Behind the shade of silent progress
Spotlights are yet to find me out.
Till my work speaks for me
And the world gets to meet me.
In the everyday crowd
Polishing my craft with sweat and midnight candles
With a prayer here, a confession there.
Soon i will be hidden no more
Then, you’ll say it happened overnight.#kjay
Let it rain in abundance
Let us have a new dance
Showers of blessings,
Have a romance with our dry land.
I declare the land is green
I declare the land is fertile
Abundance of rain,
Flood off the blood stains
Flood off our past pains.
New season be here!
Do not surrender to your slips
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 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.
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.
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
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!!

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.
