Oh man

Do not surrender to your slips
oh man,
dust off your past failings
Come out of the pit you were buried
Do not forever languish in regrets
Paint for yourself a new day
Find it and walk diligently in the new way.

You’re more than your mistakes
You’re more than your slips
Don’t get buried once again in that pit
Stand up, stand tall
You’re a lion!!

I pledge

I pledge to You oh my Father

To always be a wonder

To dream huge, to aspire bigger

To always ponder,  to be a thinker.
I refuse to surrender 

To cheap dreams,  to glittering wonders

I choose to look closer,  dig deeper

I choose You, I choose the proper.
I decide today to hunger

For Your presence,  to linger

At Your foot, listening for answers

In pursuit of you, not just Your power.
I make a choice to rise higher

To spread my wings to float lighter

To get rid of loads, the thoughts of being a pauper

I am done with the littleness of life, I want something greater.

Hide and seek


I play hide and seek with God

I do the seeking, He does the hiding

He hides in pages of love notes written in scripture 

He reveals it to me by His spirit

The more i know Him

The more i need to know.
He hides and hides in shades of light 

I search and search till i find

I still don’t  know  Him fully.

Eternity after eternity  i will never know Him fully

But i shall keep searching… i love this game.

Perfect

He said something to her

It accompanies her and she want to slit her throat

She sees all that was spoken over her

It is true, it reflecting back at her in her mirror

She believes it, she digests it and it lingers like a bad odour. 

I wondered  why she believed him

She replied, he was her father, her brother, her lover, a stranger

A stranger too?.. she smiled.. yeah a stranger

She’s bold, a lioness, a pillar to other girls but she’s  also fragile

Her emotions.
What shall I say to this beautiful  piece of God’s handy work

That she’s  enough, that she’s  gold, apple of God’s  eyes

How shall I break through the web of lies that she’s  believed 

How do i take a picture of her that she might look at herself again and smile… Lord teach me how to tell her she’s perfect…like You!!

The Blessings

Let every  season begin to work for me

I’m  done with the miracles  of the wilderness 

I want the blessings of the promised land

Let it rain on me in large portions.

Blessings  that pursue me till they run me over

Unlimited resources to do more than the needful

To have in abundance till it overflows

As it is in Heaven, so let be with me

I walk in it.

That Love Thing


Who made you this beautiful 

Who made you this pure

How can you  be this faithful

Without a flaw.
Who made you this precious

Something we die for

You playful but serious

You’re  perfect to a fault.
What song can I sing for you 

I bet it is yet to be written 

I drooling all over you, you bet I’m  smitten

I will always look out for you, There’s  nothing else to look forward to.
I know you’re  outthere

I know  I’ll  find you

Or maybe I have.

May my eyes be wide opened so I don’t  let you off my sight

Love and it mystery, may I soon be smitten by your might.

Journeys

It is funny how God knows  my destinations

My hurdles, my failings and my trippings

My fear, my freedoms and my cagings

He also knows who He’ll  bring along my way to help me.
This long trip of life doesn’t  make sense sometimes

When the pain is unbearable

The learning  curves, the unthinkables

But light  that shines  in the end always make them palatable. 

Lord, don’t  let me quit before I reach my destination

May I not  die before I’m  empty of these inner treasures

May I exhaust everything you put  in me

And touch all those you send to me.
