HEALING BROKEN HEARTS AND WOUNDED SOULS

Lay your Isaac on the altar and leave him there

We all want God to do great things in our lives. We want Him to use us mightily.

We want to be carriers and transmitters of the presence, power and glory of God.

But there is one great condition that must be fulfilled. We must lay down our all.

We must let Him empty us of all, strip us of us, then He can trust us enough to put AK47s in our hands.

Have you put Isaac on the altar? Have you left him there or you are about to take him back home because you do not trust your God enough to entrust your life into His hands?

THE POWER OF SPEECH

 

Some are ordained to be our eyes

Others are sent forth as ears for us

Many are our hand to touch and feel

Still some are called to be our mouths.

Yes, mouths to speak out loud and clear

For the dumb and for the down-trodden

To raise an awareness, to sound the alarm

That we be able to mend our ways.

Not that they are perfect in themselves

Not because they got it all together and right

God has given them a mandate to speak

And who can shut them up and be at peace?

John the Baptist spoke out, John Wycliffe did too

Jesus spoke ever so clear, against the wrong and the wicked way

John Huss spoke and died at the stakes

John Calvin wrote, Luther spoke and was ran out of the church.

They paid the price, they got the prize

They gave me freedom to worship my God

Many were shocked, many resisted

But today we eat the good fruit they labored for.

So dear, dear brother; sweet, sweet sister

Tell me I didn’t say it well; I’ll mend and I’ll correct

Don’t tell me to shut up and pack out for good

For the fire within is too hot to be quenched.

I will speak out

I will say it

If I die, let me die

If I perish, I perish.
