
So trust Him who is History , the Present and  the Years to come
Ancient of days

This is Your earth
So nothing surprises You
For you do everything according to the counsel of Your will
You place a king and pull down one
His very heart is in Your hands
The high and haughty You bring low
and the humble You uplift
If you let wickedness go on
You have a purpose
For when righteousness is revealed
There is no doubt or difficulty spotting the difference
Even the darkness is not dark to You

Under your everlasting arms I’d rest
Under your pinions I’d take refuge
since you are in control of every detail
then in Your arms is where I want to be
I know though our flesh waste away
Our soul is being nourished in and by You
Do not let me wonder away from your presence
Do not let me trust in your earth and all that is in it
Let me not be lost in its beauty and riches
but forever remember its temporariness
For in a twinkle of an eye it flies away
Let me forever till eternity trust the creator and owner of the earth
In your sovereignty would I rejoice
There is hope for my times are in the Lord’s hands
This is Your earth

Hadassah

Those were days you hoped for
but did not achieve
Moments you prayed about
and it seemed no one was listening
you fought but no one knew what the battle was
the days you were perplexed and beaten
clobbered by life’s uncertainties
Mind wrestled, with thoughts of pain

Why did I let you come close
Why did I come close
Filthy garments
where did your friends go
why did my friends go
why did we leave our friends out of it

Past!!

But,
These are days you’re living in
now here are balms
to sooth your once bleeding arms
ointment to salvage you cracked knees
with which you knelt night and day
Praying and seeking answers
with this water I wash you
these are perfumes to add fragrance
No, to change your fragrance
Making your life stand out
No one would mistake what you stand for

Present !!

These are the days you hoped for
when comfort comes from every side
friendship felt in every silence
Mercy, love and hope released from every corner
Compassion from the east ,west, north and south
Hadassah from Yeshua

Forever !!

 

“What Ifs” and “But God”

These are moments we wonder how life goes
Where life goes and why it goes the way it does
when decisions are made
The outcomes leading to thankfulness or
a few regrets
When circumstances grace us with our expectations
and a few pleasant or unpleasant surprises

These are the times when our hearts , thoughts and lips
are filled with questions
Mainly what ifs
As we recall the past mistakes, misunderstandings, decisions,
With this questions we hope to amend the past
and predict the future

What if I had studied a different degree
What if my plans for the future fails
What if I never dated him/ her
What if i was dark or fair
What if i was as outspoken and not let people walk over me
What if tomorrow never comes

What if I get married and the marriage doesn’t go as planned
What if my friends don’t call me back
What if my whole life was a dream
What if i picked her call, may be she wouldn’t have gone and gotten killed
What if I trust my heart to someone that does not take care of it

Our minds filled with questions that of blame, doubt and fear
What if my kids don’t love me the way i love my parents
What if i got married to someone different
What ifs may not be negative but could be one that stirs up gratitude

One major “what if “that stirs a joyous answer ,
What if Christ did not save a wretch like me
What if I was left to myself in this sinful world without a redeemer
and the answer not far fetched
But God in His wisdom and mercy came to redeem me
I f i had been the only one He would have come anyways

So let’s set aside the “what ifs” that stir up doubt
and cling unto the But God
But God in His mercy would supply all my needs
But God is my helper
But God meant everything for good that which they meant for evil
But God is slow to anger and abounding in love

The “what ifs” stirs up anxiety
The “but God” stirs us hope and rest in God’s sovereignty

Don’t Call a spade a Hoe

Don’t Call a spade a hoe
Where murder is called choice
fornication is called dating
Lust taken as love
Where the so called right to choose
reaps an unborn baby
of the right to live
where lies are tagged white lies
where abuse is called dancing

Where a baby is called a fetus
to make oneself feel better
as the baby is reaped limb from limb
by a man/ woman who clams to be helping the girl
when in actual fact he wants his pocket to smile
The girl who claims she is not ready to bare a child
but was willing to enjoy the pleasures
that led to the conception

Do not play the rape card!!
This is being done mostly in non-rape cases
but for the rape cases,
I cry with you and may you be comforted in Christ
but using a sin to heal a sin would never cause healing
Do not let your unborn child
drink the hurt they knew nothing about

Where the death of an animal
is deeply mourned more than the lives of millions
of babies killed by “doctors”
Where adultery is called an affair
where vulgar speech is seen as cool
Where selfishness is called self worth
where greed is taken as a search for fulfilment
standing for the truth is taken as hate
Speaking the truth as being judgemental
where male is taken as female and vice versa
Where boastful speech is taken as testimony
or confidence

Where a lady is called holier than thou
because she decides not to show some skin
but wait!! she does
Isn’t her hands or palms or elbows showing
or see her feet and calf
what covers those areas, isn’t that skin?
Oh you meant the skin of her regions
which is not meant to be on display
to your thirsty eyes

Where little or no cloths
is taken as expressing ones femininity
and embracing ones body  type
Taken as being bold
and without a care in the world of what any one says
or the temptation they offer
leading men to sin in their thoughts
and disrespect them in their heart
Sometimes viewing them at tools and objects

Where a young girl or boy in their teens
is laughed at by a group of “friends”
when they are all making plans to lose it in their sixth form
But he or she says they are saving it for marriage
Don’t shrink back guys and girls on this path
Your decision is pleasing to God
Before whom you and
all your friends would give an account

Don’t call a spade a hoe
Where Lies are applauded
because it goes with protocol and policy
but sincerity of heart and speech is trampled upon
This is the world we live in
where being politically correct prevents one
from mentioning, God (Christ)
Or prevents one from talking of  his believe in Christ
and how this believe governs his lifestyle

where those who stand for Christ are killed
or mocked
We were warned and it is expected
so let us not be surprised
but hold on to our strength and great reward
Christ!!!In every labour
But let us not call a spade a hoe

Where this piece would be tagged as ;
a hate speech
each line tagged as judgemental,
A confrontational toned piece
not speaking the truth in love 
but that’s ok
I rather call a spade a spade
It’s not about pointing fingers
but pointing fingers where it needs to be pointed

I will not call a spade a hoe
In my life, as God opens my eyes to my shortcomings
as i study His word and warn me through people
when i say or do things I should not or 
don’t say or do things I should
when I am filled with pride
forgetting i came into this world with nothing
and would leave with nothing
though it hurts to use the spade in my life,
I rather call a spade a spade
and run back to Christ in repentance 

We are in the farm of our lives
Our daily activities and daily lives
With a spade but we call it a hoe
When faced with situations that go contrary
To our values and believes
When we are confronted and asked questions
To see what our stand is or
for people to get validation

Take courage farmers in the vine yard
Call the spade you carry a spade
and use it to uproot all falsehood
All fear sown by farmers leaving for now
Trying to shut up everyone
serving that bitter pill, Truth
Who think they have forever in this life
To continue  ploughing with a spade
but because they’ve been blinded
by the god of this world ,
they call it a hoe

Thinking the harvest they get would last forever
but it won’t
for time would tell
and it would be in the favour of those who stood for the truth
Those that called a spade a spade!

My 50th post !! Thankful
Audio to be released for following posts soon

Majority of me

Would you love me each day with ever hour of your life ?
Would you close your ears to the voices of those that want you ?
You say you will and your love would do much more

So majority of me wants the love you offer
It knows you’d take good care of me
It says I’d be just safe in your arms
It says my heart would dance
when you sing your love to me with your actions
That’s what majority of me believes

Majority of me wants to say yes to your love and affection
It wants to hope in the hope you have for our future together
It wishes to set sail with you to our forever together
And rest at the shore of your heart

Majority of me wants to serve you yet stand beside you
It says , “wake up and smell the coffee of his love”
bathe in the perfume of his willingness to sacrifice
It says, “This could be an example of Christ’s love for his church”

Majority of me tells me life with you would be amazing and full of love
It sees us as man and wife
It says I’d find rest in and with you

But my darling,
Minority of me says and sees different
It has a loud voice and wears glasses
I hope the majority shuts it up soon and breaks it’s glasses

Parched Soul- 1

I drank tirelessly of the well
I had no thirst whatsoever
It filled me and in it’s satisfaction i rested
My soul well hydrated and
healthy, withstanding every vice

Now I have been thrusted into wilderness
the distractions that surround me
the unworthiness i feel when i fall short
how can i drink of that righteous stream
when dirt is lurking in my soul

I haven’t drank in days
yet it fills like a year
though surrounded with the well of salvation
I have no strength to draw
I need my joy restored

I am by the fountain of life yet dehydrated
I have let my shortcomings tell me I can’t drink any more
I am weak and my soul has started to get pale
this extreme need yet surrounded by the solution
but i can not fully embrace it

A few days ago, i felt drops on the tongue of my soul
and a few trickle from head to toe
giving me renewed strength
as i cried for mercy and grace to fight
but I am in need of several splashes and many buckets full
I would rather be over hydrated

I have looked to water substitutes
the juices of this world
yet i am even more parched
my soul yearns after you,
Lord
