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.

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.

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.
